ITALY gambling license

Who manages e-gambling in Italy?

The  Amministrazione Autonoma dei Monopoli di Stato holds the authority to issue and manage public tender, award licenses and regulate relative operations. They ensure that operations utilizing gambling licenses are constantly supervised.

Overview:

The gradual liberalisation of Italy’s online gambling market began in 2006, following an investigation by the European Commission. The Commission then started infringement proceedings against Italy due to their stringent legislation prohibiting even legitimate European gambling operators from offering their online services within the country

Italy amended its gambling law shortly after.

When the new law came into power, foreign gambling operators have been able to launch online real-money games. Before offering their services to Italian citizens, they were obligated to get an Italian license. AAMS (Amministrazione Autonoma dei Monopoli di Stato – Autonomous Administration of State Monopolies) is the Italian gaming authority that issues licenses. The licenses cover:

  • skill games
  • tournament and solitaire poker games
  • cash poker games
  • casino games
  • fixed-odds and totalisator sports, horse and other events betting
  • horse pools
  • bingo

Italy Gambling License fee:

€200,000

Italy Gambling License Length:

Gambling license lengths vary depending on the relevant product. This is usually defined in the calls of tender. In January of 2018, the last tender for online gambling was launched for the award of four year period licenses. Thus expiring in 2022.
