GPWA suspends two program sponsorships
The GPWA has stopped listing Chipleader Affiliates and Affiliate4you as sponsor programs. Chipleader's sponsorship was suspended because of payment issues and its lack of response to affiliates regarding payment issues. Affiliate4you's suspension came after significant questions were raised about the program, its casinos and its casino software. As a result of these issues, a mutual decision was reached to suspend sponsorship services.
