Spain is one of the Europe's biggest markets or at least one with a huge potential still undeveloped i think so it's quite normal for the figures to just increasing on a yearly or even monthly basis.

This is very interesting statistics. I am curious about the number of heavy players among 646,000 players. This numbers are collected from the legal online sites, so that there should be some more in other sites, as I suppose:)
