Corporación Galena, an affiliate of Managed Gaming Solutions, was granted a 20-year mobile lotto license for Peru, Managed Gaming Solutions announced on Wednesday.

According to the company, the new license explicitly defines mobile lotto to be based on text messaging, which will enable Peruvian players to play mobile lottery directly from their handsets without having to buy tickets from retailers.

“The lottery phenomenon in Peru is growing rapidly,” said Tero Turunen, the company’s chairman, in a prepared statement. “Here, gambling has a strong tradition and more than nine million mobile users out of a total population of 28.7 million people bring us perfect opportunity for further success.”
