On 5th of September 2019, Scientific Games announced the successful launch of its cutting-edge sports betting program in Turkey. This was a venture that was destined to flourish, notably since Turkey ranks amongst the largest state-sponsored sports markets for fixed-odds betting.
Earlier on, Scientific Games Company had also announced that it had been chosen to offer its top-notch technology and products for the Turkish National Lottery. Turkey, as a nation, has a population of more than 80 million, and the main target for this collaboration was to boost sales and profits returned for the state.
Right now, Scientific Games’ inclusive turnkey sports gambling solution is already live across a selection of proprietary retail sports operations. The solution is also live across the various companies licensed to offer interactive sports betting. The firm’s central gaming systems technology runs across approximately 5,000 WAVE™ retail gambling terminals plus 6 online gambling sites authorized to provide interactive sports betting.
The digital and retail platforms for sports betting are entirely traded by Scientific Games via itsexclusiveOpenSports™ trading platform. The joint venture, referred to as Şans Girişim, took off in March after Scientific Games was awarded a decade long sports betting IDDAA contract in Turkey.
Accompanied by Scientific Games, the principal partner in the joint venture is Şans Dijital, an associate of Demirören Holding. Demirören Holding stands as one of the dominant firms in the state, with significant business interests in media, energy, and real estate. Turkish sports lovers are in for a treat thanks to the success of this brand-new revolutionary product.
