In this page you can find a list of authoritative jurisdictions that release licenses for gambling, both online and offline. It’s a very ticklish topic, but it’s worth knowing it perfectly if you want to play in an environment where the game is honest and fair and the player is likewise protected in case of a potential dispute. This is very important also because every country are being equipped themselves with its own laws concerning bets and online gaming, so what is valid in a State might not be valid as you cross the border.

The online casino licenses

But what is a game license? The concept is the same as the one that it’s commonly applied to any type of license. Virtually, who possesses it has obtained, by a specific organization, the qualification for offering a certain type of service. There are some countries in the world who have become real authorities in this field, jurisdictions with organisms and instruments that can determine if a betting site has all that it takes to operate on the market.

On the above list, there are the most famous jurisdictions, those whose trademark is a byword for warranty and absolute safety for the player. Some jurisdictions became particularly famous in the last years, not least the Alderney’s jurisdiction, because of the well-known facts that involved the Full Tilt Poker poker room during 2011.
