CAP Glossary


UIGEA stands for Unlawful Internet Gambling and Enforcement Act of 2006, which was integrated in to the Safe Port Act in September of 2006. The UIGEA directly influences many of the online casinos as well as their ability to provide online gambling services to US customers. Most of the UIGEA actually centers around the ability for funds to be deposited or extracted from US funds to and from offshore gambling businesses. It is important that as an online casino affiliate, especially operating from the US, you understand the UIGEA and comply with it's requirements. There is lots of information on the UIGEA within the Casino Affiliate Programs forums.
