GPWA Approved Portal

The GPWA Seal of Approval is awarded to gambling portal websites that meet our standards and that are affiliated with approved GPWA members who abide by the GPWA code of conduct.

The Seal of Approval signifies that the operator of the site is a current GPWA member in good standing who has agreed to abide by strict criteria designed to ensure that the highest ethical standards are upheld at all times and in all situations.

An investigative team headed by GPWA's Fair Gaming Advocate has determined that an approved portal website:
  • Is managed independently of the online gambling websites it provides information about or promotes.
  • Respects and upholds copyright standards.
  • Does not send spam email.
  • Does not use malicious search engine optimization techniques such as posting spam-like comments in forums and interactive blogs.
  • Does not promote or display pornography.
  • Provides consumers with information extending beyond banner advertisements and links.
  • Acts professionally and respectfully in its business activities.
