How to start your online casino website today
Key steps required to start your turnkey online casino website
Choose a reliable casino software to satisfy all your requirements
A turnkey casino software represents the backbone of your whole business and choosing a high-quality product can transform your venture into a successful one. A GLI-19 certified casino software (like the one developed by CasinoWebScripts.com) means that it was tested by an accredited company (such as BMM TestLabs) and it is bug-free. It also means that the software has all the features that you will require in order to conduct all the gaming operations legally and without any hassle.
CasinoWebScripts can provide you with GLI-19 certified software and custom development services to make sure that your software will have all the features that you require.
Choose the games that you prefer
Keeping your players entertained can be done through games and tournaments. The quality of a game is always more important than the number of games that your casino has. We've seen many websites that offer just a few games and make more money than the ones offering 1000+ games, this is because of the uniquness of their games. CasinoWebScripts has developed over 180 unique casino games using high-definition graphics and attractive features which can be combined with the bonus tools from the software for a better player retention and acquisition rate.
Rent a webserver and start your online casino
In order to run an online casino website from CasinoWebScripts, you will need a webserver as described here. This can be obtained with low costs and no difficulties and it will ensure that you have full access to your gaming operations. Once your server is ready, we can install the online casino and get you ready for the next step.
Apply for a gaming license
Legal obligations are different from country to country. In some countries, a gambling license is not required or it can be obtained quite easily, while in other countries, the costs are very high and it requires months to get approved.
In some countries, for BitCoin casinos no gambling license is required. You can read more here.
If your country has a difficult policy for obtaining a gambling license, you can always consider an offshore license. More details about offshore gambling license can be found here.
Promote your online casinoMarketing is the final step and the return of your investment basically depends on how you handle your marketing budget and campaign. Assuming that you use a software that gives you many options to attract players (such as bonuses, freespins, promotions, statistics, advanced reports, achievements), then the next step is to create a marketing plan and to target the proper players. Greet them with a nice presentation of your content and promotions and they will be happy to spend their time at your casino.

Submit your order
Click the cart button on top right of the screen, SAVE your package and then reply to the email that was sent to your inbox.
Finalize the terms
You will be contacted by us in a few hours to discuss the final details and you will be sent a business contract that will require your signature in order to finalise the order.
We will also need to know the web domain of your casino, since the software license for the products covers only 1 casino website.
Send the payment
Once the contract is signed, we will send you the invoice and details for the payment. We accept payment via wire bank transfer or bitcoins. After we will receive the payment, you will receive the software, along with the documentation and the games. Free installation is included. If you do not wish to grant us login access to your webserver, then we can provide you with installation instructions so that you can do the installation yourself or we can do a remote installation through TeamViewer.
Rent a webserver
In order to do the installation and to run your casino website, you will need to have a web server and a web domain. You can rent one for around 60 EUR per month from any web hosting companies. Our recommandations are to choose a VDS Package that costs around 60-80 EUR per month from a hosting company and upgrade the hardware when your casino starts to have a larger number of players. Recommended web hosting companies are: Tsohost.com, iWeb.com, etc.
The most important aspect that you need to consider when choosing a web hosting provider is represented by their response time to handle your support tickets. A reliable company should be able to respond to any enquiry in less than 1 hour and solve any ticket ASAP.
The server requirements can be found here.
Customise your casino
We offer 4 hours of free customizations to the casino website, with the purchase of the Casino Software Premium version. This includes modifying texts, colors, images and making your casino unique, based on your instruction.
If you did not purchase this version, we can still do modifications to your casino, for an extra cost. The price varies a lot depending on the amount of work involved. For example, if you have a new design that you want us to implement, the price will start at 1000 EURO. If you want us to replace some images and modify some colors, the price will be less than 50 EURO.
Many of the modifications can be done by yourself, through the backend, by checking the documentation and the Web Template Map feature.
Obtain a gambling license
In some countries, for BitCoin casinos no gambling license is required. You can read more here.
If you run a real money casino and you don't have a gambling license, the next step would be to get in touch with a licensing jurisdiction, which can be located within your country (or offshore) and obtain a gambling license for your online casino.
You can read more about licensing here.
Price starts at 5000$/year for a gambling license. You can contact www.fastoffshore.com or Slogold for more details.
