Responsible Gaming Standards
The European Lotteries are committed to address illegal gambling and related criminal activities while at the same time minimising any potential harm on society and vulnerable groups, in particular by means of a controlled expansion of gaming education and prevention.
The Code of Conduct is intended to reassure the public that State Lotteries and Lottos are reliable and responsible operators, which also offer sports betting games that are enjoyable and readily available. The current version was approved by the General Assembly on June 4, 2014.
The EL Members have adopted the EL Sports Integrity Action Plan, the 7-point programme, a policy document that clearly demonstrates the position of the European Lotteries, its commitment to the fight against match-fixing and its firm support to the EPAS initiative towards the adoption of an international convention against the manipulation of sports competitions. The document calls for 7 concrete actions in the field of sports integrity.
By adopting the Sport Charter in 2012, the EL Members have formalised their commitment to defend the values of the European sport model in light of these new challenges to the integrity of sport.
Since 2019 EL has published an Annual Report, which provides an overview of activities from the past year.
The EL Report is a survey circulated to all EL Members once a year in order to gather data on the lottery sector in Europe.
