A lot of things changed in the past 15 years in Mexico, regarding online gambling and how it is governed and controlled. In the beginning no special license was required to operate an online casino if you already were licensed for a land casino. To be precise, from 2004 up until 2007 that was the reality, however, in 2008 this changed and The National Lottery of Mexico started to offer a special license for online casino operators.
Online gambling is regulated appropriately in Mexico. All you need is a license to operate an online casino and the entity will have no problems with the law. One of the major concerns and the key area in which the government of Mexico has put effort is money laundering through the so called mini-casinos. They have made an attempt to disrupt this sort of activity by cooperating with the banking institutions by blocking credit and debit cards to certain entities within Mexico.
The first step of the process of application consists of making a formal request for a license to the National Lottery of Mexico. After that the premises and the equipment are audited by the authority and if it is satisfactory the applicant receives the license and as a license holder it is eligible of providing gambling services to the general public, domestic or foreign.
The work of the commission has resulted in a well-controlled system that provided the players with an environment free from scams and poor customer service. It has attracted players that are regarded as major in the industry such as the Las Vegas From Home.com Entertainment Inc. and the gaming platform provider Probability as one of their clients. This is just a glimpse of what they have done and a small signal of what they are trying to do.
