Since 2010, the WLA has been collecting and compiling lottery sales data from WLA members around the world on a quarterly basis. Currently around 35 lotteries, representing approximately 60% of global lottery sales by volume, provide these figures to the WLA.
The WLA Global Lottery Data Compendium showcases a number of key performance indicators, such as sales revenues, GGR, and money returned to good causes. It helps to promote the role that WLA member lotteries play globally in raising funds for society, and provides valuable business intelligence for WLA Associate Members. First published in 2014, WLA Global Lottery Data Compendium provides a substantial pool of historical data that can be used to analyze long-term global trends in the industry.
