Play’n GO Acquires Licenses in Spain and Colombia
For the past couple of years, one of the leading iGaming developers Play’n GO has been taking steps to conquer regulated markets, such as the UK, Latvia, Scandinavia and Italy. On this mission, the company has just announced of another major milestone: Play’n GO is now licensed and certified as compliant to supply its games to Spain and Colombia.
According to a report from iGaming Business, Spain has shown tremendous growth over the years, showing an 84% year-on-year revenue growth from slot games that amounted to €21.5m during the second quarter of 2017. The official gambling regulator in the country is the Dirección General de Ordenación del Juego (DGOJ).
As Colombia became the first jurisdiction in Latin America to formally approve online gambling in October 2016, both operators and game suppliers have been eager to get a license from the local regulator Coljuegos. Among the very few operators that have gone live in this new market is Codere and Colbet, which offer games from iGaming studios like Playtech and NetEnt.
That said, the report hasn’t mentioned any specifics regarding launch dates, casinos or games that will be available to the local players, but we’re likely to hear more updates on this in the coming weeks. Some of their hottest games so far are Hugo 2, GEMiX, Fire Joker, and Pimped. This will be Play’n GO’s 13th license, alongside Alderney, Denmark, Italy, the United Kingdom, Malta, Belgium, Croatia, Czechia, Lithuania, Latvia and Romania.
Here’s what Sissel Weitzhandler, Group Compliance Manager of Play’n GO, said: “Play’n GO has a strong history of providing quality, certified gaming content to European and LatAm operators, and it’s these licences which make us attractive to local operators.”
“These in-depth certification processes differ from country to country, so it’s testament to our compliance team that we’ve acquired these without any issues, particularly with Spain and Colombia’s regulatory environments being so different.”
“Each certification program or software licence we acquire secures our position as the leading games provider to regulated markets, and the experience gained throughout the numerous processes will benefit us as we continue to grow into new territories.”
