The GPWA Affiliate Program Sponsors Seal: What it Means for You, the Player

Saturday, September 18th, 2010

gpwa1Grande Vegas Casino was in the news recently, including a write-up here on the OCS blog. Just a refresher: Two lucky players were awarded an all-expenses-paid trip to the famous Foxwoods Casino Resort in Connecticut. If that isn’t giving away business, I don’t know what is!

Anyhow, Grande Vegas has been an approved online casino here at OCS for about a year now. Besides meeting all of our minimum requirements for a listing in our online casino reviews directory, Grande Vegas has a few other accreditations under it’s belt, and I thought it would be a perfect time to talk about one of these accreditations right now.

Introducing the Gambling Portal Webmasters Association (GPWA). For all you players who don’t happen to be affiliates of online casinos, the GPWA is a non-profit, professional organization composed of webmasters working in the online gambling industry. With over 10,000 members, the GPWA is the largest and most active organization of its kind. Free to join, the GPWA is financially supported via affiliate program sponsorship.

In essence, what the GPWA does is give online casino affiliates (such as yours truly) a union-like power that allows affiliates to wield their powerful influence in the online marketing sector. It also helps affiliates secure more favorable financial deals and ensure timely payment of commissions and advertising revenue.

That said, it’s reassuring to know that Grande Vegas Casino is a member and sponsor of the Gambling Portal Webmasters Association, boasting the GPWA Seal on their website. Just as affiliates are upheld to high standards of responsible affiliate marketing, sponsor online casinos are held to a similar Code of Conduct. The provisions of which include the following:

– Abide by all regulatory and licensing laws of the jurisdiction in which business takes place.

– Does not engage in deceitful or misleading promotional marketing or boast false accreditations and business practices.

– Publicly discloses all rules and registration guidelines pertaining to players and affiliates.

– Does not engage in unethical marketing practices.

– Processes withdrawals and payments in accordance with published T&C’s.

– Promptly responds to and handles complaints by affiliates for both affiliate issues and those submitted by players of affiliates.

– Accepts responsibility for complying with the above terms.

If you are a player and reading this, you should know that you are in good hands when you play at a GPWA approved online casino. You are in even better hands, when you find an affiliate site, such as yours truly, Online Casino Suite, that publishes a recommendation to play at said online casino. In other words, if you have a complaint about Grande Vegas Casino, or any casino listed on our site – okay, any casino period šŸ™‚ – please register at our player’s forum and post your complaint here:

Grande Vegas Casino Awards Two Trips to Foxwoods Casino Resort

Grande Vegas Online Casino is just giving the business away!

Grande Vegas Online Casino is just giving the business away!

As reported earlier, here at OCS, Grande Vegas online casino has been set to give away two all-expense-paid trips to the famous Foxwoods tribal casino in Connecticut. Entering every single player into the raffle draw (who made at least one real money wager inside the online casino this Summer), Grande Vegas has just unveiled the lucky winner.

Published via a Lyceum Media press release, the news should have some head’s turning by now. It’s one thing to announce a promotion and illicit participation from players. It’s another thing altogether when said promotion has come to fruition and there is a reaction from the lucky winners.

Sure enough, the two lucky winners (Sheila S. from New York and Taylor C. from California) had something to say about their good fortune. Sheila S. said, “My husband is ecstatic about going to Foxwoods but I bet he’ll be spending more time on the golf course than in the casino!”, while Taylor C. had this to say:

“I first checked out Grande Vegas when I heard they had the biggest progressive jackpots that we American online casino players can play for,ā€ said Taylor C.Ā  ā€œI do recall reading about the Foxwoods contest in a player newsletter at the beginning of the summer but Iā€™d honestly forgotten about it. So it was quite a surprise ā€“ a really pleasant surprise ā€“ when Customer Support contacted me to tell me to start packing for my free trip to Foxwoods!ā€

It’s not very often often that online casinos give away free trips to players. It’s certainly not very often for an online casino to send their players to a brick ‘n mortar casino at that. If you ask me, it’s like giving business away. But then again, that’s Grande Vegas for you. One of the top-performing U.S. facing, RTG-powered online casinos in business today, Grande Vegas doesn’t hold back in the promotions department.

In addition to their long-standing welcome bonus offer of 100% up to $100 Free on all new depositing players, Grande Vegas is giving away an additional match bonus worth $100 Free (aka, the Cosmopolitan Bonus) until September 22nd, and a 77% bonus up to $154 Free until September 30th.

And for all the table game bettors out there, Grande Vegas offers an outstanding ongoing cashback bonus. For all deposits up to $5,000 in a given week (contingent on all wagers being made at table games), Grande Vegas will give 5% back, while deposits over $5,000 will receive 10% back. Best of all, the cashback bonus money only needs to be played through one time over before it is eligible to be cashed out.
