The Authority advises that the System Documentation Checklist (SDC) is consulted prior to initiating a new Gaming Licence Application.

All documentation and information as per the SDC, together with the SDC, need to be submitted electronically through the Licensee Portal. The application type ‘Gaming Licence Application’ needs to be selected, and the Gaming Licence Type ‘B2B Software’ needs to be selected as an option, as well as the respective channel i.e. remote, land-based or both, if applicable.

The application is linked to an entity, and the application is visible from the Company’s Timeline. This enables applicants to start an application, saving the process and continuing the application at a later date.
