Evolution and 888’s historic first with Live Roulette in Spain

Evolution Gaming, the world leader in video-streamed Live Dealer gaming, launched an historic first this week with 888’s Spanish Live Roulette – the first international online operator to offer a Live Roulette service for Spain’s newly regulated market.

Broadcasting from Evolution’s Live Roulette studio facilities at Casino Rincon de Pepe in Murcia, 888 becomes the first operator to stream live dealer Roulette games on the internet from a licensed land-based casino in Spain.

The service, now live at www.888.es and hosted by native Spanish dealers, streams live games, 16 hours a day, seven days a week, to online players.

888’s market-leading move into online Live Roulette follows the company’s widely reported successes in Spain’s new dot.es market. 888Poker and 888casino went live in Spain in June.

Yuval Benyamini, VP Regulated Markets at 888 said: “We were very keen to gain first-to-market advantage and Evolution has enabled us to achieve that goal with a world-class, localised Live Roulette product that is a great fit for our brand.”

Benyamini added: “We already enjoy significant market share in Spain and we are confident that our new Live Roulette service will help us to acquire and retain even more satisfied customers.”

Sebastian Johannisson, Head of Account Management at Evolution, commented: “It is well know that Evolution is fully committed to helping operators achieve first-to-market advantage in newly regulated markets. It’s fantastic that we have achieved this for 888 in Spain. Together we are delivering a world-class, fully locally compliant service that is immediately broadening 888’s revenue base in a young and exciting market.”
