    Default Change in atmosphere in the UK

    The atmosphere for the gaming industry in has changedBritain since Tony Blair left office and Gordon Brown became Prime Minister.

    First, Gambling911 announced yesterday that Internet gambling companies not licensed in Alderney or the Isle of Man would not be able to advertise in the UK.

    Today The Telegraph reports that the Royal College of Psychiatrists is calling the decision to let Internet gambling companies advertise in the UK on television (even in these limited jurisdictions) at all a "recipe for disaster."

    Default Antigua confident it will be white-listed

    Companies in Antigua were left behind by this announcement, though Antiguan officials are confident they will be white listed soon ...

    Antigua should be allowed to advertise because its "regulatory and licensing objectives are parallel to the UK's intended remote gaming regulatory regime," Errol Cort, finance minister of the Caribbean nation of 75,000, said in a statement.

    Mark Mendel, Antigua's attorney in the WTO case, doesn't believe the advertising ban will have a huge impact anyway ...

    "It would affect only a few, and not in any dramatic way," he said in a telephone interview on Monday. Still, "I'm sure we'll end up on the white list sooner or later, probably sooner. We're still discussing a couple of issues, but it should be resolved" by the end of the month.
