    Question What gambling markets that you are not in today would you consider promoting?

    There are lots of different gambling and related vertical markets. Often sites specialize on only one or a small number of these vertical markets such as casinos, poker, bingo, sports betting, etc.

    For this week's poll I thought it would be interesting to ask what verticals you are most likely to expand into in the future.

    And tell us why you are thinking of expanding into each of the verticals you select as possible new areas of focus.

    I'd really like to get into the Forex market. I think the main reason, apart from many successful affiliates making decent money, is that I've always had an interest in the financial markets. I'm not into currency really, more stocks but I think I could make the transition fairly quickly and it's always easier writing about things you understand and enjoy.

    I believe I have too much development to even dream about another vertical. I am involved with many of those listed already and think that I best focus on perfection of the current before playing with another.

    If I consider a new vertical it will be away from gambling related genres.

    It's ironic forex is listed as a gambling vertical. One big debate I always seem to get into is whether or not the stock market is legal gambling.

    If I were to diversify - I would go forex.

    Skill gaming is my other choice - it's a completely different genre and appeals to a wide audience.

    The industry had join hand to make poker as an legal casino game. Anyone agrees about the issue. Throughout the US, they begun promoting the legality of it and the higher bodies as well as the socialites, including top celebrities not only in Hollywood but those business tycoon too.

    I am thinking of adding Mahjong to our list of vertical markets, but currently I have no time for a new market.

    Default Poker is the King

    I think Poker is one of the most exciting markets to promote.
    lot's of TV shows and the trend is always growing.
    poker is my choice.

    Mahjong for me also, i love that game but suspect that there are geographical issues, i dont know too much about that the online market involving this game so i could easily be wrong here,

    Would need to research it some but guess its more an Asian facing game as opposed to European or even USA

    Forex is definitely one I am interested in especially after speaking to affiliates and operators I know in this market - Its certainly competitive but it is also worth a shed load of money!! I have a couple of sessions filmed from Amsterdam and will get those up in the next two weeks

    Another market I am also interested in is Backgammon....anyone promoting that?

    Yes, I do. Please don't waste your time in this market. I build a backgammon website some years ago, and now it reaches over 300 unique visitors daily. Earning are very marginal, varying between $0 and $200 a month.... Not worth the effort!

    I think forex is the right choice to go with here. I started with forex this year and the results are promising. The other day, I had a new trader that raked me almost $3000 in two weeks time. Way better than backgammon!
