NetEnt Games Coming to Spain in 2015

A change to Spanish gambling licenses means that players in the country will be able to access NetEnt casino games in early 2015.

Although the EU is supposed to theoretically be an open market, this is not the case for the online gambling market. Basically, many gambling brands have been unable to operate in the Spanish market because of 2012 changes that were made to legislation. Those changes resulted in licensing being heavily restricted, with limited rounds of licensing being held. This November, a new round of licensing has opened up, which will also allow for Spanish casino fans to finally play NetEnt games.

Licensing Changes Allow for Slots

The crux of the problem has been that Spanish licensing has not allowed for online slots to be played legally in the country. By the time the new round of licensing has been finished, there will now be two categories for operators. A general license will provide wide coverage, as operators can host all games. However, the interesting addition is that of a slot-specific license.

2015 for NetEnt

Once licensing formalities have been concluded, it is expected that new operators will be free to provide slots and other casino games from January of 2015 onwards. To serve the adjusted Spanish market, NetEnt has already announced its intention to enter. Company CEO Per Erikson had the following to say: “We are currently looking into the application process for Spain”. He admitted that NetEnt currently has no traffic from the Spanish market, which is something that the developer wishes to change.

NetEnt Slots on the Way

Online casino players in Spain will have many more gaming opportunities when NetEnt finally joins the fiesta. Fans of South Park will enjoy the Reels of Chaos slot as well as the original version. There are even more video slots that are based on popular culture, including Aliens, Creature from the Black Lagoon, and Scarface. Original slot creations include the Jack Hammer series and Gonzo’s Quest.
