The UAE Has The Chance To Build The Most Exciting Lottery In The World Says Gaming Expert

This week, it was announced that the UAE has established a gaming and lottery regulatory authority, which should pave the way for legalized gaming in the UAE.

The newly established General Commercial Gaming Regulatory Authority (GCGRA) is led by Kevin Mullally who announced his appointment on LinkedIn this week. Bringing 37 years of diversified law experience to the table, Mullally has worked between international regulatory agencies, legislators, law enforcement, and organizations devoted to developing gaming policy. His aim as head of the GCGRA is to create a socially responsible and well-regulated gaming environment in the UAE.

The news has been reported internationally with all eyes firmly on what the news means for the UAE, where all forms of gambling are currently prohibited. Will Dubai be the Las Vegas of the Middle East? Are we paving the way for casinos? If, how, and where gaming will be introduced will be defined by the team of experts, however, the founder of a European Lottery draw, Lottoland, says lotteries are a softer from of gambling and hopes to be able to offer his services to the UAE in the near future.
