About us

Founded on the dream and insight of three sports journalists in 1946, Sisal was the first Italian company to operate in the gaming and betting industry as a government licensee. Over 39,000 retail points spread across Italy.

The story of Sisal is first and foremost a story of Italian enterprise at its finest. Over the years, Sisal has created a succession of popular, high-quality games, including the l Totocalcio, the Totip and, more recently, SuperEnalotto and Win for Life.

The success of Sisal’s ideas underpins the financial results and reputation of a company that has built a relationship of  trust and credibility with over 6.8 million Italian consumers over more than seventy years in business, developing and managing games with expertise and high standards of integrity, transparency and security: all essential characteristics for companies operating in a heavily regulated sector subject to strict state controls.

In particular, Sisal operates in the regulated gaming sector, managing a wide range of on and offline games: lotteries, betting, casino games and ADI. Sisal reports 8.8 billion euros in the gaming sector, has more than 1,740 employees and operates a network of more than 39,000 points of sale.

Today Sisal is also a leading player abroad: through a careful strategy of internationalization, the company has successfully managed to develop new business opportunities and consolidate its leadership in new markets. In particular, in addition to the Italian market, Sisal also operates in Morocco, Spain and Turkey.

The importance of relations

Sisal is a company born of the determination shown by three journalists to re-establish a common purpose and strengthen a country destroyed by the war. Against this backdrop, it was decided to leverage business relations for mutual enrichment, support and growth.
