Why Choose Anjouan Gambling License?

Anjouan has overtaken Curacao as the most convenient online gambling license for startups in 2023.

Due to regulatory changes and bureaucratic hurdles that created uncertainty in the industry, Curacao’s gambling license barely survived the year. Under these circumstances, entrepreneurs were forced to look for alternatives. Anjouan, with its attractive compliance process, quick application and global coverage, became the preferred license for many gambling businesses, including online casinos and sports betting websites.

1. Regulatory Flexibility: Anjouan offers a flexible regulatory framework that adapts to the evolving world of online gambling. This flexibility allows you to explore innovative gaming concepts and quickly adapt your offering. This is a license for start-ups and fast-emerging companies that want to expand their business worldwide.

2. International Recognition: Anjouan’s gaming license allows you to target a global audience without the obstacles that some other jurisdictions may impose. The list of restricted countries mirrors the list of countries that Curacao also restricts.

This is a list of countries that you must geo-block for your online gambling business: Australia, Austria, Comoros, France, Germany, Netherlands, Spain, United Kingdom, USA, all countries on the FATF blacklist.

If you give any of these countries access to your online casino, your license will be revoked.

3. Cost-effective: The Anjouan gaming license is known for its cost-efficiency. The fees for initial licensing and annual renewal are significantly lower compared to many other countries. For example, even the new license for Curacao after the new law is passed (which will not happen until the mid-end of 2024 or later), including the additional cost of the license, can be as low as EUR 100,000 per year.

The Anjouan license is affordable for any startup serious about opening an international online casino.

The price of the Anjouan gambling license depends on several factors:

  • Your business model and the countries you want to focus on when marketing your business.
  • The size of your business and the number of shareholders.
  • Payment solutions and software providers you want to connect to your website.

We carefully evaluate all important aspects of your business to speed up the licensing process and reduce the cost of your corporate structure and license.

4. Streamlined application process: Anjouan has a straightforward and efficient application process that allows you to enter the online gambling industry with minimal delays.

The licensing process currently takes between two and four weeks (not including setting up the business structure), and it doesn’t get any faster than that. It takes about two months to prepare your business for launch.

5. Privacy and Confidentiality: Entrepreneurs who are concerned about the confidentiality of their business information can contact us to find out how to reduce the risk of disclosing their personal information.

Currently, Anjouan supports B2B and B2C businesses without differentiating between the two. You can run a platform and B2C businesses under one license.

Whitelabel business model: if you want to make your platform available to other industry members under the umbrella of your business, the Anjouan license is the perfect choice. This allows you to scale your business and offer the platform to those who don’t want to apply for their own license.
