    The email below speaks for itself. I didn't think Betfred did business like this. I am surprised there aren't other threads about this. Surely I am not the only one they are pulling this with.

    I am emailing in relation to your Betfred Affiliate Account.

    We have been looking at your activity over the last few months and can see that there has been no new acquisition through your account to Betfred during this time. We will therefore be reducing your revenue share commission to 10% from July 2014.

    In order for us to continue with our partnership we will need to see an increase in monthly acquisition, as should your account still have no new players within a further 2 month period we will regrettably have to close your Betfred Affiliate Account.

    Yea I seen that, I suppose it's the perfect situation for them to resort to stealing from affiliates. I don't even know if their terms allow what they are doing or not. I assume they do as there is always a clause in there that says we can bend you over if we want to.

    Either way this is enough for me to take them down everywhere and I suggest existing affiliates reconsider growing a large playerbase at a company like this unless they don't mind losing everything they've worked for over the years in the blink of an eye. Luckily I never did much with them so I can eat whatever future losses I might incur and not sweat it too much.

    I pulled them long ago so I guess they'll be closing my account but I did not get the email afaik.
    I do have some sub-aff money in there but its small. They always paid me but the last wire to my ps account they left off the beneificiary name and the wire got stuck in limbo. It got fixed though but cost them some fees.

    Thieves. Plain thieves.

    This sort of behaviour is unforgivable and Betfred has gone from one of the best brands to one of the most rogued brands since its move to Europartners (wait, I meant ActiveWins, but same thing if you look at the people running it!).

    Drop all ActiveWins programs now if you want a long term, reliable and stable relationship with your advertisers.

    I am also informed that they will close account if no new FTD's. Betfred was listed in top 10 sportsbooks in many sites and for a long time, but conversion from SIGNUP to FTD is like mission impossible. Interesting is that on one side they are going to close my account and on the other they are sending emails about promoting their Mobibet casino.

    EuroPartners is ActiveWins? RE: Betrfred I didn't get that mail luckily though this is reminding me of the recent Stan James debacle.

    I refuse to work now with any affiliate program based in Isreal. Europartners had a woeful history of screwing affiliates. And given the same bunch run ActiveWins, well...

    ActiveWins emailed us today saying they now run the Kerching casino program in place of Income Access, so from all of the above comments they are up shit creek without a paddle in our eyes.... plenty of rhetoric see below.

    ActiveWins will now be handling the Kerching affiliate program. Moving forward you will have a dedicated account management provided by our experienced team of affiliate managers. You will be delighted to know that over the coming months a substantial amount of investment and resources will be inserted into the development and growth of both the Kerching brand and product;

    Kerching mobile is currently being upgraded and will be launching a new App product, this will allow for an improved user experience on both Smart Phones and Tablets. More importantly this will boost player values. The programme will be fully integrated into the Income Access system.

    Further benefits will include:


    • One login and shared wallet for players
    • All tracking, reporting and visibility of performance via the Income Access system
    • Automated, daily reporting
    • Promo codes for all devices – promote Kerching for all devices in one hit
    • New games, especially benefitting mobile
    • Extra pay solutions

    With an exciting future ahead, I look forward to working closely with you to grow our partnership. Having had a quick glance across your site I noticed we are not well represented at present. Would it be possible to secure best UK casino exposure?


    Also, on today we will be releasing Miss Red – our latest online slot featuring MultiWay Xtra, a unique End2End feature, a retriggerable free spins bonus with picker screen, a grown up Miss Red character and the Big Bad Wolf. To celebrate the launch, we’re offering players a chance to win a share of £250! Top prize of £150 and two runners up prizes of £50 each; awarded to the three highest winners from a single spin on Miss Red. This prize will be based on gameplay between Thurs 24th and 23:59pm on Sun 27th July. It would great to get some exposure around the release on your site. We will be providing a suite of banners that will link to a dedicated page detailing this promotion. If you require anything or have any questions then please do not hesitate to contact me.
