Argentine province of Misiones launches new online betting platform

The Provincial Institute of Lottery and Casinos (IPLyC) of Misiones, Argentina, officially launched GuazuBet.com.ar, its new online gaming platform. The presentation on yesterday morning was headed by IPLyC president of the Board of Directors, Héctor Rojas Decut, who explained that, although GuazúBet was operating experimentally since July, “only now we arrived at the agencies of the province with the management system fully consolidated.”

To participate, punters must first buy credit at an IPLyC agency, the same place where prizes are paid. The platform can be accessed from any computer or mobile device.

Decut said that in this way “we did not want to leave out our main partners, the Sales Network. For us it is very important to maintain the validity of the Official Agencies, because they are the ones that energize a large part of our economy, providing sources of work and allowing us to be present throughout the province.”

He also stressed the importance of promoting and strengthening the offer of legal gambling. “Currently we are invaded by offers of online websites that, under the .com domain, operate without any State control. They work without guarantees and, above all, without paying taxes, which means that they take our money without leaving anything in the country and province. The online mode is very complex and difficult to control. And that context is used by companies that only seek economic revenue, without considering other variables such as responsible gambling, the prevention of money laundering and the participation of minors,” he emphasized.

Regarding security and control issues for the player, the president of the Misiones IPLyC said that “prevention of gambling is a priority for GuazuBet; so we have incorporated configurable filters of time, deposits, amount of bet and amount of the possible loss, as well as a self-test so that people can observe their behaviors and control them. Users can also exclude themselves from the same platform and we also incorporate a system to prevent access by minors.”

GuazuBet includes more than 230 different games in the formats of jackpot, bingo, roulette, poker, black jack, slots and scratches, with possibilities to play with fictitious or real money.

Also, one of the strengths of the website are sports betting. More than 30 sports options and their respective competitions stand out, from cycling, ping pong, handball, rugby, baseball, volleyball, to the most relevant tennis, Formula 1, basketball and football tournaments around the world. Of course, it also includes betting options on South American football: Argentine Super League, Copa América, Sudamericana and Copa Libertadores, many of them with the possibility of betting before the game or in live mode (during the match).
