The increase in sales of number games and cash lotteries was higher than the European average.

Totalizator Sportowy has proved that it has ceased to be only a national lottery operator, and has become a modern technology company that, due to changes in the law, could start operating in new areas of the gaming market – said Olgierd Cieślik, President of the Board of Totalizator Sportowy .

We have achieved the best result in our history due to constant progress, launching online sales, continuous development of the network of arcade gaming arcades and LOTTO sales points.

We are constantly working on making us one of the largest players on the gaming market in this part of Europe – added Olgierd Cieślik.

We would like to remind you that key changes in Totalizator Sportowy took place in 2017.

At that time, the company gained new opportunities, e.g. the right to launch the well-known international Eurojackpot game, the network of arcades with slot machines outside casinos, online casinos, as well as the opportunity to enter the sale of number games to the Internet.

These are the most important changes in the entire history of the company, which were used to introduce a number of innovations and the ongoing technological revolution.

These positive changes meant not only an increase in the revenues of Totalizator Sportowy, but also the protection of players, limiting the gray area in gambling and increasing revenues to the state budget.
