Some Thoughts About Black Friday

May 5, 2011 · Posted in Poker News, Poker Online · Comment 

As an affiliate of all of the indicted companies, I must say that I have no sympathy to their legal plights. With the exception of PokerStars, who have more or less been upfront and aboveboard to deal with, Full Tilt Poker and Absolute Poker/UB have been a complete nightmare. As an affiliate, I always felt that I was being robbed by these companies. I could very rarely get any answers to my queries, and I just kept seeing my commissions disappearing, no matter how many new players I signed up.

Other, smaller gaming companies that I have dealt with have been much more honest and helpful, eager to treat their affiliates well. But Full Tilt and AP/UB… the worst. However much I hate that the USA doesn’t clearly clarify the legality online gambling, with no clear statutes, and has taken the extreme action of seizing these domains (creating a bit of a PR nightmare for them, I’ve heard), I still have very little sympathy for these companies. Thieves, when they are caught, always make victims happy. A feeling of retribution. I have felt victimized by these companies, and as such, it feels like justice being served. And I hate that. If they had been a bit more honest and responsive, and a lot less greedy, I’d most certainly be on their side in this fight. But as far as I’m concerned, they can dangle in the wind. Good riddance. Perhaps the online gaming industry will consolidate and become more reputable with these rogues out of the picture. Perhaps, at long last, the US will finally start legalizing and regulating online poker, state by state, and then at the federal level. One can only hope. To not do so is to basically make all of the millions of online poker players into criminals. And that’s just insane.
