The World Lottery Association (WLA) and GeoComply

In a world where fraud and security remain top concerns, the need for state-authorized lotteries to maintain their probity remains paramount. The World Lottery Association (WLA) takes its responsibility to protect the gaming sector from criminal activity very seriously and is dedicated to combatting illegal lottery operations across the globe through the work of its Illegal Lottery Betting Committee.

WLA is committed to working with its members and associates and external stakeholders to deliver data on the global lottery industry that is precise, authentic, and reliable. To that end, the WLA publishes the WLA Quarterly Lottery Sales Indicator and the WLA Global Lottery Data Compendium.

GeoComply is now an associate member of the world lottery association (WLA). The company uses device-level geolocation to deliver anti-fraud solutions to diverse industries, including gaming, financial services and cryptocurrency, media and entertainment, and retail and e-commerce. Its solutions provide a holistic view of the customer journey and protect against fake account creation, promotions or bonus abuse, stolen identities, account takeovers, money laundering and other forms of fraud.

The world’s leading supplier of responsible gaming technology has been awarded the highest level of Responsible Gaming certification from the World Lottery Association (WLA). GLI was one of the first companies to receive the WLA’s highest Responsible Gaming certification – Level 4 – and is the only company in the industry that has achieved this.

The WLA is the global professional association of 152 state-authorized lotteries and their suppliers across six continents with combined revenues of more than $250 billion. They share a common commitment to promoting social responsibility, addressing problem gambling and supporting good causes. The world’s lotteries raise approximately USD $1.5 trillion for society each year.
