Pragmatic Play given the go ahead in Spain and Portugal

After being approved to operate in the UK last April, Slots developer Pragmatic Play has now been certified in both the Spanish and Portuguese markets.

The news comes after both the Spanish Directorate General for the Regulation of Gambling (DGOJ) and the Portuguese Gambling Inspection and Regulation Service (SRIJ) have approved the company’s online games for distribution.

Yossi Barzely, head of business development at Pragmatic Play, said: “We’re very proud to have been given the green light in Spain and Portugal as we look to expand worldwide.

“It represents another breakthrough for Pragmatic play and highlights our commitment to our European expansion in regulated markets.

“We’re certain that our existing suite of games and forthcoming titles will prove to be just as popular with players in both countries as they have been elsewhere.”

The certification is an expansion of Pragmatic Play’s continued plans for international growth, having gone live in Denmark in August.

The company followed up its successful expansion into the UK market, by gaining a licence in the Bahamas, that serves to to complement its existing licences in Malta, Italy, and Romania.
