Money spent by Spaniards on sports betting has been rising for five consecutive years according to figures released by Spain’s Europa Press News Agency
Spanish gamblers spent €5.3 million on sports betting in 2016—figures for 2017 weren’t released—up from €4.3 million in 2015.
The data was released by the Spanish government in response to a parliamentary question raised by lower house member, socialist Miguel Ángel Heredia.
