The government of Curaçao is currently in the process of realizing a complete reform and modernization of its (online) gambling legislation through a new law that will be named the Landsverordening op de kansspelen (Lok). In anticipation of the entry into force of the Lok, the Minister of Finance of Curaçao has decided to resume issuing licenses under the current law, the National Ordinance on Offshore Games of Hazard (Landsverordening buitengaatse hazardspelen, P.B. 1993, no. 63) (NOOGH). With this, the Minister of Finance wishes to create a transition framework that will contribute to a smooth transition from the existing to the new law.
In light of the foregoing, this portal is intended for:
- the application for an online gaming license pursuant to the NOOGH by operators that wish to acquire an online gaming license directly from the Curaçao Gaming Control Board (GCB), and
- the registration of operators that are currently offering online gaming in Curaçao on the basis of a contractual agreement with an existing license holder and that wish to acquire a Curacao online gaming license under current or future Curaçao law.
