What is Curaçao eGaming?
Curaçao eGaming is one of the four authorities in Curaçao tasked with regulating online gambling activities, with issuing licenses to providers and with developing infrastructure systems and cloud servers to support the eGaming industry. They act as the franchise head for gambling services, allowing gaming companies to operate under their license. Affiliated brands can sign up for a turnkey service that includes infrastructure management, game licensing and secure server space, or they can operate autonomously under the Curaçao eGaming license.
Curaçao eGaming Explained
Curaçao is one of the former colonized nations which occupies the Antilles islands in the Caribbean. Gambling services are legal within the country, though they are subject to regulation and required to operate under a license. Under Curaçao gambling laws, the Ministry of Justice issues master licenses to companies which are then compelled to act in a regulatory role, and those companies issue their own licenses to gambling operators who act in their name. Curaçao eGaming is one of the four master gaming license holders in Curaçao, and they are responsible for the management of a number of online gaming services.
The organization supports a wide range of gambling games, including casino table games, online and video poker, live gambling, sports betting and lotteries.
They also provide infrastructure solutions and template casino websites, along with secure server space and cloud solutions. Online gaming services must agree to the terms of Curaçao eGaming in order to receive their license and begin operations, and they are subject to regulation as per the nation’s laws.
While Curaçao has issued eGaming licenses since 1996, it is not generally as well known, certainly to the EU market, as a license from the UK Gambling Commission or Malta Gaming Authority, for example. Curaçao however has always positioned itself as an international front runner in providing financial services and has a very open and successful economy.
