    Gambling Portal Webmasters Association (GPWA) Awards Over 230
    Seals of Approval

    NEWTON, MA – July 11, 2007 – The Gambling Portal Webmasters Association (https://www.gpwa.org), the only professional association of its kind, has awarded “Approved Portal Seals” to over 230 of its member websites.

    Steven Corfman, GPWA Program Manager, stated, “Players are looking for sites they can trust, and honorable webmasters deserve to differentiate themselves from rogue operators. The Seal of Approval program provides the distinction these webmasters deserve, and gives consumers the information and assurance to make critical decisions about who is reputable and who to skip past. We are excited about the success of the Seal program and look forward to continued growth.”

    The GPWA Approved Portal Seal lets players know that the designated site is managed independently of the sites it provides information about or promotes; that it respects and upholds copyright standards; that it does not send spam email, use unethical search-engine-optimization techniques, or promote or display pornography; that it provides consumers with information extending beyond banner ads and links; and that it acts professionally and respectfully in its business activities.

    The Gambling Portal Webmasters Association was founded in May 2001 as an organization that promotes responsible gaming, strengthen relationships between affiliate program managers and portal webmasters, and give its members a way to collaborate with other webmasters. The GPWA’s 5,000+ members communicate and share information in over 80 forums, with 27,000 threads and 190,000 posts. In July 2006, the GPWA was acquired by Casino City, the world’s largest provider of casino and gaming information.

    The traffic sorting feature for the portals listing is purely based on Alexa data. For portal with the same alexa ranking alphabetical listing is used as a secondary sorting criteria.

    Portals with alexa rankings below a certain reliability threshold are treated as not ranked, which results in those portals being listed alphabetically. The alexa rankings relative to other GPWA portals are included in the listing, and those sites without a number indicated are below the threshold. This is what is happening with your site (www.GamesIncorporated.com) -- other portals that also don't show a rank on GPWA are showing up higher because of the alphabetical sorting.

    Hi Michael

    How do I apply for approval? I have followed the procedure, but no response. Maybe I am doing something wrong.

    Hi Spin21,

    We have received your private membership application and I will make a note that you'd like to apply for the seal as well. I apologize for the lack of response. Your application is in progress, although I expect it will take some time before the review team is able to complete it.

    Your initial application didn't mention if you wanted all your site reviewed for the seal or only some of the sites. Please send me a private message indicating which ones you'd like included in the seal review.


    Thanks,
    Steven

    Default Congratz!

    Well done to all those whose casino portals have been approved and carry the "appoved portal" seal!

    Hopefully one day our site would also be included in the list of approved portals.

    All the best Cass
