Playtech allows Spanish licensees access to slots games

2 June 2015
(PRESS RELEASE) -- Playtech, the world’s leading Omni-Channel gaming software and services supplier, will extend its dominance of the Spanish casino market by supplying all existing local licensees with access to its extensive, industry-leading slots portfolio.

Playtech’s existing licensees will offer the company’s industry-leading online and mobile slot content from today – the official date set by Spanish regulator La Dirección General de Ordenación del Juego (DGOJ) for the allowance of casino slot games.

As a result, each licensee will offer Playtech’s best-performing 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 is unrivaled, delivering cutting-edge, profitable Omni-Channel gaming solutions to leading online, mobile and land-based brands across all verticals via Playtech ONE.

Playtech’s pioneering ONE technology allows players a seamless, anywhere-anytime gaming experience across any product, channel and device all 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.

“Our licensees and their players can now enjoy a complete Omni-Channel gaming solution online, on any mobile device, in-venue, and in retail outlets, across casino, bingo, poker, sports, virtual, live, and social, casual and fixed-odds games.”
