Casinos accepting players from Belgium
Gambling in Belgium is regulated by the Gambling Commission in accordance to the fairly recent 2011 Belgian Gaming Act. However, online gambling itself has been legal already since 2002. In order to get an online gambling license in this country, offline requirement has to be met first. This simply means that you cannot operate online in such industry unless you are licensed as an offline operator or, at least, are in partnership with one. In addition to that, licensees have to apply for NINE A+, 180 B+ and 34 F+ supplementary licenses that are meant to cover different kinds of services. For example, online casinos operators should apply for the NINE A+ license, which comes with a hefty license deposit and annual fees.
IGaming companies that wish to operate on this land can only offer their services to Belgians unless they want to be fined up to a hundred thousand Euros. After all, Brussels, the capital of the European Union, is just next door.
To make sure that you’re dealing with an operator licensed in Belgium, look for the copy of the license that should be embedded somewhere on their website. For more information please visit www.gamingcommission.fgov.be.
