The new licensing process kicked off on 1 September, with the Gaming Control Board (GCB) officially opening the licence application portal.

The portal has two key functions. The first is processing new applications under the current legislation with the GCB. The second is the registration of all sublicensees that wish to continue operating uninterrupted when the LOK is enacted and the new Curaçao Gaming Authority (CGA) is established.

Only Curaçao-registered companies can be registered under the law.
