    Agreed. I can't think of any that pleased affiliates.

    I see no banners for mummy's gold on buffalo so presume it's not included , so I guess we have to go to all pages where Mummy's Gold is displayed and delete them...is that correct ?

    If you go to any of those you can still sign up as a player. At River Belle if you click the affiliates link in the footer you get a page encouraging you to sign up at Buffalo Partners, who won't pay you a cent for referring anyone there. Mummy's Gold sends you to Wagershare which redirects to Buffalo, same deal. King Neptunes appear to have removed the affiliates link.

    Logging in to the system it looks to me to be a rebranding of Wagershare as all the settings, links and previous months stats are all Wagershare, even after I merged with my Referback account. I had a custom deal with Referback and it is gone and I am set to a default tiered revenue share. I cannot see a single click from any visitor to a former-Referback casino this month which is impossible. So don't get too excited yet as it doesn't appear to be working properly to me.

    I had a bespoke rev deal too and like you mines reverted to the base also. Plus like you, my stats don't show a damn thing in history. I didn't promote WS casino for ages, so not too savvy on the back end comparision but will take your word for it.

    No RB stats, the base commision and now having to rush around and remove multiple casinos because they couldn't give us enough forewarning on the casinos they're ditching. Makes me side with the opinion that WS are taking over RB and not the other way around. I'll give it another week and if nothing changes, then I'm cutting my losses and yanking everything!

    I'm sick and tired of no infomation and having this BS dumped in my lap, every time program decides to change the goal posts.

    Another question?

    Do we need to change/update link tags for Jackpot City, Gaming Club and Lucky Nugget?

    Did a quick whois as it doesn't seem anyone else had:

    Domain Name: BUFFALOPARTNERS.COM
    Registrar WHOIS Server: whois.instra.net
    Updated Date: 2014-05-30T11:34:58Z
    Creation Date: 2014-04-07T06:17:50Z
    Admin Organization: City Views Ltd.
    Admin Street: 1 Mapp Street
    Admin City: Belize City
    Admin State/Province: CA
    Admin Postal Code: XBX1011
    Admin Country: BZ
    Admin Email: admin AT thepalacegroup.com

    That last entry is enough to scare me away and conclude, it's high probable Wagershare is taking over the reins from Referback. In which case, shouldn't have to remind anyone what WS did to affiliates!

    As further proof its likely that Wagershare is taking over control.

    City Views Ltd, were embroiled in an arbitration/mediation between City Views Ltd (owner of Mummys Gold Casino) versus Moniker (privacy services).

    NB - "Wagershare" is cited in the following document sections:
    4. Factual Background
    5. Parties' Contentions
    B. Respondent
    Analysis of the facts and circumstances


    http://www.wipo.int/amc/en/domains/decisions/html/2009/d2009-0643.html

    Wagershare bent me over last time with excessively high (imo bogus) account lockings, (fudged) chargebacks etc etc. I can see this turning out the same way. I think it's time I wake up and smell the coffee and conclude, the good days with Referback are over!

    If Wagershare took over from Referback, then the brand change for the affiliate program makes sense.
    Otherwise, why would Referback, a company with over 12+ years online and few complaints, change
    their brand name to something that nobody has ever heard of. If Wagershare is taking over everything,
    then changing the brand name is a good excuse to get away from the negative history that they've had.

    We had a hybrid for Referback...dates back to 2007. Now it seems we're at the base revshare deal.
    Haven't heard back if our hybrid deal will be honored after the move/merge.

    Exactly. It's the only thing that makes sense, in all of this imo.

    Reiterating my AM and I had a solid relationship but in the last few months, I've not heard peep from him. Then, this comes out.

    Have no idea if he's even working there anymore. That's a worry for me.

    I'm in the same boat.

    At this time of the month I see only one new player and $40 deposits even if I had a lot of loyal players for years. Usually I made 1k-1.5k every month from Referback (good months 2k+ and bad months around $6-800); this month already made: $9.4 :mad::mad:. Total deposits range from 5k to 11k+ and 10 up to 20 new depositing players every month so I really think all the stats that I see in Buffalo is bullshit.

    Plus, I don't see any links for RB casinos in Buffalo and worst of all, my old RB AM doesn't respond at my emails.:mad::mad:

    Checking the Revenue Reports for July 2014, I still see only Wagershare earnings.
    Does anyone also see referback earnings for July yet?

    thank you Casey.
    I have already sent an email to ask when the referback earnings will be visible in our account.

    I don't see any stats from RB for July, but I'm seeing stats from existing RB links for August.

    I see a player account from River Belle closed (fraud so it says)

    IF all Referback data has been uploaded then I can tell you that the BP/RB stats are NOT showing my players correctly and I am 99% sure as none of them have been playing the last few days, which I absolutely do NOT believe!

    Although its early days it is not encouraging to give them exposure, but there is no option other than wait before making a final decision.

    I just received the following reply

    I am aware that the RFB stats are not displaying as they should. All the data is there, I can see it on my backend. Our team are working to resolve this issue ASAP.

    My apologies for any inconvenience caused.

    Can you please tell me if you have received this answer from your "old" RB AM or from someone at Buffalo?

    Thanks
