Jersey Issues First Remote Gaming Licence

The Jersey Gambling Commission has granted its first remote gaming license to Twelve40 Limited, enabling the company to offer online gaming services from the island.
The Commission already regulates twelve domestic market bookmakers and others, such as operators of gambling machines. However, Twelve40 is the first operator to be approved to offer international services from the island, and the Commission has also approved four testing houses, and granted permits to two remote gaming hosting providers and a software design company.
The approval of the remote gambling license may show that Jersey is seeking to establish its own offshore gambling market, in light of the industry's presence in nearby Alderney and the Isle of Man. The Commission was created in September 2010 through the Gambling Commission (Jersey) Law 2010.
