Legal System of Online Gambling and Betting

The Portuguese Government recently approved the Legal Regime of Online Gambling and Roles (RJO), through Decree-Law No. 66/2015, of April 29

All the regulations contained in the RJO, as well as all the legal solutions and the principles contained therein, from the requirements required to obtain a license, to the obligations and duties imposed on the exploring entities, as well as the criminalization of the activity of illegal exploitation of games and online bets reflect a set of values that the Portuguese State intends to preserve and guarantee when it first regulates online gambling in Portugal.
