Luckia seals partnership in pursuit of Buenos Aires licence

13 June 2019

The number of operators battling for one of the Argentine capital province’s seven igaming licences continues to grow, with Spanish operator Luckia the latest to enter the fray.

Luckia has partnered local operator Emprendimientos Crown, the twelfth entity to register its intention to take part in the Buenos Aires licensing process.

Should Luckia secure one of the province’s 15-year igaming licences, it will move into its second regulated Latin American market. The operator was awarded an online gambling licence by Colombian regulator Coljuegos in February 2018.

It joins a number of other international operators competing for certification in Buenos Aires. Earlier this week BetCris operator TV Global Enterprises partnered Impresora Internacional de Valores (Ivisa) to register for the process.

Other international operators such as bet365, The Stars Group, William Hill and Flutter Entertainment, as well as suppliers Intralot and Playtech, are also in the hunt for a licence.

Companies have until June 25 to respond to the licence tender.
