Tribeca trips up Doylesroom
Internet poker site Doylesroom.com's attempts to attract U.S. players hit a snag when its software developer announced that it would no longer permit its licensees to accept American bets. American customers are critically important to Doylesroom.com -- especially following the passage of the UIGEA. The site has been recruiting new customers by allowing them to transfer VIP points earned with competitors who blocked American play.

DublinBet.com joins Income Access affiliate program
Income Access has welcomed new online casino DublinBet.com to its gambling affiliate network. DublinBet uses proprietary no-download webcasting technology to enable players to bet on physical live games on the floor of an actual land-based casino in Dublin.

FullContactPoker switches software to keep U.S. players
FullContactPoker.com soft launched new software last week so it can continue accepting U.S. customers. The move came just over a month after OnGame decided to stop accepting American customers in the wake of Bush's signing of the Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act. The new software, which is being beta tested, was developed by Dobrosoft.

GameAccount Announces Closure of US-facing Skill Gaming
Kevin Dale, CEO of GameAccount commented, "Skill-based online gaming is and will remain a grey area under the UIGEA until tested under federal US law. It is extremely hard to argue that games of skill, such as those provided by leading skill games operators, have zero element of chance influencing the outcome of real money tournaments. Closing access to US-resident real money players was a hard decision, but a sensible one."

Canbet no longer accepting U.S. players
All bets that are placed on or before November 30th 2006 by residents of the USA (including pending bets) will stand and be honored by Canbet.

"After testing a casino ( i wont mention their name ) I decided to check my stats to see if they updated my click and download. I was facinated to see it registered my click but not my download. I have the affiliate manager for this casino on my msn and she stated that if i had clicked on someone elses banner before they would recieve credit for the download. Even if I didnt download from that other affiliates banner 3 months back, they still recieve the credit? It turns out that if you do not delete your cookies they store the last time you clicked on that banner and they will always recieve credit for it." read more
