People from all over the world enjoy gambling on their favourite online casinos and sports betting sites, but unfortunately, it is not always legal. While laws have changed over the years, there are still many countries that punish those who gamble illegally or those who set up online casinos without permission.
In some countries, such as Switzerland betting activities are heavily regulated making it more difficult for gambling sites to operate. When you register to an online casino, you are required to agree to the site’s terms and conditions. Finding out whether or not gambling is legal where you live is your responsibility.
On the other hand, for the countries that permit online casinos to operate, there are usually some strict guidelines, such as abiding by any age limits set on gambling in your locality. It is safe to assume that in every country where online gambling is legal, there will be a set of laws to regulate the market and levy taxes, given by the government.
As standard procedure, you will be required to verify your identity, amongst other things to ensure you are within the requirements of the gambling company.
We encourage players to carry out due diligence of any platform they may want to play with. By all means, you should avoid platforms that don’t openly display their gambling license or fairness certifications that guarantee the legitimacy of the platform.
Stay diligent, bet aware & be safe.
