The commission's establishment was informed by two main reasons. For one, the commission wished to benefit from casino revenues. Another reason was to cushion the Curacao jurisdiction from online casino gaming (casino operators can carry out their activities in the jurisdiction without targeting Curacao citizens).
Yes and no. This depends on the motive of the casino operating in the Curacao region. The commission has been known to have some downsides when it comes to player protection. For instance, it has relaxed licensing rules, and it's lenient on such things as casino bonuses, allowing casinos to escalate the wagering requirements as they wish. As such, finding a rogue casino operating under the Curacao license is no big deal.
