Alderney Licenses International Charity Lottery

by Jason Gorringe,, London

18 May 2012

The Alderney Gambling Control Commission has announced that it has provided a license to the first international charity lottery to operate from the specialist e-gaming territory, situated in the English channel.

The People’s Postcode Lottery makes up part of global charity lottery group Novamedia/Postcode Lotteries. The company was announced as the third private largest fundraiser in the world by London newspaper City AM in December 2011. The Postcode Lotteries serve as a fundraising model for charity, while allowing participants the chance to win cash prizes.

Robin Le Prevost, Director for eCommerce Development for the States of Alderney said: "The People’s Postcode Lottery fits very well with our licensee profile in that they have a terrific record and reputation whilst being highly innovative and dynamic. We look forward to working with them as they extend their market reach, through Alderney."

The provision of a license to the People’s Postcode Lottery marks the 105th license awarded by Alderney to date.
