The World Lottery Association is an international trade body which represents the interests of all participants in the lottery industry. The organization is comprised of member organisations and associations, such as the International Association of Lotteries and the European State Lotteries and Toto Association. It also includes European lottery operators and gaming space suppliers such as EveryMatrix. The WLA’s website has comprehensive information on its members. Here’s a closer look at some of its more prominent members.
The WLA’s member countries include state-authorized lotteries, sports betting operators, and suppliers to the global lottery industry. WLA member states are divided into Regular Members and Collaborating Members. Regular Members are authorized to conduct lotteries and sports betting operations in their countries, while Collaborating Members are non-member stakeholders with observer status. Associate Members are suppliers to the lottery industry, including game developers, consultants, auditors, and more.
The WLA also acts as a standard-bearer for state-regulated lotteries and supports member lotteries throughout the world. Its members return over USD 82.3 billion in annual revenues to society. WLA also works with member organizations to fight illegal gaming and synthetic lotteries and to combat match-fixing in sports. The organization has many other important roles in society and is the voice of the lottery industry. So why should you join?
