The Global Lottery Monitoring System (GLMS) has shared its 2020 Annual Monitoring and Intelligence Report which explains key facts and figures from its monitoring and intelligence work over the first six months of 2020 in the service of its members.
The report includes the lottery integrity body’s main highlights from the past year, namely educational activities including a global webinar with the World Lottery Association and European Lotteries, as well as with projects including Integrisport and Integriball, and policy work including with the Council of Europe and the EU.
GLMS’ growth in 2020 with its executive committee and team as well as its digital events are talked about in the report as well.
The Cyprus Sports Organization (CSO) and the Tennessee Education Lottery Corporation (TEL), the integrity body’s latest members, are interviewed in the report too. The CSO is GLMS’ first sport associate member following the launch of its updated statutes, and the TEL is its first regulating member and its first US member.
The report contains a showcase of its 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?’
A special interview is conducted in the report as well, 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.
