Rwanda, in east-central Africa, is surrounded by the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Uganda, Tanzania, and Burundi. Steep mountains and deep valleys cover most of the country. Lake Kivu in the northwest, at an altitude of 4,829 ft (1,472 m), is the highest lake in Africa. Extending north of it are the Virunga Mountains, which include the volcano Karisimbi (14,187 ft; 4,324 m), Rwanda's highest point.

The National Lottery is operated by Tilia Games, an entertainment solutions provider under the licence of Lotto Rwanda. The first Rwandan National Lottery was launched in mid-December (2008) lunder the support of GSI, a gaming company believed to have launched 20 lotteries in USA, Europe, and South Africa.
