The resolution has been issued by the Dominican Republic’s Ministry of Finance. The new set of measures will be supervised by the Dirección de Casinos y Juegos de Azar (Directorate of Casinos and Gaming).

Online gambling was initially regulated in 2006, with the first licence issued in 2011. Notably, Amaya was the first to be issued with a licence.

The company is better known as The Stars Group, which it rebranded to in 2017. Amaya was acquired by Flutter Entertainment in 2019.
