U.S. Virgin Islands Approves Online Gambling Amendments

The U.S. Virgin Islands’ legislature has approved changes to the territory’s Internet Gaming and Internet Gambling Act. The amendments were signed by Governor John de Jongh.

The amendments set out provisions for the framework for expanding and regulating internet gambling in the territory, according to a report in the Virgin Islands Daily News.

Senator Craig Barshinger told the paper that the amendments would also repeal sections in the law that grant a master service provider franchise to two named entities. They also contain measures for licensing new providers.

Master service providers have exclusive rights to provide services and license approved applicants to conduct approved internet gambling in the territory.
