Greece’s national lottery OPAP to bid for Turkey’s national lottery Milli Piyango

(GREEK NEWS AGENDA)   Plans to bid for Turkey’s national lottery Milli Piyango are expected to come forward this month by Greece’s national lottery OPAP, Europe’s biggest betting firm. OPAP’s CEO Christos Hadjiemmanuil has announced that the firm has expressed interest to expand to Southeast Europe’s biggest market and the privatization of Turkey’s lottery constitutes a significant opportunity to be seized. The CEO does not exclude an eventual take over of the Turkish lottery, however, for the time being OPAP will bid in the tender together with carefully chosen local partners from the Turkish business world. In this joint venture, OPAP will hold 50% of the stake while the remaining will be shared by the other partners. The Greek company will be running the operational side of the company by providing its technical know-how. Kathimerini daily: OPAP set to bid for Turk lottery
