The New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement has posted an Internet Gaming FAQ that includes some new information on how branded skins will be regulated.
Branded skins are an issue NJ Gaming Enforcement Director David Rebuck has been focusing a lot of time on lately, as he alluded to in a recent interview with Global Gaming Business. The new FAQ posting on the subject confirms Rebuck’s earlier statements and read as follows:
Branded skins with payment models other than revenue sharing will be required by the Division to be either vendor registered, or licensed as an Ancillary or licensed as a Casino Service Industry Enterprise…For purposes of the July 29th filing deadline, operators of branded skins which use a payment model other than a share of revenue should file a vendor registration form and a copy of their agreement.
From the sounds of the regulations, and Rebuck’s previous comments, most casino affiliates who want to do business in New Jersey will be covered under the rules governing the, Ancillary Casino Service Industry Enterprise License.
In the past, Rebuck has suggested that a revenue threshold could be put in place for affiliate licensing but, so far, that threshold hasn’t made its way into the regulations.
