New Jersey Regulators Ban OddsShark

The New Jersey’s Division of Gaming Enforcement has effectively banned the affiliate betting site OddsShark from doing business in the state’s online gambling market. The division found that the site was promoting illegal websites not licensed in the state.

New Jersey’s Division of Gaming Enforcement has taken severe action against affiliate betting site Oddsshark for promoting brands that offer unlicensed internet gaming and sports betting to New Jersey residents.

The division said it reviewed the OddsShark website and found that along with promotional links to authorized New Jersey sports betting sites, the website also promoted Bovada, BetOnline and 5Dimes, all of which are unlicensed in the state.

The division said affiliate marketers cannot operate in New Jersey’s licensed market while continuing to serve illegal offshore operators. The division’s ruling states that all New jersey licensed sites must cease doing business with OddsShark regardless if the site is also promoting their online platform.

The division said it has also referred the matter to New Jersey’s Division of Criminal Justice.
