Kahnawake Gaming License Specifications

The Kahnawake gaming license provides operators with a flexible, cost-effective, and straightforward setup process, accompanied by numerous advantages. As a highly regarded jurisdiction and a favored choice for startups, operators can benefit from competitive setup and maintenance costs, appealing fiscal advantages, and an efficient licensing procedure.


Situated in Quebec, Canada, the Kahnawake Mohawk Territory is a First Nations reserve operating autonomously with the freedom to establish its own corporate and fiscal regulations. Since 1999, the Kahnawake Gaming Commission has been issuing licenses for the global online gambling market, currently overseeing more than 250 licensed gaming sites within the territory.

What are the benefits of the Kahnawake Gaming License?

Relatively Quick

Typically, the application process requires approximately 2 to 3 weeks, and upon the satisfaction of all requirements, the approval phase may extend for an additional 8 to 10 weeks. This positions Kahnawake as one of the swiftest jurisdictions for obtaining an online gambling license.

Application Fees

The application fees for a Kahnawake betting license are among the most affordable in the industry making them accessible for many startups and smaller businesses. This affordability allows businesses to channel more capital into enhancing their products rather than getting tied up in administrative processes.


Application fees must be received by the Commission before an application is processed.

Zero Tax

Entities holding a Kahnawake Gaming License benefit from a 0% gaming tax applied to all gross gaming revenues. This proves advantageous for businesses seeking to maintain low overhead costs and prioritize the reinvestment of revenue and profits into the company’s expansion.

A great option for startups or small gaming businesses

Opting for the Kahnawake online gambling license can be an excellent choice for startups or smaller enterprises. This is not only attributed to the advantages mentioned here but also because it remains economically viable. Consequently, the profits can be reinvested into the business to facilitate expansion, business development, marketing, and the integration of new games, as opposed to being directed toward taxes and substantial fees.

Player Acceptance

The Kahnawake Gaming Commission is recognized for its credibility, and the jurisdiction is widely acknowledged for its trustworthiness. Possessing a Kahnawake gambling license signifies a commitment to responsible and equitable gaming practices, ensuring that the entity operates without any fraudulent intent.


The Commission treats user complaints with utmost seriousness, taking disciplinary action against those who violate the rules. Some entities even face license suspension or cancellation, particularly in instances where investigations uncover unethical business practices. This unwavering commitment to regulatory diligence has resulted in a robust level of player protection for both players and business partners. The Commission is dedicated to diligently overseeing and monitoring its licensees, fostering increased player loyalty and confidence in gambling platforms.

1. Application fee in the amount of Forty Thousand (US$40,000.00) Dollars, which includes:
