CAP Spring Break and Poker Conference Registrations Now Open
We are really pleased to announce that the registration for both CAP SpringBreak and the Poker Affiliate Conference 2008 is now open and already filling up fast.

If you have had your head in the sand and are not aware of the events taking place in May I have listed below a small description for each one, but please click on their respective websites should you need any further information. The events themselves overlap and are taking place in Cyprus from May 19th - May 24th and form a perfect balance of exhibition, conference and networking events in a luxury resort in sunny Cyprus just a few hours from mainland Europe and 40 minutes from Israel making it an ideal location for an iGaming event.

Poker Conference 2008 -

Through out the past few years, the poker affiliate market has been experiencing exponential growth. Until now, all the industry events however have been broadly focused on the entire online gaming affiliate market. The team at is proud to bring you the 1st annual conference that will be focused completely on the poker affiliate side of the business. The Poker Conference will be an interactive 2 day event just prior to CAP Spring Break and will encompass networking events, roundtable discussions, speaker sessions, a vendor exposition, and of course great parties. What is great about this event is that the conference streams will be split into two with content aimed at both the affiliates and the operators which has never been done before. If you are involved in the poker industry or haven been looking to get into the market this event is essential.

CAP Spring Break -

For the past 6 years have organized a fun, casual networking spring break event in paradise locations ranging from Miami Beach to the Bahamas and 2008 will be no different with the event moving to the sunny shore of Cyprus. CAP Spring Break is not your typical conference. This event not only seeks to educate and influence the industry, but also grows affiliate relationships via friendly networking. It is like no other event you have ever been to before and will change your entire outlook on how a business event should be run - There is no conference or expo just pure networking activities that help bring the industry and community closer.

Last but certainly not least we have the ASOP (Affiliate Series of Poker) which will be running for the 5th time in Cyprus and with and even bigger bracelet being made and a ticket to the WSOP main event as the first prize it really is an event not to be missed!! The ASOP site is being updated over the next 24 hrs but is open for registration so get over to and register for this unmissable event.

 Manager's Corner

PierrickPierrick, Virgin Games

After 6 years holding various positions in the online gaming industry, I was appointed by Virgin Games in late 2005 to kick start their affiliate strategy. After months of hard work we launched our unified in-house affiliate program at CAP Euro London in January 2007.

Virgin Games Affiliates allows webmasters to promote Virgin Casino, Virgin Poker and Virgin Bingo under a single affiliate account.

We offer a welcome revenue share of 50% commission for two months, then up to 40% thereafter. CPA and hybrid models are available on demand, as is our sub-affiliate offer.

We are fortunate enough to work with trusted and therefore well-converting brands, with a unique approach to customer retention (the V*points loyalty system, where loyalty points can be redeemed as Virgin Atlantic flying club miles, charity donations or Virgin vouchers), fast payouts, and unique Casino games: Cleopatra™, Monopoly™, The price is right™, etc…and Elvis Multistrike ™ coming very soon.
