For gamblers and casino lovers in Colombia, there’s a good news!
Colombian gaming regulator Coljuegos has now made it easy to find legal gambling venues in Colombia. The national gambling regulator introduced an online map that allows users to identify legal gambling facilities in any city across Colombia.
With the new map gamblers and players can now also get access to all relevant information including name, address, and corporate identification number, along with the expiration date of the license acquired by the venue operator.
Juan Perez Hidalgo, the President of Colombian national gambling regulator Coljuegos, explained that with the new map anyone could get the details only by knowing the location of a venue.
The venues and facilities that can be verified with the map include casinos, bingo halls, betting shops with slot machines, roulette and poker tables, sportsbooks, and other retail outlets dedicated to gambling.
Talking about the idea behind creating this new tool, he said “We are plenty aware that, now-a-days, citizens make use of internet through their mobile phones as wells as GPS navigation systems and numerous multimedia apps that use geolocation. We decided to include this technology so as to contribute to responsible gambling, strategic corporate development and allow Colombians to place bets with licensed operators whose proceeds will finance the nation’s health sector,”
