While online gambling is hugely popular in Ireland, it wasn't until 2015 that the Government focused on the blossoming growth of the industry with the Betting (Amendment) Act.
As such, as of 2022, there are currently only a handful of online casinos directly licensed by the Irish Office of the Revenue Commissioners. However, this is a number that is expected to grow in the coming years as the regulatory changes introduced in 2015 come into effect.
Any business which uses remote means to provide a gambling service, whether that be telephone betting or in an online casino, for example, is required to hold a valid Irish gambling license or a gambling license from a trusted global authority.
What this means is even if an online casino isn't directly licensed by the Irish Office of the Revenue Commissioners, it is entirely legal as long as it is approved by a body such as the MGA or the UKGC.
Any online casino licensed by the Irish Office of the Revenue Commissioners will display the organization's seal and license number in a prominent place on its website.
