New Antigua Trade Body Formed

Antigua Leisure and Gaming Association wants to help operators and restore the Antigua licensing jurisdiction to its former prominence

Antigua businessman Nigel Pigott is the driving force behind a new online gambling operator trade association that also wants to work with the local government to restore the Antigua gaming and licensing jurisdiction to its former prominence.
Titled Antigua Leisure and Gaming Association (ALGA), the organisation has put up an informative website detailing the history and importance of the industry to the Caribbean island, and recommending ways in which it can be resurrected to take its place among other popular international regulatory regimes such as the Isle of Man, Alderney and Malta.
The comparative information it presents in this regard is interesting and detailed, indicating thorough research and considerable thought.
ALGA is also on board with the government’s proposal to establish a Gambling Authority to handle regulatory matters instead of the Financial Services Regulatory Commission.
Full details of the organisation and its proposed way forward from both the island government and the industry can be access here:

Infopowa news was a staple of Casinomeister’s news from 2000 until 2019. Brian Cullingworth was the main writer, contributor, and was one of the most knowledgeable persons I have ever known involved in the online casino industry.

We first met in January 2001 at the ICE in London where I observed him going booth to booth interviewing online casino, software, and licensing jurisdiction representatives. Brian was also heavily involved with our forum as “Jetset“, he was involved as an informal consultant to eCOGRA, the OPA, and was a player advocate who assisted countless aggrieved players with his connections to industry folks. He also published “Casino Cautions” via Infopowa news for quite a number of years. These can be found in our news archives.

His passing in February 2019 was a dark day for us. He will be forever missed.
