Who We Are Image

Our Businesses

At ZEAL, we believe there is a huge opportunity to tap into the $300-billion global lottery industry. With a global average of only 5% online penetration, the potential for growth in this area is massive. To take advantage of this growth opportunity, we have developed three key areas of business: Lottery Betting, Lottery Partnerships and Lottery Ventures. Together, these offer a variety of innovative and game-changing products.

"ZEAL’s financial strength and cash-generating business model, coupled with almost two decades of online lottery experience, puts it in a strong position to grow its international business."

LOTTERY PARTNERSHIPS

Lottovate aims to create a better world through lotteries that focus on good causes, communities and connecting people. A ZEAL company, Lottovate builds, sells and operates lottery games and social consumer products, and also offers Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) and professional services.

The Lottovate business unit includes Ventura24, a lottery broker in Spain that manages the digital sales channel for the disability charity ONCE, and Lotto Network, a digital fundraising platform.

LOTTERY VENTURES

ZEAL Investments supports start-up companies to develop disruptive new lottery business models, or to build new products that can be leveraged across existing lottery models.

ZEAL Investments was set up in 2016 to focus on finding the best entrepreneurial teams, as they gain traction in strategically interesting areas. The aim is to support these teams with growth capital and resources from the wider ZEAL Group. In return, ZEAL Investments expects to acquire, partner with, or learn from these companies, while gaining a financial return.

ZEAL Investments has acquired a 10% shareholding in The Free Postcode Lottery.
