Antigua and Barbuda gambling commission

The Gambling Commission of Antigua and Barbuda

Authority: 3.9

The Directorate of offshore gaming is a regulator that is located in a small island state Antigua and Barbuda. It has been registering online casinos under its jurisdiction for about 25 years. It was founded in 1994 and known as one of the first regulators providing licensing service.

Even though the Directorate of offshore gaming is included in white-list of UK Gambling Commission and its operational activity has been lasted for years, we can't say that it’s a really trustworthy company. Due to Antigua & Barbuda Directorate of Offshore Gaming allows casinos, that are under its supervision, accept players from the US, showing no respect to the laws of the other country, which may be a sign of dismissive attitude to its own clients.

Though the Directorate of offshore gaming tries to testify registering casinos and ensure safe environments for players, small countries sometimes consider gambling industry as the main source of revenue for government finance, which may lead to low control of the casino's politics and settlement of disputes between a casino and players.

Nevertheless, if a player has complaints against a casino regulated by the Antigua & Barbuda, there is an email address given on its website.

As a result, the Directorate of offshore gaming can’t be considered as a 100% reliable regulator. It's whitelisted by the UK Gambling Commission. Though it accepts US players. And as a small island state is, probably, interested in getting revenue from gambling, which may become a reason for poor control registered casinos, that in turn, is bad, first and foremost, for its players.
