    Lightbulb GPWA and APCW are now sister organizations

    I'm very pleased to announce that Casino City, who has operated the GPWA for a little over two years now, acquired the APCW (the Association of Players, Casinos and Webmasters APCW.org) on October 17th. This makes the GPWA and the APCW new sister organizations.

    Personally, I'm very excited that the GPWA will now be working very closely with the APCW, and with J.Todd who everyone should know from the APCW Perspectives Weekly videos, and Anthony who handles both promotion of the APCW Perspectives Weekly videos and APCW audits.

    One of the first fruits of our recent acquisition of the APCW is that J.Todd attended and filmed all of the sessions at the GPWA Conference we held in London yesterday. Our plan is to make the videos of those sessions available on the web for all to see.

    Be sure to watch this week's APCW Perspectives Weekly video on You Tube to see the video announcement of the acquisition from APCW.

    This is great news and solid business strategy for both parties.

    J Todd has always been under funded and under staffed. This partnership will allow him to perform deeper audits and lengthier investigations. He has been one of the true "player advocates" in this industry, it's great to see Casino City putting their financial muscle behind his efforts.

    I applaud Michael Corfman and Casino City for having the foresight to recognize J Todd's value and integrity.

    We all know how much controversy JT stirs up on occasion, now that he has the backing of Casino City, I can't wait to see him really stir the pot! The future videos should be very entertaining and even more enlightening.

    I think that was a great move for both GPWA and APCW. I think J.Todd will be really dangerous with more backing! lol

    Hello all!

    Thanks so much for the very warm reception. I know I don't post here much (I really don't post ANYwhere that much due to time) but I think that will all be changing soon. Both Anthony and I are very excited about this merger, and with working with everyone over here.

    Two weeks ago I flew out from Seattle to Houston for our Hurricane Ike project, then on to Costa Rica for a few days, then to Boston, and finally into London this past Wednesday. I just got home last night and am already off again this morning to Las Vegas for the WSOP and the G2E. I thnk it's all finally caught up with me as I have no voice this morning! LOL! That may actually be a GOOD thing for some of my close friends! LMAO!

    Look for a lot of very aggressive and expanding activity on our part!

    Mr. Corfman, will the GPWA now be handling the Gambling Wages, and
    other player/casino/affiliates issues that APCW started, or is it still up
    to APCW to continue?

    Our plans are to increase the level of resources behind auditing efforts to be more than the APCW has recently been able to do on its own. It is likely that the APCW will remain the primary public face under which the auditing process and results will be published because that is consistent with the mission of the APCW. However, I expect there will also be very strong visibility for these efforts within the GPWA.

    In terms of Gambling Wages, I think it will be extremely important for us to monitor the behavior there and to make sure that any issues that arise are properly addressed, or to publish the fact that they are not properly addressed should that be the case.

    Many believe the history at Gambling Wages is one that should never be put in the past, and that is certainly a position that is the safe one. And one I can respect from a player protection perspective.

    Certainly the APCW has helped to facilitate a number of actions and statements on the part of Gambling Wages that are steps in a positive direction, and while that is a positive sign, there is a lot of history to overcome, and that history is something that should not be whitewashed and cannot be forgotten overnight even if all the issues from the past really have been addressed and will not recur.

    The positive thing we can do here is to be a force for transparency, and to be a conduit for creating visibility for any current good and bad behavior and in so doing create an environment where there is substantially increased accountability for improper treatment of players or affiliates.

    I saw Perspectives Weekly on Friday and saw the announcement about the merger. I meant to get over here sooner to post, but hard to find time these days.

    A big congratulations to Casino City, J. Todd, Mr. Corfman, and GPWA. This is a great benefit to all players and affiliates. J. Todd and his auditor have done so much for this industry and now they will be able to expand on this which is deeply deserved.

    I wish everyone luck in this great venture! I see many great things in the near future!!
