The Caribbean island will strengthen its licensing system for the online gaming industry.

Antigua and Barbuda.- The major gaming regulator of the Caribbean island of Antigua, ALGA (Antigua Leisure and Gaming Association), is set to improve the licensing process for the online gaming sector. The news were announced in the regulator’s website Alga.ag.

Alga detailed the latest failures during the licensing process. Those mistakes are the reason why the jurisdiction is not a leading online gaming certification region anymore. ALGA’s main goal is to reinforce the island’s recognition as a relevant regulator for the iGaming industry.

The island used to grant 200 gaming licenses for the international market, whilst currently only 8 have been approved. CalvinAyre revealed that ALGA’s president Nigel Pigott said: “There is no reason why the industry, the government and regulators should not come together to advance the structure of things to a more modern competitive international standard. Allowing Antigua to showcase all the great things that historically made and will continue to make it a premier place to do business.”
