Television commercial spots are filled with sports betting ads, and all the big bookmakers in Europe (Bet365, Ladbrokes, Interwetten, etc) have affiliate programs. Yet when I look for forums where this is discussed, they are mainly filled with dead threads. A Bet365 affiliate sub forum that I found somewhere else had posts from 2012 on the first page. Aren't people making serious bank from this? The ad expenditure seems to be in the billions. It seems like the affiliate programs have confusing rules and unfriendly T&C's. As an upside, many of them pay out very quickly though. So please help me understand. What is the problem with making money from sports betting? And where are these programs discussed?
