To legally offer gambling services in Estonia, remote casinos are required to obtain both an activity license and an operating license. Let’s take a quick look at the difference between the two:
Activity license: Acquiring an activity license is the first step for any mobile casino intent on attracting Estonian players.
This requirement is needed for organizing games of chance, too, and games of skill. A separate activity license must be obtained for every type of game.
Private or public limited companies registered within Estonia or the European Union are able to apply.
Operating license: Once an activity license is granted, an operating permit is then issued, if approved, by the Estonian Tax and Customs Board.
Only then can a mobile casino enter the Estonian gambling market. As with the activity license, separate operating licenses are needed for various game types.
The Future of Mobile Gambling in Estonia
Whether spinning slots or pulling up a virtual seat at the poker table, Estonians can enjoy a safe and thrilling experience while on the go.
The popularity of online gaming continues to soar, with an increasing number of Estonian citizens signing up to mobile casinos, both local and international.
This trend shows no sign of slowing, so no doubt even more operators will be submitting their license applications to give gambling enthusiasts as much variety as possible.
