ADVERTISING UNDER THE NEW SPANISH GAMBLING LAW


We take a look at the modifying iGaming landscape in Europe's next major market, Spain.


Firstly, we delve into the regulatory position following the implementation of the Spanish Gaming Law.

ON MAY 29. 2011. the Spanish Gaming Law came into force. This law regulates the activities of lotteries, sportsbetting (and other types of bets), roulette, poker, blackjack, bingo, raffles, contests and other games, provided by domestic Spanish operators or international operators holding a Spanish gaming licence. The law establishes that these activities can be performed via physical presence or electronic means such as the Internet, television, radio and via mobile.

With the liberalisation process up and ninning and developing at a rapid pace, any operator willing to obtain a gaming licence in Spain should, ideally, already be working on it. Since the publishing of the Law in the Spanish Official Gazette, many other draft statutory regulations have also been passed and are currently under discussion. The main rules currently being discussed are via two draft Royal Decrees; one which sets out the requirements and conditions to obtain/receive authorisation for a gaming licence, and the other which sets out the technical requirements that the gaming platform and all the appliances for the various types of games will need to comply with. Both aspects are crucial for national and international gaming operators and these Royal Decrees will begin to shape the Spanish gaming market.

In this article, we will focus on the aspects of the new regime that affect the advertising, promotion and sponsorship of gambling activities in Spain.
