Juan Espinosa García appointed Spanish regulator’s new director-general

In an important new development, Spain’s national gambling regulator - Dirección General de Ordenación del Juego (DGOJ) – has named Juan Espinosa García as its new director-general. Since July 2013, García has occupied the post of deputy director-general.

Before joining the DGOJ, García worked for five years as deputy director within the Advocacy Division of the Spanish National Competition Commission.

The news of his appointment comes after the DGOJ in November revealed significant improvement in the Spain’s online gaming sector for the 3 months to September 30.

Online gaming revenue in the third quarter was €103 million ($107.3 million), up 22% during the same period in 2015.

Sports betting has been the major source of revenue in Q3 as it generated an income of €56.8 million. This was 15% more than in 2015. Also, online casino revenue jumped up 57% year-on-year to €28.4 million.
