    Just thought I would give everyone a heads up in case they don't already know, gaming gang folded so you need to redirect their traffic asap.

    I was told they were shut down as of April 1st, but just got the email this morning. I guess using their head a little and actually posting a bulletin when you log in to their program would be asking too much.

    Hi bonusgeek,

    Thanks for the heads up, this is really big thing, can I ask how do you know about this? does your source sure about it?

    Thanks,

    Roy.

    Wow - why haven't I got that email?

    This kind of blows considering the assuarances I got that they were "here for the long run"

    Any chance you could post the email up and let me know when you received it?

    Cheers

    I can't honestly say I'm sorry to hear this.
    Serves them right for trying to launch LV casino WITHOUT the help of affiliates! :p

    The only really bad thing it it seems operators are leaving Top Game like rats from a sinking ship. :eek:
    I'm not over-familiar with the software, but I always find it extremely sad when player's choice of casino platform is reduced - especially for USA players.

    When are they closing exactly? - only the affy site seems to be up & running normally... :confused:

    There seems to be a lot of this stuff happening at the moment : casinos coming out big with heavy advertising and then folding about 20 minutes later - witness ChanceRoom, BillyWhateverCasino, GaminGang and more.

    The usual advice about not promoting a brand for 18-24 months holds steady, but if you are going to push a new brand then I would suggest properties that aren't throwing their money around on building their brand.

    What is the big issue when a topgame casino folds? Cannot get it...Is it because of the affiliate payments?

    Maybe if you were an affiliate you would understand.
    But as a player (with a chip on his shoulder) you seem to completely misunderstand most of the issues involved with being an affiliate.

    You don't know anything about me or what I promote.
    So your statement makes no sense at all.

    I know for sure that I am 'chomping at the bit' to work with Dennis again...can't wait...:rolleyes:

    I mean, this is the kind of service we all seek...isn't it? No upfront communication about the program closing down....we find out after the fact...our LV Casino banners are still live on our sites...the programs website states jack $hit about this and we are still promoting them a week after the fact...WTF!!

    Yea Dennis, I for one most definitely want to work with you again buddy...especially when you can't even answer a fuc-king email...:mad:

    You guys also owe me money and I damn well expect to receive it soon too!!

    Andy, this was an "Approved Program" here...correct?

    So can you let us know WTF is going on with them and why there has been no notice of this from them or even their website still up and going?

    Is this what we can expect in the future from approved programs...:mad:

    Sorry Andy, I don't mean to sound harsh toward you...I'm just frustrated with this total lack of communication here....

    And I did sign-up there based on the fact you approved them..:cool:

    I wasn't offended :) I can completely understand - this program has shown complete lack of ethics in regards to letting their affiliates know what is going on :(

    It is tough to determine that this would happen in advance, unfortunately, and they were VERY responsive while open. I'm not sure what is happening here, but it sounds bad.

    I need to find out what is happening with the program AND the casinos.

    Thanks and sorry this has happened :(

    I understand the frustration of this but AGD cannot be held responsible if the program does not inform us. I am glad I didn't jump on the band wagon with this program.

    Sometimes I think it would be good to make a program wait six months before they get a seal but then we are not really helping affiliates if they sign up and were not ward in advance of certain negative terms etc, that to me is the important thing making sure affiliates are not screwed by terms.
