A series of land casinos in Spain have seen increased raids by the country's national police, who're carrying out investigations related to underage betting compliance failures.
The raids have come after reports that minors have been able to get into casinos in the town of Oviedo, where they can play slot machines. The children got into the casino by using fake IDs and by slipping past security at the sites. The law enforcement officials are working to enforce compliance of checking national identity cards before allowing entrance to the sites.
Spain has a large gambling market, and the compliance will need to be increased to make sure that problem betting behaviors don't expand among youth sectors. A previous study of 1,400 children aged 14 to 18 revealed that 1.2% of respondents have already dealt with problem betting issues already.
