Betsson, 888 via its Cassava Enterprises subsidiary and Italy’s Sisal Entertainment have secured local partners in pursuit of the Buenos Aires’ igaming licenses. In total, 15 entities will compete for a license.

Chasing one of the seven available licenses Betsson has partnered Casino de Victoria, a land-based venue located in the central province of Entre Ríos.

888 has decided to pair up with Boldt, an operator active in the land-based casino and lottery sectors. Sisal, meanwhile, has formed a consortium with two local businesses, Areltown and El Chalero.

The trio joins a host of other international operators in the licensing process. It includes The Stars Group, which has entered into a partnership with Atlantica de Juegos, William Hill, who cooperates with ArgenBingo, Flutter Entertainment in conjunction with Bingo Pilar, Intralot with BinBaires and Playtech with Hotel Casino Tandil.

Bet365, which has recently also entered the Mexican igaming market, will work with bingo operator Pasteko, Betway has partnered Bingo King and Codere has struck a deal with slot and bingo hall operator Iberargen.

Most domestic brands have found an international partner with the exception of Biyemas and Slots Machines, which will both try to secure a license alone.

The seven iGaming licenses will each last 15 years. The licensees will need to pay a $1.5 million license fee and a 25% tax on gross gaming revenue.
