BetUS GPWA Sponsorship suspended
The GPWA has suspended listing BetUS as a sponsor program because their lack of response to important affiliate questions violated the GPWA code of conduct. It is our hope that BetUS will resume communicating with us and other webmasters in the forums and satisfactorily answer the questions that have been raised. For now, the BetUS forum has been moved to the "Other Affiliate Programs" section so affiliates can continue to share information about the program.

Do you expect a third round of indictments against operators accepting U.S. players?
