Gaming License in Curaçao

Curaçao has established itself as one of the main promoters and managers of "Gaming Licenses" worldwide, being also one of the most stable countries in granting this type of license. It belongs to the Kingdom of the Netherlands (direct connection with Europe), and at the same time, its privileged presence in the paradisiacal Caribbean makes this island a more than ideal destination to be the place of choice when applying for this license.

This small Caribbean island was one of the first territories to grant gaming licenses, making it one of the oldest and, at the same time, one of the best known. One of the main advantages is that whoever receives this license can use it in physical businesses, such as betting and gaming websites in general. 

Online gaming is a legitimate business activity in Curacao, provided the e-gaming company has obtained the proper licensing (sublicense). The Online Gaming legislation was first created in 1993 when the islands were still the Netherlands Antilles. Undoubtedly, Curacao has thought of this project based on the progress of our times.

It is important for you to know that this license is mandatory. Without it you will not be able to open bank accounts, your business has no legal basis and your options of partners will be extremely limited, if not null.
