Vienna (pts019/26.09.2012/14:05) - Austrian Lotteries has won the Request for Applications for the Award of the National Lottery Licence of Albania
Austrian Lotteries was notified by the Albanian Ministry of Finance that it has won the race for the lottery license in Albania. The comprehensive application of Austrian Lotteries reveals a concept that allows for an innovative development of the market while safeguarding principles of paramount importance, namely sustainability, integrity, safety and security, as well as socio-political responsibility in terms of player protection and the protection of minors (Responsible Gaming), as well as the collective good.
efforts of Austrian Lotteries regarding the protection of minors have just recently been awarded with a prize: At the World Lottery Association summit in September 2012 in Canada, Austrian Lotteries received the award for the best "International Holiday Corporate Social Responsibility Campaign" for its campaign "Games of chance are not a child's play".
In its application, Austrian Lotteries was able to rely on more than 25 years of experience and its vast know-how in the domestic market, as well as integrate the knowledge gained in its successful international operations (e.g. Russia, Argentina, Hungary).
Austrian Lotteries is developing Lotto, scratch-off tickets and Keno, as well as further lottery games for the Albanian market and is planning to launch these products in spring 2013.
"We are pleased that our extensive application was able to convince the Albanian Ministry of Finance. We are confident that we will soon be able to responsibly offer the Albanian population exciting and entertaining games, which at the same time are secure and reliable" says Bettina Glatz-Kremsner, Member of Austrian Lotteries' Managing Board.
