BetConstruct to provide betting solutions to iJuego.es sportsbook

In order to flood top sports betting regions with its betting solutions, BetConstruct has agreed a deal with Spanish operator iJuego.es to provide range of its solutions to the Spanish partner.

This is not the first time they have entered into such a deal with a leading betting operator based on another region as Betsoft has entered into several similar deals to cover a major part of the world and their latest attempt could be their best attempt to enter into the highly lucrative Spanish sports betting market which is known for generating a maximum revenue out of soccer bets.
