Spielo International is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Lottomatica and was formed by the integration of former sister companies Atronic and Spielo last year. A Canadian company, Spielo was established in 1990 and quickly established itself among the world leaders in the design, manufacture and distribution of high performance video lottery terminals, games, systems and other services. Atronic, meanwhile, was founded in Austria in 1993 and became a leading provider of casino games and products, including linked gaming solutions.
In 2003, it acquired MIS in Monaco and GRIPS in Austria, combining them into Atronic Systems – the largest systems provider based in Europe. GTECH acquired Spielo in 2004 before completing its acquisition of Atronic in 2008. GTECH was itself acquired by Lottomatica in 2006 and so in 2009 Spielo and Atronic became its direct subsidiaries.
As a combined entity, Spielo International now has a dedicated workforce of approximately 1,200 employees in 17 countries and has manufacturing operations in Moncton, Canada, and a major office in Graz, Austria, along with offices in the US, Peru, Germany, Monaco, Italy and Poland.
