Belize is Between Mexico and Guatemala, and it is the former English colony. The Caribbean Sea washes this small state from the east, and all tourist and gambling activities in the country are developing in the coastal areas because the central territories are for the most part a marshy plain with a large number of lagoons and lakes. Mountains of Maya are in the south which sparsely populated (apparently named after the tribes inhabiting this region in the pre-colonial period).
The main income item of the state is tourism and offshore activities. In the early 2000s, Belize adopted a law on the gambling control, which protected the local population from the harmful influence of gambling but provided very favorable conditions for foreign gambling operators. In fact, under the jurisdiction of Belize, you can place any form of gambling by paying only one license. At the same time, activities are tax-free, in addition to annual franchise fees.
Belize is one of the few countries that has adopted a law allowing the creation of an online casino. Law of 1995 on Online Game Licensing, which came into force on May 28, 1996, provides for the proper conduct and regulation of online gambling.
In addition to legalizing online casinos, the law also provides for the licensing of computer operator services, which allow users to bet on the Internet at various sporting events, or participate in other gambling.
“Internet” is defined in the law as any publicly available data transmission network or any private network for data transmission that is authorized to transmit such data. And the computer service of online betting is defined as a computer service that allows computer users to bet on sports events or to gamble with each other via the Internet.
