    Good morning. :)

    We’d like to inform all of our affiliates about a small update regarding the affiliate tracking links.

    So, you may be using either one of these two types of trackings:

    Example 1) https://www.videoslots.com/?referral_id=SampleID

    OR

    Example 2) http://www.videoslots.com:8090/click/?campid=535fc2b1be1fb0e4f35d1d01

    Those who are using Example 1 type of tracking – may continue doing so, and everything will remain working perfectly fine.

    On the other hand if you are using Example 2 you will need to change the tracker slightly.

    ie; All you need to do is simply change the “http://www.” To “http://affiliates.

    Therefore the Tracking Link which before used be:
    http://www.videoslots.com:8090/click/?campid=535fc2b1be1fb0e4f35d1d01

    Will now be:
    http://affiliates.videoslots.com:8090/click/?campid=535fc2b1be1fb0e4f35d1d01

    *It is extremely important that affiliates using Example 2 type of tracking to update all their tracking links as advised as soon as possible, as the “old” tracking links will not be working any longer as from Monday 5th of May 2014.

    Should you need any assistance do not hesitate to contact me via email or Skype (details in sig. below) and I’ll gladly help out. ;)

    Kind Regards,
    Lucas

    Hey tryme1,

    You're very welcome. :)

    No - All links need to be updated.

    Best Regards,
    Lucas

    This is not the first time you did this and it is very annoying!

    A 301 instructs the browser to redirect which creates a new request and would therefore set a cookie based on the link parameters no problem. If they did it.

    Lucas, are you saying that instead of the strange long link with the odd port number 8090 we can just use the simple link format

    videoslots.com/?referral_id=whatever

    and it will track instead?

    Hi All,

    Good afternoon. :)

    @ Bonustreak - I understand that updating affiliate tracking links may be a little bit of a hassle, though it actually is the first time that we have required our affiliates to update their tracking links. - (We were meant to do it in the past, although we had not done it until now since we need to.)

    This is due to the fact that we are getting going live with NetEnt very soon -(this month) and launching with the LGA license, therefore we are migrating our servers to Malta in accordance with LGA requirements.

    [ a 301 would still not suffice.]

    @ Vladi - The simple link format such as the Example 1 i have given above would still work and track yes. ;)

    (N.B. - The only difference between Example 1 and Example 2 type of tracking links is simply that the Example 1 doesn't count clicks/views stats, whilst the Example 2 does count them along with all the other stats.)

    Thanks again, and do let me know should you need any further assistance.

    Kind Regards,
    Lucas
