Guarantees for game and entertainment companies

The game and entertainment sector represents 3.0% of Spain's GDP, measured in terms of amounts wagered, employing over 85,000 people directly and another 175,000 indirectly. The gaming industry contributes over 1.7 billion euros to public coffers, but above all, it advocates for the recreational nature of its activities as another way to enjoy game and entertainment time.

With over 25 years of experience providing guarantees to gaming companies, we are currently able to offer any type of guarantee related to the development of gaming activities, primarily technical guarantees to the Regulatory Bodies responsible for this industry, whether at the regional level or at the national level.
