How to get your gaming license?

We can provide both a full legal support of the gambling business startup, and perform a specific action required by the Client, for example, obtaining a license or certifying the equipment.

Of course, in the case of ordering a set of works on the launch of gambling business, all actions will be carried out much faster, because several lawyers will work on the project simultaneously. However, this is impossible when ordering one specific action.

Answers to frequently asked questions

When should I start getting a Gambling License?

In fact, if you think about starting a business in the field of gambling, then it’s worth beginning the work a year before the desired start date, because according to law, this type of business requires a domain name, which can be registered only if you have a trademark. And the TM registration takes at least a year (we can accelerate this process, but this time still need to be considered in your business plan). In addition, as a rule, it takes several months to find the necessary premises for the casino, as well as to purchase / certify equipment, install and commission it.

How often and how much do I have to pay for gambling activities?

The official license payment is made once a year. Its amount is calculated based on the minimum wage as of January 1 of each year.

Do you need a Gambling License?

If you do not have at least one of the following features in your activities:
Availability of a bet;

  • Availability or inability to receive the prize;
  • Opportunity to win depends on chance.


Then your activity most likely does not fall under the definition of gambling, and therefore is not subject to licensing. In this regard, before starting your own business in the field of gambling, you should consult with the lawyers of our company on the need for a license.
