The first license is issued to the gaming establishment for only six months. As soon as it ends, in the absence of violations, it is extended for another 2 years. After that, you will need to renew the license once every 4 years.
Bandwidth and Server
It’s worth mentioning right away that Mohawk Internet Technologies is the main data center where the servers of all institutions licensed in this jurisdiction should be located.
The data center directly cooperates with most of the leading Canadian operators, so it all depends on the choice of the customer, but here you can find a variety of types of Internet connections, from OC-48 to 10GigE.
In addition, the data center has access to private peer-to-peer networks, which is also a significant plus.
There is also SONET, which will allow the casino owner to connect the OS-192 – Montreal’s connection with the servers in Kanawake. The whole plus of this connection is that there will be used many alternative ways to connect the server and hosting. Thanks to this, the software and website will work stably under any conditions.
By the way, another important point in the data center is resorting to Cisco technology, which serves to prevent DDoS attacks. So you can forget about hacker attacks on your site that will work stably even with a massive DDoS attack.
Owners of gaming establishments will need to update the software on the site timely. Of course, a special commission will monitor this. We should also pay particular attention to the risks of reorganizing the Random Number Generator. This should all be taken into account.
Immediately after the license is issued, the supervisory authorities will carefully monitor your project for six months. As soon as the “trial period” is successfully completed, the issue of control will be reviewed individually.

There are no territorial restrictions on advertising and attracting new customers in this jurisdiction.
