An honest and trustworthy gaming business starts with obtaining the correct gambling license. Whether online or offline, it allows running a legal business and warrants the operator’s reliability and commitment to fair gaming. A license is also an indicator of transparency in business operations and security of the gaming software offered to players.
It is impossible to set up a merchant account in a bank without a proper gambling license, and as such the license is considered one of the most important aspects for any gambling business.
