A legitimate business running an online casino begins by acquiring an online gambling license. A license is essential because it allows one to run a legal casino and warrants the owner to be trustworthy and committed to the policy of fair gaming. It is also a measure of transparency with respect to business operations and also the security of the gaming software that is offered to the online clients.

Different countries have different gambling legislation. There are a good number of jurisdictions that issue gambling licenses to online casinos. Here are some of them.
