Cota Montaño Named Mexican Gaming Chief

In December, Leonel Cota Montaño was appointed director-general of Juegos y Sorteos, Mexico’s gaming authority, a position he will start in March.

“Juegos y Sorteos issues the necessary permits for the development of gambling and betting events authorized by law and oversees that the relevant terms and conditions are rightfully met,” said Olga Sánchez Cordero, head of the Mexican Secretariat for Home Affairs. “I am sure that Mr. Leonel Cota Montaño is the right person to take over this role due to his wide experience in the field.”
