Evolution announced Thursday that it has signed an agreement with Italy’s operator Sisal for the provision of online slots and jackpots from the Group’s NetEnt and Red Tiger brands. The deal builds on Sisal’s existing partnership with Evolution for the provision of Live Casino.
Sisal’s Evolution-powered Live Casino offering currently includes a full range of live dealer tables, localized tables with native speaking dealers, the dedicated "Sisal Blackjack Italia" branded table with native speaking Italian dealers, and access to Evolution’s First Person range of games.
The extended agreement will see a wide range of NetEnt and Red Tiger slots titles added to the line-up of online casino games, lottery products and sports betting opportunities available at Sisal's online platforms and retail sites, including "Starbust", "Gonzo's Quest", "Divine Fortune", "Twin Spin Megaways" from NetEnt, and "Gonzo's Quest Megaways", "Dragon Fire Megaways", "Piggy Riches Megaways" and "Dragon's Luck Deluxe" from Red Tiger.
In addition, Sisal will have access to Red Tiger’s Daily, Hourly and Super Drop Jackpots, Smart Spins bonusing software and Tournaments gamification functionality.
In an official press release, Marco Bedendo, Gaming Machines & Online Casino Managing Director at Sisal, said: “We have a strong relationship with Evolution, so it was natural to look to their Group brands to take our slots offering to the next level. Both NetEnt and Red Tiger are without doubt exceptional creative forces in the slots world – and both their portfolios offer not only a huge range of top-performing titles and established player favourites, but also a constant stream of innovative new titles.”
James Jones, Head of Business Development at Evolution, added: “As a company, Evolution has worked alongside Sisal for a number of years as their trusted partner for the delivery of world-class Live Casino solutions. We are now delighted to help Sisal develop their fantastic gaming and betting offering still further, not only through world-leading slots content but also through powerful slots tools that drive player engagement.”
Sisal currently operates in Italy, Morocco, Spain and Turkey, with a range that includes lotteries, betting, online games and entertainment devices. The company operates internationally in the retail channel through a network of over 53,000 points of sale and in the online channel serving over 1.8 million consumers.
In December, Flutter Entertainment announced the acquisition of Sisal from CVC Capital Partners Fund VI, for a consideration of approximately $2.1 billion (€1.913B/£1.62B). The transaction is likely to be completed during Q2, 2022.
