Gibraltar Licensed Online Casinos The GRA (Gibraltar Regulatory Authority) is is top-tier licensing body that regulates casino operators very strictly. Any casino bearing a GRA license are generally very reputable operations that stick to the rules and can be trusted. The southernmost tip of Europe is home to one of the most recognized and reputable gaming regulators in the industry. The territory of Gibraltar sits just to the north of Morocco and to the south of Spain. Its considered a financial center due to its tax laws, and many high-class and rich Europeans call it home. When the U.K. announced the 2005 Gambling Act, Gibraltar became part of the European Economic Area (EEA) and was officially a part of the union. This opened the doors to legitimate online gambling operations to call Gibraltar home. Their duties include overseeing operations of any online gaming site that holds a GRA license. Thorough screening is done before any license is issued. Unlike some territories that seemingly hand them out on the corner, the GRA only allows reputable and legitimate businesses within their borders. They also make sure all games are fair and tested to be 100% legit. More importantly, they require all who hold a Gibraltar license to have players funds held separate and be available at all times. Although the GRA has only officially been recognized as a regulator in the gaming industry since 2005, they have been doing so since 1998. To do so with no major problems further solidifies their stance on fair and safe online gaming.
