About the Advertising on this Site
How I pick the advertisers
Here are my ideal criteria for an online casino:
- Available to most U.S. players (most of my readership)
- Browser-based free-play games, playable without registering
- Good reputation on payouts, good review at Casinomeister
- Responds promptly and professionally to player issues
- Licensed by a reputable licensing authority
- Publishes the RTP (return to player) for all of their slots
- Has modern-looking games (many casino's games graphics are on par with an old Nintendo)
I'm continuing to advertise Bovada because even with their faults, they're still better than the other U.S.-facing casinos, especially in that they're the only one I know of that lets you play their games right in your web browser, with fake money, without having to register an account. And if any readers know of a U.S.-wide casino that meets more of the criteria above, then by all means please let me know.
Am I biased because I get advertising money?
That said, if you don't believe me and you think I'm biased towards my advertiser(s), then feel free to not play there.
I'm not sending readers to the poorhouse
This is a far cry from the attitude of many other gambling webmasters. As one of them opined, "If the webmaster is not an idiot, he wants the rich, stupid and desperate gamblers to register and squeeze all the money out of him."

Non-Casino Affiliate Advertising
Besides Bovada, some of the links on the site are affiliate links, where I get a commission if you click through to the advertiser and buy something (like a hotel room). But that doesn't mean I'm going to steer you to a lesser-quality site in an effort to make more money. For example, I'd get paid if I steered you to Travelocity for airfare booking, because Travelocity would pay me, but instead for I steer you to Skiplagged, even though they wouldn't pay me a thin dime. I link to Skiplagged because they're the best site for finding airfare, and at Easy Vegas the reader always comes first.
If I could get paid by Skiplagged, then rest assured that I'd pile up the money on the bed and my wife and I would roll around in it naked.
