    Where do I get the all the free online casino news and other resources. Including how to play, and strategies, etc...

    I want my site to have something for the user to read, not just list of casinos.

    Most casino news you would get from your affiliate program. Some of them have news feeds that you can use.

    As far as the 'how to play' - you need to do research and give credit where credit is due. For example, you can paraphrase something from a book, but without proper credit you will get sued. With a website, you would need validation from the author that you can use his/her content.

    I know that we have to credit them and link back. But is there a website on the net that have ready to use articles like wikipedia?

    I know casino affiliate sites very aggressive about their contents and I respect it!

    So I am looking for content that available for free with a simple link back or something similar.

    Do you know such site? I do google search and it's all come up with the casino affiliate sites.

    I really don't know of any, but mainly because I write (or have written by someone) all of my content. The only places I know of that allow you to use their content are affiliate programs themselves who will write reviews for their casinos and games.

    I think I better starting from them to fill up my website with some text. Not just facts and figures.

    Hey Guard Dog,
    If I refer myself will I get any commission? Are you allow to do that. I just want to test out which CAP pay!

    What happen if you get caught? :(

    Most places will not allow you to make commissions off of yourself. You may get away with it at some, but they can close your account and confiscate your real earnings in most cases (according to the terms and conditions)

    In that case, I think need to ask my friend to test it for me. :) Hopefully, it's ok!

    There is no way they can find out which gambler is my friend, we are living in different countries.

    This always struck me as slightly absurd, because;

    1) affiliates should really be looking to test out the system for themselves and this is the easiest way and;

    2) the casino makes money out of them at the same time

    Yeah, but with all that said.....

    Quite a few affiliate programs have it in their T&C's, but overlook it in practice. It protects them from those who would sign up as an affiliate ONLY to get back a percentage of their losses.
