Abstract: At present, China lottery market is run by two departments. One is civil administration organs, which issue the welfare lottery; and the other is sport departments, which respond the sport lottery. The fact that up to the present there is no rule and law for lottery shows that its managements lag behind its practice. It is necessary to speed up the legislation for lottery and strengthen the government's supervision to market so as to ensure the proper rights and benefits of lotterymen and to keep the sustained development of China lottery.
