Uruguay On Plans To Introduce New Laws To Regulate Gambling Services

Uruguay government is on plans to introduce a new legal framework seeking a check on internationally licensed iGaming operators from targeting local players. Due to the lack of controls that could stop casino players and sports bettors from accessing these gambling sites, despite online gambling prohibited in the country.

With the new rules, the government may block the unauthorised operators from luring Uruguayan customers.

Most of the gambling services are conducted by state-run monopoly and its subsidiaries. Previously, many attempts have been made by different law makers to introduce to have a more liberal approach towards the provision of this type of services in the country, but their efforts have mostly gone in vain.

The announcement to implement a new framework comes less than a month after another South American country; Colombia officially opened its market for licensed online gambling operators, issuing its first licence to local operators on June 30. The government officially adopted revised gambling laws last fall in the country.
