University Carlos III of Madrid (UC3M) has published a new study which reveals that the problem gambling rate in Spain is just 0.3%.

José Antonio Gómez Yáñez, Professor of sociology and member of the Institute of Policy and Governance at UC3M, said that the objective of the research was to analyse “in a real and verifiable way” the relationship between Spanish society and gambling.

Gambling is subject to much debate, like many productive activities, which emphasises the need for this type of study which provides an objective view, based on data, for public opinion, administrations and the media. It is about offering real and updated data on gambling as part of the habits of Spanish society.”

“It must be said that the vast majority of those who play do so responsibly, they know that it has a cost, like entering a show.”

Alejandro Landaluce, chief executive of industry association Consejo Empresarial del Juego (Cejuego), said: “Governments are increasingly concerned about a potentially inappropriate level of gambling participation in society and we, as representatives of the sector, share these concerns.

“For this reason, we support this type of scientific study that allow us to know the reality of social behaviour towards gambling, beyond individual or collective perceptions, in order to act in those areas that are necessary within our responsibility.”

The study showed that the majority of the population takes part in draw-based lottery games, with 25.8m players taking part in the Christmas Lottery; 14.5m in the El Niño Lottery; 14m in Primitiva Lotteries and 8.5m using Organización Nacional de Ciegos Españoles (ONCE) branded scratchcard games.

Spiffbet has signed an agreement with Livelounge Ltd, a company registered in the British Virgin Islands, to acquire the online casinos Sir Jackpot and Live Lounge for a maximum of SEK 2.5 million.

The transaction means that Spiffbet acquires the rights to the domains sirjackpot. com and livelounge. com with associated customer databases and other intellectual property rights. The acquisition includes two employees who will be integrated into Spiffbet.

The acquisition will be completed with two payment tranches. One tranche consists of a promissory note of SEK 2 million to be redeemed after approximately two months either in cash or by set-off against newly issued Spiffbet shares, and the second tranche through a cash payment of SEK 0.5 million which will be paid out provided that certain conditions are met by 30 June 2021.

“We continue to deliver on our growth and acquisition strategy. Sir Jackpot and Live Lounge contribute to our existing business with both sales and earnings, which allows us to allocate fixed costs on a larger revenue base and increase our bargaining power vis-à-vis suppliers and partners. In addition, we are adding two qualified employees, which is important in the growth phase we are in now,” Henrik Svensson, CEO of Spiffbet, said.

“This is a good add-on acquisition that gives us two more established brands to work with. Thanks to the fact that the business is on the same platform as us and with the same support system in general, there will be minimal measures to integrate the business. We also welcome the two employees as employees of Spiffbet. It suits us perfectly to strengthen the organization now that we are accelerating the business of acquisitions made in 2020,” Maria Boelius, Head of Casino Operations at Spiffbet, said.
