The management contract will come into force from 1 January 2023, running for eight years, with an option to extend for a further two years. 

The new provider would replace Intralot, which has powered MDJS’ lottery, betting and gaming offerings since 2010. In March last year the Greek gaming giant announced that it had agreed to reduce the term of an eight-year agreement, signed in June 2019, to end on 31 December, 2022.

MDJS has divided the two request proposal into two lots.#

The first covers fixed-odds sports and pari-mutuel betting, including wagering on virtual events, with betting on horse and greyhound racing carved out. Lot two covers lotteries, instant sports lotteries including electronic instant games and raffles. 

Bidders may submit a proposal for one or both lots, by paying a MAD10,000 (£797/€955/$1,079) fee for the bidding documents, with proposals to be submitted no later than 10am on 4 April. Bidders will also be required to submit a MAD3m security deposit alongside their proposal.
