New Jersey Regulators Offer 150 Day Amnesty To Affiliates
New Jersey is offering an amnesty to affiliates who offered illegal gambling. The New Jersey Gaming Enforcement Director David Rebuck said in an advisory bulletin that his agency will not prosecute any company that marketed any illegal gambling sites to New Jersey residents since the launch of online gambling in the Garden State in November 2013.
There is however a caveat in that those companies will have to cease offering illegal online gambling options within the next 150 days. The amnesty will also cover those firms that contravened the 2006 Unlawful Internet Gambling Act. Those companies that fail to abide by the new ruling will face possible prosecution and will be barred from applying for an online gambling license in New Jersey in the future.
The DGE went on to state that those affiliates who continue to promote international online sites to New Jersey residents will have their licenses revoked even if these affiliates market or promote illegal online gaming sites to other players in other states. In addition the DGE will share its list of “bad actors” with gaming regulators in other states which is would mean that bad affiliates in New Jersey can forget about getting an online gaming licenses in other U.S. States when the market is further regulated.
