E-Gaming Is Alive And Well In Alderney

by Robert Lee, for LawAndTax-News.com, London

23 October 2006


Amid turmoil in the international e-gaming world, the Alderney Gambling Control Commission resolved at its October meeting, which coincided with the European i-Gaming Conference in Barcelona, to grant a further four Full eGambling Licences.

These licences were granted to WagerWorks (Alderney) 6 Ltd, Asia Pacific Gaming Ltd, World Poker Tour Alderney Ltd and ElectraWorks (Alderney) Ltd. The granting of these licences followed the decision of the Commission in September to issue Full eGambling Licences to the Alderney subsidiaries of William Hill plc and Sportingbet plc.

Alderney’s Head of E-Commerce Development Robin Le Prevost commented: “The granting of these 6 licences during the last two months brings the total number of licences in issue to 25 and reflects the increasing value that blue chip gambling organisations attach to meaningful regulation as it supports their own corporate governance requirements.”

“Alderney, as an eGambling jurisdiction, has over the last year gained significant momentum which shows no sign of slowing down. In fact, we may now be the fastest growing first tier eGambling jurisdiction. This clearly demonstrates that Alderney has a highly attractive offering for major eGambling operators which includes modern legislation, high quality technological capabilities and a proven business friendly approach providing a safe, secured and trusted jurisdiction.”

Robin added “Alderney can now count amongst its licensees some of the top gaming operators from around the globe. They have recognised the value and peace of mind that establishing their business in Alderney can bring to shareholders and customers alike”.
