The British Columbia Lottery Corporation (BCLC) has been accepted as a new member of United Lotteries for Integrity in Sports (ULIS), the organization formerly known as the Global Lottery Monitoring System (GLMS).

ULIS works closely with sport’s governing bodies, law enforcement agencies, public authorities and other stakeholders to combat sports competitions manipulations around the world.

Its corporate identity was rebranded last October ‘to communicate better what the association is and stands for’ and to ‘reflect the significant transformation taking place in its activities which is linked to a new positioning and strategy that has evolved from initial monitoring to a complete global ecosystem of services offered’.

Commenting on BCLC’s admittance into the organization, ULIS President Ludovico Calvi said: “ULIS is delighted to welcome BCLC as a member.

“BCLC’s commitment to ESG, responsible gambling and community outreach aligns with our values, and we look forward to working with BCLC to promote a culture of integrity in sports.”

BCLC gained the approval of the ULIS Executive Committee on Mar. 17, and is now the third lottery in Canada to become a regular member of the organization, joining Loto-Québec and the Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation (OLG).

Meanwhile, BCLC recently extended its deal with MGM Resorts to utilize GameSense, a player health program that offers players access to tools and resources that support healthy play.
