Since March 1, 2004, Curacao (situated in the southern Caribbean Sea, autonomous country within Kingdom of the Netherlands) may grant regular licenses for interactive game in accordance with the "National Ordinance Offshore Games of Hazard" which literally means “national decree for the regulation of gambling games”.

Until October 1, 2010, Curacao was one of the territories of the Netherlands Antilles which ceased to exist as a territorial unity.

There are two ways for obtaining a license for Sportsbooks (websites where bets are made on every kind of sport) and online casinos:

  • a) apply for a gaming license released by the government. In this case, the request must be filed with the Department of Justice. The licensees pay a fee of 10,000 (ANG) per month for the first two years. After these first two years, a new license fee can be fixed.
  • b) obtain a sub-license for gambling games’ management from the Netherlands Antilles.

This means that a number of companies can divide their activities and then let their current licenses be used by gambling associate companies. subsidiaries

There are several parts willing to grant a sub-license under their own government authorization. The cost of a sub-license varies between USD 2,000 and USD 4,000.

Both modalities require that the company is registered in Curacao and has a local administrator.

The island territory where the owner of a license lives has the right to ask him a contribution of up to 2% of net profits from the interactive gambling.

Cyberluck is also the only authorized distributor of the Caribbean CyberGuard intrusion hardware , and offers discounts on Dell, Compaq, IBM and Hewlett Packard hardware.
