Online gambling consultation launched by Columbia

This week Colombia’s gambling regulator, Cojuegos, advised that three proposals had been drafted covering technical and regulatory requirements necessary for online gambling operations. Feedback of the documents has been made accessible to the public by the gambling regulator.

If approved, online gambling operators would be able to offer random number generator (RNG) casino games including roulette, slots, bingo, baccarat, and blackjack, in addition to cash poker games and tournaments. Real and fantasy sports betting would also be authorized by the draft, with parlay, exchange, and fixed-odd wagering all getting the nod. While live in-play betting would be allowed, it appears that online horse betting would be forbidden.
