Reading Time: 1 minute

 

Playtech Plc has launched the path-breaking TotalCasino (TotalCasino.pl), the first ever regulated online casino in Poland. The move is in partnership with the Polish state-owned national lottery operator Totalizator Sportowy.

Earlier this year, Totalizator Sportowy chose Playtech as its lead digital systems provider in its bid to expand further.

Totalizator Sportowy currently has over 17,000 points of sale across the country, built over six decades. The proceeds from its business are used as social funds for the construction and renovation of sports facilities.

The Polish lottery chose Playtech for the purpose because of the latter’s a proven track record of delivering broader offerings for World Lottery Association members including Greece’s OPAP, Portugal’s Santa Kaza and Sisal Italy.

Backing the launch of TotalCasino.pl Mor Weizer, Chief Executive Officer of Playtech, said: “This is a significant day for Totalizator Sportowy and for Playtech. A lot of hard work has gone into the last nine months to build an exciting, robust, safe platform for Poland’s players. We owe a big thank you to our new partners at Totalizator Sportowy and look forward to a long, successful relationship.”

“Our commitment to innovative, industry-leading products and the scale and flexibility of our gaming platform means Playtech is the clear partner of choice for the leading land-based operators in newly regulating online markets.”

The INTRALOT Group announces that it has reached an agreement with Merkur Sportwetten GmbH, a subsidiary of the Gauselmann Group based in Espelkamp, Germany to take over the renowned sports betting company Totolotek SA – a fully owned INTRALOT subsidiary in Poland. The share purchase agreement has already been concluded and both parties are now awaiting merger clearance. With this acquisition, the German company will enter the Polish market and thus expand its presence in Europe. Soon Polish sports betting fans will be able to place their bets under the sign of the well-known MERKUR sun: Merkur Sportwetten GmbH.

Totolotek has been firmly established in the Polish sports betting market for over 27 years and is one of the top three omnichannel betting companies in Poland. It markets its wide range of sports betting products through stationary trade at over 260 distribution points as well as online via its website and mobile app. Totolotek currently has 560 employees.

“We are delighted to have gained a strong strategic partner with Merkur Sportwetten, and the Gauselmann Group behind it. With its experience and financial strength as well as its innovative products for stationary trade and the online and mobile sector, it will help Totolotek achieve further growth,” says Adam Lamentowicz, CEO of Totolotek.

“Consistent with INTRALOT’s strategy of disinvesting from its non-core markets and focusing on the group’s strategic markets, such as the USA, we are very glad we can safeguard Totolotek’s continued growth within the strong Gauselmann Group and its European-market-focused sports-betting division Merkur Sportwetten. In my view, this transaction will create value for all involved parties – Gauselmann, Totolotek and INTRALOT – which was fundamentally important from INTRALOT’s point of view when deciding to proceed with this transaction,” explains Andreas Chryssos, CFO of INTRALOT Group, summing up the acquisition of Totolotek by Merkur Sportwetten.

“Sports betting is extremely popular in Poland and for many football fans it’s an essential part of a good match. The acquisition of Totolotek is an important part of our growth strategy to open up the Polish market and thereby gain another core market in Europe alongside Germany, Austria, Denmark and Belgium,” explains Niko Steinkrauß, CEO of Merkur Sportwetten.
