This week, the Portuguese regulator of gambling, Serviço de Regulação e Inspeção de Jogos (SRIJ), issued the seventh license to provide online gambling services. Sociedade Figueira Praia, a Portuguese company specializing in betting and casinos, was the last to receive a license from SRIJ. The operator will provide players with options for online gambling and sports betting under the brand Casino Portugal.

Casino and poker are taxed from 15% to 30% of the total income, which also binds small and medium-sized operators.Follow us on
