A number of companies such as Intralot, Greek online gambling company, Turkcell, the Turkish mobile phone operator, Turkish Dogan Yayin Holdings, Italian Lottomatica and Snai and Ladbrokes, British sports betting company, were making bids over a tender that took place in Turkey for a sport betting company called Iddaa.
On October 16, Intralot and Turkcell made their best bids via their joint venture “Inteltek”. Now, the Turkish authorities have to determine whether to grant Inteltek the rights to operate the sports betting company or not. The decision is to be taken within three days. But if the rights granted, they will operate the sports betting company for as long as 10 years.
