    Online casino Affiliate Market- is it worth the risk?
    Online Casino Industry is one hot potato after the arrests in USA of leading online bosses. Are you still interested to pursue the remaining market for the online casino affiliate industry?

    I'd stay far away from it.

    I believe that the US Online Casino industry will be thriving in a few years with home grown online casinos, my recommendation for what it is worth, is to hold on to anything you got or did before the US ban and recycle for when it comes back and is legalised and taxed.

    As I have said before on another thread, this will begin happening in 2009 when the new administration is sworn in. That does not mean, however, that I would add casino affiliates to any existing site (or even build new sites around gambling "merchants"). Mainstream merchants, search engines, etc. will still consider gambling links taboo. They have a seperate niche and the risks involved in intertwineing the two are too great.

    I have a friend that's been on the front lines of this, and I can tell you it's bad out there. The online market has basically shrunk to about 25% of what it was this same time last year.

    Lots of opportunities out there, but gambling will need to take some time to recover. And, don't expect the legislation to change any time soon. It was thrown in on a port security bill, so extracting that specific piece of legislation would be challenging.

    I hear ya and agree its a saturated market and affiliates all over must be feeling the squeeze. We followed what happened with absolute shock at the speed of that whole port authority bill, we knew some thing was coming but it all happened so fast. Do you think it could have been done differently? Or was there no other way?
