Where can a Curacao gambling license be used?

If you are thinking of getting a Curacao Gambling License, you will better understand how and where a curacao gambling license can be used once you understand the seven types of gambling jurisdictions which are seen across the world.

  1. Jurisdictions which allow no form of online gambling for example China, Turkey, UAE, Brunei, Cambodia, North Korea, Japan, Singapore, Quatar, Lebanon, Poland (Note, this list may not be accurate and is provided as a reference).
  2. Jurisdictions which allow only licensing for online gambling operators but do not allow them to provide services within the country and does not allow any foreign license holders also to operate.
  3. Jurisdictions which allow only licensing for online gambling operators but do not allow them to provide services within the country, but they impose no restriction on any foreign license holders to operate. (ex. Costa Rica).
  4. Jurisdictions which have no laws on online gambling (ex. India).
  5. Jurisdictions which allow online gambling only through operators registered in the same country or state (ex. Some states in the USA).
  6. Jurisdictions which allow online gambling by its residents through licensed operators from selected countries but have no domestic laws (ex. Most EU Countries which allow EU licensed operators to accept customers from their countries).
  7. Jurisdictions which allow online gambling by its residents through licensed operators from the home country and selected other countries (ex. Most EU Countries which allow EU licensed operators to accept customers from their countries).

Now, no online gambling operations are possible with a Curacao license in the first two categories of countries (1,2) and countries which fall under Category 5.

So, with a Curacao license, operations will be possible in countries which fall under Category 3 and a few countries under Category 4, 6 and 7. This also means that for the other countries under Category 4, 6 and 7 you will have to acquire specialised licenses.

To Qualify the above

The Curacao license strictly forbids the following countries Aruba, Bonaire, Curacao, France, The Netherlands, Saba, Statia, St. Maarten, Singapore, USA.

All other countries are fair game.

Advertising may be limited

Your operation will be limited by its ability to legally advertise in some jurisdictions without a local license. For instance, Australia is not forbidden by the Curacao license, however, you will not be able to take out a centerfold advertisement in their local newspapers without Bruce, understandably, getting upset.

Payments may be limited

In addition to advertising restrictions, your operation will be limited by its ability to accept payments in some jurisdictions. Payment service providers will often block card payments from jurisdictions where you need a local license.

Cryptocurrencies are a curve ball

Bitcoins and other Altcoins changes the above somewhat in that, there is no way for regulators to regulate its use and in some jurisdictions they are not considered a “currency”. In these instances, you would be able to offer your service to anyone able to pay with cryptocurrency so long as you do not actively target the forbidden countries as stipulated by the Curacao government.

Malta Controlled Skill Game regulation

As of the 24th January 2017 the Malta Controlled Skill Game regulation has been in force. The MGA has been entrusted with the governance and regulation over the skill games sector which is covered in the Lotteries and Other Games ACT, article 78.

The MGA is empowered to regulate the sector in terms of a number of public policy objectives including consumer protection, fairness of the game and the prevention of fraud.

The purpose of the Controlled Skill Game regulations is to address a range of games which vary substantially from typical games of chance with the aim of differentiating between games that require state intervention and those that do not.

The MGA is empowered to issue a “Controlled Skill Game” license which is valid for 5 years (and renewable there after). The license additionally covers Controlled Skill Game Suppliers who offer games on a B2B basis. The license is subjected to a number of requirements including vetting of the persons behind the business, financial system auditing to ensure the system is sound and secure, measures are in place to prevent fraud and money laundering, segregation of player funds and a consumer centric approach to the business.

What fees apply to Controlled Skill Games?

License holders are subjected to administrative fees and a 5% tax over gaming revenue.

What games fall under the Controlled Skill Games license?

Games which are based on a random number generator at the start of the game, such as cards or dice, but which rely on skill as the game progresses, such as is in the case of games such as belote, tarot, rummy or backgammon, should be licensed, but in such a way as to be deemed different to gambling.

How do I know my game is a game of skill?

Regulation 3 of the regulation deals with classification of a game and criteria covers:

  • the presence of random draws and their effect on the outcome;
  • whether the game is played for money and, or prizes with a monetary value;
  • whether participation in a game involves any form of monetary commitment, or commitment of a monetary value
  • the possibility of any negative social impact of the game;
  • whether the activity is closely associated with games of chance and/or gambling;
  • the duration of each event, competition or match;
  • whether, on the face of it, a skilled player is able to win more than an unskilled player;
  • whether a player’s chance of winning is significantly increased by experience in playing the game
  • whether skill can be acquired through training, experience, reading literature or other educational material;
  • whether a rule-set or format that is used further nullifies the effect of any element of chance;
  • whether the game is played against other human players, or otherwise;
  • the level of interaction between the players, the level of interaction between the operator and the players, and the level of intervention by the operator during the event, competition or match; and
  • the complexity of the game, including the amount of player choices and their potential effect on the outcome, and the strategies involved.

Provided that when the Authority determines, basing itself on any one or more of the above criteria, that an activity is more akin to a game of chance or a game of chance and skill than to a skill game as intended by the Act and any regulations made thereunder, then such an activity shall not fall within the
parameters of this Schedule

Fantasy sports, for instance, will now fall under a Controlled Skills Game license

I have a gambling license, do I need a Controlled Skill Game license as well?

According to the paper titled Digital Games of Skill with Prize (December 2015) it is not worth getting a classification for your skilled games.

An operator offering both traditional games of chance via the internet, as well as games of mixed chance and skill, such as board games, would rather have such games regulated under their gambling licence, as the burden and
expense of proving that such games are more skill-based is not worth the recategorisation.

GamblingTec.com can power your games of skill

While regulations in most jurisdictions are still green, a time will come when games of skill will need to be regulated. In cases where they do, you are free to ingerate your games into the GamblingTec.com platform which operates off a gambling license.
