Launching an online casino: behind the scenes

slothino how to start online casino

Opening an online casino might seem like a rewarding and overall great experience. While we at Slothino love what we do, the fact of the matter is there is a lot of work to be done before we can provide you with the greatest imaginable online casino.

To give you a sneak peek behind the curtain we have written this blog post. Read all about the key steps involved in opening an online casino. 

Selecting online providers

Our quest began with selecting the best B2B casino providers. This unfortunately not only involves the fun part of trying out casino games and contracting companies like Gamomat, Play’n Go and Evolution Gaming to get their games in our online casino.

Great software is the backbone of any amazing online casino. Next to game providers, we need a platform to run everything from payments, marketing tools, and fraud management to content management systems.

These types of software are less glamourous and flashy, but if our spirit animal has taught us anything it’s that looks aren’t everything.

Licensing and legal issues

Of course, our players expect online casinos to be safe and legal in all respect. Obtaining a casino license is of critical importance.

We have chosen to apply for the more expensive, but overall better and safer Maltese gambling license over a license of for example Curacao. The MGA is the regulatory body in Malta. To attain a license you have to follow strict procedures and adhere to a multitude of rules and regulations.


You can’t run an online casino without proper payment methods and procedures. It will be hard to take deposits and pay the winnings without it.

To smooth out this step of the process of opening Slothino we have come to agreements with some of the best payment system providers. This gives us the opportunity to accept different methods of payment. Most importantly: the transactions will be safe.

Marketing and bonuses

After these technicalities, the fun part starts! We get to write these blogs for you and can let our creative team loose so they can get started making the best-looking website.

Coming up with great bonus ideas can give a casino a head start and the upper hand over competitors. Of course, we only want to see happy faces at Slothino so we like to make our promotions and bonuses as appealing as possible.

Having the sloths patience in coping with 10.000 challenges

Above all, opening an online casino asks for a lot of patience. There are thousands of challenges that differ from crucial for opening the casino at all, to small and seemingly unimportant but nevertheless in need of solving.

We have applied the sloth’s patience to slowly move towards opening our doors of you: our esteemed guests! We hope you like to ‘hang’ around with us and enjoy the hard work we put in.

When will Slothino launch?

So When can you come play at Slothino? When all goes according to plan, we will be opening our virtual doors in the beginning of fall 2020. We can’t give an exact date yet, so keep checking back at to stay up to date.
