As much of the world is still deciding its relationship with online casino gaming, Argentina is no different. However, the recent reintroduction of the gambling market for those in Buenos Aires brought with it some very interesting changes. This move, though, has finally been officially stumped by off the Official Gazette of Argentina, the Boletin Oficial.
This will see the long-contested move finally come around, after many years of argument and discussion. Known as Decree 181, this was previously agreed upon in December 2018. Now, the move has been officially put through and casino regulation will come into place across Buenos Aires.
This will bring in new provisions for online casino gaming and gambling services to come into the province. It’s also going to see various changes to the way that governance is held over regulated betting, and will also see changes to regulation across the rest of the country in time. Indeed, Buenos Aires is the first province to carry out legalisation of gaming and betting in this manner. With each government having the chance to set their own practices here, it’ll be interesting to see who follows their lead.
Any gambling operators who will be working within the new Buenos Aires scene will be expected to pay a 25% tax. At the moment, licensing online gambling licenses are likely to be issued out as a wider part of the Decree 181 which has been introduced.
