Virgin Islands Casino Control Commission

Welcome Networking Reception Sponsor

The Virgin Islands Casino Control Commission was established under the Virgin Islands Casino and Resort Control Act of 1995 which was passed by the Virgin Islands Legislature as a unique tool of development for the island of St. Croix, which was declared to be the casino zone within the territory where a limited number of casino operator licenses in approved areas would be granted.

The Virgin Islands Casino Control Commission was determined to be that entity which has general responsibility for oversight of the casino industry on the island of St. Croix. It conducts hearings, approves licenses, promulgates rules and regulations, collects fees and taxes, and conducts statutory reviews pursuant to local law.

In 2001 the Virgin Islands Legislature passed Act 6419, the Virgin Islands Internet Gaming and Internet Gambling Act, making the Virgin Islands one of the first jurisdictions of the United States to approve Internet Gaming and Gambling. Act 7318, the Virgin Islands Horse Racing Industry Assistance Act of 2011 was also passed in 2011, establishing racino’s in the Virgin Islands. These Acts further promoted diversification within the casino industry.

One hotel/casino and one racino are currently in operation on St. Croix, with several proposed hotel/casino developments awaiting other regulatory or governmental approvals prior to formally applying for casino licensure. This year, with the recent legal opinion of our Attorney General, we anticipate that our internet gambling Master Service Providers will also apply for Internet Gaming and Gambling licenses pursuant to the Virgin Islands Internet Gaming and Internet Gambling Act.

The Virgin Islands Casino Control Commission website is under reconstruction, and will be online in early summer. Additional information about the Virgin Islands Casino Control Commission can be obtained by sending an email to vicasinocontrol@gmail.com, or contacting Violet Anne Golden directly at 340-514-1177.
