The World Lottery Association (WLA) has awarded Scientific Games its Responsible Gaming Framework Certificate of Alignment, which is valid on five continents.
The WLA award was granted after an extensive and independent process, auditing Scientific Games’ continued improvement in terms of responsible gaming practices across its lottery operations for both retail and digital products and services.
Mélissa Azam, the WLA’s Senior CSR Manager, commented: “In the global lottery industry, Scientific Games has truly established its leadership role within responsible gaming. The company’s Healthy Play Program, which provides lotteries with real tools to support their own responsible gaming programs, demonstrates Scientific Games integration of the WLA Responsible Gaming Principles throughout the organisation, and its investment in the future of the lottery industry. The WLA is proud to support Scientific Games’ Global Responsible Gaming Certification and congratulates the company on its longstanding and continued commitment to responsible gaming.”
In 2020, Scientific Games initiated the Healthy Play Program, which aimed at the promotion of healthy enjoyment of games via player education. The company has also created a lottery employee responsible gaming training program, customisable in both content and languages, to ensure companywide awareness and understanding of healthy, responsible lottery play. In 2022, the company plans a Healthy Play website that is customisable for individual lotteries and accessible by lottery stakeholders using a QR code.
