Playtech and GVC expand Live Roulette offering in key Spanish market
Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

Playtech, the world’s leading gambling technology company, has announced the launch of three new Live Roulette tables with industry giant GVC in the key growth market of Spain.

The new tables – the first Roulette tables designed around Playtech Live’s unique green screen technology – will be available via GVC’s PartyCasino, PartyPoker and Bwin brands, and will be hosted 24/7 by native Spanish-speaking dealers.

The introduction of the three new tables comes hot on the heels of GVC’s market-first launch of Quantum Ruleta Live in December 2019 – the first Roulette game available in Spain to offer exciting multiplier boosts in every game round, plus unique Quantum Boost and Quantum Leap special events.

Figures released in late 2019 by Spanish gambling regulator Dirección General de Ordenación del Juego (DGOJ) show a 22.5% YoY increase in gross gaming revenue (GGR) from online gambling to €812.0m* – the fourth consecutive year of annual growth in the territory. With Ficom Leisure predicting the market will be worth at least €1 billion annually by 2023, with potential to reach as much as €1.5 billion**, Spain represents a combination unique in European online gambling markets of established success and sustained, long-term growth.

Shimon Akad, Chief Operating Officer at Playtech, comments: “Central to our partnership model with licensees is our commitment to deliver innovative and engaging products with industry leading and reliable technology. I am pleased to see our operators trust us to always be there for them. With Spain a highly attractive market presenting many ongoing opportunities, we are delighted to be able to support our partners on delivering growth and leading on innovation across the region. GVC is a key international partner for us, so the expansion of what is already a ground-breaking live offering is a fantastic sign of things to come.”

Colin Cole-Johnson, Gaming Product Director at GVC adds: “Delivering a varied, engaging experience for our players is central to our mission across all markets, so being able to expand our Live offering in a key growth territory is a great step forward. The innovative technology behind the new tables allows us to deliver a distinct feel across three individual brands, and with the support of highly trained native-speaking dealers, we believe we can offer our Spanish players something truly special.”

The Greek Super League has announced Malta-headquartered sports betting operator Interwetten as its gold sponsor for the next three years, starting with the 2020-2021 season.

The sponsorship represents an evolution of the partnership formed last year, where Interwetten joined the league as its official sports betting partner for the 2019-2020 season.

“We are very pleased that the Super League’s cooperation with Interwetten is now entering a new era, as it is officially the Gold Sponsor of the Super League,” Leonidas Boutsikaris, president of the Super League, said.

He described Interwetten’s “vote of confidence” in the Super League as a key driver of progress and development of football locally, and indicating that a broader strategy to attract more investment and sponsorship was succeeding.

Dominik Beier, representative for Interwetten’s board of directors, described Greece as a very important market for the operator.

“So we want to continue to invest in sports here and expand our position. The naming rights for the Super League championship is the most important sports deal that exists in Greece. The Super League opens up a wealth of opportunities for us, both for communication and action, across the country and throughout the year,” he said.
