Tipos debt swells to Sk2.3 billion

According to the contract that the state lottery company Tipos signed with Športka, which recently won a lawsuit accusing Tipos of stealing its know-how, the amount of damages that the state – which is the majority shareholder in Tipos – must pay has already increased from Sk1.9 billion to Sk2.3 billion.
