    Hey guys, yeah its sad day for me personally, I really wanted to see WBX succeed for both the company and all our affiliates. I'll still be around and will work to make everything go as smoothly as possible with fast payments and responses to emails as things wind down. If any affiliates have any questions you can reach me at affiliates@wbx.com or on Skype at p.arena.

    Also I'd like to again extend my thanks to everyone that promoted WBX, I found it to be a great experience working in this role and I truly appreciate all the hard work our affiliates put in. I hope that you find continued success with your websites, and hopefully I will find myself in a position to work with you again some day.

    It's a shame WBX couldn't compete but it was always going to be difficult.

    I was very impressed with Peter and a lot of the big sportsbooks could really do with some AMs like him.
    Good luck with the next chapter.

    I'm just curious what's gone wrong?
    Competition by BetdaQ ?? New star of SMARTEX ??
    Too much pressure of old bookmakers?

    By the way Peter, you promised good article for my site. Heh
    Have good landing.

    I am also sorry to see them go and Peter was an absolute pleasure to deal with. Any online casinos out there looking for a brilliant AM? I can highly recommend Peter.
    It is always sad to see a good operation close down but I have to also commend them on the way they are doing it so far - i.e With a reasonable explanation from the CEO and a promise to pay Affiliates and Players.
    Many casinos simply shut down with no explanation and the first we know is when our tracking links don't work....or worse - Take the bunch at Aff Europe who shut down and continue to operate their casinos and earn revenue from our players!

    Peter, what I have to do with this beautiful page about WBX?
    http://www.best-games-directory.com/...-exchange.html
    I do not want to delete such nice piece of content.
    Have idea to turn this page into small wiki page about WBX just to attract visitors looking for sports betting history.
    ... yeahhh, very good idea.

    Hi Gamer, yeah sorry about that we won't be getting any new betting articles prepared unfortunately with the close of the site.
    Also with registrations no longer being accepted at WBX I'll leave it to you to decide what to do with that page - you may want to add a note about the closure and offer alternatives for your traffic and link to other reviews? I appreciate the effort you put into the WBX review.
