Sisal Italia, a subsidiary of Flutter Entertainment, has added yet another feather to its cap, scoring a prized international license. This time, the company has been bestowed with an exclusive sportsbook license for Morocco, valid for the next eight years.
Sisal, however, did not win the lucrative contract without a fight, having gone up against several other candidates. After the gruelling tender process, La Marocaine des Jeux et des Sports (MDJS) finally settled on Sisal as the most deserving candidate. Should the company deliver an impressive performance, the license may be extended for two more years.
Exclusive Operator Contract Details
The partnership with MDJS gives Sisal full autonomy over sports betting in Morocco. The operator now controls online and retail betting in the region, with Sisal Jeux Maroc, the company’s local holding, responsible for all operations.
Speaking on behalf of the organization, Marco Caccavale expressed his elation at winning the bid, stating that MDJS recognized Sisal’s ability to get the job done. He added that the Moroccan gambling market is ripe with potential.
Sisal on a Roll
The Morocco contract is undoubtedly a significant win for Sisal, but really, it’s just the tip of the iceberg. The operator recently secured four similar international licenses. The most notable recent license was finalized in Tunisia. Sisal now handles the region’s sports betting, online gambling, and instant lotteries. The company has also secured licenses for Spain and Turkey, with Sisal International Group, SuperEnalotto, and MatchPoint all joining the Flutter family.
Some other international licenses Sisal secured are for Spain and Turkey. The expansion saw Sisal International Group, SuperEnalotto, and MatchPoint become part of Flutter.
Caccavale made an additional statement. He confirmed that the Morocco contract brings Sisal’s international license count to four. He added that being under the Flutter corporate umbrella has strengthened his company. In conclusion, he looks forward to exploring the lucrative African market and offering a premium betting experience to all.
