Portuguese Casino Association Supports Licensing of Existing Concession Holders

The Portuguese Casino Association is in favor of the progress related to online gambling licensing and regulation but only if it involves the licensing of existing [land] concession holders.

On Thursday, Jorge Armindo, president of the PCA, said to the Lusa News Agency, “It is good that online gambling is getting regulated and becomes a legal form of gambling [although] the means chosen may not have been the most appropriate.

“Our position has always rested on the right of concession holders to exclusivity in online gaming, indeed, in alignment with the concession that was attributed to us in 2001 and for which we paid many millions of euros at the time.”

The government has a different view which supports “...an open regime, by licensing, without any concession of exclusivity.”
