The Spanish online gaming market has enjoyed strong growth in recent years, particularly since it added slots to its offering in 2015. According to regulator Dirección General de Ordenación del Juego, online gaming revenues were up 37 per cent year-on-year for Q3 2017, to €140.5m.
Yggdrasil CEO Fredrik Elmqvist said: “Spain has quickly emerged as one of Europe’s fastest growing and exciting jurisdictions, making it a perfect environment for Yggdrasil’s award-winning slots and promotional tools.”
“Entering Spain with GVC, a long-time partner across multiple jurisdictions, will ensure our games are enjoyed by slots fans across the country. Following recent entries into Denmark and Italy, it also underlines our commitment to expanding our footprint in Europe’s regulated markets,” Elmqvist added.
Andy Whitworth, GVC’s head of content and comercial, commented: “Our aim is to offer content from our best suppliers in all of our markets. Yggdrasil’s slots have already proved to be hugely popular with our players elsewhere, so we are delighted to be the first operator to bring that award-winning content to Spain.”
