The new Spanish Gambling Act

London, June 14, 2011


The Spanish parliament recently passed the new Gambling Act, which finally establishes a regulatory framework for operating online gaming activities. Under this new Act, gaming companies will have clear rules for operating and advertising in Spain, and those aiming to operate in one of the most relevant markets in Europe will need a clear picture of this new regulatory landscape.

The session will cover the most relevant features of the new Act, including the licensing system, the requirements under the new regime, the applicable tax regime, and the likely timeframe in which the Spanish authorities will have the new regulatory framework fully in force.
