|EL President Friedrich Stickler: “Sport plays a significant role in our societies, and it is of utmost importance to preserve it from fraudulent behaviours. As betting operators, lotteries strongly welcome in particular the provisions to fight against illegal betting as well as the clear definition of this illegal activity. The Convention should enter into force as soon as possible: the dangers should not be minimalized and we have already lost enough time.”|
|“Linq3 is very excited to be recognized by retailers as the best new product of 2014. Retailers are the main avenue for lotteries to reach customers and Linq3 is proud to be a supporting partner in increasing sales for the retailer and lotteries all across the U.S.,” said Daniel Cage, Linq3’s CEO.|
