Background Information

The lottery of French-speaking Switzerland Society was created in 1937 by the cantonal Governments of Vaud, Valais, Fribourg, Neuchâtel and Geneva.
The canton of the Jura joined them in 1979.
The objective of the Loterie Romande is to organise lottery games in strict compliance with cantonal and federal laws and regulations.

The Lottery Romande pioneered the introduction of scratch tickets in Europe. In 1978 the lottery launched Tribolo, and in 2000 ranked 3rd in Europe in terms of per capita sales of this type of game. It ranks 1st for the sale per inhabitant of keno type games (LotoExpress and Banco Jass).
In the world ranking of State lottery companies, the Lottery Romande comes 30th in per-capita sales of all types of games taken together (instantaneous tickets, number lotteries and other on-line games of the keno type, with the exception of Tactilo).
