About Licensed Online Casinos

A licensed online casino is a gambling portal that is legally permitted to offer gambling services where real cash wagers are involved. There are various licensing jurisdictions around the world that provide licenses to these casinos and this is generally where that casino usually operates from. Some of these licensing jurisdictions are actually known to impose tougher controls and regulations over their licensees, which often makes the online casino more trustworthy.

Some of the toughest licensing jurisdictions in the world where many of the most secure gambling portals are licensed include the Chanel Island of Alderney (The Alderney Gambling Control Commission), as well as Gibraltar and the Isle of Man.

The mid-tier level of jurisdictions that also impose tough controls, but not as tough as the ones just mentioned include Antigua, the Netherlands Antilles (The Curaçao Internet Gaming Association), Malta and The Kahnawake Gaming Commission (located in the Canadian Mohawk Territory). Some of the most trusted and respected online casinos operate from these particular jurisdictions.

At the bottom end of the scale, where most rogue online casinos (but also a decent amount of trusted online casinos) operate from include Panama and Costa Rica. Many of the scam operations have been uncovered operating from one of these two jurisdictions. This doesn’t mean to say that none of the hundreds of portals can be trusted, but you should definitely be wary of a growing number of rogue online casinos that do base their operations from here.

The best way to learn more about an online casino is to continuing reading as many player reviews as possible for each casino you may be slightly dubious about. Some online casinos can appear secure on the outside, but you could encounter a number of different issues when actually signing up to them and spending your money with them. When trying to resolve an issue, you may not get the legal back-up or player protection that you are entitled to.

Whatever you do, make sure that you only ever sign up to a licensed online casino. Never open a real cash account or give your personal details to an online casino that doesn’t hold a license from one of these jurisdictions. The best advice for players is to double check with the jurisdiction that hands out the licenses. You can then view a complete list of their licensees. This will tell you if the casino that claims to be licensed there is in fact licensed there or not.
