Platform provider SkillOnNet has announced it’s to enter the Spanish market for the first time, after the country’s regulator, the Dirección General de Ordenación del Juego, awarded the firm a licence.

As a result of the move, players in spain are to soon gain access to a variety of online casino brands, such as SkillOnNet’s flagship PlayOJO, alongside SlotsMagic, PlayMillion, AhtiGames, Cozino and more.

This forms part of the company’s plans to enter regulated and regulating markets across Europe for its proprietary and white-label online casino brands, offering a plethora of casino games and localised payment options.

The casino platform provider and operator targeted and prioritised launch in the Spanish market, due to the “incredible growth the country’s online casino sector has enjoyed in recent months” 

Michael Golembo, sales and marketing director at SkillOnNet, said: “This is a milestone moment for SkillOnNet and is the next big step in our continued expansion into regulated casino markets across Europe. 

“We saw how impressively the market had grown over the past 12 months, and decided to prioritise obtaining a licence from the DGOJ and launching in the country. 

“We also see Spain as a gateway to Spanish-speaking Latin American markets in the future. 

“The licence means that we can now make our own casino brands available to Spanish players, as well as those of our current and future white-label partners. 

“We plan to be a leading player in the Spanish casino market as we have done in all markets we have entered before.”

SkillOnNet already holds licences in the UK, Malta, Denmark and Sweden, and last month had its Germany licence renewed by the Schleswig Holstein regulator. 

Lauded as a “major milestone,” the reissue of the online casino licence by the northernmost of Germany’s 16 state extends the firm’s stay in the country until 2021, with a high-profile advertising campaign set to follow.
