The world lottery association is an international trade organization that serves the interests of state-authorized lotteries and suppliers to the global lottery industry.
The WLA offers a program of seminars and related events throughout the year, bringing together specialists from different cultures around the world to share their expertise and experiences.
Responsible Gaming Standards
Members of the WLA are committed to promoting social responsibility, as a cornerstone of their business operations. This has led to the development of a set of principles that address the lottery industry’s relationship with a wide range of stakeholders, including governments, regulators, treatment providers, researchers, communities, players and their social networks.
Security Control Standard (SCS)
The World Lottery Association has developed the WLA-SCS, the only international standard for lottery security management. It couples a comprehensive information security management baseline incorporating ISO/IEC 27001, a leading international standard for information security, with additional lottery-specific controls representing current best practice.
