CAP Online Gambling Affiliate Show Seen as Disaster

Gambling911.com is learning Monday that the Casino Affiliate Programs (CAP) event, which took place this past weekend in London, could have provided a fatal blow to what has been among the most prestigious organizations of its kind.

Friday witnessed a series of altercations, one involving CAP co-organizer, Lou Fabiano, whereby he challenged a competitor to fight "outside".  J. Todd, who runs the APWA arm of the Gambling Portal Webmasters Association, has been critical of CAP's affiliation with rogue online poker room CardSpike in recent weeks. 

The more serious of events occurred when the son of GPWA President, Michael Corfman, was assaulted in the lobby by three security guards.  Numerous eyewitness accounts provided to Gambling911.com confirmed Corfman's son, Steven, was unnecessarily "kneed" and "shouldered" by the guards for no apparent reason. 

The Affiliate Manager for Intertops reportedly left the event early out of disgust.  But by Sunday a number of these online gambling enterprises expressed a commitment to appear at CAP's Amsterdam event in May (not to be confused with the Casino Affiliate Conference or CAC that takes place in Amsterdam next month). 

Initially banned from attending the CAP event, Korfman and his crew were later provided with passes and allowed to enter without further incident.

J. Todd publicly thanked poker affiliates for their support over the past weekend.

"I just wanted to pop in and say "thank you" for the support and unity you guys have shown on this issue. It's great to see that we, as a community, have said together that we will not tolerate these sorts of "business practices". I hope this is the beginning of a new era for the industry."

The weekend concluded on a high note for a number of online gambling affiliates who reported record numbers of signups for the Super Bowl.  Gambling911.com had its biggest traffic day since the Kentucky Derby last May, though the final tally would not become official until Monday morning.
