Friday July 1,2011 : Internet gambling group is compliant with regulators and safe to promote
 
Amid the licence suspensions and speculation on the future of Full Tilt Poker and payment of its players this week, rival gambling group 888.com pitched in with a communication to its marketing affiliates that is clearly designed to assuage any fears they may have regarding the safety of the Gibraltar-based company.
 
In a reference to Black Friday, the 888.com communication refers to "recent events that shook the world of online poker" and notes that it can understand that many marketing affiliates and their players "felt the tremors."
 
"We are writing to you today with full confidence that the 888poker brand is as strong, safe and lucrative for affiliates than ever," the communication continues.
 
"As you already know, 888 Holdings Plc. is a publicly traded company that holds EU-licenses for all of its online gaming sites. You can be rest assured that 888poker meets the regulatory standards of the most prestigious governing bodies worldwide and has always maintained the highest level of compliance.
 
"Affiliates are our most valued partners and for that reason we have significantly expanded our acquisition offers so that you have the best tools to do your job with. We're investing more in TV campaigns in the UK, increased our guaranteed tournaments, added more summer freerolls and threw in a new reload bonus too."
