The deal, valued at €639 million, is slated for completion in the first half of 2024, pending customary competition and regulatory approvals.

I am thankful to continue to lead the SKS365 team and I am looking forward to working closely with Guglielmo Angelozzi and our new colleagues at Lottomatica."

This acquisition will not only enable SKS365 to fortify its market presence but also open doors to new opportunities and synergies. It marks a pivotal moment for both companies, reflecting the dynamic evolution within the iGaming industry.
