Why do online casinos need licenses and do they matter?

In most countries to set up| an online gambling operation, the operator needs to hold a license. Before the year 2000 there have been some online gambling companies operating without a license because some countries just didn’t feel the need to create regulations. However, over time, having a gaming license was key to gaining the trust of players. Now the online gaming industry is heavily reg|ulated and that is great news for everyone including casino players. Gaming licenses aim to protect the players by ensuring that gambling companies offer fair games and also pay taxes.


As of 2013, there have been many countries that have setup their own licensing and regulations including France, United Kingdom, Spain, Mexico, Canada, United States of America, Germany and many more. Players can expect that in 2014 and beyond that most countries will have setup their own licensing to protect players in their country and ensure the games are tested for fairness.
