    Default Need Advice!

    I want to know if I can deposit(with my personal credit card) for people who come to my website and want a freeroll for poker with Bodog. This way they have nothing to lose and they will join. I have seen sites such as www.yourpokercash.com where they also don't require a credit card. Thanks in advance.

    Welcome sy2088. I'm not sure I understand the question. You want to deposit for your visitors? Aren't freerolls free? I'm not familiar with poker but maybe some poker pros can help you out.

    The reason why it is a freeroll is because I will be paying for the deposit. Every time I refer a new sign up I get paid $100.00 by Bodog for every person who deposits a minimum of $20.00. I want to know if doing this is allowed.

    No. As far as I know, bringing in players in this manner is considered fraud and you could have your affiliate account shut down. It is not likely that if you have to deposit for your players, they will deposit themselves in the future. Therefore the casino/poker room cannot recoup their losses in paying you $100 per player. Being an affiliate is a partnership to benefit both parties not just one.

    I don't use cpa so someone correct me if I am wrong.

    Best of luck.

    Would you give me $100 every time I gave you $20, I don't think so. This is fraud and a reason why so many CPA deals have gone from bad to worse.

    ok thanks for the response. Can anyone explain to me how www.yourpokercash.com is giving away freerolls without the player making a deposit?

    Your Poker Cash is giving away free bankrolls not freerolls.
    This is obviously an incentive they have arranged with the poker rooms they promote.

    Hi Sy et al.

    YPC has been three years in the making with close contact and feedback from our partner pokerrooms. We undertake strict fraud prevention methods to insure we send quality legitimate traffic to our partner rooms. In addition we monitor our player traffic and stop giving free money to geo areas that tend to have higher rates of abuse. we also provide freerolls and cash incentives to our players who continually play and become winning poker players. YPC was the first site to offer freebankrolls at Absolute, UB, and FTP. There are only a few affiliates(1 other besides us) who were granted this deal from the 3 above poker rooms.

    Sy, i suggest you contact the affiliate managers wherever you would like to run this type of incentive. See what they have to say. They want you to send players as much as you do, just not when its a losing proposition to them. If you can present a strong enough case that your scheme will be a winning one, they will surely listen and be glad to help implement it. This is an ever evolving industry and one that has plenty of room for new ideas and the poker rooms love to work with affiliates on their new ideas and ventures as the relationship is win/win.

    We have setup the site pokeraffiliatesolutions.com that takes advantage of the deals, reputation, software, and contacts we have developed in this industry to help affiliates like yourself get these type of initiatives off the ground.

    best of luck to you!

    PAS
