The draft bill will respect the competence of the Autonomous Communities

Spanish Government to prepare a draft bill on Internet gambling

(Spain).- The Spanish Government will present next December -or at the begining of January- to the Autonomous Communities Councils a draft bill on gambling and Internet gambling.


here isn’t any legislation on this respect currently even though some companies are operating in Spain through Internet for many years now.

The presentation of the bill was announced at the Sixth Congress of the Game of Castile and Leon, which was held in Avila, by the General Technical Secretariat of the Ministry of Interior, María de los Angeles Gonzalez Garcia.

As explained by Gonzalez, the draft bill will respect the competence of the Autonomous Communities and will include, among other things, the regulation on advertising and promotion of the gambling industry in order to protect consumers and minors.

Some autonomous regions have already examined how to regulate online gambling.  For example, the Minister of Interior and Justice of Castilla y Leon, Alfonso Fernandez Mañueco, announced a forthcoming regulation for standard procedures for tickets raffle via phone, TV or Internet. This measure will join the Financial Measures Act 2010 that Castilla is preparing now.
