Finally, online operators are typically ‌subject to licensing requirements, which means they must​ comply with laws on money laundering and⁢ the​ protection of customers’ funds.​ Generally, these will vary‌ depending on country and jurisdiction, ⁣but overall they are aimed at ensuring fairness and transparency.
