A subsidiary of Betsson AB has secured online casino and sports betting licences for the Betsson and Betsafe brands in Peru.

In addition, the operator has stated that a licence for its Peruvian-facing sports betting and online casino business – Inkabet – is expected to be obtained soon.

“We have really looked forward to Peru introducing a local regulation and are very pleased with the issuing of these licences,” commented Pontus Lindwall, President and CEO of Betsson AB.

“With this announcement, we affirm our commitment to the local economy and the new regulatory framework in the country.”

Betsson has been present in Peru since 2008, before launching its Betsafe brand in the country in 2019, followed by its acquisition of Inkabet two years later.

Alongside Peru, the operator also holds licences across Colombia and Argentina in Latin America, with licences in the Argentinian regions of Buenos Aires City, Buenos Aires province and Córdoba.

Back in May, Lindwall spoke to CasinoBeats about the impact M&A has had on Betsson’s growth across the globe so far.

Betsson has expanded across Europe recently as well, going live with its flagship brand in Italy back in March.
