    Welcome. However, you've missed the boat by about 10 years. So...I'll tell you, what most wont.

    Back when I started 20 years ago, there were no:

    • min player-quotas (reach min new-player quota and you get paid, don't reach it, you don't get paid)
    • high roller clauses (player wins10K+, he/she is corralled until the 10K+ is lost back to casino, you earn $0 on that player till then).
    • Absurd "Admin Fees", and others, what seem like, double dipping deductions. AKA bogus costs.


    There's a handful of old-timers like myself, who, are still running sites. When this gig was good, we'd be signing up 300+ new deposit players a month. However, now, well... if I manage 20 NDP's a month, I'm happy. The industry is literally saturated. New white label casinos are opening practically every month, yet, most end up going ass-up, with that so too does affiliate's commissions.

    The amount of fraud and theft by some programs is mind boggling.

    That doesn't include shaving etc. That by itself, is on the increase too.

    These new breed of casino programs are offering 40, 50 even 60% Rev Share. However, crunch the numbers, and the TRUE Rev Share %'s are sitting at the bottom of the barrel.

    EG - VideoSlots.com pay 40% but the actually TRUE % paid to affiliates is: 5.5% (thieving b#stards).

    It's a LOT of hard work to succeed in this gig, that's over and above to steep learning curve. If I was starting out now... I wouldn't, I'd find something else.

    I'm not trying to deter you, it's no skin off my nose if, you succeed or crash and burn. I merely believe in telling it like it is, and not sugar coating it. I'll leave you with this food for thought... If 100 newbies started today, in 12 months time, maybe 1 or 2 would remain. Maybe you'd be 1 of them. Who knows...

    Why am I still in it? Because unlike newbies etc, I have affiliate agreements with programs reaching back 10+ years or more. Agreements that don't include player quotas etc., etc., etc...

    Do the right thing, even when no one is looking. It's called integrity.

    Welcome to GPWA.

    My advice for what it is worth, is there is still room if you have something unique and niche. Don't repeat what others have done before you. A casino review site should be the last thing on your mind. If you're thinking that -- don't waste your time.

    Good luck.

    Just like the free bonus sites, free coupons, the list of all the umpteen dozen angles which have already been milked, dry. If that is your plan, I agree with nwalker... don't waste your time. However, if you have something 100% unique, that's never been done before, then you've got a chance.

    P.S. Just in case the thought is there... don't attempt to mix this with porn. No legit licensed/regulated program, will touch you with a barge pole.
