Earlier this month we reported on the intention of UK gambling group William Hill plc to extricate itself from Victoria Apuestas, a Spanish sportsbetting venture in which the British company partnered with the Codere group.  This week, Yogonet reports that Victoria Apuestas and Grupo Rubio have inked a deal through which Victoria will be able to expand its retail presence.
 
The initial agreement includes eight centres, but the management of both companies are confident there will be further opportunities in the Spanish market going forward, a joint statement claims.
 
The deal was signed by the president of Grupo Rubio, José Antonio Rubio, and by Gerardo González, Director of Partners Relations for Victoria Apuestas SA. Development.
 
Grupo Rubio operates 16 betting establishments in Spain's Aragón region.
