Founded in 1999, the World Lottery Association serves the interests of its members – state lotteries and suppliers to the gaming industry – throughout the world. The organization is committed to advancing the collective interests of its members, protecting the lottery industry from corruption, and advancing responsible gaming. The association also provides a forum for the exchange of technological innovations and leading-edge marketing concepts.

The WLA consists of suppliers to the gaming industry and 150 state-authorized lotteries worldwide. The organization’s Illegal Lotteries and Betting Committee advises its member lotteries on combating unauthorized lotteries. The group also develops and promotes a worldwide accreditation program for gaming industry suppliers. The Global Lottery Monitoring System is an information hub that enables global surveillance of lotteries.

The Macolin Convention is an international lottery convention that seeks to protect the integrity of sports, protect the rights of athletes, and to call for sanctions against aiding and abetting sports manipulation. The Association is also involved in promoting the adoption of the Macolin Convention.

The Association has a Global Lottery Monitoring System (GLMS) that consists of 29 lottery operations from 27 countries. The GLMS fights match fixing and corruption, and helps member lotteries develop multi-jurisdictional games.

The GLMS helps lotteries fight illegal lottery operations, and promotes good causes. It also provides a forum for discussion on gambling in Europe.

The World Lottery Association also aims to protect the integrity of the sports betting industry. Its International Gaming Research Unit focuses on psychosocial factors that affect gambling. Its Good Causes Foundation also focuses on good causes, including health, education, and youth development.
