Temporary suspension of WLA seminars and events

In light of the continued spread of the coronavirus, the WLA has decided to suspend all seminars and events until further notice. This includes all seminars in cooperation with the five regional associations – ALA, APLA, CIBELAE, EL, and NASPL – as well as any committee meetings that were planned to be held in the immediate future.

A decision on the World Lottery Summit (WLS 2020) has not yet been taken. A move to suspend WLS 2020 will depend on how the situation with the coronavirus develops in the coming weeks.

We hope these measures will not cause any undue inconvenience. This decision was not taken lightly, but with the safety and interest of our members in mind. Following the best advice of government health officials around the globe, we will continue to monitor the situation and update WLA members as needed.

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.
