Italy names online gaming licence applicants

23 April 2018

Italian regulator Agenzia delle Dogane e dei Monopoli (ADM) has revealed the identity of some companies that have applied for online gaming licences in the country.

Last month, the ADM confirmed that 80 operators had submitted an application for a licence ahead of the deadline on March 19.

Some companies opted to put forward separate applications for multiple licenses, with the fee for each licence set at €200,000 ($245,500), fetching around €16m for the ADM.

Bet365, PokerStars, Luckia, Videoslots and Lottomatica are among the brands that have submitted an application, according to CasinoNewsDaily.com, while a number of Italian land-based casinos have also applied.

The new licences will be valid until December 31, 2022.
