    Question Are you a licensed affiliate in the United States or Canada?

    To work as an affiliate with operators licensed to offer online gaming within the United States you must register with the government agency in each state that regulates gambling within the state (there is no national registration). And to work with a licensed Ontario operator in Canada you must register with the Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario. Depending on state and province regulations, and the type of affiliate registration you elect, the process of becoming a licensed affiliate can be fairly straightforward, or it can be quite burdensome and expensive. For example, registration in New Jersey as an affiliate that can be paid on a revenue share basis requires background checks, fingerprints, and payment of a licensing application fee of $5,000. And that only authorizes you to work as an affiliate with New Jersey operators acquiring players that are physically located in New Jersey. New Jersey is an extreme example, but serves to illustrate the challenges that can face affiliates in working with licensed operators.

    For this week’s poll, I ask if you are or plan to become a licensed affiliate in any U.S. state or in Ontario in Canada. In addition to voting in the poll, please share your thoughts on becoming a licensed affiliate in any jurisdictions.

    At this point I would advise people to not get licensed and skip the US market unless you have massive traffic to offer and can leverage that into deals with operators.

    Getting licensed means nothing, operators are increasingly unwilling to work with small affiliates.

    Agreed, this statement counts for other markets too. Some operators (mainly the big ones) always seem to overlook the small guys. But they forget that a seedling can grow into a massive tree, and when they want some of the fruit, they get a polite go f yourself.
