NetEnt links up with Codere ahead of expected Spanish approval

Tuesday, April 7, 2015 Totally Gaming

Online gaming content firm Net Entertainment (NetEnt) has begun preparations for its expected approval in Spain by entering into a licensing agreement with domestic gaming operator Codere.

Under the deal, NetEnt will deliver a range of casino games to Codere’s online casino service in Spain. The move will enable players in the country to access a suite of online NetEnt titles.

The move comes at a time when NetEnt is currently undertaking the licensing process in the country. The company hopes to launch its products and services in Spain later this year, with the new deal set to support its expansion into the market.

Anna Romboli, communications director at NetEnt, told TotallyGaming.com that although it has identified Spain as a key expansion region and Codere will help boost its presence in the country, Codere’s operations in the Italian and Latin American regions will also support future growth.

“Spain is one of our prioritised countries when it comes to new regulated markets and we’re currently in the licensing process with the ambition to deliver our products and services to the Spanish market in 2015,” Romboli said.

“Codere is an important customer, being a market leader in Spain that also has a significant presence in Italy and Latin America. We are looking forward to the opportunity to provide their online players with our world-class thrilling games.”

Meanwhile, NetEnt has also announced that it has been awarded operating and software licences for the UK market by the UK Gambling Commission.

NetEnt is already active in the UK but had been operating under a temporary licence since the introduction of new rules and regulations last year. The awarding of the new licences will confirm NetEnt’s presence as a regulated and approved operator, thus allowing it to continue offering services in the UK.

“The UK licenses are important to us and, in line with our growth strategy to expand on regulated markets, they are even more important considering that Britain is the largest gaming market in Europe,” Romboli said.
