Antigua and Barbuda fail to make U.K. white list

16 January 2008

The U.K. Gambling Commission has rejected "white list" applications from the Mohawk Territory of Kahnawake in Canada and Antigua and Barbuda. The Gambling Commission did not offer any explanation in making the announcement.

In order for an online casino to advertise freely in the U.K. it must be licensed either in Britain, the European Economica Area or jurisdictions on an approved "white list."

Tasmania recently joined Alderney and the Isle of Man as the only jurisdictions that have been approved for the "white list" by the Gambling Commission. Online casinos with Tasmanian licenses can begin advertising in the U.K. on Jan. 31.
