At the time of writing the 2019 Annual Report, the world faced the pandemic spread of Covid-19.

The consequences, as well as the never before seen measures to deal with this situation, were felt by lotteries, and no doubt case a shadow over the 2020 developments in the sector.

2019 saw the 10th EL Congress and Trade Show in Antwerp, hosted by the Nationale Loterij/Loterie Nationale of Belgium, bringing together over 800 attendees. United in their core values, the Congress paid homage to that one element that is at the core base of the lottery sector; chance, and more specifically, the ‘‘Success of Chance’’.
