From the editor- Lottoland operates legally in Gibraltar and Malta but illegally in many jurisdictions throughout Europe. Their business model is to take bets on the outcome of branded lottery games like EuroMillions, EuroJackpot, Powerball, MegaMillions, and many of the national lottery games as well. They use the brand logos, or slightly modified versions of the logos for these popular games, so the consumer typically thinks they are buying the lottery ticket from a legitimate licensed seller. Lottoland keeps the revenues and the profits for the benefit of its own shareholders, neither buying the ticket from, nor sharing the profit with the Lottery. You would think there is basis for legal recourse to shut this business model down. Instead, it has been growing and diverting more and more revenues from the Lottery. This Lottoland business model effectively redistributes money away from the Good Causes supported by Lottery over to the private accounts of the shareholders of Lottoland. It is hard to understand why governments want to do that.
