Where do gambling operations base their headquarters and why are these destinations seem so exotic?

Consumers of a certain product always appreciate knowing where their money is going and who is running the firm. In this industry your cash is flowing to places across the globe that you may never visit yourself, unless you are citizens of the specific country in question. Operations are studded across some of the most exotic locations and the reason for this is because these places are somewhat tax havens and that these headquarters allow running such an operation on their soil in the first place.

Gibraltar is one of these places, and it is one of the most prestigious places for an online casino to dwell in. Having such an operation running there usually means that the management has money in a few deep pockets, and many of the top companies are not surprisingly based in Gibraltar. Another attractive location is in Antigua & Barbuda. They actually were the first to offer real online casino licenses and big names find their way here as well.

Additional locations hosting dozens if not hundreds of such operations include Australia, whose government allows gambling online under strict supervision and regulation and the United Kingdom, who is going the opposite direction from the American Government, as it has started to sell licenses. The Kahnawake Territory in Canada is mostly affiliated with the Microgaming software, one of the leading software providers.
