888 Poker Now Goes Mobile in Spain
There are many online and mobile Poker sites that are pulling out of the Spanish market due to high taxation and licensing fees and also due to there not being the volume of players available in Spain to make paying those fees cost effective.
However the Gibraltar based 888 Poker site has recently launched a brand new Poker App for their Spanish customers and it would appear that they have no intention of pulling out of the Spanish online Poker marketplace!
This newly launched Spanish facing Poker App gives players the ability to set the language displayed on the App to either Spanish or English and once downloaded players can then access a range of live Poker table ring games and also take part in several daily Poker Tournaments.
As an added incentive for Spanish players to sign up, a generous new player Euro bonus is available which is easy to claim and comes with a fair set of terms and conditions. For more information visit the 888 Poker site and if you are accessing that site from Spain you will automatically be diverted to their Spanish based website.
It is worth also noting that the 888 Poker mobile App can also be used to directly contact their 24 hours a day Spanish customer support team who are always on hand to offer guidance to anyone requiring any help downloading the App or if they have any Poker related questions.
