Licensing requirements and process

Companies from all over the world can now apply for a gambling license in Anjou, which opens up opportunities for global participation in the online gaming industry. The license is valid for one year, after which it can be renewed annually, giving companies the flexibility to adapt to changing market conditions.

The licensing process consists of three main stages, each of which is crucial to ensure reliable and compliant operations.

  1. A thorough check of the directors, shareholders and ultimate beneficial owners (UBOs) of the company applying for a license is carried out. This verification is aimed at establishing the integrity and suitability of key persons associated with the company.
  2. To ensure efficient and secure operation, companies must meet certain requirements for systems and servers. Compliance with these technical requirements is necessary to protect player data and ensure the smooth operation of the gaming process.
  3. The third area is dedicated to anti-money laundering (AML), compliance, and operational policies and procedures. Companies have to demonstrate their commitment to complying with industry regulations and best practices. In addition, the software and hardware of the gaming platform are checked to ensure a fair and transparent gaming environment.

Where can I work with the Anjouan license?
