Gambling license application window

Spain’s gambling regulatory agency is opening a new online application window for companies that wish to enter the gambling business. The DGOJ (Dirección General de Ordenación del Juego) has announced that it will start receiving applications for electronic, telematic or interactive games.
Investors who want to open a company in Spain that activates in the gambling sector have one year to submit the applications for these licenses. Spanish officials have said that the opening of this new application window will increase competitiveness and will encourage dynamic technological development in this particular business field. 
At the same time, the DGOJ highlighted the fact that the regulatory framework in this business field will maintain the same level of protection. Through this framework, the Spanish gambling regulatory agency protects vulnerable client groups such as minors and ensures the protection of consumers in terms of gambling practices. The gambling laws are also formulated to provide stability to the various Spanish companies that operate in this sector. The attorneys at our law firm in Spain can give you complete information about the regulatory framework for this business sector as well as the provisions of the main gambling laws in the country.
