Jurisdiction: Curacao

The Curacao license is one of the most popular because of its low cost and relative ease of obtaining it. The license is issued in the form of a sublicense from the current master licensors in Curacao: Cyberluck Curacao N.V. (Curacao-eGaming) #1668/JA, Gaming Curacao (GC) #365/JAZ, Curacao Interactive Licensing N.V. (CIL) #5536/JAZ, Antillephone NV #8048/JAZ The Curacao license is universal and is not divided into types. It is suitable for all types of online gambling and makes it possible to operate in the segment of technology providers (B2B) and operators (B2C). The Curacao Gambling License allows you to work all over the world, taking into account the peculiarities of gambling activity regulation in each individual jurisdiction. The territories expressly prohibited by the license include the Netherlands, Curacao, the USA and France. To obtain a license, it is necessary to register a company in Curacao and pass the relevant compliance procedures. An additional advantage of operating through a Curacao license is preferential taxation of profits from the gambling business.

For Startups targeting emerging and unregulated markets

Jurisdiction: Malta

The Maltese license has a high reputation among both players and business partners. This type of license, apart from other advantages, will be an important reputation indicator for your business. The license in Malta is issued by the Malta Gaming Regulatory Commission, which is also empowered to further oversee the activities of licensed companies. Malta law provides for two types of licenses: for platform/game providers (B2B license) and for operators (B2C license). Each license is divided into four types depending on the type of games it regulates:

Obtaining a license in Malta is a rather complicated process. In addition, companies that have received a Maltese license are required to comply with fairly strict licensing requirements of the regulator during their activities. Malta is a fully open market for Maltese license holders. The availability of other jurisdictions for work is determined in accordance with applicable regulation. The undoubted advantages of obtaining a Maltese license are a relatively optimal tax regime and a developed iGaming infrastructure on the island.

For Experienced gambling business targeting regulated markets

Jurisdiction: Isle Of Man

The Isle of Man license has a high reputation in the market. The Isle of Man Gambling Supervision Commission is the authority responsible for issuing licenses and further monitoring the activities of licensed companies on the Isle of Man. There are different types of licenses on the Isle of Man depending on the type of business:

To obtain this license, you must create a local company and go through the compliance procedure. The license does not have any prohibited territories. All territories are at the discretion of the risk management directors and beneficiaries. The Isle of Man has fairly liberal legislation, a well-developed gambling infrastructure and support for the gambling business by government agencies. In addition, having a license in this jurisdiction can significantly simplify the process of obtaining licenses in other respectable gambling jurisdictions.

For Both startups and developed gambling projects

Jurisdiction: Great Britain

The UK license is one of the most respected in the world, and the gambling market in the UK is one of the most developed. British legislation provides for various types of licenses for online business (casino, sports betting, bingo, lotteries, slot machines), as well as personal management licenses (PML). The procedure for obtaining a license in the UK is considered quite complex and expensive, and business compliance requirements are among the most stringent. The UK Gambling Commission (UKGC) is the body that regulates the issuance of licenses and further control of licensees. Important aspects of the UKGC study are the history of the applicant and his ability to conduct gambling activities in accordance with the requirements of the law. The commission examines in detail the beneficiaries, business and financial plans, the applicant’s work policies, management structures and competencies of key personnel. However, those companies that have received a license in the UK enjoy almost absolute trust of financial institutions, business partners and players. The Commission may revoke a license if it detects non-compliance with compliance rules when operating under a license in the UK. In addition to the benefits that access to a regulated market provides, the UK license is one of the most trusted by business partners and players.
