The World Lottery Association (WLA) provides a unified voice for state lottery and gaming organizations worldwide. It is comprised of the International Association of State Lotteries, Intertoto, and Lotto Organizations. Having over $250 billion in annual revenue, the WLA’s member organizations adhere to the highest standards of responsible gaming and social responsibility. They contribute most of their net revenues to good causes. As such, the WLA provides vital information to its members.
The World Lottery Association also has other committees, including the LAE, which represents European State Lotteries and Toto Associations. And the WLA also has several Honorary Members, including Guy Simonis, who was responsible for introducing lotteries to North America. You can learn more about each group and its members on the WLA’s website. In addition, you can follow the organization’s latest activities on Twitter and Facebook.
The WLA has a variety of programs that help lottery operators meet their ethical and regulatory obligations. One such program is the WLA Security Control Standard. Certification under this program helps lottery operations earn regulatory acceptance and player trust. Moreover, it boosts brand loyalty and organizational performance. Additionally, the WLA works to protect and advance the interests of its members, including preventing corruption, and ensuring the integrity of state-authorized lotteries and sports betting organizations.
The WLA Global Lottery Data Compendium contains information on member lotteries and their revenues. As of 2020, these lotteries have generated USD 284.3 billion in revenues and returned 74.9 billion to society. They play a significant role in supporting social causes around the world. In addition, the WLA also sponsors the Macolin Convention, which addresses the problem of sports competition manipulation. A world lottery association website also lists information on international lotteries and the Macolin Convention.
