One of the key trends for the market will be introduction of new types of lottery. Lotteries are available in various forms, ranging from schemes for maximum monetary benefits to charitable funds.

The sports segment made huge profits in 2014. Once the ban is lifted, it is expected to introduce more innovative lottery options to attract buyers.
According to the report, revenue contribution in the form of tax is encouraged by the government which will be a key driver for market growth. The government of China encourages lottery sales to earn premium tax amounts from the player's painless revenue. The lottery market of the country has a huge consumer base, who buy the ticket for a minimal amount. This amount is a part of their disposable income after taxes. Lottery organizers collect this amount for the prize money to give to the winner and converts disposable income into taxable income, which is further used by the government for various social activities.
Further, the report states that one of the challenges for the market will be high tax imposed by the government.

The government increased the tax from 20% to 25% in its March 2014 budget. Also, the recent ban on online lottery resulted in the closing of many online lottery service providers. There are high chances that stringent tax regulations will be implemented by the government when they reopen the online lottery service for all the vendors. This will adversely affect the revenue during the forecast period and will also prevent new players from entering the market
