To obtain a license from the Italy Gambling Authority, an operator needs to be established and licensed within the European Economic Area. Gambling companies incorporated in Italy are subject to the country’s 27.5% corporate income tax rate and a regional tax of between 2.98 and 4.82% based on the region in which they were established.
There is more to the peculiarities of launching places to bet and win under the Italian gaming jurisdiction, as there is also more to playing within the Italian gambling license. We cover all those points, as well as provide recommendations regarding some of the best websites, games and bonuses in our detailed review below.
Italy Gaming License Details
The Italian gambling market is peculiar in many ways. For starters, this was one of the first countries in the European Union to insist on developing clear rules for virtual gambling and to cement those in a set of policies implemented via Agenzia delle Dogane e dei Monopoli. At the same time, in 2019 the country also made a significant step towards limiting online wagering by putting in place a ban on advertising online games of chance.
Those operators that would like to have their share of the market, will need to apply for either of the following permits: online gaming, online lotteries, or a permit for accepting bets on sports. In order to qualify, a brand will need to operate within an .it domain. The package of documents submitted to ADM for revision, will need to have copies of IDs of all the owners and shareholders, statements from banks to back up the availability of accounts, verified financial sustainability as well as checked and certified gaming software, and a development plan outlined in great detail.
A fee that allows a brand to provide gambling services is EUR 350,000 (including VAT 20%). Additional fees will be applied to turnover and gross revenues of games, exchange and sports bets, Racebook activity, bingo and skill-based content.
As any in-country licensing (such as in Sweden, Denmark, Alderney and others), an Italian gaming permit is considered a very prestigious one, and it shows a company’s sustainability, responsibility and compliance with the world iGaming standards.
Software Compatible with Italy Gaming License
Back in the day, the selection of Italy-friendly software was small, and even those companies that emerged within the market were aiming to enter broader sectors due to a lack of decent propositions and growth within the Italian gaming territory.
Things are changing, however. Between 2018 to 2020, based on the news that we’ve been receiving from software developers, more and more of the studios applied for and received proper licensing and joined the expanding Italian market. This allows for a truly diverse selection of all game cohorts, including the live lobby, in the virtual lobbies offered to Italian players.
Among some of the most common content that you’ll find is that of Novomatic, and this is no surprise. One of the oldest and most experienced Europe-based studios also has one of the broadest geographical outhreaches. Now, it may not be on top of its game lately in terms of modern slots, but the company is irreplaceable in terms of powering platforms and providing quality B2B solutions.
Usually, Novomatic neighbors with such other content creators as Green Tube (no wonder!) and a live content supplier Evolution Gaming - currently the indisputable leader of the live dealer games segment.
Another software developer that you can frequently spot in Italian-licensed websites is Playtech, which can either share the lobby or be the sole provider of games. Playtech delivers a full portfolio of classic and video, as well as progressive slots, table games, video poker and arcades.
For those of you wondering whether there are some trending creators among Italy-friendly libraries, we say yes. You can actually find a list of NetEnt slots, as well as releases from Next Generation Gaming and Microgaming.
Among the latter, one of the most impressive is Snai, that supports six betting options on top of gaming. These are Sportsbook and racebook, poker and bingo rooms, lottery and skill games. This gambling destination opened the doors to its lobby in 2012. All of its content and services are available only in Italian. Wagering is possible only in Euros. Daily and monthly withdrawals are unlimited.
Following it in terms of variety of wagering possibilities is Eurobet - an online platform with more than nine years of experience. Here, bets can be placed on Sportsbook and Racebook, and as to games, more than 300 are hosted in the lobby. Ratings from the leading portals are high, and withdrawals are fast and risk-free.
Those of you interested in poker room or bingo services, may also take a look at Goldbet - a brand with more than sixteen years of experience. NetEnt, BGT, World Match, Amaya, NYX, and NextGen are among its content suppliers.
If additional betting options are not your priority, you may take a look at Vegas Casino Online - an operator with eight years of experience, Skrill and Neteller e-wallets, Visa and MasterCard accepted cards, as well as with a high rating at LCB. Here, newly registered regulars can claim 100% cash match on their initial deposits, and this deal has to be rolled over on slots in order to be cashed out.
Sharing the spotlight with Vegas Online is Star Casino, a location that opened the doors to its virtual lobby in 2013. As all other platforms listed here, this one is available only in Italian. According to official statistics, the risk of non-payment here is non-existent. Another factor worth mentioning is that it has unlimited daily and monthly withdrawals. The welcome deal will cover four initial deposits with a cash match between 50% to 200%, and there is also a no-deposit proposition. All are subject to the play-though terms that are 35xBD. Slot machines and arcades are among cohorts that contribute the most to the wagering requirements, and other terms and conditions apply.
Best Bonuses for Casinos Licensed by Italy Gambling Authority
One of the most frequent bonus to be spotted in Italian lobbies is the welcome deal. This one may be either a no-deposit offer, or a cash match on one or more initial deposits. At Snai, all newly registered regulars can claim a no-deposit offer of five Euros while depositing by credit cards. Even more cash is available at Star Online. To be clear, these are still subjects to the rollover requirements and terms and conditions, but they may be a good way to test the waters, risks, services and offres of a particular online operator.
Cash match will vary anywhere between 25% to 200%, and its wagering requirements (depending on the selected brand) will be anywhere between 35xBD to 60xBD, which is rather high. Slot machines will contribute the most to the play-though requirements. If those are completed on time, depending on the rules, bonus cash may sometimes also be withdrawn along with the wins.
