The below link outlines draft regulations for online poker service providers whom will need a license to operate and those that don't within NGC regulations.

I did find it interesting that a marketing affiliate is required to obtain a class 3 license, payment processors a class 1 or 2.

Good read for those following U.S. online poker regulations. :thumbsup:

Yep - in order for anyone to advertise online poker, you're going to have to be licensed (or under an umbrella of one).

Whenever the US government gets involved, you know it ain't good.

Right now it's the NGC, they're calling the shots on the NV regulations, not the U.S. government.

Although they do have one last shot, lame duck but no one should hold their breath, IMO. :rolleyes:

Class 1, 2, or 3 Servive Provider? Good read!

On June 21, 2012, the Nevada Gaming Commission approved the first interactive gaming licenses pursuant to the recently enacted regulations governing Internet gaming. Specifically, within a span of a couple of hours, Bally Technologies and International Game Technology (IGT) each received unanimous approvals from the commission to be licensed as a manufacturer of interactive gaming systems and as an interactive gaming service provider. These are the first such approvals issued in the United States by a regulatory authority.

In the upcoming months, many more interactive gaming applications will appear before Nevada’s Gaming Control Board and the Nevada Gaming Commission. However, there is still much work to be done before Internet poker “goes live” in Nevada.

By way of background, in December 2011, the Nevada Gaming Commission adopted several new regulations intended to govern Internet poker in Nevada. These regulations set forth three new classifications of license:

1. A manufacturer of interactive gaming systems license
2. An operator of interactive gaming license
3. A service provider license

The first two categories of licensure are rather selfexplanatory. A manufacturer’s license allows the holder to manufacture, assemble or produce an interactive gaming system, whereas an operator’s license lets the holder run an online gambling establishment and take bets online within Nevada. The scope of a service provider’s license, however, is less obvious and is currently a potential cause for confusion. (This article is written as of June 28, 2012.)

A service provider means a person who, in pertinent part:

I just got through reading that thing about service providers. It was very interesting but I was disappointed that affiliates will need to be licensed in order to promote these new online poker rooms when they go live.

I'm not even going to consider applying because if the government is involved, it probably has too many rules and will find something to deny the application just like it has all the others except for 1 so far.

I think the one approved marketing company is advertising land based casinos within the US, hotel information and it's basically paid advertising within the site.

Not the commission based system currently used offshore.

I haven't been advised to date that other types of licensed service providers can't offer affiliate programs, I should hear something moving forward. :)

There will be no rev share. There will be a CPA type system. PokerTrip Enterprises, parent company of Allvegas.com and ThePokerAtlas.com was recommended to receive approval to become the first licensed affiliate in US. That approval hearing is on Sept 20th.
