On 15 March 2013, the Central Bank of Argentina (according to resolution 5404) restricted the use of credit and debit cards for bets abroad. The restriction applies to all funds that are used in direct or indirect form and through the international network of gaming and gambling activities. According to the Central Bank, the measure was implemented to avoid the indirect acquisition of foreign currencies (mainly dollars) through gambling and gaming activities.
