Curacao eGaming

The Curacao Gaming Control board is the main jurisdiction that is certified to issue gambling licenses on the Island of Curaçao (Netherlands Antilles). Curacao is amongst the most cost- effective licenses in the iGaming industry, they are also one of the oldest jurisdictions in the world. Curacao eGaming also provides start-up operators with all-in-one packages that are suitable for their needs.

The All-In-One Package

This all-in-one package is one of the most cost-effective solutions when it comes to a package that covers all the needs of a start-up operator. It includes consulting, online gambling licenses, as well as compliance supervision. It’s also possible to add additional services if needed such as:

  • Formation of Curacao and EU Companies
  • Banking Assistance
  • Payment Processing
  • Leased Dedicated Servers
  • Administrative and legal services
  • Back office Support.

It’s quite plain to see why the all-in-one package is the smaller gambling sites first choice when obtaining a license from The Curacao Gaming Control board. Especially the fact that additional services can be added as they are required.

Master Licenses and Sublicense

These are the two licenses that can be obtained:

  • A Master License – This license applies to the e-gaming company itself, and allows the company to be eligible to sub-license 3rd parties about responsibilities and the agreement under the master license. In this case, it applies to casinos and other gambling sites.
  • A Sublicense – The full privileges that are afforded to the Master License holder are also applicable to the Sublicensee. The only difference is that they are not allowed to issue sublicenses of their own.

Curacao is able to issue 4 Master licenses, these are as follows: Cyberluck Curacao N.V. (Curacao- eGaming) #1668/JAZ, Gaming Curacao (GC) #365/JAZ, Curacao Interactive Licensing N.V. (CIL)

#5536/JAZ, Antillephone NV #8048/JAZ.

Gaming Curacao – Master License 365/JAZ

One of the most popular and best licenses since 1998 is the Gaming Curacao (Master license 365/JAZ), which is one of the four master license holders in Curacao. Approved eGaming operators can be licensed by Gaming Curacao, thereby giving them the right to legally run their gaming activities from the Island Territory of Curacao.

The Gaming Curacao license offers 3 main services, the first of these services is to issue licenses to operators.

Providing hosting facilities is the second part of the service. Due to the increased amount of gaming operators that are based in Curacao, the island now provides several eGaming-specific hosting companies that Gaming Curacao can refer new operators to these hosting companies.

The third and final service is Fiduciary services. This service is offered to operators needing assistance in setting up, as well as helping them to make contact with a tax specialist and also establishing all legal duties concerning their online gaming business.
