Last week lawmakers in Buenos Aires authorized online gambling, allowing the activity to be offered in the Argentinian province.
The move comes after the province approved of Decree 181 last year, and was fully authorized and put into effect last week. Punters will now have the opportunity to play slots, table games, virtual sports, sportsbetting, and lotteries all from the luxury of their own home. Operators will have to pay an application fee and pay 25% of revenues generated in the province.
The regulation makes Buenos Aires the first province in Argentina to give online betting the go-ahead. The activity has been popular in the country, but widely left un-checked, as offshore operators target punters in the country. It's unknown if things will be clamped down on moving forward with these developments, but the South American country certainly has a foothold in the regulated market.
