Malta, Gibraltar, Alderney Gaming Commissions and Benefits to Players
There are other licenses that an online casino can obtain, which acts the same way as the UK Gambling Commission.
The Malta Lotteries and Gaming Authority aims to keep games fair, protect minors and prevents money laundering.
The Gibraltar license requires an online casino to go through numerous tests and audits before they are able to get this license.
The Alderney Gambling Control Commission is thought to be the strictest of all gambling licenses and was created to ensure fairness of online gambling operations.
These licenses offer players a type of promise as they show that the online casino is real and legitimate and it has gone through tests and audits to obtain a license from a governing body. A player can then be sure that games are fair and that they will receive payouts. The online casino will also be held accountable for any problems or issues.
An online casino may hold more than one license from a governing body, which can mean extra protection to players. For instance, the casino may have a UK license and a Malta gaming license. This shows that players in the UK are protected as well as other players in Europe, for instance.
