Following the success of the KCOOS project which sought to promote the Council of Europe Convention on the Manipulation of Sport Competitions and support states with the implementation of its provisions, the CoE together with key partners and stakeholders, including the INTERPOL, the Lotteries (GLMS-EL-WLA), Ethisport, RC3 and Partners and a number of states, including France, Switzerland, Norway, and Cyprus, launched today the follow-up project which will seek to go even deeper and further and have a world-wide impact.
Lotteries grow 1.8% first-half on first-half; growth in Asia Pacific offset by sales in North America.
Lotteries worldwide improved marginally on their modest start to 2017, with reporting lotteries posting a second-quarter on second-quarter aggregate increase in sales of 2.7%, for a first-half on first-half aggregate increase in sales of 1.8%. As in Q1 2017, positive growth in Asia Pacific was offset by a contraction in sales in North America.
