Call for further information on Buenos Aires betting licences

Argentine political party Coalición Cívica ARI has requested further information concerning the granting of gambling licences in the capital of Buenos Aires

Within the party’s request, nine deputies and senators mentioned the names of two local businessmen, Cristóbal López, who is under investigation for corruption, and Daneil Angelici, the former president of top flight football club Boca Juniors.

It was further noted that López and Angelici are associated with Bin Baires SA and Intralot and Stars Interactive Limited, respectively.

This is significant, as in order to participate in the process by which licences were awarded, each international company had to partner with a local operator.

Furthermore, legislators urged the local regulator to ‘indicate how it was proven that each of these licences complied with the established prohibitions’, asking for the relevant documentation to be attached.

The Provincial Institute of Lottery and Casinos of Buenos Aires announced the seven companies that will be able to legally operate in the province on 31 December 2020.

Another seven proposals were received by the IPLyC, and rejected by its Technical Evaluation Commission.

The launch of Buenos Aires’ founding online gambling market will be composed of the following foreign and domestic partnerships: ArgenBingo BA and William Hill; Pasteko SA and Hillside Media Malta (bet365); Hotel Casino Tandil and Playtech Plc; Boldt SA and Cassava Enterprises Gibraltar (888 Holdings); Atlántica de Juegos y Stars Interactive Limited (Flutter Plc); Binbaires SA and Intralot SA; Casino de Victoria and Betsson Group.
