Online slots increasingly popular in Spain and Latin America
24 September 2008 (Barcelona) — Responding to the increasing popularity of online casino games in Spain and Latin America, Slotland.com — the world’s most popular online slot machine and video poker site — has launched a Spanish online casino, Es.Slotland.com.
The new online casino offers Slotland.com’s unique games and renowned customer service — all in Spanish. A special Spanish-speaking Customer Service team has been trained to assist the many Spanish-speaking players that have been registering in Spain and Latin America.
According to a recent issue of the GPWA Times, 130,000 people in Spain alone gambled online in 2007, a 47% increase from 2006. They wagered a total of €650 million, 57% more than in 2006. A study by Munich-based research company, MECN, has shown that the Spanish online gambling market could grow to a €4.2 billion industry by the year 2010. It defined Spain as a key region for future growth, with overall gambling potential reaching €39 billion in 3 years.
“We have players all over the world – in the UK and Europe, in North America, in Australia. One thing they all have in common is they all like innovative new games like ours, they all like to have their winnings paid quickly, and they all need to trust any online company they deal with,” said Ondrej Tuma of Slotland. “Our Spanish players enjoy Es.Slotland.com because we’re always adding unique new games, we have an excellent Spanish-speaking customer support, and our progressive jackpots are very frequently hit for over $100,000!”
All of the slot machines and video poker games on Es.Slotland.com are tied to the same jackpot pool as the English site. Over the years, Slotland’s progressive jackpot has earned a reputation for being hit quite frequently – every six weeks or so – for over $100,000. The last winner won nearly $200,000 on a $2 spin.
To accommodate Spanish-speaking players worldwide, Es.Slotland.com players can deposit by credit card, Neteller, ewalletXpress or Moneybookers where they can conduct their transactions in the currency of their choice.
Slotland has always had some Spanish-speaking customer service staff but has increased that team to serve the new Spanish site.
Slotland will celebrate the launch of their Spanish online casino in Barcelona, Spain at the CAP Euro conference. Media and affiliates are invited to toast the new venture at Slotland’s exhibition stand Friday, September 26 at noon.
