About the Advertisers on this Site
Different ads are served to different countries
How I pick the advertisers
Here are my ideal criteria for an online casino:
- Available to U.S. players (most of my readership)
- Browser-based free-play games, playable without registering
- Good reputation, responds promptly and professionally to player issues
- Publishes the RTP (return to player) for all of their slots
I'm continuing to advertise Bovada because even with their faults, they're still better than the other U.S.-facing casinos, especially in that they're the only one I know of that lets you play their games right in your web browser, with fake money, without having to register an account. And if any readers know of a U.S.-facing casinos with a great reputation that has browser-based games that are playable without registering an account, then by all means please let me know.
Am I biased because I get advertising money?
That said, if you don't believe me and you think I'm biased towards my advertiser(s), then feel free to not play there.

Non-Casino Affiliate Advertising
Besides Bovada, some of the links on the site are affiliate links, where I get a commission if you click through to the advertiser and buy something (like a hotel room). But that doesn't mean I'm going to steer you to a lesser-quality site in an effort to make more money. For example, I'd get paid if I steered you to Travelocity for airfare booking, because Travelocity would pay me, but instead I steer you to HipMunk, even though they won't pay me a thin dime. I link to HipMunk simply because I feel they're the best site for finding airfare. I'd love it if they'd pay me, but they won't, but that doesn't stop me from linking them up in my airfare section.
