It is headed by the Korea Sports Promotion Foundation and is regulated by the Ministry of Sports, Culture and Tourism.


The popularity of sanctioned sports betting has grown geometrically since its origin in 1997. With the growth and parallel strains on IT, Sportstoto quickly realized the limitations of its on-disk DBMS. New subscribers demanded greater functionality and a more robust selection of gaming choices.

  • The overloaded, inflexible DBMS disallowed Sportstoto’s personnel to manage or maintain the system efficiently.
  •  Sportstoto was plagued with service interruptions, leaving users frustrated and in the dark.
  •  The planned release of significantly more sophisticated games with greater than 400% increases in transaction load met grave uncertainty.[1]


Sportstoto has deployed Altibase since 2007. Altibase’s built-in HA, replication and hybrid capability has allowed Sportstoto to provide uninterrupted gaming services. Sportstoto has realized lower TCO and the ability to scale its operations.

  • Issuing betting tickets: 5.75 times faster
  • Sportstoto has reduced its spending significantly by storing and utilizing 2 TB of historical gaming data on-disk with Altibase’s hybrid feature.
  • By eliminating the need to utilize a supplemental on-disk DBMS to support its historical data, Sportstoto was able to increase its resource efficiency by 54%, marking a reduction in application processes from 200 to 130.
  • Sportstoto’s objectives and efficacy remain well-positioned and without impediment.
