Malaysia-based GentingBet has applied for casino and sports betting license. The company has already a strong presence in the UK and its intended Spanish entry is a symbol of its ambitions for European ambitions.
A company statement said GentingBet with its experience and expertise was ready and eager for the market opportunity in Spain.
Jeremy Taylor, Managing Director of Genting Online, said: “Gambling is an important part of Spanish culture. The country is of significant size, has one of the highest per capita spend in Europe and has consistently grown during the past 10 years or so.
“Genting is a huge global business with a significant UK casino estate and has big ambitions for its mobile, live casino and sportsbook products. We believe GentingBet’s wonderful heritage, social responsibility focus, live casino expertise and comprehensive betting and gaming suite will resonate well in Spain—as it will other European markets.
“Having recently opened our new Interactive Headquarters in Malta, we are now perfectly placed to capitalise on the opportunity that the European online market presents.”
“We have therefore taken advantage of the one-year window offered to operators and submitted the application to Spain’s Dirección General de Ordenación del Juego (DJOJ) regulatory body. If successful, we hope to roll out in Q4 of 2019.”
