This morning we met with government advisors, where topics and issues that are deeply concerning to our members and the Newsagency and Lottery Industry, such as Lottoland, Tatts Gift Cards and the proposed National Sports Lottery were discussed.
It is pleasing to note that the government is well aware of predatory fake lottery / wagering organisations and continues to monitor this space with great interest.
We also expressed our desire for any lottery Gift Card initiative to be considered for our channel and we were encouraged by the desire of the government to explore elements of this.
As we further our deliberations with government and fight for the relevance of our channel, we will continually seek positive initiatives that provide mutually beneficial outcomes for community and business.
While this is one of the most challenging times for our industry, VANA / Nlottery is determined to represent the best interest of our members and the wider industry. We will continue to collaborate with our industry partners and lobby government for the benefit of all.
Please look out for more updates over the next 4-8 weeks.
If you have any enquiries, please contact me on 0448 703 575 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
