In order to prevent unlicensed online gambling operators from accessing the market, Mexican government authorities have apparently decided to join forces with local banking executives.
What they are considering at the moment is an array of financial measures that would disrupt financial transactions with unlicensed operators by preventing the use of unauthorized credit and debit card transactions.
It has been stated by the interior Ministry that the need to investigate preventative measures targeted on unlicensed online gambling operators accessing the market is of crucial importance.
The Mexican authorities allowed land casino operators licensed in Mexico to offer online gambling back in 2004. Since then, several partnerships have been closed between major land companies and online firms like Probability plc and Playtech plc.
