Another Online Casino Affiliate Program Goes Bust

Blue Square is closing its "old affiliate system".  The question begs... was it too good, or too bad?  

"For my money there's less than a dozen gaming, igaming and sports betting affiliate programs worth joining on a global scale," says Greg Tingle of Media Man Int.  "That's why Media Man also does media, PR and other business ventures.  There's so much room for improvement in the affiliate sector its not funny."

In Las Vegas NCAA Tournament Really is March Madness

BY Rich O'Malley, NY DAILY NEWS STAFF WRITER

Last year, for the first time in six years, I did the responsible thing.

I stayed home.

Every year since 2003, I had religiously made my pilgrimage to Las Vegas - including once BY MYSELF when everyone bailed on me - to watch the first weekend of the NCAA Tournament at various sportsbooks along The Strip.

But last year, I purchased a house with my wife, so I did what any sane, married 30-something who had just bought a house would do.

Online Gambling Would Welcome Rush Limbaugh to Costa Rica

Radio host Rush Limbaugh has suggested that should President Obama's health plan sail through Congress, he will pack up his things and move to Costa Rica. 

Limbaugh has chosen the perfect destination.  The online gambling industry set up shop in this Central American paradise during the mid-1990's.  Since that time operators have gone on to opening their own restaurants and constructing office buildings.  Limbaugh won't have any difficulty broadcasting his radio show out of CR either with all those enormous satellite dishes sitting on the properties of sportsbooks.
