How to open an online casino
Everyone has long known that excitement is one of the strongest driving forces of man. What first comes to mind at the mention of this word? Of course, the casino. You can earn a lot on human passion. One of the participants in the ranking of the richest people in the world, Sheldon Adelson, made his fortune (almost 30 billion dollars) at the casino.
Why is casino so popular?
Our human essence is so arranged that in all of us sits the instinct of excitement. Just to someone to a lesser extent, and to someone more. Of all the currently existing modern gambling games, casino games are the most popular. And online casinos are also popular because players do not even need to leave the house – sit at your computer and play.
Most people who have tried to play casino at least once, it becomes interesting to play on. And many are embraced by the strongest excitement and it becomes difficult to manage their emotions and actions. And if a person has won even a small amount, then immediately before the eyes there are possible huge winnings, forcing the player to bet again and again.
As already mentioned, to get a license to open a casino in Russia will not work. If you want to legally conduct your business, then you need to register your business in offshore zones, that is, those states where the casino business is allowed. How the entire registration process will go through, how much money you spend on it, what taxes you will pay, etc., will depend on the state where you register your business. Each state has its own rules and laws, and before choosing one of them, study in detail all the subtleties of their jurisdictions.
Which offshore zones can I register online casinos in?
1. Malta This is one of the most prestigious zones in the gambling business. Experienced and knowledgeable players will be more trusting to the casino, which is registered in this particular jurisdiction, since they know that in this case all the casino activity is completely legal and does not deceive the players. However, for a beginner to open an online casino in Malta, it may be difficult. To obtain a license, you will need to satisfy the legislation in its requirements, and there are quite a few of them. You need to have a real office with staff, pay a high cash deposit, make complex accounting reports, pay taxes. To the servers and software, too, put forward their own requirements.
2. Seychelles. Registering a casino in the Seychelles is much easier, however, its prestige will be almost the same as in the case of Malta. You do not have to pay a deposit and pay taxes. You only need to buy the license itself, which is issued for a period of one year. Since in a year you are unlikely to achieve all the goals in the business, you will have to renew the license, which is also not difficult. If suddenly you want to open a real physical gambling business in the Seychelles, then if you have a license for an online casino, it will be quite easy for you to do this without any taxes and fees.
3. Costa Rica. Another fairly profitable and simple jurisdiction for opening an online casino. Most casino owners, whose home country forbids them to conduct a gambling business on its territory, register online casinos in Costa Rica. Taxes and special requirements for software, servers, the entrepreneur himself are absent. The only difficulty you may encounter is opening a bank account in Costa Rica. It will be quite difficult for foreign citizens to do this, but still real.
Also good offshore zones are Curacao, Canaveyk (Canada), Dominican Republic, Philippines. Having obtained a license for online casinos in these countries, you will be able to run a gambling business on a completely legal basis and not be afraid of the law. Now there are enough organizations that will help you in obtaining such a license – they will tell all the conditions, draw up documentation and register your business with all the necessary services. The server of your casino should be in the same place where you registered your business. That is, you cannot legally use the Russian server for online casinos. You will also need to select the software on the basis of which your casino will operate. Variant two: the user first installs the program from your site to his computer, and then plays through it; or he plays through a special interface right on the site. As practice shows, the second option is more preferable. Many users, even interested in playing in a casino, will simply be lazy to pre-install the program.
Now there are a lot of companies involved in the development of casino software. If you have specialized skills, you can try to develop it yourself. Your site should have a lot of various options for casino games, so that players can choose from.
