PlayUZU has received a licence from Buenos Aires city’s gaming authority LOTBA to go live with its online casino offering in the Argentine capital.

Powered by SkillOnNet, PlayUZU is a Spanish-language casino and the sister site of PlayOJO. The brand will position itself as a “fair” casino, PlayUZU offers “money back on every spin, wins from bonuses paid in cash, and no wagering requirements”.

With the licence, and as per regulations, the online casino has partnered with BuenosAiresSlots in order to go live in the region, offering a “truly omnichannel experience” alongside the local land-based operator. 

Helena Rico at PlayUZU stated: “This marks an important milestone for our company, and we are excited to expand our business into a new market. We are grateful for the hard work and dedication of our teams, and we are looking forward to providing our services to the people of Buenos Aires.

“BuenosAiresSlots is a recognised and respected name, and we look forward to growing the PlayUZU brand in the region and exploring opportunities together.”

BuenosAiresSlots owns three gaming halls within Buenos Aires and holds exclusive rights to operate slots and bingo in two districts.

Sergio Revilla at BuenosAiresSlots added: “We were cautious when it came to choosing an online partner, but we knew we had found the right one when we started looking at PlayUZU. It’s backed by SkillOnNet, which is one of the biggest online casino software providers globally, whose name is synonymous with quality. 

“They’re also very serious about localisation and providing a gaming experience that’s tailored to Buenos Aires City. We also liked the sense of fun and fairness of the casino, which we knew would be a hit with Porteños, as residents of this city are known.”
