Friday, July 21st 2017

2017 is set to go down as a landmark year in the development of online gambling in Latin America.

After adopting detailed regulations and technical standards in 2016, Colombia began accepting applications for internet gaming concessions, with the first of them awarded on June 28, 2017. During the second half of 2017, the spotlight will inevitably continue to fall on Colombia as regulator Coljuegos implements its concession system and a number of countries considering their own reforms watch on.

This report intends to provide an introduction to online gambling regulation in Latin America and includes:

  • Forecasts for the estimated size of the newly opened market in Colombia
  • Outlook for the development of similar licensing regimes in Latin American countries 
  • Key trends to watch as the region’s market continues to take shape over the coming months and years.
