Betting chain wants to expand

The state-owned football betting group Lotto wants to expand its operations to cover other events such as hockey, golf or the Olympic games spokesman Tjeerd Veenstra confirmed to news agency ANP on Friday.

Lotto hopes that by expanding its cover, it will be able to compete with illegal foreign online betting firms.
Currently Lotto is allowed to organise betting on football. Some 50,000 people take part every week.
