For years Spain held one of the most liberal unregulated betting markets in the world. Looking back it seem that the relaxed stance was overlooked with very few people using the countless bookmakers available in Spain. The laws for gambling in Spain began to change in 2008 when legal operators like Pinnacle, Unibet, and Bwin opened in Spain. As larger companies started taking advantage of the untouched Spanish betting community the government start to regulate the industry. In order for bookmakers to offer markets like esports betting they needed to obtain a Spanish license in order to serve players in the region. The Spanish esports betting market will play a huge role in further development of the online betting industry.
