Irvine, CA (PRWEB) October 28, 2008 — CasinoAffiliatePrograms.com ("CAP"), a leading online marketing resource and community website for Internet casino affiliates, announced today the commencement of the final voting stage in its highly anticipated Second Annual CAP Awards.
"We'd like to announce that the nomination stage of the CAP Awards is now closed," stated Lou Fabiano, President and Founder of CasinoAffiliatePrograms.com. "And, in doing so, we want to invite all members of the online gaming community to cast their votes for 2008's best affiliate industry leaders!"
"Those in the affiliate industry don't specifically have to be registered at CAP or PAP to vote, but we do encourage you to register with us if you're serious about your affiliate program," added Mr. Fabiano. "And, of course, everyone can vote only once."
Held during January's Gala Reception and Awards Ceremony as part of the annual CAP Euro London event, the CAP Awards is a yearly ceremony held by CasinoAffiliatePrograms.com in collaboration with its sister site, PokerAffiliatePrograms.com ("PAP"), to recognize and honor the most successful and innovative members of the worldwide Internet gaming community.
Representing the largest and longest-running community of its type, with the most popular and highly trafficked user forums in the industry, CAP and PAP are uniquely qualified to empower online gaming's affiliates and affiliate managers with the decision of naming who has made the year's greatest achievements among them — and therefore who deserves to take home a coveted CAPPY award.
The CAP Awards nominations process is peer-led, allowing the gaming affiliate community to nominate and vote in each category. Overseeing the voting and awards process is an independent judiciary panel made up of ten respected operators, affiliates, and vendors. In addition to providing important industry insight and expertise, these individuals help ensure that the nominations are well-placed and the awards operate in a fair and non-biased manner. The democratic nature of the process is designed to ensure that the CAP Awards represent a consensus of the online gaming affiliate community as a whole, and are not just the decision of the CAP administrators.
The CAP Awards recognize superior achievement for Best Affiliate, Best Affiliate Program, and Best Affiliate Manager in the categories of Casino, Poker, Bingo, Sports Betting, Skill Gaming, and Lottery. There are also awards for Best iGaming Software in the categories of Casino, Poker, and Bingo. Rounding out the awards are Best Overall Affiliate, Best Overall Affiliate Manager, Best iGaming Affiliate Network, and Best Payment System.
CAP officials emphasized that all awards nominations are completely user-driven; employees and management of CAP or PAP had no involvement in the nominations.
