Spain to Launch Public Consultation on Draft Royal Decree that Proposes New Player Protection Rules

Reading Time: < 1 minute


Spain’s Ministry of Consumer Affairs is going to launch a public consultation on a draft Royal Decree that proposes new player protection rules for the online gaming market.

Minister Alberto Garzón said the rules would make the country’s igaming market safer, particularly for young people. Input on the legislation has been received from Spain’s Responsible Gambling Advisory Council.

Operators would need to collect player data to monitor for at-risk behaviour. They would also need to share more information with customers.

Garzón said the ministry’s vision required “the collaboration of all stakeholders.”
