Q3 : strong increase in the number of Casino players in Spain

By Sophie Couard

In the third quarter of 2018, Casinos generated gross revenues of €181.7 million in the Spanish online gambling market, an increase of 30% over the previous year.

We have often mentioned in our news that land-based casinos in Macau are growing rather nicely, but that is not the only market that is growing. The results of third-quarter casinos sales in Spain were recently published and it shows that there has been an increase here as well.

An increase of 30% in one year

The Dirección General de Ordenacion del Juego (DGOJ) has just published the figures on the Spanish online gambling market. In the third quarter of 2018, casinos generated gross revenues of €181.7 million, an increase of 30% over the previous year. These sales are divided as follows:

  • €97.6 million from sports betting
  • €60.8 million from casinos
  • €19.8 million from poker
  • €3.1 million from bingo
  • €0.32 million from other competitions

More active users, but fewer newcomers

While the number of active users increased by 31%, the number of new registrations decreased by 2%.

In addition, numbers were also released surrounding the visitors of online casinos. We can say that the number of active users has increased by 31% to 812,007 people. On the other hand, the number of new registrations dropped by 2% to 232,012 users.

So it would seem that players from Spain really like to play and sports betting and casino games are especially popular. You too can play in an online casino today, and we can recommend a few casinos such as Wunderino, Highroller or Cheri Casino.
