About the WLA

The World Lottery Association represents the interests of some 140 government-controlled lotteries from more than 70 countries with combined annual revenues in excess of $120 billion. As well as providing services to members to help them serve their markets better today and in the future, the WLA's mission includes promoting corporate social responsibility in lottery operations, improving the public’s understanding of lotteries' role in society and responsible gaming issues, lobbying on behalf of its membership with the support of the regional lottery associations, developing partnerships with worldwide sports federations, and setting worldwide standards in such areas as security and risk management.
The World Lottery Association was formed in August 1999 by combining AILE, the International Association of State Lotteries, and Intertoto, the International Association of Toto and Lotto Organizations.
