Taiwan is a diverse and open society, but Taiwan sports lottery has only been issued by one institution since it was opened for two sessions in 2008. Compared with European and American sports lotteries, which open multiple operators, consumers have a choice through market competition; On the other hand, the domestic sports administration has a conservative concept of sports lottery distribution. So far, the Taiwan sports lottery market is still dominated by a single issuer. In the absence of market competition, various problems have emerged one after another.
The system crashes, the fairness of the game is questioned, and players turn to underground betting. Social problems arising from illegal betting have long banner design been heard. The lottery is about to enter the next decade of the third session. Recently, there have been voices for the opening of a second issuer, and the authorities in charge of the lottery must not only face the pressure of coaching the continuous growth of the lottery, but also need to curb the growing problem of illegal betting. It is crucial for the policy direction to affect the next "Yun Lottery Decade".
Compared with the scale of foreign countries, Taiwan's sports lottery market economy is still very small (the market size only accounts for 0.6% of the world). Due to the limitation of the Taiwan government to open only one lottery operator, in such a single limited "rule of the game", only a small number of players can be attracted, and the market size is not large enough; the income of betting shops operated by disadvantaged groups or retired athletes is insufficient. In order to pay store rent and hire shop assistants; not to mention that due to the monopoly of one business, players are transferred to the illegal market. The government not only loses tax opportunities in vain, but also promotes the atmosphere of underground gambling. The huge profits lead to social problems such as fraud and violent debt collection.
