Gaming technology organisation Playtech and GVC Holdings are targeting further igaming growth across the Spanish market after aligning for a live roulette expansion in the “key” jurisdiction.

Detailing the launch of three new live roulette tables, the first designed around Playtech Live’s green screen technology, availability will be across GVC’s PartyCasino, PartyPoker and Bwin brands, and will be hosted 24/7 by native Spanish-speaking dealers.

“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,” explained Shimon Akad, chief operating officer at Playtech.

“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 introduction of the three new tables comes hot on the heels of GVC’s launch of Quantum Ruleta Live in December 2019 – the first roulette game available in Spain to offer multiplier boosts in every game round.

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.”

Figures released in late 2019 by Spanish gambling regulator Dirección General de Ordenación del Juego show a 22.5 per cent YoY increase in gross gaming revenue from online gambling to €812m, the fourth consecutive year of annual growth in the territory.
