Today has been published in the Spanish Official Gazette the resolution launching the call for tender for obtaining new general licenses for exploiting gambling activities in Spain.

This means that within the next 30 working days, interested parties can apply for obtaining new general licenses. Consequently, the deadline for submitting the corresponding applications will be December 9, 2014 at 13.00 CET.

Moreover, the ministerial orders regulating slots and exchange betting have also entered into force by means of this publication and therefore, the applications can from now on be filed. It is important to highlight that the application of singular licenses is no subject to any time restrictions, meaning that licensed operators/applicants can submit singular licenses applications at any time from tomorrow.
