Codere Online, a leading online gaming and sports betting operator in Latin America, has started to operate in Buenos Aires in Argentina.
Codere Online offers its online gaming and sports betting services through www.codere.bet.ar pursuant to an initial five-year licence granted by LOTBA, the gaming regulator of the City of Buenos Aires. Gross gaming revenue generated pursuant to this licence will be subject to a 10 per cent gaming tax payable to LOTBA.
Customers, who must be 18 or older and located in the City of Buenos Aires, will be able to use Codere Online’s online gaming and sports betting services through their computers, tablets or phones.
Bets will be available on numerous sporting events throughout Argentina, where Codere recently increased its market presence through its sponsorship of River Plate football club, as well as on international sporting events.
Moshe Edree, managing director of Codere Online, commented: “Starting operations in the City of Buenos Aires is a critical milestone in our business plan and a complimentary opportunity to Codere Group’s strategy in Argentina, where it entered in 1992 and is currently a well-established operator with 13 bingo halls and a strong brand awareness in the Province of Buenos Aires.
"The adult population of the City of Buenos Aires is nearly 2.4 million, which together with between three and four million commuters, provides us with a sizable opportunity to reach new customers.”
With the addition of the City of Buenos Aires, Codere Online currently operates in six markets, including Spain, Italy, Mexico, Colombia and Panama.
