There are two main pieces of legislation covering gambling in Jersey:
- the Gambling Commission (Jersey) Law 2010, which governs the work of the Commission;
- the Gambling (Jersey) Law 2012, which covers the legal position on gambling regulation.
There are also two sets of key Regulations:
- the Gambling (Charitable and Membership Gambling Services) (Jersey) Regulations 2012, which cover charitable, social and membership gambling;
- the Gambling (Ancillary Services and Miscellaneous Provisions) (Jersey) Regulations 2012 which cover the provision of gambling services to other businesses.
It is important to note that the Channel Island Lottery is exempt from Regulation by the Commission and remains under the responsibility of the States Department for Economic Development, Tourism, Sport and Culture - further details can be found here.
