B2B gambling licenses
Each gambling regulatory authority requires that the games and game software used by the licensed company on the site meet the standards for a random number generator.
This software must be certified or purchased from a gaming provider with certification. A gaming software provider license allows you to provide your games to a very wide range of counterparties.
The B2B (Business to business) license allows you to provide your gaming software to licensed companies. These licenses confirm that the company’s software meets all the requirements and high standards of the regulator and constitutes a clear advantage compared to vendors who do not have a license.
We would like to point out that not all developers need to obtain a gaming license. Basically, this requirement is optional and is optional, in order to gain a market advantage for their gaming products.
With a developer license, your customers do not need to certify your games or prove their integrity.
It should be noted that having a license it will be easier for you to find a common language with banks and payment institutions – after all, your activities within the license will become much clearer and less risky.
The B2B licenses are much easier and faster to obtain than full gambling licenses. There are a number of popular jurisdictions in which to obtain a developer license: Curacao, Romania, Malta, Belgium, Gibraltar, Alderney, Isle of Man, and the United Kingdom.
This list includes the most popular gambling licenses for game software developers. Almost every country where gambling is not prohibited by law has its own type of B2B gaming license. The advantage of such licenses is the fact that you can get a number of licenses from several countries for the same European company.
