Gibraltar iGaming Jurisdiction

iGaming Jurisdictions - Gibraltar

All gaming operations in Gibraltar require a licence under the Gambling Act of 2005. It is the job of the Gibraltar Regulatory Authority to ensure all operators act in accordance with their licences.

Gibraltar are said to be at maximum capacity in both bandwidth and space, however the licences they do have are for the top sports books. There are plans underway for expansion and building new Datacentres.

Although gambling is not new to Gibraltar, it has not been untill recently the Government of Gibraltar started issuing licenses to other countries and entities wishing to operate gambling venues. This is a task they consider to be of extreme importance.

Acquiring a licence in Gibraltar is dificult, with only 15 companies successful in acquiring a license between 2005 and 2006, any hopefuls must have an immaculate track record. There are many requirements and conditions applicants must meet to obtain a license successfuly, for example all advertising and promotions must be accurate, should in no way appeal to minors, and be directed at nations which allow online gambling to take place. Every gambling company must also ensure they keep enough funds to pay every particpant should they win and request funds.

All licences issued by Gibraltar will be controlled and managed from within the jurisdiction, and no financial information should be held outside the jurisdiction.

To date little over 20 online gaming sites have their licence with Gibraltar.
