Alderney and Spectrum Form Online Gambling Advisory

The Alderney Gambling Control Commission was established in May of 2000 and is an independent and non-political organization that regulates internet wagering for the Sates of Alderney. It is made up of three board members and a chairperson who insist that the highest international standards are met.

The Alderney Gambling Control Commission has become one of North America's most consulted regulatory bodies and it has now formed a joint venture arrangement with the Spectrum Gaming Group to provide a full range of services to governments that will be regulating online gambling. The new entity will be named Alderney Spectrum e-Gaming Advisors and it will provide assistance in drafting, reviewing and improving regulations, developing technical guidelines and standards as well as other strategic elements.

AGCC's Executive Director Andre Wilsenach commented,"AGCC has for several years provided help and advice to the leading new jurisdictions in Europe, using the experience we have acquired in more than ten years of operating as a top-tier jurisdiction," Wilsenach continued, "With the impending emergence of multiple new remote gambling jurisdictions in the USA, ASeGA provides a useful, scalable means of supporting a number of jurisdictions at the same time, together with an opportunity to progress common best practice standards of operation."

Spectrum’s Managing Director Michael Pollock also commented in the arrangement, "This is a perfect fit between an experienced, respected regulatory agency and a private firm that already serves tribal, state and national governments around the world," Pollock added, "We share the same values, and we fully understand the goals and challenges that regulatory agencies, tribal councils and others will face as online wagering expands rapidly in coming months."

Spectrum authored the October 2010 white paper, "Internet Gambling Developments in International Jurisdictions: Insights for Indian Nations." Which was commissioned by the 184-member National Indian Gaming Association, the report examined the development and status of Internet gambling in Europe, and suggested strategies for entering the likely Internet gambling market in the United States.
