Curacao offers e-gaming licenses to companies based within its own jurisdiction and the small island is considered one of the best jurisdictions for e-gaming licenses.
One of the advantages of Curacao e-gaming licenses stems from the fact that the island was once part of the Dutch Antilles and they maintain unique status as an autonomous Dutch territory – you get the benefits of the EU without the high taxes of Europe.
Regulation of land-based gaming and e-gaming falls under the Curacao Gaming Control Board that is responsible for issuing e-gaming licenses.

Which countries can Curacao license work with?
Basically a gaming license only gives you permission to operate in the country where the license was issued. This is logical as one country can’t dictate to another country which licenses to accept. The Curaçao license is one such licensing jurisdiction.

GBO is a market-leading Curacao Gaming license services provider
As a licensing jurisdiction, Curacao can only issue online gambling licenses to companies within its own jurisdiction. In Curaçao one gambling license covers all forms of online gaming so you don’t need to apply for multiple licenses for each game you offer online. One Curaçao license also covers online gaming service providers including software providers, affiliates, platform operators etc.
The Curacao e-gaming license does not specify from which countries your online e-gaming operation can accept customers. With a Curacao online gambling license, you can accept players from all countries so long as they are not specifically prohibited by your sublicense agreement or by the Curacao jurisdiction which has issued the license.
In which countries is online gambling legal?
Unless there are specific laws against online gambling, it is possible to engage in e-gaming from the majority of the 200+ countries in the world.
The prohibitions on Curaçao gambling license countries’ external jurisdictions take four main forms.
In the first place, there are countries that totally ban online gambling for their own citizens, regardless of where the e-gaming operation is based. These include the United Arab Emirates, Brunei, Cambodia, North Korea, Japan, Singapore, Cyprus, and Qatar.
Many other countries prohibit access from their own country to foreign online gaming sites, mainly to protect their own local gaming operators. These include Georgia, Sri Lanka, Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Croatia, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Italy, Poland, Romania, Spain, UK, USA and Panama.
In some of them, there are prohibitions inside their own jurisdictions, so that citizens cannot engage with local operators. This group includes Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Latvia, Lithuania, Macedonia, Moldova, Monaco, Norway ,Montenegro, Portugal, San Marino, Slovenia, Sweden, Switzerland, Canada, Dominica, and Dominican Republic. However, there is nothing prohibiting them from engaging with a Curacao-based online gaming operator.
Finally, Curacao prohibits access for its own citizens, and there are some specific countries that have treaties with Curacao that include restrictions prohibiting online gambling. These include the USA, the Netherlands, France, Dutch West Indies, and Australia.
It is the duty and responsibility of the license holder to check that customers are not accessing the Curacao gaming operation from prohibited jurisdictions. Regular checks are made by the Curacao Gaming Control Board as a part of the AFL/CFT supervision of all gaming sectors operating in and from Curacao, which includes the online gaming sector.
Which countries regulates Curacao gaming companies?
In 2018, the government of Curacao allocated to the Curacao Gaming Control Board (GCB) the regulation of the online gaming sector. The GCB is now the AML/CFT supervisor for all gaming sectors including online gambling.
Is it legal to operate a Curacao gaming company without a license?
The Curacao government issues a single license for any type of gambling service. Operating from within Curacao without a valid license is illegal.
Is online gambling legal in Curacao?
It is illegal for citizens of Curacao to gamble online. There are several land-based casinos on the island, and the only restrictions there are age-based, to prevent people under the age of 21 from gambling. As well, the Curacao Gaming Control Board operates as the AML/CFT supervisor for all gaming sectors operating in and from Curacao, which includes the online gaming sector. Part of this role is to maintain black-lists of prohibited operators and players.
