Licenses

Curacao Gambling license

Curacao Island is located in the south of the Caribbean Sea near the coast of Venezuela. On the 10th October 2010, the island became a self-governing state within the Kingdom of the Netherlands.

Curacao gambling license is well known among online casino companies.

There is no gambling business classification on the island - you simultaneously get a bookmaker license, as well as a license for online casinos, poker, sports betting, lotteries and bingo.

One of the main advantages of the island Curacao is the most simplified and prompt procedure for licensing the gambling business in comparison with other jurisdictions.

There are two types of Curacao licenses – master license and sub-license, both of which are granted to gambling operators and provide the same basic rights for different types of gambling businesses. But still, there is a clear difference between them: by purchasing a master license, the operator can offer sublicenses to other companies, while the holder of the sublicense cannot do this.

Master license: It allows authorizing the activities of third parties through sublicensing, taking into account the responsibilities and conditions prescribed in the master license.

The master license can be obtained on the basis of the decision of the Minister of Justice, the adoption of which is based on the submitted documentation by the Legal Counsel of the Netherlands Antilles. Recently, it has become extremely difficult to obtain a master license in Curacao.

Sublicense: Provides the same rights to organize and conduct online games in accordance with the procedure established by law, but does not give the possibility of providing a sublicense to third parties.

Company registration and submission of documents for obtaining a license.
