Online gambling markets in Europe have been developing at the speed of light. Just recently Italy Launched Public Tender for 120 Online Gaming Licenses and now it’s time for Spain to show its muscle. Yggdrasil Gaming, known as one of the world’s leading game providers, made a deal with GVC to offer their online slots on Spanish soil. That means that more joy is about to enter the homeland of Flamenco music and bullfights, since Yggdrasil knows how to provide top-quality gaming experience.

The growth of GVC is yet another proof that the Spanish online gaming market has seen a serious growth in recent years. In 2015, Spain added slots to the market and ever since their online casinos have been blooming.
According to Dirección General de Ordenación del Juego (DGOJ), which regulates, authorizes, supervises, controls and, if necessary, penalizes gambling activities in Spain, online gaming revenues went up 37% year-on-year for the third quarter of 2017, reaching the final amount of €140.5 million.
