Peru Preparing Legislation For Online Gambling, Sports Betting

Legislation to regulate online gambling and land-based sportsbooks could be unveiled as soon as next month, according to Peru’s chief gaming regulator.

A legislative proposal drafted by casino regulatory authority DGJCMT is currently under review by the legal department of Peru’s Ministry of Foreign Trade and Tourism, which oversees the agency.

“We believe that the bill will be introduced in Congress by the end of July of this year,” Manuel San Román Benavente, the DGJCMT’s director, told GamblingCompliance in an email.

Although not yet published, San Román said the legislation will authorize online casinos and sportsbooks, in addition to sports-betting terminals in physical locations. However, internet casino cafes will be prohibited.
