    Default Malta benefitting from new EU rules - 27 I-gaming companies moving there

    At least 27 I-gaming companies are moving to Malta so they can advertise in the UK under the new rules set out by the government there.

    There are already 84 Internet gambling companies licensed on the island, according to the article.

    Does anyone have a list of where casino/poker and other gambling sites are located to make it easier for UK Webmasters to comply with the new rulings?

    the US government really missed the boat with this one... once again. we could be cashing in and laying down the regulations to treat players fair, provide a solid structure for a booming industry. instead we are swimming upstream. it just drives me nuts. good for the guys in malta, bad for the guys in the us.

    Does anyone know when the Kahnawake decision will be made by the Gambling Commission? If not, a lot of sites are going to get dropped.

    I think Antigua are waiting a decision also that will affect a lot of programs.

    Helpyou,

    You may find these sites of interest:

    xxxhttp://www.gamblingcommission.gov.uk
    xxxhttp://www.asa.org.uk/asa/

    It's worth remembering though that with all Government sites, it's a nightmare to find what your looking for.

    This could be a very interesting week!!!

    Littlewoods
    Sunpoker
    Omni Casino
    CSCasino
    Playboy
    Intercasino
    Rushmore
    Club UK
    BetFred
    Casino Euro

    Can anyone expand on this? Who else have you heard is moving?

    I've just posted this at CAP and thought that GPWA members may also find it of interest, especially those in the UK.

    "Just to clarify, the EEA comprises all member states of the EU plus Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway and Gibraltar.

    I've spoken with them this morning and the ban includes all .com addresses as well as .co.uk directly aimed at or located in the UK as well as UK based Webmasters. It was noted in a previous post that this was not the case.

    They also said that a decision hadn't been made whether or not banners could feature bonuses or not but an update would be issued shortly. I was advised that at the moment, Kahnawake and Antigua links should not be shown on sites that are affected until a decision is made regarding these juristictions.

    I'm surprised that the sites moving to EEA areas aren't more forthcoming with the news that it's ok for UK Webmasters to promote them."

    As an update to the above list of white listed sites : Pokerstars have been accepted into the Isle of Man.
