    LesBCasino would have been even worse, but I agree it does sound stupid.

    They actually waived the NCO for 6 months for me last time I worked with them - not that it made any difference anyway, as I couldn't convert jack with them.

    It is short for Les Ambassedeurs or something. I agree though, its not a good name. Or maybe it is?

    Thanks, now I have my drink coming out my nose... :D

    Where is the Focal Click affiliate program team based? One of those websites that doesn't provide any sort of address or phone number at all - most of the time they're based in Israel when they do this as they know people will be put off working with them

    Thanks KK, we've tried with many casinos and it's interesting to learn that others struggle to make any money. We've suspected shaving from a good 80-90% of programs - it's more the norm than not. Don't trust iAffiliates too.

    Paddy are robbing people ion broad daylight by not providing cross product.

    Will Hills are completely robbing people across all products. They used to shave, and detag players, but when everyone found that out they just switched to other methods that are harder to prove. For example, your account is a few thousand up and about the 20th-25th of the month they'll throw in a "new depositor" who strangely wins $5K and plays once and disappears. When asked to explain it they just say - well, that's the nature of the business, sometimes players win. I would warn all affiliates to look out for "tagging" whereby you're given (possibly real/genuine) players onto your affiliate account, the advertiser knowing full well that they'll hit you with big losses because they're known winners.

    I just wish some of these guys could get caught out robbing and someone would go to jail for it.

    Others who steal too - Ladbrokes, Betfred/ActiveWins (ex-Europartners people), Deckmedia, Europartners, 888, Unibet, Sportingbet (part of which now Will Hill), RevenueJet, BetAtHome, BeAffiliates, Betway/Wagershare.

    If you look up any of these companies you'll find plenty of bad press. Let's withdraw from the rogues and let them die out! It's already happening to a few programs - many can't get new affiliates now and are having to switch to one-off payments to get positions on people's sites.

    One more thing you should look at in any casino affiliate program is how your affiliate manager is paid. Many of the rogue programs who are suspected of fraud pay their affiliate managers, their managers, and their managers a cut of the money made by affiliates. It's therefore in their interest, if they can get away with it, to skim from you to boost their salary. Directly ask your affiliate managers now, and I can bet you they lie to you! Europartners definitely do. William Hill do, Ladbrokes do.

    Not sure I quite get your last point.

    You said "Many of the rogue programs who are suspected of fraud pay their affiliate managers, their managers, and their managers a cut of the money made by affiliates. It's therefore in their interest, if they can get away with it, to skim from you to boost their salary."

    To me, it would be in the affiliate manager's interest to make sure affiliate numbers are correctly reported if they are getting a cut of our commissions.
