Do you read financial reports or financial news about the companies you work with?
In the past, it has been difficult to learn about the financial stability of the businesses online gambling affiliates work with. But today affiliates are increasingly working with larger companies that provide financial reports to the public. Do you look at financial reports for any of the companies you work with? If you have, share any actions you've taken as a result. And if you know of any recent financial reports or news you think will be interesting, share that as well. View poll
