Tuesday June 02,2015 : PLAYTECH ONLINE SLOTS AMONG THE FIRST INTO SPANISH MARKET
Regulator opens the market for slot action.
Playtech licensees in the Spanish market, newly opened for online slot action by the regulator, will be among the first to have games available following the release Tuesday by the software provider of its products.
A statement from Playtech advises that the company will supply all existing local licensees with access to its extensive desktop and mobile slots portfolio from today – the official date set by Spanish regulator La Dirección General de Ordenación del Juego (DGOJ) permission to offer casino slot games.
As a result, each licensee will offer Playtech’s slot content including locally themed in-house and premium branded games from major studios such as Paramount and Universal, and popular land-based titles, giving them access to the most complete omni-channel offering available within the Spanish market.
The Playtech offering in Spain will be delivered across all verticals via Playtech ONE, the company's technology that gives online players an anywhere-anytime gaming experience across any product, channel and device using a single account and single wallet.
The Spanish gaming regulator approved slot games in July last year and re-opened its licensing window in November, the first time this has taken place since the market regulated in June 2012.
Shimon Akad, COO, Playtech, said: “The inclusion of online casino games and slots in Spain is a major breakthrough and will serve to increase our market share there."
