The popular National Lottery will be broadcast for the last time on e.tv this Saturday.
From April 1, the Lotto show will air on SABC2. The announcement was made yesterday by the Lotto operator, Gidani.
Gidani's chief executive Bongani Khumalo said: "In order to reach as many people of varying income levels as possible, in urban as well as rural areas at different times of the day, it was decided to go with the SABC."
The National Lottery was launched in 2000 on SABC2.
In March 2003, the Lottery draw and television game show moved to e.tv and remained with the channel when Gidani took over the operations in 2007 from Uthingo.
Khumalo said: "We are most grateful to e.tv for hosting the live Lotto draws and game shows. However, with a single free-to-air TV channel, e.tv's footprint is limited when compared with the national broadcaster's reach, which has three TV channels and 13 radio stations."
He added that Gidani wanted to involve as many eligible players as possible, and "this can be done by using television channels and radio stations".
From April 4, the Lotto game show will be screened on Saturday from 9pm to 9.30 pm.
