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 48,000 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 14 million Italian consumers over more than sixty 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.

Sisal today is a major Italian group operating in the Gaming and Payment Services sector and in 2015:

  • reported a turnover of about €17.9bn, over 1,800 employees and a network of more than 48,000 points of sale
  • imanages a broad offering of on- and offline games: lotteries, betting, casino games and gaming machines
  • offers the public in excess of 500 payment services, through its network of retailers and over 80 partners
