Curacao Betting Operators - Are they reliable?

A common question is whether Curacao-licensed betting sites are reliable or not? It is hard to draw any hasty conclusions or find an answer on this, you simply have to research on your own which ones are reliable and which ones are not. However, people have struggled with rogue Curacao operators, no doubt. For this reason, be extra careful and make a good choice of operator. A good advice is to read what people think about an operator on various forums. Be extra vigilant about T&Cs, bonus rules and make sure their license is valid and also that your country is accepted. I would also suggest keeping your balances at a "reasonable level" with Curacao operators in general even if you made a good choice of operator.


Benefits with Curacao-based/licensed Sportsbooks / Casinos: They often cover all products, such as online casinos, sports betting, e-sports, poker, bingo, and lotteries. When it comes to bonuses (and other benefits), Curacao operators generally offer more in comparison to Malta-based, the UK licensed or other regulated markets. This is simply because Curacao's regulations do not have the same bonus requirements. Moreover, the license offers very low costs and small taxes. This can enable the companies to maintain good prices/odds /high casino payouts etc.
  • Full coverage of products
  • Excellent bonus opportunities
  • Great sports odds & Casino payouts
  • Low costs and small income taxes

Value of the license

Some critics believe that the Curacao license holds a low value, and that is the reason why the license is so cheap. Others say the Curacao-license holds a bad track record when it comes to sorting out player disputes. However, I can see major steps forward with the license status. For instance, Curaçao eGaming (CEG) and the TruePlay blockchain platform, has announced a strategic partnership that is aimed at enhancing transparent and mutually beneficial collaboration between all the participants within the gaming industry. Curaçao eGaming will be attending ICE 2020 and anyone can contact them to arrange a meeting.


Curacao Egaming's consider their mission is to monitor and ensure the integrity and behavior of Curacao Egaming's authorized IP operators and service providers. Curacao have a long-standing track record of providing the total infrastructure and services necessary to support the global eGaming services of the future.

Short summary

There are several good Curacao operators but unfortunately, there are also several operators with a bad reputation. B2U has a list (A-Z) of Curacao-licensed bookmakers (sports/casino sites). The list will be updated continuously.
