    Default Who Exactly Is Taking UK Players

    This is so confusing to me

    Can anyone tell me what brands have got the licensing and take UK player registrations or allow existing UK players to continue?

    Thanks in advance.

    I'm pretty sure I read somewhere that all of Renee's brands are and will continue to take UK players at Rewards Affiliates.

    Not sure if applied for automatically means been given a license for all the C-Rewards brands.

    Seems weird to me why cant other programs apply if it is that "easy" ?

    Still taking your UK traffic :

    - 32Red
    - Betway (split from Wagershare ; obviously they have know this for a long time and once RB+WGS are merged affiliates would lose their entire UK database to Betway)

    IMO these moves are very fishy!

    I am interested in the same question. I have been told, 32red, Coral, Betfair, BetFred and Bet365 but am waiting on confirmation. I know 32Red is good to go.

    and that is exactly the problem I have with them as they use first referrer in their cookies besides that converting players is uber difficult despite their second to no one reputation .... . So whenever go that route you need a ton of luck !

    It is not as simple as that unfortunately.
    I have an idea why these guys are not applying for the license for all of their brands, but it is just my opinion so I could be wrong.

    We have applied for the license for all of our brands. I have just found this morning that the UKGC is inundated with applications, so the approval of licenses will take some time and therefore we will have a continuation license until the time our application has been processed.

    If there are changes to be made before we are granted the license, we will go ahead with them as we are committed to continue our operations in the UK.

    It should be noted that in December there will be a 15% tax applied to all UK revenue too which may affect why some operators have decided not to go ahead with a UK license at all.

    Cheers

    WBX is fully licensed in UK so there won't be any changes on our end for our affiliates.

    IN :

    All my major UK bookmaker brands are continuing ... Bet365 (who are uk based anyway), Ladbrokes, BetFred, BetVictor, Coral, PaddyPower, BetFair

    Talk is Betway are continuing ... but I've not received anything from them saying so.
    And WBX have confirmed that they're ready (see above) while I was typing.

    Some standalone casino groups are also getting licensed : Casino Rewards, 32Red.

    All of these properties are top-notch and I'm not surprised to see them continue.

    I've directly asked DublinBet, Interwetten, Betsson and MyBet ... no answer yet.

    Other properties (that I don't cover) that I'd expect to continue are StanJames, WillHill, ToteSports, BoyleSports, SportingBet.
    Others that may continue : 888sport, Winner, Betbright, TitanBet, UniBet, Bwin

    These sites have too much invested in the UK sports betting market to be considering dropping - and they do offer casino, poker and other gambling segments.

    ----------------------------------

    OUT :

    From what I've read several brands have decided that a 15% tax on gross profits is too much to deal with and make a profit and they are not going to continue with UK punters ... PinnacleSports (wow!), Buffalo (which includes SpinPalace, Ruby Fortune etc), StarPartners.

    PinnacleSports runs very high odds lines in their sportsbook, and I can (almost) understand their thinking although dropping what will clearly be their biggest market again (after dropping the US in 200 is another sign of their slow decline into irrelevance. I suspect the owner is just tired of the game.

    As for BuffaloPartners, StarPartners and all the other small properties that are dropping out of the UK market - it seems business suicide to me as it must be a significant part of their business. If they really cannot absorb the 15% gross betting proifts charge then they probably should not be running anyway.

    Gooner, does this apply to Great Britain and Ireland, excluding Scotland? I'm just curious if you knew how the recent changes affect the markets.

    The plans for UK licensing have proceeded without consideration to the Scottish independence referendum. If there's a 'Yes' vote tomorrow we'll have to wait and see if it beings any changes to the meaning of any licenses issued but that would take a long while anyway.

    Maybe I'll have to relocate from sunny Gibraltar to breezy Edinburgh!

    Scotland are 5.3 million - compared to around 53 million in England. (3m in Wales and around 1.5m in N.Ireland).

    A yes vote will subject Scotland to 2nd rate European business status - outside the UK / Pound and outside the EU / Euro ...
    WTF will the Scots use for currency/trade? Goats?


    Seriously though - I expect Scotland to (just) vote to stay with the United Kingdom.

    If there is a vote to seperate then it will take a couple of years to work through I reckon.

    Gooner on your site you have marked spin palace as not open for UK players, this does not stop the average Joe to click on the banner/link.

    I can not simulate if he will be redirect to Betway with or without aff id.

    just a heads up!

    buffalopartners has also paid the wrong amount as they converted 1,362 USD for 1 EURO

    check your stats and ewallet and do the calculation.

    checked with another affiliate and I am right.

    seems somebody from accounting made a typing error !

    Betway UK has a pending application for their license according to the UK gambling commission.

    For what it's worth I got this notification from Pinnaclesports. It looks like they really are pulling out of UK:

    RE: Notice of closure of British player accounts

    Hello,
    Due to changes to British gambling licensing regulations, Pinnacle Sports will, after September 30th 2014, be unable to offer our services in Great Britain.

    What will happen to British account holders?
    Any bets placed up to and including September 30th will be honoured.
    All account options for British betting accounts other than withdrawal will be blocked after September 30th, 2014.
    Funds remaining in Pinnacle Sports accounts may be withdrawn at any time, free of charge.

    What this means for our affiliates:
    All affiliates will not be permitted to display any advertising of Pinnacle Sports in Great Britain.
    All banners, text links, landing pages, logos and any marketing materials of any kind promoting Pinnacle Sports must be GEO targeted to NOT display to British ip addresses.
    Affiliates need to stringently follow this rule and failure to do so could include being removed from our affiliate programme.
    Any existing British betting accounts that affiliates have tagged to their accounts will be closed and removed.
    All affiliates based in Great Britain will still be able to promote Pinnacle Sports outside of Great Britain.
    All affiliates based in Great Britain will still earn commissions for players tagged to their accounts from outside Great Britain.
    Affiliates based in Great Britain who are paid into betting accounts can still use these accounts for withdrawing purposes only.
    We apologise for the inconvenience this causes you, and thank you for your continued support affiliating with Pinnacle Sports. Should we obtain a British gambling licence in the future we will let you know.
    If you have any questions about this or would like to discuss anything about your account then please do contact us at affiliates(at)pinnaclesports(dot)com !

    We will definitely be going for a license in the UK.

    We applied for the license and are continuing to accept players from the UK.

    If you are interested in promoting Royal Panda i'm available on Skype: rpaffiliates or send me a PM on GPWA. If you want to know what we do take a look here: RP Affiliates. As we speak we are getting the pound as a payment method for Royal Panda so that area is covered.

    Regards,

    Onno van 't Hoff
