Czech national lottery operator Sazka has extended its contract with sportsbook supplier SBTech as it looks to build on “two years of substantial revenue gains” through the partnership.
SBTech has powered Sazka’s sportsbook since 2017, helping the national lottery achieve significant growth in the face of strong international competition through an enhanced product.
The new multi-year extension continues the relationship to drive further market share growth, the companies said.
“We are delighted to strengthen our relationship with one of Europe’s leading lottery groups,” said Andrew Cochrane, chief commercial officer at SBTech. “Sazka has achieved remarkable growth by embracing innovation, while also maintaining the highest standards of player safety and corporate and social responsibility.
“We have high expectations for the growth of the regulated Czech market and are committed to long-term shared success in this exciting territory.”
Robert Chvatal, chief executive of Sazka, commented: “SBTech’s complete sports betting solution has enabled us to expand rapidly over the past two years and we are very happy to extend our partnership. We anticipate continued and sustained growth moving forward and are preparing to leverage the full power of the SBTech sportsbook in the months and years to come.”
