Lottotech has been awarded the Responsible Gaming Level 4 certification by the World Lottery Association. This internationally recognized accreditation ensures that we fully integrate responsible gaming in our operations.
We have developed and implemented our responsible gaming program over the years in order to create an environment where we provide safe and regulated games. Our decision to work towards the highest level of this certification demonstrates the commitment to protect the players, raise awareness around responsible play, display high level of integrity and have world class business practices in place.
To become Level 4 certified, Lottotech underwent an independent audit process performed by KPMG, another renowned institution. Their evaluation report was submitted to the WLA panel composed of international social responsibility experts. We had a very successful submission as no exception were identified. The responsible gaming certification is the assurance that Lottotech has a well-defined RG program in place. It is worth mentioning that we are the second country in the African region and we are among the 67 operators around the globe to have such recognition. This places our island on the international platform which reaffirms that Mauritius’ operators can also implement international gambling standards.
As there is no specialized institution treating of gambling addiction in Mauritius, in August 2019, Lottotech has signed a Memorandum of Understanding with four NGOs namely Etoile d’Espérance, Chrysalide, Centre d’accueil de Terre Rouge and Centre de Solidarité pour une nouvelle vie with the aim to create a listening and counselling platform for people suffering from issues with gambling.
