Sports Lottery luck runs out for the second time

Cambodia’s weekly Sports Lottery, which is owned by Sport Social Affairs Co, Ltd and proposed to help raise funds for the National Olympic Committee of Cambodia, has been suspended for the second time since its inception in 2010.

According to company owner Ly Lun, the lottery tried to tweak its format and rules when it was relaunched early last year but failed to attract sufficient sales to ensure a profit.

Staff members, who wished to remain anonymous, told the Post that they had not received wages from the company for the past two months.
