Edging closer to legislation in Jersey

TAGs: Channel Islands, egaming legislation

jerseyMilking cows is an activity that Jersey is known very well for. The dairy products the Channel Island supplies are renowned across much of mainland Europe and the UK. Milking may well be the thought on the mind of many inside the island’s government. It doesn’t have a whole lot to do with cows unless you’re talking about the increasing number of women gambling away instead of a life consigned to the kitchen.

By pushing through the final draft of legislation this week it’s hoped that it will be implemented by February next year in time for the wrangling to begin. Gaining a further license in Europe is of interest to a number of gaming companies so demand is likely to be high in the island. Neighbouring Alderney established their gaming control commission over ten years ago and has seen many companies set up shop on the island.

Partying is something for which the gaming industry is known and Jersey must have heard about all the parties they’ve been missing out on. It’s that or Bergerac’s home have noticed the generation of money that will come from gaming legislation. Parties are Bergerac’s forte, although, learning the native Jèrriais tongue is not thought to be top of many company’s lists.
