Betting and Gaming Law
This page was last updated on 24 February 2020.
In 2001 the Department of Home Affairs progressed the primary and secondary legislation to legalise the Isle of Man based operation of well-regulated online gambling sites. The primary legislation, the Online Gambling Regulation Act, came into force in May.
The application fee, originally set in 2001 at GB£1,000, rose to £5,000 in 2003 at which price it has remained. However, the full (’standard’) annual licence has decreased in price from £80,000 to £35,000. It covers all subsectors of online gaming.
