    Wrong
    and accepts players from every location worldwide except Malta.
    I just tried to register to play and the IP check said they were not taking any registrations from my country.

    So they do they take US Players or not?

    If an affiliate program is not small affiliate friendly (especially small US Affiliate), then they are NOT Affiliate Friendly!

    Thanks for noting that Rick. I'd based my statement on the restrictions listed in the YoY Poker Terms and Conditions, but had not tested directly. I have replicated the problem you experienced and discussed this with Silvia from their support live chat. She indicated that this is unintentional/a bug and that U.S. players should be accepted. She is going to have the tech team look into it.

    Here is an excerpt from the chat:
    Steven: The site does not accept players from Malta. A colleuge of mine also indicated he attempted to register from the United States and the IP verification said the site is not taking registrations from that country.
    Silvia: Malta is off,
    Silvia: that is correct
    Steven: US is off also?
    Silvia: I am not aware of restricitions from the States.
    Silvia: I know that there are restrictions about the manner of which deposits are done.
    Silvia: if you are from the States
    Steven: I am also based in the states and just attempted to register. I scrolled over "Get Started" in the main navigation bar, then selected "Quick Signup". I then received a notice indicating "Notice Unfortunately, we are currently not accepting any new players from your country."
    Silvia: One moment please.
    Steven: Could you check on this to identify if it is a short-term problem or if this is intentional?
    Silvia: No, I can tell you that it is definitely not intentional
    Silvia: if the ip shows Malta, it will not allow the person to register
    Silvia: I just went on the website,
    Silvia: and opened where you can deposit and the methods used
    Silvia: and it shows that you can use picĄclub, and it states clearely
    Silvia: that it is for US players.
    Silvia: we recommend pic'club and wiretransfers for Americans to do their deposites.
    Steven: Thank you for clarifying that I should be able to register. Could you have someone on the technical team follow up on the unintended notice about restrictions from the U.S. and then once it is resolved contact me ot let me know it is changed?
    Silvia: as they cannot use credit card.
    Silvia: May I have your email address please_
    Steven: steven@gpwa.org
    Silvia: Thanks,
    Steven: Full name is Steven Corfman
    Silvia: I will copy this chat to my supervisor and she will forward to appropriate department.

    Thanks for clearing that up, if you do not take US Players, your terms should state that.
