Ireland: Authorized casinos & online operators with a licence
Here you will find everything about the introduction of Irish gaming licences, about authorized online operators and the possibility of an .ie domain.
Irish Gambling Control Bill
The number of offline Ireland Casinos will be limited to a number of 40. Whereas online casinos, bookmakers, betting exchanges will be licensed and will have to pay taxes.
This procedure will limit the number and size of casinos in Ireland. Authorized betting, poker and casino sites will be supervised by the “Office for Gambling Control, Ireland” (OGCI) and make sure everything works smoothly.
Will Irish Online Poker move to .ie domains?
Due to the new online gambling regulation there might be only the best Irish online poker sites left soon. And these sites need to apply for a special licence. In other countries gambling had to introduce a special domain like in Spain for example. The sites have an .es domain and are only available for Spanish players. This could be the case in Ireland too, so only
- Irish online poker sites with an .ie domain will exist
- Irish online poker players are able to play on these certain licenced websites
For sure the same counts for sport betting and casino game websites.
