Licensing and Regulation InformationTopBet.eu is licensed and regulated by Curacao E-Gaming. If you’ve never heard of it, that’s not surprising. Curacao is one of the smallest countries in the world—it’s an island in the Dutch Caribbean. (You might never have heard of that area of the world, either. It used to be called the Netherland Antilles.) To get their gambling license with the Curacao government, TopBet.eu was required to submit to an initial investigation of their business. They also agree to a regular auditing process conducted by their gaming authority.
Becoming licensed by Curacao isn’t something just anyone can do, either. It costs a significant amount of money in fees–$34,000 upfront, $5600 each month, and 2% of profits are the costs for the first two years. Under-capitalized gambling companies can’t afford these fees, so it’s good to know that TopBet.eu is able to afford them. It means you shouldn’t run into cashout problems based on corporate cash flow issues.
I think it’s also important to look at licensure when shopping for a gambling site. Licensing is probably less important than reputation, but you want to look at the whole picture when deciding whether or not to gamble at a particular site. Having a license from Curacao is not, by itself, a reason to play somewhere. But it is a factor that might affect your eventual decision.
TopBet.eu is a standalone site. In the Internet gambling niche, this is unusual. Many sites are part of a larger conglomerate which features multiple storefronts catering to separate niche. For example, Bovada is associated with Slots.lv. The former specializes in sports betting, while the latter focuses on casino gambling.
The question most visitors to this site are interested in is whether or not a particular site accepts United States gamblers. I’m happy to report that TopBet.eu not only accepts U.S. players but welcomes them. In fact, the USA seems to be the site’s primary focus. The website is only available in English, and the only currency accepted there is the U.S. dollar.
