In 2018, the WLA continued to act as the global standard-bearer for the state-regulated gaming industry, supporting state-sanctioned lotteries in their august mission of raising funds for good causes. The association vigorously promoted the remarkable contributions to society made by its members, while simultaneously defending the lottery industry's core values of integrity, security, fair play, and responsible gaming. These developments were reflected in the WLA's activities, such as publicizing and promoting the USD 82.3 billion WLA members returned to society in 2018 and supporting member lotteries and other relevant stakeholders in the fight against illegal gaming, synthetic lotteries, and match-fixing in sport.
Scam Mails! If you have received any communication saying you have won money, it is a scam !
Currently, scammers are using World Lottery Association (WLA) letterheads and sending out letters (by e-mail and perhaps otherwise) purportedly signed by WLA functionaries informing people that they have received prizes or winnings in some form or the other. Please note: The WLA does not offer any games and therefore has neither prizes nor winnings to offer. Also, the WLA does not request any money nor ask for bank details from players etc.
The WLA is taking what action it can to stop these scammers. In the meantime, we urge you to mark the mailing as scam, inform your provider, and delete the mail. Do not reply under any circumstances or fill out any forms or provide any personal or professional information.
