Antigua and Barbuda Remote Gaming License
Antigua and Barbuda are two islands that compose a single nation in the Caribbean Sea east of Puerto Rico.
Antigua and Barbuda are two islands that comprise a single nation in the Caribbean Sea east of Puerto Rico. The country has been issuing licenses and regulating online gambling since 1994. It licenses a number of US-friendly gambling sites as well as sites that serve the non-US market. In its early years as a licensing entity, Antigua was generous in awarding licenses to any operator who could meet the minimum standards of approval. Thus, it came to the situation where there are a fairly large number of low-quality gambling sites, which proudly display the seal of approval Antigua and then will run scam operations at the border.
The good news is that Antigua tightened its regulatory standards and become much more discriminating in who is authorized to operate internet gaming organizations. The Antigua and Barbuda licensing authority are now whitelisted by the UK, and its licensees have a much-improved track record for taking care of players. If you see the Antigua seal of approval displayed anywhere on a gambling website, you can click on that seal to go straight to the Antigua Directorate of Offshore Gaming website. There, you’ll see the current status of the license-holder. You can click on that seal any time to see the authenticity of any gambling site’s claim to be licensed.
You deserve the best result!
