- Yggdrasil gaming is set to make its debut in the Spanish casino market
- Partnership with the gambling and online gambling operator facilitates Spanish entry
For years, Yggdrasil has been in partnership with GVC. These two have recently reached an agreement to enter the Spanish casino market. Since GVC is the better half of this romance with an already firm foundation in Spain. As the engines behind the bwin Casino brand, GVC have been the first to offer their partner Yggdrasil a foot in the door leading to Spanish online gaming market.
In full adherence to the Spanish requirements, Yggdrasil is set to go live in the local market during the Q2 2018. Since the addition of new, diverse slots in 2015, the Spanish online gaming market has witnessed a significant surge in growth and development.
The DGOJ (Dirección General de Ordenación del Juego) regulator noted that revenues in online gaming houses had increased by 37% on an annual base for Q3 2017 and stands at €140.5m.
Yggdrasil’s CEO Fredrik Elmqvist indicated that the Spanish gambling market has risen like a phoenix to become one of Europe’s fastest-growing and exciting environments. This makes Spain the best area for Yggdrasil to promote their award-winning and innovative games. Additionally, the developer will also be able to release promotional tools into the market.
The developers’ entry into Spain comes at a good time. Quickly following the entry and establishment of Yggdrasil in Italy and Denmark, expansion into Spain is in line with plans to set a mark and become established in European regulated markets.
The Head of Content at GVC, Andrew Whitworth pointed out that they are ready for this moment. As such, GVC is not going to let this moment pass them. The company is going to be the first ever to bring Yggdrasil into the Spanish layer. Since they have been partners for a while now, GVC seems confident that this is the right move for everyone concerned and it will prove lucrative.
Yggdrasil indicated their knack for business and growth when they entered the Italian market during Q2 2017 and the Danish market earlier this year. At this rate, their partnership with GVC along multiple jurisdictions will only work in favor of the fans of the innovative developer. Actually, such a move protects and ensures that their games expand and the slots lovers across Europe get a fair chance at enjoying Yggdrasil powered games.
For UK-based online casino players, Yggdrasil slots games are available for patronizing in various leading casinos. For example 888 Casino and LeoVegas Casino.
