    After over 10 years of dedicating (and sometimes semi-dedicating) myself to AGD and what it stands for - I am officially passing the torch to a group of fine individuals, who I believe, will properly carry on the mission of "protecting affiliate interests". With that said...


    Affiliate Guard Dog Passes the Torch to LCB

    We are elated to announce the acquisition of Affiliate Guard Dog (AGD), the authority on keeping a watchful vigilance in the best interest of affiliates. Owner Andy has created a credible site built upon the principles to support and protect online gambling affiliates who consider AGD a more honest and credible watchdog.

    The business practices of operators are revealed in open forum discussions highlighting the good, mediocre and tearing into the bad. Up to the minute material will be shared within the community regarding latest casinos launched, new slot releases, industry news, etc.

    It is an organization where affiliates, casino reps and management can congregate on the forum and engage in open discussions. One of the highlights is the Platinum Certified Programs. There is a strict pre-requisite to qualify for this certificate which includes non-predatory T&C’s, timely payments to affiliates, quick response time and no involvement in spam or rogue casino activities.

    Additionally, a list of Rogue Programs is available with a description for why they have been placed there. Awareness of misconduct comes first hand from affiliates and staff members. This is a helpful guide warning affiliates of who to avoid in business partnerships.

    Passing the baton over to Josh Chan CEO of LCB is an ideal takeover, particularly for their already diligent watchdog approach they maintain.


    Andy commented: “Josh and the LCB team were handpicked to ensure that AGD moves forward with even more dedication towards the protection of affiliates. While is it sad to let AGD go, I believe it is in the best interest of affiliates to have a dedicated team ready and willing to protect affiliate interests.”

    Our main aspiration is to educate and bring awareness to players. It is essential to steer gamblers in the right direction and avoid potential issues at rogue casinos. As a result of our core principals, we have taken it one step further by expanding our network to assist our fellow affiliates.


    Josh added: “We will be dedicating full-time resources to add helpful tools for our fellow affiliates, we have learnt many insights into what it takes to be a successful affiliate over the last 10+ years and we hope to share that knowledge and help move this industry into a safer and more honest one.”



    I will still be around and likely using the username: KWBLUE, which many of you longtimers may recognize ;)

    Least Corfman didn't get his hands on it, so that's a plus right there. All the best for the future Andy :)

    Hello Andy,

    How are you?

    Can't you stay until at least the end of this year, please?

    I don't want to see you go and this is very sad news for me. :(

    Would you reconsider your decision, please?

    You have done a great job Andy! We now carry the torch with pride and hope to continue a solid and helpful service for our fellow affiliates. We have a great team behind the LCB network (at 60+- strong currently) and hope to get the new design you had in the works launched as well as a few other helpful research projects and tools for affiliates.
