In addition to EU and national laws, EL Members operate strict standards to provide secure and fair operations that manage the risks of fraud and other forms of crime.
Fight against match fixing
As a founding Member of the United Lotteries for Integrity in Sport (ULIS), formerly known as GLMS, EL works to fight against match fixing and to safeguard the values and integrity of sport. EL adopted its own sport betting code of conduct to reassure the public that its members are and will always be reliable and responsible operators.
Operational Risk & Assurance
EL Members provide secure games in a controlled and safe environment. EL monitors operational risk such as IT risks or criminal activities and their threats to the gaming industry, prevention of risks associated with gaming and ensuring that EL Members are kept informed.
Macolin Convention enters into force
2019 saw the historic entry into force of the Council of Europe (CoE) Convention on the Manipulation of Sports Competitions (Macolin Convention). Since the conceptualisation and drafting phase of the Convention, the global lottery community – through EL, together with ULIS (formerly GLMS) and the World Lottery Association (WLA) – has fully supported the initiative and assisted the CoE in its effort to promote the Convention.
