Background Information

Gidani a 89.2% Black Majority owned private company, is an extraordinary world-class South African Lottery operator with a multiple heritage.
As an empowerment company Gidani’s business ethos is fortified by its profound commitment to the issues of Broad Based Black Economic Empowerment.
Formed in 2005, to compete for the licence to operate the South African National Lottery, Gidani prides itself of being the first lottery operator to offer 34% of its revenue to good causes, since the South African government’s introduction of the National Lottery in 1999.

Of note, is the fact that the shareholders have over the years demonstrated an unflinching allegiance to Broad Based Black Economic Empowerment.
