The WLA responsible gaming framework was developed to help lottery operators understand how to implement these principles and protect consumers. This framework comprises seven principles that promote responsible gaming and is structured in four levels of achievement. Each level of achievement reflects the extent to which a lottery has implemented the seven RG Principles. A higher achievement level reflects a more sophisticated responsible gaming program. It is also based on the number of WLA member lotteries.
