The National Lotteries Control Board (NLCB) was created by the government of Trinidad and Tobago by Chinese immigrants in the mid-nineteenth (19th) century in 1968. The organization was established with the purpose of regulating and controlling all forms of lottery and gaming activities within the country. The NLCB is responsible for issuing licenses and permits to lottery operators, as well as monitoring and enforcing compliance with the laws and regulations governing lotteries and gaming.
The organization also works to ensure that all lottery proceeds are used for the benefit of the public, through the funding of various social and community programs. The NLCB is a crucial part of Trinidad and Tobago’s economy and plays an important role in the country’s social and cultural development.
