    The domino effect is starting to collapse the entire online gambling industry as the Credit Card companies refuse to honor payments for online gambling debts. The software behind most sites was made by Cryptologic which just tanked. The only news releases on their site still show the PR spin and huge stock potential. Net result is all the casino spammers and the Ad agencies supporting them are going to to hell in a hand basket.

    Las Vegas Sun, David Strow - June 7, 2001

    "In the business of actually creating the online casinos, a leading company is CryptoLogic, one of the only Internet gaming companies to trade on the Nasdaq exchange. CryptoLogic is the creator of Internet casinos operated by such names as William Hill, one of the UK's largest sports books, and Jupiter Ltd., Australia's largest casino operator ... CryptoLogic is now gearing up to take its product to Las Vegas and apply for a Nevada license."
    Toronto Star, Dana Flavelle - June 6, 2001

    "Online gambling companies just became a better bet for investors. Nevada state legislators have endorsed the first-ever online gambling law in the United States, increasing the odds of success for casino software makers like Toronto's CryptoLogic Inc."
    New York Times, Technology Briefing - June 6, 2001

    "Shares of Cryptologic Inc., which sells software that lets people place bets over the Internet, rose as much as 17 percent after the Nevada Legislature voted to allow the state's casinos to offer online gambling. The stock climbed $3.89, or 17.3 percent, to $26.41. Nevada's proposal, which must be approved by Gov. Kenny Guinn, would allow resort-size casinos in the state to apply for online gambling licenses."

    Good bye revenue for casino gambling affiliates.

    I've always refused to promote gambling sites, because I think it's dirty money. In fact, it's not too strong to call it blood money, if you know what a gambling addition can do to a family.

    My stance has been, "Yeah, it might happen anyway, but it will happen without me."

    In correspondence with someone who wanted me to promote a casino on my site, they made reference to the expensive luxuries I could buy with all the easy money I'd earn. Heh heh ... one could make a case that a clean conscience is the most expensive luxury of all!

    Hi Elizabeth,

    Yep I have to agree with you 110%! [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif[/img]

    Besides sleeping at night (as little as we do get) far outweights the promise of luxuries from other peoples misery!

    I got a lot of e-mail feedback from Revnews.com when I predicted Referback would fold owing affiliates money just like the cruisesweeps.com site. Seems the organizer for Affiliateforce 2002 cruise is involved up to his ears. He put a lot of effort into this but choise the wriong players for the podiums. Should have had Andy from TigerDirect in a prime spot. Since casino Ads were the #1 money maker for the Ad Brokers during the Christmas shopping spree I'm glad they have to seek out another verticle market to exploit with banners popups and spam.

    "they made reference to the expensive luxuries I could buy with all the easy money I'd earn~Elisabeth"

    Not to mention the fact that claims making "easy money" usually are made by crooked programs. And when they start talking about "expensive luxuries" it's definitely time to hit X! Claims like that are designed to get people to stop thinking...which is a big red flag!

    I have to agree as well. I dumped all gambling links several months ago. Didn't make a dime with it. And this was because my visitors just were not interested. But, my wake-up call came when I was rejected by a merchant because of the Casino page. I've only been rejected one other time - because I had the word(s) LensExpress on my site.
