Dirección General de Ordenación del Juego (DGOJ), Spain’s gambling regulator, is launching a new licensing tender for online operators in the country, marking the third window for applications since the state online gaming market was regulated in 2011.

The DGOJ said it welcomes applications from "entities interested in offering games via electronic, telematic or interactive channels" in Spain. The window for applications will be open for a year, and comes at a boom time for online gaming in Spain.

“The proper functioning of the regulated online gaming market is fundamental to ensure that gaming activity is sustainable and compatible with social welfare, making it possible to channel it into an adequate legal framework and with all the guarantees that regulation establishes for consumers,” the DCOJ said in a statement.
