Dafabet is finalising its entry into the Spanish sports betting market after selecting R. Franco Digital’s platform to power its operations in the country.
The Philippines-based brand, which is expected to begin trading in Spain later this year, will integrate its sportsbook into the Spanish gaming technology supplier’s IRIS open-architecture platform. This incorporates payment gateways, player profiles, content, games configuration and reporting systems.
The operator continues to use Comtrade Gaming as its lead platform provider, through a deal struck in 2018.
Dimitris Karatzas, chief executive of Dafabet parent company AsianLogic, said success in Spain could lead to further market entries across Europe.
“R. Franco is an established market leader with more than five decades of industry experience, so we welcome this agreement enthusiastically,” Karatzas said.
“As Dafabet continues to cater to an ever-growing army of fans, we look forward to a successful long-term relationship with the provider, as we look to develop our operations in one of Europe’s most dynamic markets.”
R. Franco Group said the deal fits into its expansion plans for 2020, as it seeks to build on its presence in over 50 countries.
Javier Sacristan Franco, director of R. Franco Digital, said: “Dafabet has already established its global credentials, so we are thrilled to partner with the company for its Spanish debut.”
