Spanish Regulator Expects Safer Gambling Decree to be Approved This Month
Spain's new Royal Decree on Safer Gambling is expected to be signed off by the end of the month, says DGOJ.
The Spanish gambling regulator, DGOJ, has provided updates on the country's new Royal Decree on Safer Gambling Environments.
According to DGOJ Director General Mikel Arana, the decree is ready to receive technical endorsement before final sign-off by the Council of Ministers by the end of the month.
The new decree aims to offer more extensive consumer protections across all 17 autonomous communities in Spain. Among other measures, gambling licensees will be required to categorize gamblers and apply specific measures for vulnerable groups, such as young gamblers and self-excluded participants.
The new central self-exclusion register will cover the entire country, replacing the current fragmented systems.
