Córdoba opens tender process for 10 online gaming licenses – Licensing

Córdoba, Argentina’s second most populous province, has opened its bidding process for 10 online gaming licenses.

Entrants will bid for one of 10 online gaming licenses on offer, each with a term of 15 years.

All bidders must provide their “legal documentation, legal capacity [and] history of technical and economic/financial capacity” to operate online games, as well as their offer for a license fee.

Operators will have until July 5 to submit bids, with licenses set to come into effect from September 14.

The license will allow an operator to offer online casino games and betting on sports, horse racing and certain non-sporting events. Each vertical will be subject to a 10% tax rate on gross gaming revenue.

Córdoba – home to 3.3 million people – passed a bill to legalize online gambling in January, after it was introduced in late 2021. The original version of the bill only allowed for five licenses, before being extended to 10.

Argentina allows province-by-province regulation of gambling.

The province of Buenos Aires granted licenses to seven operators last year, while online gambling in the city of Buenos Aires was officially launched in December 2021.
