“Fantasy sports is growing really fast in the Europe and Sportito aims to be the number one platform with the best experience ever,” a pleased Riccardo Mittiga CEO of Sportito commented.

Speaking to industry media, Mittiga details that the MGA approval is a major milestone for  Sportito operations, adding that his firm has now gained the potential to reach approximately 40 million European players, as Sportito studies further markets for expansion.

“We are happy to expand our business into new markets in Europe for the fantasy players with various preferences of tournaments and sports,” Mittiga added. “We are a customer oriented company and our team is doing our best to become the first choice in the hearts of the fantasy players.”
