US Regulation FAQ
Will I need to get a license?
More than likely this will be on a state-by-state basis. It is not believed that affiliates will need to apply for a gaming license, but rather register as a vendor with a "vendors registration". In the event licensure is required, it is our hope that regulators allow sub-affiliate cooperation allowing affiliates to work independently under a licensed master affiliate.
Can I promote US offers through PAS?
Yes, Poker Affiliate Solutions has established relationships with multiple gaming operators within the U.S. regulated market. As soon as offers are approved and available, PAS will be your gateway to the U.S. market. We anticipate being able to provide offers in each of the regulated markets in 2014.
When will my state regulate online poker?
Much of this depends on individual state legislatures. Nevada, Delaware and New Jersey will all be live by the end of the year in 2013. We anticipate the following states to potentially pass legislation and have regulated online gambling by the end of the year in 2014: Pennsylvania, Massachusetts, New York, California, Florida, Illinois, and possibly Maryland.
What can I do to prepare for US regulation?
Prior to regulated affiliate offers going live, affiliates should be building pages and mini-sites focused on specific targeted markets. Even without live affiliate programs, affiliates leading in the search engines for state specific gambling terms will still have monetization opportunities.
