The EORG has proved to be a popular license. There are now a number of companies that can legally operate in Estonia to provide online casino services. Those that attempt to operate without one will be restricted by the internet service providers.
When the licenses were first established, only eight were issued. The government and the internet service providers have more than 800 different sites blacklisted for not following the process or complying with gambling legislation.
The detailed process means that any company that offers online casino services has been checked and is subject to further checks as and when necessary. The operating permits for online casinos can be issued for 20 years, depending upon the type of games that they offer. The company can also apply for a permit for more than one site on the same form.
