Guyana Lottery Company’s ‘BLAST Gaming Centre’ coming soon
On Friday (February 5), the Guyana Lottery Company (GLC) will officially launch its new Company-store on Mandela Avenue, East Ruimveldt, Georgetown.
The ‘BLAST Gaming Centre’ is an $84 million investment that will cater to gamers who enjoy the company’s sport betting, virtual and Video Lottery Terminals (VLT) brands.
“With an ambiance that’s unmatched anywhere in Guyana, gamers will get chance to ‘cash-in’ on amazing prizes in the comfort of a secured environment,” the GLC said in a statement on Wednesday.
In 2017, the GLC expanded its portfolio with the launch of Video Lottery Terminals (VLT’s) with the Brand Name BLAST- a new and exciting addition to the dimension of games-of-chance already offered.
“Available in more than 25 gaming rooms countywide, from Berbice to Port Kaituma and Kwakwani to Lethem, BLAST is a favorite pastime in all 10 Regions of Guyana. The expansion and accessibility are important factors on the Guyana Lottery Company’s radar to ensure that those who wish to play our games are able to do so conveniently,” the GLC added.
The release added: “The Guyana Lottery Company will continue raising the bar by offering new and improved games that thrill and captivate players and will be rolling out company-owned stores offering fantastic player-experience, a safe and secure environment, responsible gaming protocols and COVID-19 regulations.”
In keeping with the COVID guidelines, the new venue would be open from 10:00h to 21:00h and will offer 35 VLT machines, with eight games per machine.
The dress code is Smart Casual and only persons above 18 would be allowed to play. Employment would be provided for 15 persons through this initiative.
