The European Lotto Betting Association (eLBA) has named Gameworx CEO Ed Mouton as its new chairman, with Lottoland’s Elicia Bravo re-elected as vice chair.

Mouton takes the reins at eLBA just four months after the Malta-based jackpot games provider joined the lottery betting association. He replaces myLotto24’s Elisa Field.

“It’s great to be elected to run eLBA at such an exciting time for the lotto betting sector, which is growing fast by creating new opportunities for European citizens to bet on the results of state lotteries,” said Mouton. “I look forward to working with the other members to promote better understanding of lotto betting, which provides a sustainable, socially responsible, online complement to state lotteries.”

Mouton acknowledged the good work of Bravo and outgoing chair Elisa Field, who actively led eLBA’s efforts to share information with regulators and promote informed and evidence-based regulation of lotto betting across Europe in the first year of the association’s existence.

Following her re-election as vice chair, Bravo commented: “It is great to look back at what we have achieved in the past year and I am excited to work with Ed and the rest of the members towards the development of a sensible and effective regulatory regime for our industry.”

The eLBA is currently formed of six members, including Lottoland, Gameworx, Multilotto, Legacy 8 Gaming, Lottogo and myLotto24
