Welcome to the Legal Gambling and the Law website. In the ever changing online gaming environment it is always important for players and anyone involved in the gaming industry to be fully aware of any country specific laws and regulations that may apply to them when they are thinking of gambling online or setting up any type of online gambling related company.
Whilst many countries of the world have embraced fully the online gaming industry and have actively been looking at, and have often implemented a frame work allowing them to regulate, oversee and license a wide and varied range of gambling related websites, some countries approach online gambling in any shape or form with a head in the sand approach.
With this in mind we have compiled a range of informative and educational guides and articles throughout this website that are going to give you, our website visitor, access to lots of information regarding the legalities of gambling online based on your country of residence.

However, some of the Gambling Commissions and online gambling issuer’s listed below are not of the quality demanded by players and are simply issuing business licenses or offering very easy to acquire gambling licenses and may not offer the back up of a complaints resolution service.
