As it has been mentioned in the recent lottery news, Macau’s gambling regulator has been accused of introducing a lottery service to help the gambling industry to recover after the influence of the COVID-19 pandemic.
However, this news turned out to be fake. It is worth mentioning that the rumors about the Macau Mark Six lottery entering the market of the region have recently appeared from unknown sources. The regulator denied the possibility of the online lottery.
DICJ commented on the information about lottery
The DICJ, the Gaming Inspection and Coordination Bureau, has to take measures and explain the situation when the information about the lottery product has started to get passed around in the mass media. It has emphasized again that the gambling market in Macau isn’t focused on online services. The major reasons for this are that the online sector has more risks, and the region doesn’t have all the necessary regulations to control it properly.
At the current time, Macau’s regulator and the DICJ aren’t oriented towards this direction, as they are busy solving a big number of other industry-related problems and tasks. The bureau has posted an explanation on its website stating that any online lottery services operating in the territory of Macau are illegal.
