Popular Locations of Online Casinos
Online casinos may be expected to be located in the heart of gambling territory but laws and tax issues make this not a possibility. Some creative logistics operations have enabled online casinos to base their servers in the countries that allow the operating of online casinos, while continuing to provide customer support and management from other more central locations.
The countries that provide a home for these ‘banished’ online casinos include the Caribbean Islands. Many online casinos have a license from the Caribbean paradise island of Antigua. This island was one of the first to offer online casino licenses and its is rumoured that Antigua is the online casinos answer to Las Vegas. Gibraltar is also a popular location for online casino headquarters. As part of the English territory, Gibraltar is considered one of the more prestigious places for online casinos to have a license. If you have your online casinos license in Gibraltar, it means you have money to spend on a serious licence.
Other alternative places to headquarter online casinos include the Australian territory, under the strict supervision of the Australian government. Costa Rica, Netherlands Antilles and Canada (Kahnawake Territory) are also places which allow the running of online casinos. With the introduction of a new set of gambling laws, it is also expected that the United Kingdom will allow the operating of online casinos from within its borders very soon.
