Casinobarcelona.es launches new Playtech casino

Tuesday 14th November 2017
Spanish online casino operator Casinobarcelona.es has announced the launch of an exclusive online and mobile Playtech casino on Playtech’s iPoker.es website, Spain’s largest poker network.

Players using the site now have access to more than 100 casino slot, table and card games with a host of new Playtech and premium branded progressive jackpot content launching in the coming months.

Games live today include the Age of the Gods suite, White King, Halloween Fortune and Jackpot Giant as well as a number of premium branded games.

Casinobarcelona.es, owned by Grup Peralada, a family-run group of businesses that operates in a variety of sectors including entertainment and culture, is a land-based venue and gaming brand in Spain that opened its online casino in 2012.

Xavier Ballester, Director at Casino Barcelona Online, said: “This agreement is part of the strategy of Casino Barcelona (both the physical and online casino) to continually strive to offer players the most comprehensive selection of games and content with the highest standards of quality.

“Incorporating Playtech table games, slots and poker into our online product portfolio gives us the opportunity to offer our players a higher level of entertainment excellence.”

Playtech’s latest licensee has also joined several other brands on iPoker.es adding even more players to the well-established Spanish network that has been running since poker was regulated in Spain in 2011.

Casino Barcelona selected Playtech’s network as it utilises the companies Source-Based Rake (SBR) Player Valuation Formula. SBR generates additional recreational player traffic by changing the way in which individual player value is calculated, basing it on a player’s net contribution to network liquidity instead of looking at how much gross rake and fee a player has generated.

Pedro Extremera, Spain Country Manager, Playtech, said: “We’re delighted to have Casino Barcelona join our growing Spanish network and contribute to the growing success of iPoker.es. We look forward to working with the team there and adding to their growing online gaming offering.”
