New lottery rules published in China

In an effort to crack down on the unauthorized sale of lottery tickets, authorities in mainland China have reportedly published updated rules designed to further clarify how players may legally enjoy games for the nation’s China Sports Lottery and China Welfare Lottery.

According to a Tuesday report from GGRAsia, the new set of regulations from China’s Finance Ministry were unveiled on Monday after being endorsed by the Civil Affairs Ministry as well as the giant nation’s State General Administration of Sport and are set to become effective from the first day of October.
