Gambling Portal Webmasters Association (GPWA) Awards 400 Seals of Approval

NEWTON, MA--(Marketwire - February 20, 2008) - The Gambling Portal Webmasters Association (, the only professional association of its kind, announced that it reached a milestone today with the award of the 400th "GPWA Seal of Approval" to one of its member websites.

"The 400th seal award provides an important moment to reflect on the professionalism and integrity that can move an industry forward. We are energized by our members' efforts and look forward to continued success," stated GPWA Program Manager Steven Corfman. "Players are looking for sites they can trust, and honorable webmasters deserve to differentiate themselves from rogue operators. The Seal of Approval program provides the distinction these webmasters deserve, and gives consumers the information and assurance to make critical decisions about who is reputable and who to skip past."

The GPWA Approved Portal Seal lets players know that the designated site is managed independently of the sites it provides information about or promotes; that it respects and upholds copyright standards; that it does not send spam email, use unethical search-engine-optimization techniques, or promote or display pornography; that it provides consumers with information extending beyond banner ads and links; and that it acts professionally and respectfully in its business activities.

The Gambling Portal Webmasters Association was founded in May 2001 as an organization that promotes responsible gaming, strengthens relationships between affiliate program managers and portal webmasters, and give its members a way to collaborate with other webmasters. The GPWA's 5,000+ members communicate and share information in 100 forums, with 30,000 threads and 200,000 posts. In July 2006, the GPWA was acquired by Casino City, the world's largest provider of casino and gaming information.
