Cardspike Axed From P.A.P


Poker affiliate program removes no-slow pay Internet poker site

The message board and website storm over Cake Poker Network skin CardSpike's alleged no-slow pay conduct continued over the weekend as news surfaced that Poker Affiliate Programs had axed the troubled website on December 31st.

Prior to the expulsion a PAP representative at that time posted: "We are working behind the scenes with CardSpike trying to get the payments issued as fast as possible but with the holidays, it doesn't make anyone's job easier. They are a client of ours and unfortunately were run poorly which is why Peter [a change of management] was brought in to correct this."

Later that day, a PAP administrator reported that PAP would no longer recommend the site and revoked its All In status, and a staff member suggested that "...everyone remove their links and cease promotion of this product as it does not appear they can salvage the brand given all the negative issues that have taken place."

CardSpike's website is still active on the Cake Poker network as the furore grows and is widely commented upon across the Internet. The site only opened late 2008, boasting an experienced management team of unidentified industry people and promising generous rakeback arrangements. It apparently ran into trouble within two months amid the usual excuses that tend to flag a cash-strapped firm.

The owners of CardSpike are listed as Gibraltar-based Domain Holdings Limited, which has a Curacao licence and uses a mix of Cake Gaming, Realtime Gaming and proprietary software across some 18 mainly sportsbetting websites. Affiliate marketing in the group is promoted by the Commission Account gambling affiliate program.
