    Unhappy BetUS GPWA Sponsorship Suspended

    The GPWA has suspended listing BetUS as a sponsor program because their lack of response to important affiliate questions violated the GPWA code of conduct. It is our hope that BetUS will resume communicating with us and other webmasters in the forums and satisfactorily answer the questions that have been raised. For now, the BetUS forum has been moved to the "Other Affiliate Programs" section so affiliates can continue to share information about the program.

    The principal thread in which discussion among GPWA members occurred prior to the suspension is: BetUS (GPWA benefits suspended). This is a long thread with containing over 200 posts.

    To summarize some of the information presented in the thread:

    1. BetUS partners has become non-responsive to requests by the GPWA for information about the program.
    2. The BetUS Poker and Casino site are reportedly now excluded from the BetUS Partner affiliate program.
    3. The no-negative carryover rule that was previously in place has been dropped and negative earnings are now carried forward.
    4. Payments for March have been made, but not payments for April or May at this point in time.
    5. Affiliate reporting stats have not been available for several weeks, but it is reported they should be available again in about a week.
    6. After BetUS announced that no new U.S. players would be accepted there was a period of time where new U.S. players were accepted but not credited to affiliates, but, at the present time, new U.S. players are no longer accepted.

    It should be added that yesterday we got emails with April player activity, and looks like those payments are going out (I personally was in the negative for April so not expecting payment).

    HOWEVER:

    The email says casino and poker is being "removed from the partner program" and negative rollover now applies. I would say all this adds up to BetUS probably closing their affiliate program outright soon.

    I think they were talking about the download casino. Marketing tools for BetUs' Instant Play Casino are still online.

    They are also still displaying their GPWA badge on their partners.betus.com website & linking this page:
    https://www.gpwa.org/affiliate-program/betus-partners

    GPWA should put the appropriate content about this program (warning future affiliates)
