NeoGames secures iLottery deal with Czech’s Sazka

8 February 2016

NeoGames has agreed a deal with Czech Republic lottery operator Sazka to begin offering iLottery and online gaming services to consumers in the country.

Under the strategic partnerhsip, NeoGames will provide Sazka with iLottery 360, a solution based on its NeoSphere unified and integrated player management platform.

The solution will enable players in the Czech Republic to access a range of games from the NeoGames portfolio as well as third-party providers.

Following the initial implementation of the solution, Sazka will introduce sports betting and lottery game verticals as well as other products, as regulations in the country evolve to enable the operator to do so.

“We selected NeoGames for their superior platform, unsurpassed variety of games focused on lottery players, flexibility and can-do attitude,” Sazka chief executive Robert Chvátal said.

“Their extensive experience in running online operations in regulated markets across the EU positions us to maximise our business potential in the Czech Republic.”

Ilan Rosen, chief executive of NeoGames, added: “Sazka has been the fastest growing lottery in recent years in Europe and we look forward to supporting their growth in the online space.”

The agreement comes after Sazka last week also entered into a partnership with SBTech regarding the supply of a full turnkey sports betting solution.
