Betsson, through subsidiaries, has been granted an online gaming license in the province of Cordoba in Argentina, which is the third license for the Group in Argentina. The new license, granted to Betsson and its partner Casino de Victoria, is one out of eight licenses that have been awarded by the local regulator Loteria de Cordoba.
