Online Poker Affiliate Programs in New Jersey Won’t Allow Rakeback Deals

Many of today’s online poker affiliate programs offer rake back as a means of building a site’s business but rakeback offers will be prohibited in the state of New Jersey.

Such deals on the Web today tend to allow for between 25 percent to 35 percent rakeback and are typically administered by a third party such as poker room affiliates or dedicated rakeback websites.  Think of the rakeback system as similar to that of a casino comp program whereby gamblers are rewarded with comped rooms and food based on their volume of play.

PartyPoker.com, the first online poker site in New Jersey to roll out an affiliate program, doesn’t see it this way. 

Their rules explicitly prohibit any type of what they deem to be “rake-back schemes”

You’ll find this provision in their Terms and Conditions section:

3.2.9 Offer any so-called rake-back schemes or similar that offer or allow a proportion of the player's rake to be returned to the player in any form.

Online poker affiliates are required to obtain a vendors license prior to entering into a partnership agreement with licensed Internet gambling sites in New Jersey.  Affiliates are those who receive a percentage of revenue derived from referred players.
