The World Lottery Association endorses the Lottery Holiday Campaign
The World Lottery Association (WLA) joins the North American Association of State and Provincial Lotteries in endorsing the campaign, which has one simple message – that lottery tickets are risky gifts for children.
The WLA Security Committee (SRMC) has, over the last two years, been working on updating the WLA-SCS standard: 2012. The objective of this revision is to maintain a standard that meets a constantly evolving security context. In addition, certain developments in the lottery industry, including the growth of games delivered by means of remote digital interactive services, require the integration of associated security and integrity parameters.
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.
