Lottery integrity body Global Lottery Monitoring System (GLMS) has released its 2020 Annual Monitoring and Intelligence Report, which outlines the organisation’s main highlights, key facts and figures for the year.
The GLMS has experienced significant growth in 2020, in particular its executive committee and team has expanded in addition to its schedule of digital events.
The report contains interviews with the body’s newest members, the The Cyprus Sports Organisation (CSO) – GLMS’ first sports associate member – and the Tennessee Education Lottery Corporation (TELC), which is the first US member as well as the first regulating member.
Notable highlights identified in the report include a global webinar with the World Lottery Association and European Lotteries, as well as collaborations with Integrisport and Integriball and policy work with the Council of Europe and EU.
Furthermore, the report contains a showcase of the body’s supplier associate members Scientific Games Digital, IGT, Sporting Solutions and Intralot.
GLMS’ supplier members also answered the question: ‘How have you handled this unusual year and how have you endeavoured to support the work of the lotteries in such an unpredictable period?’
Finally, the findings from a special interview are featured, casting the spotlight on GLMS’ analysts in its three monitoring hubs in Hong Kong, Denmark and Canada, sharing their experiences and work during the lockdown and how they managed.
Last month, GLMS elected Lori Sullivan, EVP and COO at Canada’s Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation to its Executive Committee.
