A few days ago, Colijuegos-the Columbian gaming regulator has approved its fifth license to the Spanish operator Codere.
Codere for the new license is willing to pay almost $7m, and for that sum of money they will have a five year contract period and will include casino games online and sports betting, and various face-to-face channels via mobile.
However, Codere in Columbia will operate over its ‘Codere Apuestas’ brand, making larger its current land-based activity. In a period of 33 years, the Spanish gaming operator has been running casinos, game rooms, sports betting and bingo halls.

All of them are domestic operators, but in October GAMING1 became the first international company for online casinos and sportsbook license.
The President of the Colombian gaming regulator Colijuego, Juan B. Perez said: “The regulator expected to award at least two more licenses before the end of the year”.
