We recommend paying attention to the Isle of Man, which has undeniable advantages. It is situated in the Irish Sea and formally is under control of Great Britain. But in fact, the Isle of Man is a self-governed territory and has a separate legislation, which encourages gambling since 2001. The Isle of Man was among the first country, which provided attractive taxes for this business.
ADVANTAGES OF THIS ZONE

Only 2 laws regulate online gaming business. Their main aim is to protect investors and business owners, so you do not have to worry about the assets. There is one type of license for all kinds of activities. Some additional activities, like marketing or server maintenance, do not require a license at all. Also, you can apply for a license and operate under the brand of well-known institutions.
