Adesso has been awarded Level 2 certification by the World Lottery Association (WLA), becoming one of the first software manufacturers to meet this essential security standard.

Level 2 is the highest level of certification granted by the WLA and adesso underwent a ‘comprehensive’ and ‘demanding’ assessment to achieve it, passing without any reservations.

The IT service provider has supported lottery companies around the world for over 20 years and is now steeped in the digital demands of the gaming market, successfully implementing numerous projects at international level and offering strategy consulting to firms.

Professor Dr Rüdiger Striemer, Senior Vice President Lottery at adesso, commented: “Trust is a vital currency in an industry where lotteries and sports betting operators handle vast sums of the public’s money.

“Excellence in processes and solutions is the foundation for building trusting relationships with industry stakeholders, national supervisory authorities, and especially players.”

Adesso made its mark in the lottery industry in 2021 with a number of compelling innovations like adessoDraws, a ‘revolutionary’ blockchain-based electronic drawing system for digital lotteries.

“As a long-standing partner to the sector, adesso is naturally one of the first movers and delighted to receive this certification,” added Striemer.

The WLA currently boasts 140 state lottery companies worldwide and its standard is regarded as a key benchmark of security, risk management and integrity for the sector.
