    Promoting gambling programs?
    Does anyone (in the USA) do anything with gambling promotions?

    If I understand correctly, accepting money for advertising of these is technically illegal...then again, so is gambling itself, but that has grown uninhibited for many many years. However, there are fewer people running advertisements than people actually gambling (methinks), and more money at stake for the advertising...

    My question is this: does anyone promote gambling sites? Have you ever run into any issues? Which ones are reputable? The CPAs are incredibly high, but we just want to make sure we get paid, and that we're not going to have the money seized or anything...

    Thanks,

    Alex

    Last thing first : I wouldn't bother with CPA deals for online gambling, except - maybe - for Poker. You will make less money in the long run.

    Secondly : the legality of it all - it's a grey area but 'gambling' itself is clearly not illegal in the USA. The only restrictive legislation concerns gambling via telephone wires (the wire act) which is being used by the US government to effective make online gambling a criminal offense.

    It's up to you whether you feel that you can promote online gambling or not. You will, of course, be paid if you choose the right online casinos, sportsbooks, etc. to promote.

    If you want to send me a private message, I can point you in the direction of some reliable affiliate programs.

    I promote gambling myself, but I'm not located in the US. I just want to state that I would not even promote poker via CPA. Poker players are very loyal and at partypoker for example, the CPA is $75 I think, but the average value of each player using a percentage of rake is about $150 to $200, so big difference in the long run!

    Also, gambling is a very grey area, and I know many people, in the US, that still do promote online gambling. Each year, some congressmen try to pass a law about online gambling, but it never passes, so the industry is still very unregulated in the US.

    Also, there are many very reliable gambling programs out there that will pay you like clockwork! Just try to stick to the bigger and more well known ones. Also make sure to read their Terms & Conditions carefully before signing up to avoid any surprises.

    Hi,

    Looks like I can't send a PM I'm still a "newbie" (classification) so looks like I am prohibited from sending PMs. How can I overcome this hurdle?

    Is there another way I can reach you? Wanted to ask about the best/reliable gambling sites for promotion.

    We currently have accounts with PartyPoker and Cassava (888) but haven't really run anything yet...

    Thanks,

    Alex
