Simon’s Guide to Gambling and Online Gambling in the Channel Islands

This is a picture of the landscape of the Bailiwick of Guernsey. On this page you can read about the gambling, online gambling, sports betting, lottery, bingo, bitcoin gambling in the Channel Islands (Guernsey, Jersey, Alderney).

Channel Islands (Jersey, Alderney, Guernsey) gambling guide

 

The Channel Islands are situated in the English Channel, and consist of 7 inhabited islands as well as 4 uninhabited ones. All inhabited islands belong to the Bailiwick of Guernsey except for Jersey, which belongs to the Bailiwick of Jersey (Alderney is part of the Bailiwick of Guernsey). Both Bailiwicks are British Crown Dependencies, but not part of the United Kingdom, and they are also not part of the EU. Acts of the British Parliament do not apply automatically to the islands, but may be extended to them. In general, both Bailiwicks legislate for themselves and in many ways are micronations.

Gambling is legal in both Jersey and Guernsey. Legal forms of gambling available include lotteries, raffles, bingo, poker, keno, bitcoin gambling and sports betting. Gambling operators are required to obtain a licence, which both bailiwicks provide. Many live gambling events, tournaments are held here for a charitable cause, the islands have a reputation for a long time for organizing gambling events for charitable causes.

Online gambling is also legal and regulated in the Channel Islands. In fact, they are one of the online gambling licensing hubs of the world.

Channel Island gambling license: There are, in fact, several online gambling companies licensed and registered in one of the two Bailiwicks. Guernsey has a longer history of issuing such licenses, while Jersey granted its first online gambling licence in January 2015.* The favourable tax rates (it’s a tax haven, an offshore gambling tax haven, unethical but perfectly legal) resulted in many online casinos getting licensed here.

A gambling license from the UK channel islands is actually among the best licence an online gambling firm can get. It’s among the more reputable places, and it’s probably the best offshore gambling hub. Of course any local European (especially the UK gambling) license is superior, but they often only extend to that particular country (and have a much higher tax rate).

“Remote gambling” operators who wish to obtain a Jersey gambling licence need to apply to the Jersey Gambling Commission and, in case of casino-style games, to the Jersey Financial Services Commission as well. The service providers need to be located in Jersey  in order to receive a licence. Not much is known about the gambling license and gambling regulatory board of Jersey as almost all companies choose the bigger Bailiwick of Guernsey, which I consider reputable.

Alderney, while part of the Guernsey Bailiwick, has its own gambling commission, the Alderney Gambling Control Commission. However, as Alderney does not have the infrastructure necessary, many gambling companies licensed in Alderney actually operate from Guernsey.

Casino gambling in the Channel Islands

 

Online casino gambling in the Channel Islands: legal, license required

 

Casino gambling is legal, though interestingly there are no brick and mortar casinos on the islands despite it being an online gambling licensing center. St. Pierre Park Hotel, Spa & Golf Resort received the licence to operate a casino, but as of yet no casino games are available on the premises.

Online casino gambling, on the other hand, thrives in the Channel Islands. Not only is it legal for locals to participate in online casino games, the gambling commissions of Jersey, Alderney and Guernsey also issue online gambling licenses. (It should be noted that requirements for gambling operators who offer casino games are somewhat stricter than for other operator.)

The gambling legislation in the Channel Islands is mostly concerned with gambling licences, not with the possibilities of individual players (due to the small population). It is illegal to operate online casino gambling services from local servers without a licence, but there’s nothing stopping locals from playing on foreign casino sites. Still, with the abundance of locally licensed gambling operators – the numbers are in the hundreds – it is doubtful whether they feel the need to turn to unlicensed casinos.

The following online casinos below accept players from the Channel Islands (two of them are actually licensed in the Channel Islands, in Guernsey and Alderney).

Bingo is legal in the Channel Islands, though in Alderney (within the country) only charitable games are allowed, commercial bingo is not. Bingo nights are organized in both Jersey and Guernsey, in several establishments (clubs, restaurants, etc.), seems to be very popular.

Online bingo is not specifically regulated by the gambling laws, but it requires a licence and it is considered gambling (there are bingo websites licensed here, see below, and they an Alderney licence). Prospective bingo operators should apply to the commission on the island of their choice for a gambling licence. Residents of the islands are also free to play on foreign online bingo sites.

The following online casino has live bingo and accepts players from the Channel Islands and it is licensed in Alderney:

Poker in the Channel Islands

 

Online poker in the Channel Islands: legal, licence required

 

Poker is legal in the Channel islands. It is considered a form of gambling, not a game of skill, though separate licensing regulations affect poker than other games of chance. Within the islands home, small scale poker games are permitted, but larger-scale and commercial poker events need to be authorised by the gambling commission.

Online poker is also legal, and requires the same e-gambling, remote gambling licence as operating other forms of gambling. Licensed online poker operators need to be physically present on the islands, or at least be registered here and have their main office here (but it’s usually an empty virtual office). Locals looking to play online poker may play at the locally licensed online poker sites, as well as offshore poker sites available to them.

The following online poker sites below accept players from the Channel Islands.

Sports betting in the Channel Islands

 

Online sports betting in the Channel Islands: legal, licence required

 

Sports betting is also legal in the Channel Islands, and requires a licence to operate legally either online or offline. Sports betting with many wagering options and sports on offer is available in betting shops throughout both Bailiwicks.

Online sports betting used to require a separate licence from gambling licences in Jersey. However, since 2012 gambling licences are no longer divided into betting and gambling licences.* Residents of the Channel Islands may wager on both locally licensed and offshore online sports betting sites. Virtual sports betting is also legal, and there are websites (see below), which are licensed here and operate virtual betting sites (virtual sports betting is a computer simulation with 3D graphics, instead of a real sporting event).

The online sportsbooks below accept punters from the Channel Islands.

This means that anyone with a licence may organize lottery draws, promotional lotteries, keno and raffles. There is also the the Channel Islands Christmas Lottery, which is a joint lottery of Guernsey and Jersey and all proceeds from the sale of tickets goes toward non profit initiatives and local projects.

Online lottery operators have to apply for an e-gambling or remote gambling licence as well. There are no laws restricting locals from participating in international lottery draws.

Bitcoin gambling in the Channel Islands

 

Bitcoin gambling in the Channel Islands: legal, requires licence

 

After the economic success brought on by becoming one of the world’s largest hubs for online gambling, the Channel Islands welcomed Bitcoin. Though the results are yet to be seen, the local laws are friendly to Bitcoin investments and the industry showed a positive reaction.*

The Channel Islands is one of the few countries actively accepting and licensing Bitcoin casinos. Operating Bitcoin gambling is permissible under certain e-gambling licenses, though one should consult the gambling commissions for specifics. Bitcoin gambling is also legal for locals, whether they wish to play in locally licensed or offshore Bitcoin casinos.
