Antigua & Barbuda gambling licenses

Antigua and Barbuda gambling licenses

Antigua and Barbuda was the first online gambling jurisdictions and regulators way back in 1994 before the online gambling craze hit the world. They are known to have fair rules and regulations and are a well respected jurisdiction.

Antigua and Barbuda gambling licenses

The Antiguan government set out to diversify and increase economic development in the 90s. This was the framework for what would become the island’s remote gaming industry. Antigua enacted a very inclusive regulatory scheme for various companies providing remote gambling services by the late 1990s. Due to a solid reputation, the island experienced dramatic growth in its own gaming industry.

Under Antiguan regulation, two types of gambling and betting licenses are provided: The first is an interactive gaming license, for casino gambling and wagering, and the second is interactive wagering, used for sports betting.

Antigua’s remote gambling operators offer account betting, meaning a player must fund his or her account before wagers can be made. No wager can exceed the amount funded, and wins or losses are credited to a player’s account.

Antigua and Barbuda gambling licenses

Overview:

Antigua and Barbuda have strict license requirements. All licensed operators need to meet a number of requirements before even being considered for approval, and they will be subjected to a thorough vetting process to ensure reputability.

Some of the lesser requirements state that operators strictly enforce age limitations, barring anyone under the age of 18 to participate in the gaming operations or as players. All operators are also required to display a warning on their web site, citing the various addiction possibilities of gambling and subsequent information on sites assisting with compulsive gambling.

Antigua and Barbuda have a web site that offers a way to connect for those seeking a license. They present detailed information about their screening process. In order to secure a license, an up-front, non-refundable fee of $15,000 USD is required for due diligence.

This screening process is very thorough, and if passed, an interactive gaming license costs $100,000 USD. For an interactive wagering license, applicants must pay $75,000, with an additional $5,000 annually for renewal. If you’d wish to have a monitoring system, the fee is $25,000 for one license, $45,000 for two.

All operators must meet Antigua’s high standards of excellence. Anti-fraud and money laundering regulations must be adhered to, as well as a slue of other regulations regarding finance. Antigua is not responsible for changing laws or regulations in any particular area.

Any customer complaints can be filed with the Antiguan Directorate of Offshore Gaming if a remote gaming operator isn’t able to handle the issue. The Directorate will review and investigate the problem if necessary.

 

Licence Fee

$15,000 non-refundable application fee.

Interactive gaming license: £100,000.

Interactive wagering license: $75,000 plus $5,000 annual renewal fee.

Who manages E-Gambling in Belgium?

The Gaming Commission instituted in 1999 and is solely responsible for all gambling licensing in Belgium.

 

Overview:

In January 2011, the new Belgian Gambling Act was enacted. Online games of chance were placed under the supervision of the Gaming Commission. The online licenses (A+, B+, and F1+) allow licensees of the following class licenses to operate games of chance online: Class A (operating casino operations); Class B (operating gaming arcades); and Class F1 (organizing wagers).Under the new Act, only licensed, land-based operators in Belgium may apply for an online license. The operators’ online gaming servers must be located in Belgium and the online games must be the same games offered in land-based operations. This law requires gaming operators to align themselves with an established brick-and-mortar Belgium casino or own one or more themselves. All operators are required to pay a €250,000 guarantee fee. All prior taxes and debts of license applicants must be paid prior to submitting an application. Operators are required to pay an 11 percent tax on all gross gaming revenues. The horse racing tax is 3 percent and pari-mutuel bets on foreign horse races are taxed at 3.7 percent.

The Act also increased the powers of the Gaming Commission, which can now impose fines in case of breach of the Gambling Act. The Act provides criminal penalties and/or administrative sanctions for any person involved in illegal games of chance. This not only applies to the operator who facilitates the illegal games of chance but also to participants.

 

The Blacklist

In order to manage and regulate online casinos, The Gambling Commission compiled a blacklist containing the domains belonging to unlicensed companies which is passed on to Internet service providers. Operators will face fines ranging between €100 to €100,000 should they be found operating illegally. It should also be noted that citizens will be punished with a €26 to €25,000 fine if found playing on a blacklisted site.

The list is regularly updated and as of July 2020, consisted of almost 200 sites.
