Popularity

The island nation of Curaçao became one of the first to offer online gaming licences in 1993, a year before its Caribbean cousin Antigua. Soon after, in 1996, Curaçao eGaming was formed to supervise the integrity of the country's e-Gaming licensees. Curaçao eGaming was decentralised from the offline regulator Curaçao Gaming Control Board in 2002, and now offers one licence covering all gambling types. The licence is split into two parts: Master Licence – grants businesses the right to run an online gaming company, as well as the option to offer sub-licences to other parties. Sub-Licence - grants businesses the right to run an online gaming company only. The licence allows companies to run: Online slots and scratch cards Online table games and poker rooms Live broadcast casino games Online sports betting This lack of market restrictions and low entry barriers are attractive to new companies as they allow them to start business without much red tape, offering personal dedicated servers and private cloud servers. This has had a detrimental effect on players choosing to bet with companies based in Curaçao, as their wagers were not as protected as they would be were the online casino based in a country with a more reputable licensing system and regulatory body. If the new constituent state can distance itself from its shady past by bringing in firmer regulation to protect players, while offering the same tax incentives and systems to attract new clients, Curaçao could yet become a central online gaming hub within the Caribbean. The first steps towards this goal have already been taken, with the Curaçao Gaming Control Board creating new regulation in 2014 to manage bookmakers. Magical Spin Casino is licensed by Curacao eGaming. The online casino I am talking about is Bet Monsters Casino  and it holds Curacao eGaming license , which is one of the most famous whitelisted jurisdictions. This casino is designed in such a way that it provides a unique gaming experience to everyone who choose to play there.

History as a Licensing Agent

Despite its less than stellar reputation, there is no denying that Curaçao has a wealth of experience: this Caribbean island has been giving out online gaming licences for almost two decades.
