SBGOK • support for online gaming victims

Your deposits or winnings confiscated by a Curacao licensed online casino or sportsbetting? A gambling addiction abused by a Curacao operator? Your child targeted? Stealing from players can prove a lucrative bookmaker businessmodel. Many are happy to take deposits without identity, age and country verification, even throwing bonusses without outlining the fine prints. However, if you actually win something, a variety of tricks may be used to prevent you from withdrawing. Known criminal techniques are withdrawal restrictions, fraudulent bonus terms and post obstructive KYC requirements. The SBGOK foundation helps victims to recover legitimate claims. We support loss recovery through investigation, mediation and litigation. If necessary on a contingency (no cure, no pay) basis so your success becomes ours. That’s how determined we are to restore justice for victims. Not a client? Register your claim to have your case assessed for free. Our experts weigh your needs and options and get back to you within 14 working days.

Curaçao online gambling

The Kingdom of the Netherlands consists of an European part and a Caribbean part. Since 1993, Dutch European governments, corporate service providers, banks and fintechs facilitate the world’s oldest and largest offshore online gaming network through the former Dutch colonies in the Caribbean. The ‘Dutch offshore online gaming network‘ is promoted through the Dutch Double Tax Treaty network, anonymous shell company structures, government owned telecom infrastructure, (E-zone) taxpractices, lax gaming legislation and dito anti-money laundering regulation, including a culture of impunity (no supervision and no law enforcement), warranted by article 43 of The Charter for the Kingdom of the Netherlands and the Central Dutch Kingdom government in Den Hague (Holland).


Through the Caribbean parts of the Kingdom of the Netherlands – strategically situated at ‘the front door’ of Latin America – the Dutch islands of Aruba, Curaçao and Saint Martin form extended financial ‘online gaming hubs’ of the Amsterdam financial center, located 40 miles from the coast of Venezuela, Colombia and Mexico.


Although nowhere officially registered, the Kingdom of the Netherlands is currently home to over 10.000 offshore online gaming, sportsbettings, poker, slots and cryptogambling ‘sub licensed’ websites and apps worldwide. Plus thousands of gaming/gambling terminals in bars, coffeehouses, restaurants and landbased casino’s to the rest of the world. Offering full-range fiscal and corporate B2B gaming services to all countries worldwide as well,  the ‘Dutch offshore online gambling network‘ has become not only the oldest and biggest online gaming network in the world, but also the leading global online gaming and cryptocurrency jurisdiction for 25 years.


So when online gambling victims of Curacao licensed casino’s and sportbettings suffer losses from fraud or abuse, they need a solid partner on their side. The non-profit Foundation for Representation of Victims of Online Gaming (SBGOK) represents the interests of victims and players of Curaçao offshore online gaming, assisted by an Egaming specialized lawfirm and international experts in the field.


SBGOK supports players and victims with legitimate complaints and claims from Curaçao licensed online casino’s and sports betters seeking to restore justice with regards to confiscated deposits and wins or targeting children and addicts. The Foundation has international gaming expertise and backbone to assist clients anywhere in the world to recover their legitimate claims in Curacao.
