Play’n Go becomes licenced in Argentinian capital
Play’n Go, the online casino supplier, has now obtained a licence in the city of Buenos Aires by the Lotería de la ciudad de Buenos Aires (LOTBA), which is the local gaming regulator. The licence will allow it to supply slot games for all operators that are equally licenced in the city.
Play’n Go was already licenced in the province, so that means that it is now able to provide its products all over the Argentinian province, boasting a massive 17 million population.
The supplier also mentioned that its brand new certification means that all operators who are currently its partners are able to debut in the city, as well as keeping on offering its content in the Argentinian market.
Sissel Weitzhandler, Play’n Go’s chief risk and compliance officer, noted:
“Our strategy remains to engage in every regulated jurisdiction with diligence and care. The speed at which Argentina is re-regulating is very positive and we are looking forward to supporting our partners as they enter this newly regulated and exciting marketplace.”
Latin America head of sales, Cristian Acuna, also said:
“We know that the eyes of the LATAM region will be watching Buenos Aires closely, but we are confident that our wide and varied portfolio of content with resonate strongly with players. Thanks to our experience in Latin America, we know that what players in Argentina enjoy will be different from players in Colombia, Peru or Mexico. Operators can’t take a ‘one-size fits all’ approach to Latin America, and we don’t either.”
Currently, many Argentinian provinces are working on regulating the online gambling scene in the country on an individual basis. Buenos Aires launched its licencing criteria back in February of 2020, and planned a market launch in the last quarter of the same year.
