Online Gambling: A Short History
From the beginning, operators knew that regulated online gambling was the best deal for everyone involved, but most big governments weren’t exactly on board. Fortunately, small nations and territories like Alderney and Malta stepped in to the picture.
These tiny principalities offered legitimate operators a chance to be licensed by credible regulators, without all the hassles of big government.
On the other side of the coin, online gambling brings significant revenue, and a chance to compete in the global marketplace, to some of the world’s smallest principalities.
