The WLA Global Lottery Data Compendium 2016


There continues to be strong demand from WLA Lottery Members and external stakeholders for accurate data on the state of the lottery industry worldwide. Responding to this, the WLA publishes an annual Global Lottery Data Compendium (GLDC).

The GLDC is based on a number of key performance indicators, such as sales revenues and money returned to good causes. It helps to promote the role that WLA member lotteries play globally in raising funds for society, and also provides valuable business intelligence for WLA Associate Members.

All of the information reported in the GLDC is sourced directly from WLA Lottery Members and WLA Associate Members, with every effort taken to ensure the correctness and completeness of the collated data. The indicators are carefully selected to assure compliance with competition laws.

The WLA Global Lottery Data Compendium 2016, covers data provided by 97% of WLA Member Lotteries and 99% of WLA Associate Members. As such, the GLDC 2016 represents the most authoritative and accurate account of the global lottery industry to date.

The WLA Global Lottery Data Compendium 2014


The WLA Global Lottery Data Compendium 2014 is now available. 73 WLA Lottery Members and 32 WLA Associate Members contributed their data to provide the WLA with this first ever digest of the global WLA membership.

From the executive summary providing a snapshot of the current state of the global lottery industry through to the comprehensive individual entries on WLA member lotteries and WLA supplier members alike, the WLA Global Lottery Data Compendium 2014 provides timely, accurate, and comprehensive statements on the WLA family of lottery and supplier members.

The WLA Global Lottery Data Compendium 2015


Following on from the success of the inaugural edition of the WLA Global Lottery Data Compendium (GLDC), we are very pleased to be able to present the second edition of the GLDC to the global regulated lottery community.

Considerably revised and expanded, this second edition of the GLDC sees a considerable increase in the number of members contributing. 90% of the WLA's regular membership of state authorized lotteries, and 88% of the WLA's associate membership of providers of goods and services to the lottery industry, have contributed to this volume. Given the near-blanket coverage, the GLDC provides the most authoritative and accurate account of the global lottery industry available today.

All of the information reported in this work has been sourced directly from WLA Lottery Members and WLA Associate Members, with every effort having been taken to ensure the correctness and completeness of the collated data.
