Live casino games have finally reached Spain as 888 become the first online casino to offer live roulette in the European country.
The live dealer service is being provided by Evolution Gaming who has an existing deal with 888. The casino was the first company to have its own private branded room at Evolution’s Latvia studio and has always placed live casino games as a priority.
The new live casino games will fit seamlessly into 888’s existing Spanish casino product – a product which has gained significant popularity since its launch. In a press release announcing the launch of the Spanish Live Roulette, 888 claimed to host a 20% share of all casino and poker play in the country.
Until now, no online casinos had launched live casino games for the Spanish market due primarily to the language barriers in place. In order to cope with the problems associated with offering live casino games in a non-English speaking country, the games will be streamed live from a Spanish land-based casino.
Speaking about their popularity within the Spanish market, Itai Freiberger, chief operating office of 888, expressed the importance of being the first to offer live casino games in Spain.
He added: “888 has received a tremendous vote of confidence from the Spanish players, and the live casino product will allow us to further enhance the gaming experience.”
