Robin Le Prevost, Alderney's head of e-commerce, said the century reaffirmed the island's status as "the place to be" for the online gambling industry. He said the island remained at the forefront of e-gaming regulation. He added: "The commission have got very high standards ... they're not going to lower that in anyway just to attract more numbers."
The Alderney Gambling Control Commission was established in 2000 to regulate the island's e-gaming industry on behalf of the States of Alderney. It was involved in an investigation in to the high-profile site Full Tilt Poker last year.
The site was suspended from operating in June after a US investigation started and had its licence revoked in September after a hearing held by the commission. He said the case had done no damage to the island's industry and claimed Alderney had received support from other jurisdictions for the way in which it had acted.
