4.1.1 CPA - PER SIGNUP (MARKETERS CHOICE)
In this program we pay our affiliates based on each depositing player. Below is the table of payout in this program
|Up to 25 players per month||$60|
Please also note a player is only considered a depositing player should the player deposit the same amount as the CPA value and play through the deposit. This is to protect GW from potential fraudulent activity. GW reserves the right to withhold commissions from the affiliate should the affiliate bring in 'problem' players or commit fraud.
We welcome all affiliates no matter their country of origin. However, due to the potential for fraud that our CPA model opens up, management reserves the right to restrict CPA as a compensation method based on the affiliate's country of residence. People from India, China and certain parts of Asia may have their CPA model switched to Rev-Share upon sign up. People from these regions may also experience difficulty receiving checks, as they are frequently stolen. Other methods of payment are recommended for anyone living in these countries.
