Playtech and GVC Holdings, a gaming technology company, plan to further iGaming development across the Spanish market after aligning with the “primary” jurisdiction for live roulette expansion.
There will be a launch of three new live roulette tables, the first built around Playtech Live’s green screen technology, will be available across GVC’s PartyCasino, PartyPoker and Bwin brands, and will be operated by native Spanish-speaking dealers on a 24/7 basis.
Shimon Akad, chief operating officer at Playtech explained: “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.”
The release of the three new tables comes hot on the heels of GVC’s December 2019 launch of Quantum Ruleta Live – the first roulette game released in Spain to give multiplier boosts in every round of playing.
Colin Cole-Johnson, director of gaming products 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.”
Figures released by the Spanish gambling regulator Dirección General de Ordenación del Juego at the end of 2019 show a 22.5 percent increase in gross gaming revenue from online gambling to € 812 million, the fourth year in a row of annual growth in the area.
