As a significant deadline set by regulators in New Jersey for US-facing online gambling affiliate approaches, one of the major players in the space has chosen compliance.

That’s per an email from FourCubed, parent company of online gaming affiliate network PAS.net (formerly known as Poker Affiliate Solutions), announcing that the company “will no longer link to, market for, promote, or accept new advertisements and player sign ups at any “illegal online gambling site” that serves US customers.”

Full text of email below.

Background on the DGE policy and deadline

In June, the New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement (DGE) released an an advisory bulletin regarding online gambling affiliate marketers.

Full text here.

That policy was aimed at forcing affiliates to choose between promoting New Jersey-regulated online gambling sites and offshore operators.

But New Jersey officials also made it clear that a failure to comply could negatively impact the ability of affiliates to work in other regulated markets as they come online:

[…] non-compliant affiliates and their principals, officers and directors, as well as any future applicants, will be deemed unsuitable for licensure or registration by the Division going forward. To be clear, the negative suitability assessment will attach to each principal owner, officer and director regardless of any changes in corporate ownership and structure. Moreover, the Division will advise all other gaming regulatory agencies which affiliates, and their principal owners, officers and directors, have not complied with New Jersey law and identify each as unsuitable for licensure or registration in New Jersey.
