Licensed Bookmakers

Online gambling operators have to go through strict regulations. Authorities are responsible for making bookmakers legit by providing them with a valid license. Gaining access to unauthorized websites might be banned, but not always. So it is important to know which operators are licensed. Here is a full list of brands that can legally provide online gambling services.

Who Issues the Bookmakers’ Licenses in Your Country?

Each country has its own authority that issues licenses to the gambling operators. However, obtaining such a permit is not an easy task to do because the procedure is pretty long and might take months.

When a given brand decides to apply for a license, it has to file the needed documents to the regulating authority. The permit can be either for sports bets, for an online casino, or for both. The document is valid for five years after its issued. During that time, companies are obliged to comply with all regulations by the monitoring authority because otherwise, the permit will be revoked.


Why is it Important to Choose a Bookmaker with a License?

Make sure you always opt for websites that have a license from a certain regulating authority. That’s because if there is a dispute between you and the bookmaker, you will be able to seek help from the responsible authorities in your country. Here are the most common types of arguments that can arise while playing:

  • A delay in your payment
  • Blocking your account
  • Restricted access to your profile
  • Revokement of your profits

You probably understand that each of the situations mentioned above will be, to say the least, unpleasant. Choosing a bookie with a license does not guarantee that you won’t encounter these problems, but it will at least allow you to have an authority to go to if that happens. Picking up a legit betting site eliminates the risk of facing up with some of the brands from our blacklist of bookmakers.


Advantages of Bookmakers that have a License from Your Country

We’d like to point out some of the main advantages of bookies that operate legally. We will begin by saying that getting a license is something that has high costs. In a way, this is a guarantee that the company is wealthy and it’s unlikely that it will suddenly disappear and scam its customers.

On the other hand, when the activity of a given bookmaker is regulated, this guarantees that it will comply with all legal obligations. Be sure that these bookmakers are required to take precautionary safety measures to protect the personal information of their customers.

Banking needs to be monitored as well. Payment security is another priority for the operators that have a license. The responsible authorities are aware of the financial transactions that take place on these websites.


Will there be more Licensed Bookmakers in My Country?

There are many big names in the industry that are not yet available in all countries. The overall trend is that leading bookies aim to acquire licenses in as many jurisdictions as possible. However, only time will tell if international betting sites will completely dominate the local markets as well.

If, however, more local operator spring up, this will definitely make the iGaming industry more competitive, which means that players will get better deals.
