    It is pretty clear they are cross marketing, they have admitted to a certain degree of cross marketing but I think the point is that some are suggesting this goes far beyond just the logo cross marketing.

    This is a very confusing situation when they are buying up brands of casinos we marketed for other groups, now that they bought them and mapped the players over to our accounts THEN they invite those players to join the other casinos they have is that stealing? I am not so sure, they bought the casino and the players and I consider it lucky we are still earning off the players not all other companies would even tag the players to us!


    We could as affiliates just not put the banners up of the brands they purchase and choose to earn off the existing players they tagged to us OR we can put the banners up send them new players for them to cross market and take from us. UGG this is a complicated situation to be honest.

    Thanks for sharing this. I'm a little confused about some parts of all of this.

    Question: Is the CasinoShare player that this email was sent to, definitely tagged to an affiliate?

    Daera, Rewards admits that these letters go out as retention tools to all players and are never tagged to any affiliates.

    Thanks Dom. For some reason I was thinking Renee said that an email like that wouldn't be sent to tagged players. thanks for clarifying. I think some of the facts got lost with me over at GPWA. All the negativity and high emotion made it hard for me to follow..

    I am glad to see you understand now what is happening.

    The first time I checked I said to myself nah can't be Rewards would never do this to us..........how wrong could I be. This literally changed my mind about all affiliate programs !

    At Rewardsaffiliates they really need to think fast about how to stop those leaks rather than claiming it is not doable.

    The thread at GPWA went into the 'can't understand' way at the beginning and not many stood up against the cross promotion.

    I don't think the majority of affiliates really understand how this affect them and not paying attention.

    IMO the FACTS need to be posted in a bullet point style in simple details that do not take an hour to read.

    I'm now forced to work with RA due to them buying more brands and I really hope to see them give a bit more as IMO they are taking revenue that belongs to me.

    As for Rewards Affiliates....I could careless what you do with the players after I bring them to you, but tag the player to me at the cross-promoted brand so that I can continue to get my rev share instead of taking it from me and calling it 'business' because IMO it's thieft!

    Finally, the post at GPWA was a joke and no one that I know agreed with what when down and it was just swept under the rug. Let's hope it's not a repeat here. :)

    I think the only way to get casinos to change is to pull support for them.If a casino is going to cross promote and feel that is ok and i see my revenue shrinking then obviously it leaves no choice but to stop working with them.
