Argentinian sports betting
Betting and gambling in Argentina have a long tradition started in the late 1800s. Nowadays some types of gambling are legal and regulated, and others are prohibited by the law.
Making a comparison with other South American countries, we can say that Argentina has a relaxed feeling with gambling and betting, that are well accepted by the public.
Betting on soccer and other sports (tennis, boxing and volleyball over all) is therefore a popular activity among Argentines and so are the casino’s games. Reputable operators offer their sportbooks in all provinces with different regulations.

Argentina betting regulation
Online betting in Argentina is regulated on a provincial level, some provinces allow wagering and others haven’t yet introduced law regarding sports betting.
Nowadays in Argentina works 24 independent gambling jurisdictions which treat sport betting in different ways. This means that in certain cases customers can only play with local licensed operators, for example. In others, bettors can wager also with international operators.
Until 2018 betting games were managed by National Lottery and so regulated by the state. The situation changed in February 2018 when the National Lottery was disbanded.
The first online licenses were issued in 2002 and first local sportsbook is born in 2006. The government does not taxes the users’ winnings.
One of the last provinces that issued an accurate gambling law is the one of the capital, Buenos Aires. It’s the first time that sport betting, horse races and casinò are included in the 2019 budget.
