All casinos licensed in Costa Rica
Costa Rica has become a home jurisdiction for more than 200 online gambling companies and 300 gambling websites. The absolute absence of laws regarding online gaming made Costa Rica one of the most popular places to start an online gaming business in the early days of the industry. Currently, there is no oversight of businesses conducting online gambling through Costa Rica. The companies operate under a "data processing" license. To obtain a license from the government, the corporation must have a physical office in Costa Rica.
