U.S. Regulators Loosen Licensing Reins On Affiliates

Nevada will no longer require all online poker affiliates to apply for a state gaming license, according to recently passed legislation.

Senate Bill 38, passed at the end of May, removes suppliers of customer lists and databases from the range of entities required to obtain licenses as “interactive gaming service providers” in Nevada.

The move is a step back from the licensing requirements originally established by a 2011 Nevada law that laid the groundwork for America’s first set of regulations on interactive gaming, which were adopted later that year.

Licenses will still be required if affiliates receive any percentage of gaming revenue for driving traffic to an online poker site.
