Starting out as an online gambling operator

Full aheadStarting out with your first venture into the online gambling business can be a daunting prospect. There are many hoops that aspiring operator will need to jump through before they can take that first bet. Many affiliates have successfully built their businesses and want to take the next step to becoming an operator, but how simple is it in reality?

First up on the list is selecting what games you want to offer. Your players may focus on poker, but side games (such as slots or blackjack) are very popular and an excellent source of revenue. Casino games are always going to be income generators and have been popular with players of all demographics. So it often makes sense to add casino to whatever your target market is. Sportsbooks have traditionally been an expensive and complicated behemoth that gobbles resources. No more is this the case and now operators of any size can add a sportsbook offering with the Tain Thorium Sportsbook.

If you choose to operate under your own licence, instead of opting to piggy-back on an existing white-label, then next up on the list is to decide where exactly you would prefer to be licensed from. There are pros and cons to each jurisdiction. To take just two, Malta benefits from European location and the ability to gain access to certain payment service providers dominant in the European markets. On the other hand, Curacao offers a far simpler and more cost-effective solution with a single licence for all gaming products.

Tain offers a clean and simple approach in these matters, allowing new operators to grow in their own time through our white-label products with a full suite of games on offer, right through to becoming a fully licensed operator. Because Tain keeps your player data completely separate from all other data, moving your business onwards and upwards should never be a hurdle.
