This story was published more than 4 years ago.

Online betting operator LeoVegas has announced that they've been able to successfully obtain a Spanish gaming license, allowing the group to operate in the jurisdiction.

The license allows LeoVegas to offer both casino and sportsbetting services within Spain, with punters able to wager on their computers using the LeoVegas brand, which has been popular in markets like the UK and the rest of Europe.

Commenting on the licensing LeoVegas CEO Gustaf Hagman said, With LeoVegas' position as 'King of Casino', we are now entering Spain with the ambition to take the mobile position and offer the ultimate gaming experience.

"The Spanish online gambling market have a strong underlying growth with over 20% per year. The Spanish licence is an important step in our continued expansion, in other Spanish-speaking countries, where we have already conducted test launches in Peru and Chile."

We don't know when the games are going live, but we assume that Spanish punters will be able to place a wager in the very near future.
