Partnership enables 888 to claim first-to-Spanish-market in the live sector
Online gambling group 888 has partnered with live dealer provider Evolution to become the first company to launch live dealer casino action in the Spanish market on the 888casino.es website.
The product, which is streamed from a land-based casino in Spain, is fully integrated into 888′s proprietary gaming platform and back office, and will be offered to Spanish players alongside 888′s popular online casino and poker games.

“We are delighted to be the first online operator in Spain to offer a Live Casino experience….allow[ing] us to further enhance the gaming experience we offer our customers.”
Jens Von Bahr , Evolution CEO, said that as 888 is the biggest B2C operator in Spain on casino and has a solid track record in implementation, he expects "great results" from the new offering.
