The announcement comes at the same time that the Dominican Republic has issued Resolution 136-2024. The resolution, signed into law on 26 March 2024, provides a new regulated framework for online gambling.

The new set of measures will be overseen by the Dirección de Casinos y Juegos de Azar (DCJA). The directorate is managed by the Ministerio de Hacienda (Ministry of Finance). As a result, it is responsible for issuing licences to online casinos and lotteries.

With a new licensing framework in place, operators who do not have a licence will no longer be authorised to operate in the country.
