Public backs P.M's lottery call

Moe Tauti, 40, Fasitoo-tai

The Prime Minister is right. The local lottery is enough for us. We should focus on the lottery we have here because people are spending a lot of money on it. Good on the Prime Minister.

Ale Aleipusi, 40, Toamua

It's been a while since a Samoan person won from this overseas lottery. It is not like the lottery here in our country where people often win. So the Prime Minister is right. The local lottery is enough. The local one will help our country because we are sure that money is going into our country

Falekoa Pogi Kelekolio, 59, Lotopu'e

I am not a person who plays the lottery because of my church but I think the Prime Minister is right. We should restrict it to Samoa. It is a waste of money if there is no chance of winning. 

Muagututia Lemusu, 74, Falealili

The Prime Minister is right, the local lottery is enough. The foreign lottery should be removed from our country. We should support our local lottery, even if we don't win but we are sure that the money is going into our country.

Falanisisi Mose, 61, Sinamoga

I support our local lottery. We don't really know what has happened since the investigation is ongoing but I support the Prime Minister. 

Oleti Sam, 50, Satapuala

 I used to play Sportslotto but it has been a while since I played. I support the Prime Minister, the local lottery is more than enough for us. The Australian one should be removed from Samoa. We should continue to use and support our local lottery.
