    Default Nevada gaming board reaches deal with Alderney Gambling Control Commission

    The Nevada Gaming Control Board has reached an agreement with British-based Alderney Gambling Control Commission, according to a number of online reports.

    The Alderney Gambling Control Commission is an Internet gambling regulatory body for the British Channel Islands.

    From the GPWA:

    Nevada gaming regulators and Alderney officials would share information and skills. Visits will be exchanged between the two bodies.

    "We are looking forward to working with Nevada Gaming Control Board in the areas of investigations, compliance and developing technical standards," André Wilsenach, chief executive officer of the Alderney Gambling Control Commission told eGaming Review.

    Nevada gaming regulators are currently looking into the suitability of 888 Gaming, a company that operates online gaming sites in Britain for Caesars Entertainment, including a site based on the World Series of Poker.

    Very interesting this one and if they are planning stuff, good to see them team up with arguably the strictest jurisdiction. Potentially very good news for (future) players.

    This deal will bring players to a more sucured place to play, a much stricter implemented rules will not harm them.

    Interestingly though, 888 aren't licensed in Alderney, they're in Gibraltar I believe, with arguably not so strict licensing. It's good to see the US looking to places of excellence though.

    This might be the major step for Nevada. Known for their forceful hand when it comes to regulations, Gaming Control Board Chairman Mark Lipparelli suggested that Alderney may not be the sole regulatory agency that Nevada set an agreement with. The goal will be to collect as much information as possible before lawmakers act on online gambling regulations.

    Now, who else want to say online gambling isn't secured? With this notable progress, I think, those doubtful ones should start reconsidering online gambling. It is just not like what it was before.. I also think that with this deal, online casinos will be expecting more players.
