The Dominica Lotteries
Commission (DLC) came into existence as a statutory corporation on 7th February
1994. This gave birth by the coming into effect of the Dominica Lotteries
Commission Act No. 10 of the Commonwealth of Dominica.
However, even before
the advent of the DLC, there existed in Dominica a Management Contract with
Apex Services to manage and sell Instant Ticket Games or Scratch Games under
the direction of then director Mr. Alvin Knight.
This contract operated very
successfully, until the Government of Dominica took the decision to cease the
Management Contract with Apex Services and implement its own Lottery business.
Thus, from February 7th 1994 the Dominica Lotteries Commission was established
by a decision taken by the Cabinet of the Government of Dominica which was
supported and approved by Parliament.
In 1995, Canadian Banknote Co. Ltd.
(CBN), a technology provider introduced the Diskette System to the DLC which
allowed for the introduction of the game LOTTO. This was the first big jackpot
game which generated increased interest and participation in the lottery in
Dominica. Canadian Banknote Co. Ltd. (CBN) later provided the lottery with a
Store and Forward system which gave birth to the regional game Winlotto, which
brought further diversity to the Lottery products offered. In 2002, the daily
game Daily 3 was further introduced to the range of Lottery products.
January 2007, the company CBN Dominica Inc., a subsidiary body of Canadian
Banknote Co. Ltd was incorporated under the Companies Act of Dominica. On
August 1st 2007, under a management contract between Canadian Banknote Co. Ltd.
(CBN) and the Dominica Lotteries Commission, CBN Dominica Inc. took over the
management of the Dominica National Lottery to continue to manage and offer the
Lottery Games. This arrangement developed as a result of negotiations with the
Government of Dominica. This venture was not new to Canadian Banknote (CBN), as
they currently manage several Lotteries with more games and bigger prizes
throughout the Caribbean and internationally.
Today, CBN Dominica Inc. has
vastly transformed the lottery and continues to provide the Dominican playing
public with a wider variety of games with bigger and better prizes, through the
first ever new and modernized touch screen machine which was introduced in May
