New Jersey state officials have continued the crackdown on operators promoting unlicensed internet gaming websites this week, by reprimanding LatestCasinoBonuses (LCB) for promotion infractions.
The decision is the latest move by the New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement (DGE) to restrict the promotion of illegal, offshore online gambling by affiliates across the state.
As reported by Gambling.com, the DGE issued an enforcement letter to LCB, warning of the consequences of violating the New Jersey Casino Control Act.
New Jersey only permits licensed, regulated betting sites, which means that affiliate sites such as LCB are not authorized to work alongside illegal offshore sites, nor act as a promoter for the sites.
The DGE has warned that websites featured across the LCB platform were breaching state and possibly federal law. DGE officials pointed out that LCB has potentially violated the Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act of 2006, by giving New Jersey players the chance to access illicit games.
The decision to clamp down on unlicensed gaming operators comes as no surprise following New Jersey’s decision to spearhead some of the US’s most dramatic legal gaming expansion measures.
The public scolding of LCB is the second major crackdown by the DGE, following the decision made by the Office of the Attorney General to ban OddsShark.com from working alongside any of the Garden State’s legal sportsbooks. This comes after the site was found to be illicitly affiliating with and promoting illegal offshore bookmakers.
This year’s Betting on Sports America will take place in New Jersey, where we will be discussing a number of topics relating to the newly liberalized market, including how the Garden State took the PASPA fight to the Government and won.
