SPAIN: New online gaming licenses granted today

The General Directorate of Gaming (“DGOJ”) has just granted today, 2 June 2015, the gambling licenses. The decision has been communicated to the gambling operators through an e-mail sent to the representative for notification purposes with a link to the DGOJ’s electronic site. Operators just have to log-in in their electronic accounts to know if the requested licenses have been granted.

As a result of this first call for tender, that took place in early June 2012, 53 operators were legally entitled to offer their games according to the new Spanish regulatory framework. We assume that the DGOJ will post more information in connection with the results of the second call for tender and the granting of gambling licenses but, until then, we will have to wait to have a picture of the present Spanish regulated market.
