He reiterated Lottomatica’s commitment to supporting SKS365 in its next phase of growth, leveraging the collective strengths of the enlarged group.

“We add highly valuable and complementary brands to our portfolio,” Angelozzi said. “We will provide all the necessary support for the next phase of growth by leveraging the skills of the enlarged group.”

After a fiercely intense bidding process, Lottomatica defeated industry titan Playtech to acquire SKS365. Even though Playtech and SKS365 had preliminary discussions, Lottomatica’s bid was accepted, securing its place in the Italian gambling industry.

Playtech acknowledged that other companies, such as Flutter, were interested in its products, but it was unsure how its acquisition efforts would turn out. In the end, Lottomatica’s winning bid completed the acquisition, setting the business up for future development and expansion in the gaming sector.
