Totalizator Sportowy in e-sport? The industry has something to enjoy!
Totalizator Sportowy, the owner of the LOTTO brand, has been the greatest patron of Polish sport for many years. The company supports its development on several levels, among others by transferring funds from subsidies of number games and cash lotteries. Since 1994 it was over PLN 12 billion!
The company, also through its own funds, supports selected organizations, clubs and sports events - Ekstraklasa, Polish Basketball League, Tour de Pologne or sponsorship of the Polish Olympic Team, which has been going on for 25 years - these are just a few of the many initiatives of Totalizator Sportowy.
Investing in e-sport is like hitting the “six”
After many years of support for the development of Polish sport by Totalizator Sportowy, it’s time for e-sport. The announcement in February by the owner of the LOTTO brand of entry into the electronic sports industry can be treated as the beginning of a breakthrough period for virtual entertainment lovers. The decision to engage in e-sport is the result of changes that the company is currently undergoing.
The development of the company motivates broadly understood digitalization, which we can observe recently through the possibility of playing online in the most popular LOTTO games on the Polish market and the launch of the first legitimate online casino by the company. Already in February, we had the opportunity to observe the first investments of Totalizator Sportowy in the field of electronic sports. At that time, the LOTTO brand became a partner of all transmissions from tournaments organized by ESL: ESL One, ESL Pro League and the March Intel Extreme Masters 2019.
