Play’n Go Secures Permit to Operate in Buenos Aires

Leading supplier of iGaming products Play’n Go has been given the go-ahead to operate in Buenos Aires, expanding the company’s Latin American footprint.

Play’n Go Dives into Buenos Aires with Permit 

Play’n Go has obtained a license from the Lotería de la Ciudad de Buenos Aires (LOTBA), joining the ranks of companies that are now preparing to launch in Buenos Aires. Accredited by LOTBA, the gaming regulator in Argentina’s capital province, Play’n Go will be able to bring its entire brand portfolio to the fore.

Argentina is rolling out iGaming on a province-by-province basis, with Buenos Aires long-touted as one of the most desirable destinations and the jurisdictions where gambling laws have made the most progress.

“Thanks to our experience in Latin America, we know that what players in Argentina enjoy will be different from players in Colombia, Peru, or Mexico. Operators can’t take a ‘one-size fits approach to Latin America, and we don’t either,” Acuna added.
