Cejuego, the entity in charge of the private industry in Spain, seems to agree with the Spanish Government on most points of the regulatory plans to limit the iGaming industry. According to the Minister of Consumer Affairs of Spain Alberto Garzon who discussed the measures with Cejuego, both parts ended up agreeing on “the vast majority of points” raised by the Spanish Government.
Cejuego and online counterpart Jdigital had been present at a meeting with Alberto Garzon, discussing the complexities of governing gambling across Spain’s 17 autonomous communities.
Writing a letter to its members, Cejuego President Alejandro Landaluce maintained that the trade body supported the planned drastic changes to Spain’s federal advertising code governing gambling content.
Cejuego stressed that they share the need for addressing the “existing social alarm through a calm dialogue with the sector based on rigorous studies”. Moreover, Cejuegos asked the minister that the communities approve regulations that give legal security and sustainability to the sector while protecting the most vulnerable.
“It is necessary a Plan for Prevention and Responsible Gambling in collaboration with the Ministry of Education and endorse regulatory measures in the Autonomous Communities in documented reports,” Cejuegos stated.
Garzon underlined that after-hours restriction would be added to the coalition government’s long-awaited Royal Decree on advertising, changing Spain’s federal codes on the marketing of gambling services.Follow us on
