PokerStars receives Spanish license to offer sports betting and slots

3 Jun 2015

(PRESS RELEASE) --, an Amaya Inc. brand, today announced that it has received provisional licenses from the Spanish gaming regulator, the Dirección General de Ordenación del Juego (DGOJ), allowing it to offer sports betting and slots to players in Spain.

PokerStars already holds licenses in Spain to provide poker and casino table games such as Roulette and Blackjack.

The last twelve months have been very busy for PokerStars' Spanish business with the brand deploying a range of new products, while continuing to promote the game of poker, which remains central to the company’s future plans, through a variety of initiatives.

Some notable recent achievements in Spain include:

· Setting new records in live European poker tournaments with PokerStars’ European Poker Tour Barcelona in August 2014

· Signing Cristiano Ronaldo and Neymar Jr as brand ambassadors to promote the game of poker

· Being the first jurisdiction in which PokerStars’ popular Spin and Go tournaments were launched

· The launch of Roulette and Blackjack casino games on desktop and mobile platforms

· Launching ‘live dealer’ Roulette games on desktop

“We’re very pleased to receive provisional licenses to expand our games offering on PokerStars in Spain,” said Gino Appiotti, President of Southern European Operations for PokerStars. “Our operation of online poker, live poker and now online casino shows that players trust us to deliver a variety of games in a fun and exciting way. We look forward to building on this by launching games under these new licenses”

Despite being a relative newcomer to offering online casino games in Spain, the quality of the PokerStars’ casino product has earned the trust of players, with the brand achieving a double digit share of the Spanish online casino market, while maintaining a strong number one position in poker.

PokerStars intends to provide a timeline for the launch of slots games and sports betting in Spain in the near future.
