The Spanish Gambling Market – 2nd edition (2011)

Liberalisation ahead – will it change the game?

In May the Spanish government published a law (Ley 13/2011) that will transform and liberalise most sectors of the Spanish online gambling market from beginning of 2012. Therefore Spain is currently on the top of the strategic agenda of most industry executives. While other jurisdictions (e.g., Germany) are still figuring out the details of their likely liberalisation, Spain is ready to start right now.

Increased complexity calls for more sophisticated analyses

In previous years, announcements of a coming market liberalisation were always met with great enthusiasm, but now - at least since the partly negative experiences in France - things are more complex, and more questions emerge: What are the tax rates? What other regulations will be imposed (e.g., authentication, IT systems, ...)? What is the size of the market? How much will it still grow, or is it perhaps already saturated?
The increased complexity of the market has also led to increased demands on market research and analyses - simple and short answers just do not work. Therefore, MECN spent several months compiling the most comprehensive and detailed report (ca. 120 pages) on the Spanish gambling market.
