In 2015, with the adoption of an applicable law, the doors to the world of online betting, in all its diversity, were opened to gamblers from this country.
Locals finally had the opportunity to place bets on international betting sites that had obtained licenses in Portugal.
However, the tax burden on foreign bookmaker companies that obtained local licenses has forced them to increase their margins, leading to a gradual outflow of customers.

Quite naturally, they are finding more acceptable sites for low-margin betting, which are certainly not with Portuguese Bookmakers.
