LeoVegas Casino has been granted a Spanish gaming license.
The popular online casino, which launched back in 2012 and has been praised for its wide selection of games and fun promotions, is set to expand its gambling operations by launching in Spain after being granted a license to operate both a casino and sportsbook in the country.
LeoVegas is expected to open its Spanish site soon, just months after announcing a multi-year partnership with England’s Premiership Rugby. The move is part of the firm’s expansion throughout Europe and Spain is just one of the countries LeoVegas is permitted to operate in, following from Malta, Denmark, Ireland, Sweden, the UK and Italy.
According to H2 Capital Gaming, the Spanish online gaming market is worth around €1 billion and, at the time of writing, only 13% of all gaming in the country is online.
What They Say
Gustaf Hagman, the CEO of LeoVegas, said in a statement: “We welcome Spain as our 7th locally regulated market. With LeoVegas’ position as ‘King of Casino’, we are now entering Spain with the ambition to take the mobile position and offer the ultimate gaming experience.
“The Spanish online gambling market have a strong underlying growth with over 20 per cent per year. The Spanish license is an important step in our continued expansion, in other Spanish-speaking countries, where we have already conducted test launches in Peru and Chile.”
LeoVegas has yet to reveal when their Spanish website will be launching but it’s expected to come within the following months, so keep checking back!
