Here you will find information about the most important Online Gambling Licensing jurisdictions. We focus on jurisdictions that have been approved by the UK Gambling Commission and comply with their strict standards. The gambling sites featured on gamblingkingz.co.uk are primarily licensed in these jurisdictions.
Licensing authorities are concerned with issuing licenses to companies operating online gambling sites, and also regulating their ongoing activities. Some countries like the United Kingdom have very well defined and strict regulations and impose heavy penalties for companies that do not adhere to their regulations.
Outside of the United Kingdom, licensing requirements and regulatory practices vary greatly, which is why the United Kingdom have white listed only a small number of "off shore" licensing authorities. There are numerous efforts by online gambling operators and software developers to self- regulate, and we profile the key organisations in this field.
Some licensing authorities require nothing but a payment to issue the license, which is an unfortunate reality. We will only feature those jurisdictions where we believe players are protected, and where there is recourse.
Although players need not be concerned with the ins and outs of licensing and regulation, it pays to have a basic understanding of this important aspect of the industry.
