Irish minister voices support to online lotteryReading Time: 1 minute


Ireland’s Minister for Finance Paschal Donohoe has extended his firm support to online lottery. He virtually dismissed the opposition towards online lottery.

“There’s no evidence of a significant impact on the national lottery arising from online lottery betting at present,” Donohoe said after a Parliamentary question. He also explained that contributions from the national lottery to good causes have “not yet been materially affected by other developments” such as electronic or online versions of the lottery.

“As we have said for some time, the evidence clearly shows that lottery betting does not impact the national lottery; we are pleased the Minister has recognised this,” said Elisa Field, chairperson of the European Lotto Betting Association (eLBA).

The eLBA, comprising members such as myLotto24, Lottoland, Multilotto and Lottogo, supports lottery betting operators.
