Lottery Lore, the autobiography of Guy Simonis, details the career of the author – a career that developed in parallel to the evolution of the multi-billion dollar global lottery industry. Guy’s professional life is revealed in the book as a mixture of fate, strategy, risk, and diplomacy, that culminated in the founding of the World Lottery Association (WLA) and brought him international renown as an educator and authority on the global lottery and sports betting sector.
The Women’s Initiative in Lottery Leadership (WILL) was conceived in December 2016 with the aim of advancing women into leadership positions in the lottery sector. Expanding its reach across the globe, WILL continues to go from strength to strength, creating a path for talented and passionate women professionals to realize their full potential.
During the first quarter of 2019, global lottery sales rose 4% in aggregate over the equivalent period in 2018, with growth in Africa and Latin America pushing ahead of Asia Pacific for the first time in a year.
Each year, the National Council on Problem Gambling (Washington, D.C.) and the International Centre for Youth Gambling Problems and High-Risk Behaviors at McGill University (Montreal, Canada) invite lotteries to participate in the Holiday Lottery Responsible Gambling Campaign. This campaign is designed to raise awareness about the risks of underage lottery play during the holiday season.
