NASHVILLE—The World Lottery Association (WLA) has awarded the Tennessee Education Lottery Corporation its highest level of recognition for the Lottery’s responsible gaming initiatives. This Level 4 Responsible Gaming Certification is bestowed upon lotteries that “integrate specific responsible gaming programs into their day-to-day operations and decision-making” and demonstrate continuous improvement in these areas.
Only five other U.S. lotteries have earned this prestigious honor.
“We are proud of this accomplishment and the recognition of our ongoing commitment to responsible gaming,” said Rebecca Hargrove, President and CEO of the Tennessee Education Lottery Corporation. “We work hard to incorporate a framework of responsible play in all of our operations, from game design and marketing to player education and treatment referral.”
The Lottery also earned the WLA’s “Flagship Responsible Gaming Award” recently for “showcasing best practices and innovation” in designing its games.
The WLA is a member-based organization of over 140 state lottery and gaming organizations from more than 80 countries on six continents. Its mission is to advance the interests of state-authorized lotteries through a variety of programs that foster relationships and establish best practices for lotteries across the globe.
