At the end of each year, the WLA publishes its Year in Review. The publication offers a brief yet comprehensive retrospective of the WLA’s endeavors and achievements of the past year. The Year in Review is a four-color, 16 to 24 page, A4 brochure containing all the relevant facts and figures on the previous year’s activities. It also offers a brief glance as to what the WLA has planned for the coming year. The Year in Review is distributed to all WLA members and is available in PDF format on the WLA website.
In 2022, the world lottery community continued the remarkable recovery first witnessed in 2021, with many countries beginning to turn a page on the global COVID-19 pandemic. The global lottery and sports betting industries eased into a new normal, embracing the changes wrought and the important lessons learned by events since 2020. This 'new normal' was a particular highlight of the World Lottery Summit (WLS) 2022, the jewel in the industry calendar and the first WLA biennial convention to be held in person since WLS 2018. The Year in Review reflects back on both WLS 2022 and the WLA's other accomplishments in the year past, and offers a glimpse into what the association has in store going forward in the near term.
