Lottery officials in El Salvador had something to celebrate in November 2023 as they were presented with a prestigious Law and Business Award. The award given to the National Charity Lottery recognized their work as a public institution. The official title is the Public Institution of the Year 2023 Award.
Recognition for El Salvador’s lottery agency
During a special ceremony for the 2023 Law and Business Awards on November 15, El Salvador’s National Charity Lottery — known as LNB — received one of the top honors of the event. They were recognized for their work as a public institution contributing in some significant ways to the public good.
Representatives from the organization were present for the ceremony in San Salvador, the capital city of the Central American country. These representatives spoke on behalf of LNB and accepted the award graciously, stating that the award is due to everyone who has worked individually for the organization over the years.
They went further in saying that it has been these individual employees and partners who have made the LNB’s work possible and helped them to expand their reach even further in El Salvador in 2023. They also described the institution as a family, within which these individuals are important members.
The representatives also spoke about the positive outlook their have for LNB in 2024. They anticipate even more success in the years to come. This was shown clearly by María del Carmen Molina, who accepted the award.
Molina is the general secretary of the LNB’s Workers Union, so she holds a unique role with the organization. Her honored part in the ceremony was in recognition of her work as not only an employee for the group but also as an organizer for the union, which helps keep the workers’ rights represented and upheld.
In her acceptance speech for the lottery, Molina agreed that being there was an honor and that she represents the hopes of the organization to continue to grow and be exceptional in the landscape of El Salvador’s gaming industry.
Molina also gave some insight about the changes that have happened in recent years and have in part contributed to this recognition now. She spoke to restructuring that has had a profound effect on the company and said that it is operating at a much more modernized level than ever before.
She also agreed that the LNB stands for both innovation and growth, via sustainable routes. Some of these innovations include the inclusion of both sports betting platforms and online casino platforms into the LNB’s repertoire.
This means that LNB is responsible not only for the country’s charity lottery, which is a popular pastime and a large contributor to economic funding for the state. It is also in charge of overseeing newer forms of gambling as they are introduced in El Salvador.
This constitutes a great responsibility, as well as major potential for improvements to El Salvador’s gaming infrastructure. LNB’s representatives appear excited about these new opportunities, but also highlight the importance of LOTRA and LOTÍN, two of the original lotto products the organization offers, which continue to be popular.
