This is the official website of the Jersey Gambling Commission. The site contains all relevant information relating to application forms, policies, consultations and news releases relating to all forms of remote gambling, land-based commercial gambling and social and charitable gambling in Jersey.
For those unfamiliar with Jersey, the Island is located in the Bay of St Malo to the north-west of France and is the largest of the Channel Islands. Jersey is a separate jurisdiction to Guernsey and Alderney, who have their own distinct legislation and licencing regime.
The Jersey Gambling Commission was created by the Gambling Commission (Jersey) Law 2010 which came into force on the 3rd of September 2010. It transferred all responsibilities for licensing, registration and regulation of gambling prescribed as the duty of the minister, the former Licensing Assembly or other States bodies to the new authority.
It is important to note that the Channel Island Lottery is exempt from Regulation by the Commission and remains under the responsibility of the Economic Development Department of the States of Jersey - further details can be found here: Channel Island Lottery
