Online gambling growth in Spain

A surprising new growth area for online gambling has got players and operators’ attention alike – Spain.

The Spanish government recently released astonishing figures that indicate a 41% increase in gross gambling revenue within Spain in just the last quarter of last year – €17.4 million of which came solely from online gambling, a 17% since the previous quarter.

The news comes after Spanish online gambling had regulations imposed on it in June last year, limiting betting amounts by players to maximum online bets of €10 and taxing online casinos a very strict 25% income tax, as well as VAT.
