Following consolidation of its activities in 2012, the Loterie Romande has recorded a slight increase in gross gaming revenues (GGR), which were CHF 378 million over the full financial year 2013. Net profits remained stable at CHF 206 million. This positive result means that the high level of the sums distributed to projects benefitting the public is maintained. It is due in large part to the changes in the tax system which came into force last year: the raising of the threshold for collection of withholding tax on lottery wins to CHF 1,000.00 and the abolition of the "droit des pauvres" tax in Geneva canton made lottery games and sports betting more attractive.
