SPAIN: Results of the second call for tender

As already announced in our previous blog post, the General Directorate of Gaming (“DGOJ”) has post today (2 June 2015) a communication with information in connection with the results of the second call for tender and the granting of gambling licenses. In particular, the DGOJ has published a list with (i) the name of the provisional 10 new operators in the Spanish gambling market; and (ii) the name of 6 other operators which have provisionally obtained a general gambling license.

However, the DGOJ does not mention in its communication (i) the name of two of the operators which request was rejected for failing to meet any of the requirements; (ii) the applications that remain in process; and/ or (iii) the singular licenses provisionally granted under this second call for tender. In this sense, it is important to highlight that gambling operators can start from tomorrow, 3 June 2015,  offering games in connection with the provisionally licenses granted today, which will surely produce a reactivation of the Spanish gambling market.
