The Lotería de la ciudad de Buenos Aires (LOTBA) has granted Play’n GO a license to operate in Buenos Aires. This gaming provider now joins the list of other companies with licenses waiting to launch in Argentina’s capital. After receiving accreditation from the gaming regulator, Play’n GO will now be able to offer its entire range of gambling titles to the residents of Argentina’s capital province. 

This province boasts over 17 million people, making it a prime market for various online gaming providers. Furthermore, it has made significant strides in developing laws and regulations that govern the gambling industry. Keep in mind, Argentina is taking a province-by-province approach in its plans to roll out iGaming. After receiving the license from the regulator, it means online operators will be able to source various iGaming services and products from Play’n GO. Apart from enjoying the services and products, operators will benefit from the company’s vast expertise and knowledge in the iGaming space.
