Turkish Lottery Announces Earnings
By Staff
Turkey’s National Lottery Administration, which is due to be privatised early next year through a license handover overseen by the Government, has reported total earnings of $4.4 billion for the previous five years.

According to a report from the Anatolian Agency, the Milli Piyango National Lottery awarded $1.9 billion in prizes over this period while paying some $2.3 billion in tax.

These figures could see the number of firms interested in bidding for the right to operate the Lottery increase. The Privatization Administration Board of Turkey recently opened a tender to run the operation for up to ten years and all bids are due before February 27.

Companies or consortia interested must apply for pre-qualification by January 15 with those already known to be interested include GTech-Lottomatica, Essnet-Tattersall, Scientific Games, Camelot, OPAP, Intralot, Turkey's Koc Holding, Austrian Lotteries, Sisal, Dogus Group, Alarko and Cukurova Group.
