Curacao Casino License
Curaçao is an island in the southern Caribbean Sea, off the Venezuelan coast and used to be a part of the Netherlands Antilles up to October 10, 2010 when Curaçao gained the status of a constituent country within the Kingdom of the Netherlands. The judiciary is independent of the executive and the legislature. Curaçao has full autonomy on most matters, with the exceptions summed up in the Charter for the Kingdom of the Netherlands under the title “Kingdom affairs”.
One of the first online gambling jurisdictions
Curaçao has long been recognised as one of the preferred iGaming jurisdictions for online gambling operators to base their operations. It’s already since 1996, when it was still part of the Netherlands Antilles, that Curaçao started to regulate online gambling. It’s since then Curaçao has steadily developed into one of the best known and respectful jurisdictions for online casino operators. It was in 2002, when the regulation of internet gaming was separated from the Curaçao Gaming Control Board, online gambling became a central industry for the island. Curaçao provides iGaming Licenses and IP (Information Provider) compliance services to qualified operators. Being one of the first iGaming jurisdictions to regulate online gambling, Curaçao is one of the most stable providers of regulated iGaming services. Currently over 200 iGaming companies operate from this Caribbean jurisdiction which makes online gambling one of the largest industries on the island.
