Alderney is the northern most of the Cannel Islands and is a self governing British Crown dependency. The Alderney Gambling Control Commission was founded in May of 2000 under The Gambling (Alderney) Law, 1999. The Commission, which is an independent and non-political body, regulates electronic gambling on behalf of the state. In 2006 the several new provisions were introduced into its statute giving it the present outlook. Alderney is a leading online gambling jurisdiction today.
The mission of the Commission is "to ensure and maintain the integrity of the electronic gambling industry in Alderney." It seeks to do that by ensuring that electronic gambling is conducted honestly and fairly; all aspects of electronic gambling, including funding, remain free from criminal influence and the interests of the players are protected at all times.
Even after the licenses are issued the Alderney Commission continues to regulate the operations of the licensees. One key area in this respect is player protection. Steps taken in this direction include investigating complaints by aggrieved players and ensuring that the licensees are taking adequate steps to prevent underage gambling, to address problem gambling and to look into customer complaints.
There are 41 full licensees in the Alderney jurisdiction. The stature of these licensees in the online gaming industry reflects on the reputation Alderney enjoys. The licensees include PKR Limited, Full Tilt Poker, William Hill, Virgin Games and Paddy Power.
