will issue online gambling licenses
Italian government announced that it is ready to
issue over 17,000 gambling licenses. Those licenses will cover
betting stations, kiosks, casinos, online gambling companies -
casinos, sports betting and poker. The licenses will be ready
for delivery after January 1st next year, and come as the next
step after legalizing web gambling in Italy.
Italy is among the first European
countries which have already legalized online gambling, and many
gambling companies are ready to apply for their licenses, among
which - William Hill, Ladbrokes, Coral and many others. Many of
those online gambling sites have lost a significant amount of
revenues after the pulling out of the US market and they are
eager to establish a bigger presence in the E.U. countries which
legally allow online gambling.
Spain is expected to be the
next country to announce when they will start issuing their
online gambling licenses.
