The DCMS has added Antigua and Barbuda to its "White List", meaning that licensed gambling operators from that jurisdiction have been able to lawfully advertise in the UK from 20 November 2008.

In all, it is now lawful under the Gambling Act 2005 for licensed operators based in any of the EEA, Gibraltar and the White List territories of Alderney, the Isle of Man, Tasmania and Antigua and Barbuda to advertise in the UK. However, it remains a criminal offence to make available information about gambling services offered by operators based outside those jurisdictions which is intended or likely to come to the attention of persons in the UK.
