    Go Wild added the new Wild Jackpot Casino a while back.

    I know a lot of people where wondering if earnings are bundled. I believe they are. My negative Wild Jackpot revenue is deducted from my positive Go Wild revenue.

    Maybe this should be corrected on the right.

    If an affiliate had an account before the program bundled, then you shouldn't be retroactively bundled. Otherwise this can have a detrimental affect on the ALL the work you've done with building your customer base. Further more "bundling" should have been clearly stated to affiliates when and if they commenced promoting Wild Jackpot.

    To do otherwise is sneeky and underhanded... jusy sayin

    Hello everybody!

    @byebyebaby Well before Wild Jackpots Casino was made available to our affiliates for promoting, our T&C’s have been updated accordingly and all the information on Calculations has been available at point 6.10 ever since. Furthermore, your Account Manager has and always will be available for any questions you might have.

    @Bet4You Since there is a fairly large number of affiliates that work with GoWild Affiliates, we did our best to make important information available to everyone by amending our T&C’s accordingly. All this was completed well before the new brand was opened for promoting. Therefore, any affiliate who wants to start promoting our second brand has access to all the relevant information, including information on bundling.

    Regards,
    GoWild Affiliates

    errr... you mean to say retroactively enforced on already signed up affiliates, hey!

    And what's the bet, whilst affiliate may not choose to promote Wild Jackpot, their tagged players will likely be contacted, to get them to sign up, why?

    Well yet another win win for yet another casino group, who has retroactively changed their T&C's to benefit themselves... By playing one casino against the other when affiliates are involved.

    Given the program is supposed to be an AGD Sponsor... Was that information posted here at AGD? I can answer that one, NO!!!

    I did not see a terms alert, will have to check into that. As far as retroactively bundling - that is certainly a no-no and I would have talked to them had I heard about it. Let's not slam them before finding out what can be done - GoWild has been one of the good guys for a long time. Best to give the benefit of the doubt and find out details first, IMO.

    I like GoWild a lot and I am not complaining at all. I agree they are good guys. I just pointed it out because of the green blocks on the right, bundling, no. But it seems to be yes now....

    Dave we are looking into this! I know that when they launched the new brand there were several questions about the bundling.. The bundling was in the terms change when they changed over to Netrefer.

    Christine, was it in the T&C's before Netrefer though?

    I can't honestly say yes or no and conducting a wayback machine search, the url before 2014 keeps going round in circles and never resolves. If the "bundling" term was there for those who signed up under those terms then, yes it's valid.

    However for those that didn't and it wasn't in the terms, then my point is, it should not be retroactively added.

    PS Congrats on the recent marriage :)

    Thank you ... Married life is a blast! I cannot say if it was in the terms of the old program but we did have a chat on skype with the boss at Go Wild and it is in my chat history as them saying there was going to be bundling of the brands and they are going to cross market our players over to the new brand.
    Some affiliates may have seen a rise in income at the new brand even tho they are not marketing it(due to the cross marketing) of course they are not going to complain about the extra income :)

    I am not a fan of bundling and never will be so I have opted out of marketing the newer brand we are starting removal today. I hope they do NOT cross market my players since I am not a fan of the bundling, not sure if I can ask them to refrain from cross marketing my players for me but it should be an option.

    Surely this is a moot point?
    Before, they only had one brand - so there would be no need to mention bundling.
    Now that they have added a second brand, they have also added a term about bundling (I assume, from what's been written above).

    I don't like bundling either, but I don't see how you can say they have retroactively changed their terms in these circumstances...

    I'd normally agree with you. But this isn't as cut and dry as that.

    I'm certainly not going to market Wild Jackpots but my choice to who I market here is out of my hands per se. EG - players already tagged to me at GoWild, will more than likely have Wild Jackpots marketed to them. I'll be "bundled" by proxy.

    Even though I've made a personal choice not to Market this new brand, I'll be forced into accepting "bundling" if and when any of my tagged players receive marketing and go on to deposit at Wild Jackpots.

    That's the point I'm making with regard to the retroactive changes ;)

    From what I understand, Bet4You, you are not an affiliate of GoWild.... so what are you talking about?

    I don't who you've been talking to about my business or who's been sharing MY private info with you BUT I most certainly am a GoWild Affiliate!

    It's not my doing that GW didn't post important information in their sponsor forum, about this "bundling" or seem to not bother attending to their affiliate's concerns. Granted I'm not in the USA but how many AGD members are still owed money, from 2014?
