INTRALOT SA : INTRALOT ENTERS THE GERMAN SPORTS BETTING MARKET – 4

16/07/2012

THE GERMAN STATE LOTTERIES SELECT SGI INTRALOT

FOR RETAIL AND online sports betting

Following a competitive process, ‘ODS ODDSET Deutschland
Sportwetten GmbH’ (ODDSET) has awarded Scientific Games
International (SGI) in cooperation with INTRALOT with a
contract for the operation of sports betting in Germany
both in the retail and the interactive space. Under the
agreement with SGI, INTRALOT will provide the new
generation of its renowned INTRALOT Betting Platform, fully
supporting the retail and the interactive operational
modes, together with complete Risk Management Services and
Interactive Operational Services. ODDSET is the newly
established entity that will modernize and develop the
existing sports betting operations in Germany, through the
national retail network of the Deutsche Lotto und Toto
Block lotteries, which is comprised of 23,000 points of
sale.

Germany’s betting market is among Europe’s largest and is
currently undergoing regulatory reforms. As many as 15 of
the country’s 16 regions signed the Interstate Treaty at
the end of 2011 and most of these regions have already
ratified it in their local parliaments. The new Treaty is
in force since beginning of July 2012. Aiming to become the
leader of Germany’s betting market, ODDSET will apply for
one of the twenty upcoming national concessions to be
issued for the organization and brokerage of sports betting
for an initial period of seven (7) years.

Mr. Constantinos Antonopoulos, INTRALOT Group CEO, stated:
“We are very pleased to become part of this great opening
of the German market, one of the most important markets in
Europe and worldwide. SGI’s considerable experience and
knowledge of the local market together with INTRALOT’s
extensive know-how of sports betting operations and the
powerful market position of the German State Lotteries
create the synergy to address the challenges of the newly
regulated German market. Our common objective is to
establish through ODDSET a modern, attractive and
competitive product portfolio in the German market enabling
ODDSET to become the market leader in sports betting in the
Federal Republic of Germany over the medium term.”

The Parties have the common objective of supporting ODDSET
to launch first in Germany’s regulated sports betting
market, which is estimated to take place before the end of
2012.
