Spain – Playtech and GVC expand Live Roulette offering in SpainBy Phil - 3 March 2020
Playtech has launched three new Live Roulette tables with industry giant GVC in the key growth market of Spain.
The new tables, the first Roulette tables designed around Playtech Live’s unique green screen technology, will be available via GVC’s PartyCasino, PartyPoker and Bwin brands, and will be hosted 24/7 by native Spanish-speaking dealers.
The introduction of the three new tables comes hot on the heels of GVC’s market-first launch of Quantum Ruleta Live in December 2019 – the first Roulette game available in Spain to offer exciting multiplier boosts in every game round, plus unique Quantum Boost and Quantum Leap special events.
Figures released in late 2019 by Spanish gambling regulator Dirección General de Ordenación del Juego (DGOJ) show a 22.5 per cent year-on-year increase in gross gaming revenue (GGR) from online gambling to €812.0m, the fourth consecutive year of annual growth in the territory. With Ficom Leisure predicting the market will be worth at least €1bn annually by 2023, with potential to reach as much as €1.5bn, Spain represents a combination unique in European online gambling markets of established success and sustained, long-term growth.
Shimon Akad, Chief Operating Officer at Playtech, said: “Central to our partnership model with licensees is our commitment to deliver innovative and engaging products with industry leading and reliable technology. I am pleased to see our operators trust us to always be there for them. With Spain a highly attractive market presenting many ongoing opportunities, we are delighted to be able to support our partners on delivering growth and leading on innovation across the region. GVC is a key international partner for us, so the expansion of what is already a ground-breaking live offering is a fantastic sign of things to come.”
Colin Cole-Johnson, Gaming Product Director at GVC added: “Delivering a varied, engaging experience for our players is central to our mission across all markets, so being able to expand our Live offering in a key growth territory is a great step forward. The innovative technology behind the new tables allows us to deliver a distinct feel across three individual brands, and with the support of highly trained native-speaking dealers, we believe we can offer our Spanish players something truly special.”
