Playwin Lottery

Playwin is an online lottery run by the Sikkim government. It was one of the first such lotteries to be opened in India. Established in November 2001, it has operations in many Indian towns and promoted by the Essel Group through Pan India Network Infravest Ltd. You can play the games available at playwin online either with your PC or mobile.

Playwin is operated by a Pan India Network Ltd

Pan India Network Ltd. is part of the Essel Group, one of India’s most prominent business houses. Its diverse portfolio of assets is worth some 108 billion Rupees ($2.4 billion), covering operations in packaging, media, entertainment, technology-enabled services, infrastructure development and education, as well as Sikkim’s online lottery.

The Group has been in business since 1976, starting out as commodity trading and export firm called Rama Associates Limited. It has since grown into a conglomerate that symbolizes the power and ingenuity of Indian entrepreneurship, now featuring a workforce of some 8,000 employees worldwide.

Headquarters in Mumbai as a division of the Essel Group, Pan India Network Ltd. provides all the infrastructure, data communication, marketing support and services required to facilitate a secure lottery network. Since the launch of the original Sikkim Super Lotto game on March 5, 2003, it has developed Playwin into a nationally recognized lottery and gaming brand.

Access to Playwin Lotto Games was initially limited to some 3,500 retail outlets where fixed lottery terminals were installed. These were developed with the assistance of California-based International Lottery & Totalizator Systems, Inc., a global leader in computerized wagering equipment and systems. However, the market was greatly expanded in 2008 with the introduction of “ Cards,” which brought the experience of lottery play to the nation’s online community and a new generation of Playwin Lotto Games fans.
