About us

About us

Founded in 1945 as the realisation of the dream and ingenuity of three sports journalists, Sisal was the first Italian company to operate in the gambling and betting industry under a government licence.

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

The success of Sisal’s creative force is the basis of our financial results and reputation, building a company that has earned the trust and credibility of its over 29 million consumers over seventy-five years in business. We develop and manage games with expertise and high standards of integrity, transparency and security: all essential characteristics for companies operating in a highly regulated sector subject to strict state controls.

In particular, Sisal operates in the regulated gambling sector, managing a wide range of online and offline games: lotteries, betting, casino games and amusement machines. Sisal employs more than 2.300 people and operates a network comprising almost 48,000 retail outlets.

Today, Sisal's story also leads it to achievements abroad: through a detailed internationalisation strategy, 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.

Sisal is part of Flutter Entertainment plc, the world’s largest online sports betting and gaming operator with a portfolio of globally recognized brands and a constituent of the FTSE 100 index of the London Stock Exchange.
