Turkish sportsbetting monopoly Iddaa has chosen to take up a contract with Scientific Games and the Demiroren Group, causing Intralot to lose the lucrative deal that they've had in place.
The new contract is good for ten years, and will see two groups providing sportsbetting services within the country. The decision was made after the companies made the most attractive offer for lowest commission charge for the services. The Chairman of the Demiroren Group is Yildirim Demiroren, who resigned his position as chairman of the Turkish Football Federation after being granted the contract.
Speaking about the decision to leave his post, Demiroren said, "I have made this decision regarding the job I have carried out with pride and honour until today, to not leave any space for dispute and to cast a shadow over my tenure before the Turkish and world public."
No timetable for the integration of the new system was available as of press time.
