The group has agreed to purchase Sisal, one of Italy’s largest online gaming companies from CVC Capital Partners for a reported £1.6 Billion. This move is aimed at consolidating the group’s presence in the Italian market, which is forecast to be worth £3.6 Billion by 2024. 

Sisal currently supplies betting, casino, and amusement machines, with the company currently operating Italy’s SuperEnalotto lottery since 1997 and also holding a tender for the Moroccan National Lottery. The company is also in competition to run the UK National Lottery from 2023. 

Sisal’s web-based revenues have surged by an average 34 per cent over the last five years, and it forecasts generating revenues of £590 Million and underlying earnings of £211 Million this year.

Flutter Entertainment has maintained a powerful presence in the UK market, where it recently also acquired Tombola, one of the UK’s leading online bingo operators for £402 Million.
