.A class-action lawsuit that was recently certified in the Supreme Court of Newfoundland and Labrador relies on outdated and irrelevant law, the Atlantic Lottery Corporation claimed in a news release Thursday. “The 1710 English Gaming Act is from a different age. It has nothing to do with lotteries, particularly video lottery, and does not form any part of the law of Newfoundland and Labrador,” wrote the ALC. The corporation insisted that VLT games were regulated, were decided solely on chance, and had integrity.
