Alderney Defends Full Tilt Poker Regulation

Alderney Gambling Control Commission Issues 100th Licence To Poker Company, Says Full Tilt Controversy Did No Damage


The Relax Gaming Network, owner and developer of the Rush Poker-style game Fast Poker that was announced last week, has received a licence from the Alderney Gambling Control Commission (AGCC).

It is the 100th licence issued by the AGCC, according to the BBC.

Robin LePrevost, head of e-commerce, told the news outlet that Alderney was “the place to be” for the online gambling industry.

He added that last year’s controversy involving the AGCC’s hands-off regulation of Full Tilt Poker, which went broke owing millions of dollars to poker players around the world, had done no damage to the island’s industry.
