In 2022, the working world is changing beyond recognition with more and more people choosing the freelance life or even deciding to start their own business.  When it comes to launching a business, there are endless options and, one of these, is the extremely lucrative online gambling industry.  

Getting started with online gambling

Online gambling first burst onto the scene in 1996 and quickly gained traction with internet lovers.  This was, of course, further accelerated during the pandemic and, now, the industry is worth a cool $66.72 billion.  If you fancy a slice of this, you may be wondering how you can start your own online gambling business and, in this article, we’ll take you through how to do just that.

The legal stuff

If you’re looking to kick off an onbling gambling site, the first thing you’ll need is s gambling license for your chosen territory.  Gambling rules are different from country to country and, in some cases, from city to city so, it’s incredibly important that you make sure that you have the correct license.

Get on track with the right platform

Your next step is to choose your iGaming software provider – and choose well.  Reliability is key here as this is hugely important to customers.  When shopping for an iGaming software provider, you’ll want to check that they have: 

  • An outstanding gaming management system
  • Multiple payment options with multiple currencies where applicable
  • Large market coverage
  • A fully customisable front end
  • A huge range of international games
  • Great customer support

A question of content

Now we come to the biggie – deciding what kind of site you’re going to be running.  There’s tons to choose from here, from Bingo to online casinos and, if you’re choosing a casino (casino live), you’ll need to think about whether or not you’re going to be using live dealers as these are really popular with players.  You’ll also want to decide whether you want to offer a wide range of games or focus on a particular niche.  It’s well worth spending the time to research to find a gap in the market for your territory here. 

A great gambling site, by design

Finally, you will need to make sure that you have a website which looks great and is easy to use and navigate.  For this, you should always always invest in the services of a fantastic website designer to make sure that your site is professional and functional.


While it does take time and effort (and a little financial investment), setting up an online gaming site can be extremely lucrative – and with social media and PPC on hand, marketing your new site couldn’t be easier.
