The internet gaming and gambling industry has a global audience. Since there’s no single piece of legislation that covers the legality of online gambling for the entire world, there are complexities to the subject that are entangled with a variety of issues. Most countries have their own laws that deal with the relevant legal and regulatory issues of gaming. These laws can vary drastically from one region to the next, never mind across international borders. This means that what’s legal and what’s not depends entirely on where you live. Even more complicated, many regions make regular and often seasonal changes to their legislation as well.
Keeping up with all the legal and regulatory developments within the industry, and in this section of our website can be daunting, but at Boyce Associates we have a dedicated team of researchers that keep on top of small and large changes in the industry. We provide current and relevant information about the online gambling laws in many different countries and regions around the world. We also provide details on all of the major online gambling jurisdictions and the licensing authorities which regulate the online gambling industry.
What is an Online Gambling Jurisdiction/Licensing Jurisdiction?
There are certain regions in the world, that are known as online gambling jurisdictions or licensing jurisdictions, that have specific legislation involving the industry of online gaming. This allows them to license and regulate companies that operate online gambling sites or provide industry services. Within these jurisdictions, there’s usually an organization that’s responsible for issuing licenses and regulating the licensees. These organizations are known as licensing authorities.
