Sisal and Lottomatica sign Mondogoal for Fantasy Sports in Italy


[toc]Mondogoal announced a major extension of his daily fantastic sports B2B operations, after signing an agreement with Sisal and Lottomatica in Italy.

What Mondogoal does in Italy

A white label version of the Mondogoal DFS platform is now available on the Lottomatica and Sisal websites. The platform provides weekly cash prizes for the European Football Championships and offers head-to-head matches as well as multi-player tournaments.

Mondogoal is incorporated and licensed for its worldwide DFS operations on the Isle of Man, but also has licenses from the UK Gambling Commission and the Italian SMA. It has trade offices in the United States in Boston, Massachusetts.

CEO and founder of Mondogoal Shergul Arshad noted:

“The Italian daily fantasy market is growing rapidly and we are well positioned by partnering with the largest game providers in the country, some of the largest in the world. Getting big global companies like Sisal and Lottomatica to recognize the quality of the Mondogoal product and eagerly integrate it into their main platforms is a big step for Mondogoal, the daily fantasy and the global game.

Lottomatica and Sisal are globally

Lottomatica belongs to IGT, who also owns GTECH. The group is the world’s leading lottery provider and Lottomatica holds the license to operate the Italian State Lottery.

SISAL is the second largest gaming operator in Italy. It was just bought by UK venture capital firm CVC, which also owns Paris and sky games.

Marco tiso, Sisal Online Gaming Business Manager, said:

“With Lottomatica, we are building the first and largest DFS network in Italy. Sisal is pleased to enter into a strong partnership with Mondogoal, one of the world leaders in daily fantasy football. “

Commenting on the purchase, LSR noted that Sisal has not yet entered the virtual sports betting market. Now that he has a DFS product, virtual sports betting is the inevitable next step.

For Mondogoal, the deal is a huge blow

The attention of the United States is focused on the difficulties encountered by DFS companies regarding legality and regulation. The huge investments made in market leaders FanDuel and DraftKings may not generate the expected returns and there is an atmosphere of pessimism in the air.

The expansion of DFS in Italy, which is one of the largest gaming markets in the world, and where the population is particularly fanatic about football, is one of the best news the industry can receive.

Last year at the Global iGaming Summit and Exhibition (GiGse), Shergul Arshad did a convincing case for the explosive growth of DFS in Europe.

He said there was about 30 million fantastic players through Europe, half of which in the UK

“It’s smaller, but it’s a hell of a big deal,” Arshad told GiGse. “And, the way we think of it, it’s not fragmented between six or seven sports. It’s soccer, and soccer, and soccer and soccer.
