Due to the imminent passing of the Federal Unlawful Gambling Enforcement Act on September 30th, we are no longer accepting wagers from residents in the United States.
We regret to inform you that from 11am EST on 3rd October 2006, we will be closing all US gaming accounts. Player’s balances, minus uncleared bonuses, will be returned to players within the next 3 - 4 weeks by check and you will cease to earn revenue share from these players in the future.
PartnerLogic and all of its brands will still be operating at full strength in markets outside of the USA. These markets have been our fastest growing in the past two years, and we very much look forward to working with you to grow other non-US Global markets even faster.
In our view, offering online gaming affiliate services is still allowed, so long as you do not earn a revenue share from referring players residing in the US. Therefore, your PartnerLogic account will remain open. I must however clearly state that you are not permitted to use this account for any wagering (i.e. playing at InterCasino, VIP Casino, InterBingo or InterPoker ). If you do wager with your account, it will be immediately closed and you will forfeit any affiliate payments otherwise payable to you.
In the next few days we will be offering you a number of tools and services to assist you in marketing to selected International territories, all of which the PartnerLogic team has a wealth of knowledge in.
As the world’s oldest and most respected online casino, we very much hope that in the medium term, the USA will see fit to license and regulate online gaming. In the meantime, we will celebrate InterCasino’s 10th birthday on the 23rd November 2006 with our growing International player base and our loyal affiliate partners.
