Pragmatic Play Now Licensed to Operate in Argentina
- December 13, 2021 By Riley Wilson -
In early December 2021, casino software developer Pragmatic Play broke the news that they’ve been licensed to operate in Argentina. This will bring Pragmatic’s huge portfolio to a new audience of thousands of Argentinian players.
Buenos Aires Slot License
This new license to operate has been issued by Lotería de la Ciudad de Buenos Aires, or LOTBA. Of course, this authority only has jurisdiction over the country’s capital of Buenos Aires. However, it’s an important step towards breaking into a wholly new market. Buenos Aires acts as an autonomous city in Argentina’s system of 23 federal states. However, it’s just one part of Pragmatic Play’s big plans for both Argentina and South America at large.
This new license applies to both online gambling offers and land-based casinos. Specifically, award-winning Pragmatic Play slots such as Gates of Olympus, Sweet Bonanza, and Wolf Gold will become available on physical slot machines across the city. Moreover, top online casinos in Argentina will now be able to feature Pragmatic Play’s portfolio.
Interestingly, the announcement only mentions slots and slot machines. There has so far been no mention of the company’s live casino, virtual sports, or bingo lineup.
Pragmatic Play cited their interest in the LatAm market and the vibrant casino culture of the continent as the driving forces behind the new licensing.
The Scramble for South America
This news is one of the many we’ve heard recently about software providers focusing on LatAm. As one of the fastest-growing gambling markets in the world, South America is becoming increasingly attractive to casino operators.
Pragmatic Play has had more success than most, though. Earlier this year, they picked up the Best Game Producer at the Brazilian iGaming Summit Awards.
The company’s Vice President of Latin American Operation, Victor Arias, remarked:
“We are delighted with the news that our most exciting slot content has finally gone live in the city of Buenos Aires. Local players will finally be able to get a real taste of what Pragmatic Play’s products provide, allowing us to build on our reputation while providing players with high-quality experiences.”
