Yggdrasil Gaming has recently signed a new partnership agreement that will see the company enter the Spanish online gambling market.
Under the provisions of the new deal with Casino Barcelona Online, the renowned developer will offer its extensive portfolio of games to customers in Spain.
The company’s offering includes such popular games as Valley of the Gods, Golden Fish Tank, Vikings go Berzerk and Vikings go Wild, and is sure to attract a wide audience of punters.
The latest move represents a part of Yggdrasil Gaming long-term strategy to maintain its presence in important regulated online gambling markets.
Commenting on the launch, Fredrik Elmqvist, Chief Executive Officer at Yggdrasil Gaming said his company was thrilled to go live in Spain and offer its games to local players with such a significant brand as Casino Barcelona.
Elmqvist added the local market had shown consistently strong growth and an increase in popularity over the last few years, which was the main reason Yggdrasil Gaming was excited about the upcoming opportunities.
He also said they were looking forward to a long and successful partnership that would see them continue to bring new and innovative content to the Spanish market.
The partnership with the Spanish casino operator was initially announced back in November last year. According to their agreement, Yggdrasil Gaming agreed to offer its lineup of games, as well as its in-game promotional tool BOOST.
It seems that Yggdrasil is eager to expand its presence in the Spanish market, as this is the second deal recently signed with an operator in this country. Last month, the leading developer of online casino content inked a deal with Casino Gran Madrid, but it still remains to be seen when will the players in Spain gain access to the company’s offering.
The Spanish online gambling market has been on the rise over the last couple of years. This growth trend was largely attributed to the decision of the government to authorize online slot games five years ago.
According to the country’s regulator, Dirección General de Ordenación del Juego, online gambling saw its revenue jump by 25% last year, while the growth continued in the first quarter of 2019 as well.
