Sisal S.p.A. and Sisal Entertainment S.p.A. group companies have been instrumental in the process of legalising gaming and betting in Italy, by bidding in a series of tenders since 2000 that have gradually regulated various types of game:
- National lottery games.
- Horse race and sport betting (both totalizer and fixed odds).
- Entertainment devices more commonly known as slot machines and video lottery terminals.
- Remote gaming.
In managing these products, the group draws on an extensive network distributed evenly across all Italy, with a strong visual identity and trained staff.
As well as over 48,000 gaming points, many operating under the Sisal Point brand, the Sisal network today also embraces over 400 betting agencies operating under the Sisal Match Point and Wincity brands.
As established by current legislation, Sisal distributes and manages products regulated by the lottery game concession across its network, while betting and amusement machines are available in a portion of the company’s general purpose sales network (e.g. cafes, tobacconists, etc.), in betting agencies, in amusement arcades and in bingo halls.
In the online gaming area too, Sisal is committed to the integration of its physical network, offering account top-up and winnings collection services at retail points to over 300,000 players, using an integrated and sustainable multichannel approach.
