What percentage of affiliates entitled to file a claim against Grand Prive will do it?
In December, eCOGRA announced that it was hired by the management of Grand Prive to prepare a report on the closure of the affiliate program and to accept claims by any affiliate that believed it might be owed money from players for play subsequent to the time the affiliate program was closed. What is your guess as to what percentage of those entitled to file a claim will actually do so? Hopefully this poll will increase awareness of the Dec. 31st deadline and a few additional folks will file a claim and receive money to which they are entitled. View poll
