Estonian Gambling Licence

Legal Gaming in Estonia

We are more that just an ordinary law firm, and as a Finnish company, we understand local customs and country-specific features in Estonia profoundly. We have obtained a great deal of knowledge, networks and understanding of Estonian gambling licence application process, and we are here to help businesses to go through the licensing process as efficiently and reliably as possible.

Estonia is a small nation that has become an European tech hub. Estonia has a solid and rapidly developing infrastructure for iGaming. Estonia is the first country to offer e-Residency, a government-issued digital identity and status that provides access to Estonia’s transparent business environment; a new digital nation for the world. E-resident entrepreneurs from all over the world can start an EU-based company and manage business from anywhere, entirely online. Estonian licensees are allowed to accept foreign players under Estonian licence, with certain limits.

Legal Gaming Efficiently

The process is fast and straightforward. Nevertheless, the length of the process depends on the applicant and the planned set-up. Time needs to be reserved for arranging necessary documentation and authorizations. In addition to this, the technical side of the project needs to be ready.

Legal Gaming Attorneys at Law is a leading Northern European law firm and consultancy company concentrating on assisting companies operating in the iGaming sector. We have assisted our clients with licensing processes, opening bank accounts, drafting policies, reviewing agreements, preparing risk assessments, planning marketing activities and much more. Legal Gaming assistance with the Estonian licensing process, covers the following:
