Casino Licensing: Alderney Gambling Control Commission

Published on by Adam

Casino Licensing: Alderney Gambling Control CommissionThe Channel Islands are an archipelago situated in the English Channel, not far from the coast of France. Whilst being close to the UK and remaining a British Crown Dependency, they are not actually a part of the United Kingdom. The most northerly of the islands is Alderney, a small place you may not be familiar with, but that is hugely important in the online gambling world.

Alderney has it’s very own gambling commission; the Alderney Gambling Control Commission, who were created in order to offer licenses to online casinos. They offered their first licenses way back in 2002 and have been a forerunner in the licensing world ever since. They license some huge Netent casinos such as Boylegames, BGO and Betfair.

The Alderney Gambling Control Commission, also known as the AGCC, states that it;

“transmits more egambling traffic than any other location on the globe and is in fact much larger than the combined activity of its three European offshore rivals (Gibraltar, the Isle of Man and Malta.”

The AGCC is allowed, by the EU, to issue licenses to online casinos meeting their strict regulatory requirements, in order to protect players all around the world. They believe that, whilst it is the players responsibility to ensure that online gambling is legal in the jurisdiction from which they are playing, the casinos must verify certain details, including the players age to ensure they are of legal gambling age in their country of residence, which is at least 18 years old, but can be up to 21 in some countries.

The AGCC issues two different types of licenses, depending of the needs and the offerings of the casino applicant.

  1. Category 1: this authorises the organisation and preparation of gambling operations; the registration and verification of players, the contractual relationship with them, and the management of player funds.
  2. Category 2: authorises the effecting of the gambling transaction including operational management of a gambling platform located within an approved hosting centre.

An online casino may apply for either one, or both, of the licenses, as their service requires.

The AGCC exists to protect players, so they’re very concerned with responsible gaming. They want players to be able to enjoy online gambling, but to have protective measures in place, should the playing become less like fun and more like a dependancy. In order to receive, and retain, an AGCC license, the operator must have various limits in place for players to select, should they wish. These limits can include a deposit limit, a loss limit or periods of ‘self exclusion’ where the account will be closed, without the chance of being reopened, either for a set amount of time or permanently.

They’re also interested in safety from a technological point of view. The casino systems must be capable of carrying out the services that it is advertising and safe and secure enough for players to register their personal and payment details without any fear of these being used in any way, other than for their enjoyment on that casino.

The Alderney Gambling Control Commission is a very important and well respected licensing body and if you spot a casino with this license, you know they are one you can trust. For full details, plus a list of all the Netent casinos that hold this license, you can visit our Alderney license page.
