Spain’s Ministry of Finance said Tuesday that the country’s new online gaming regulatory regime will come into force on June 1st.

The Ministry said that the General Directorate of Gaming will publish relevant resolutions on its website and communicate licence approval to applicants on June 1st, with the country’s sanctions regime against unlicensed operators also coming into force on that date.

Regulation of the Spanish online gaming market was scheduled to come into force on January 1st but was postponed in late December by the government for a period of up to six months ending June 30th.
