    I know, they gave no warning, zero communication. I even played at Jackpotparty this week and it was the worst robbing casino I ever experienced.. Loads of people were complaining in the boards about zero payouts and zero bonuses across all the games.. And now I know why!.. They basically ripped off their punters for a week and then sold out without mentioning it to anyone!. Well done JP - bunch of crooks.. I delete them from my sites - for GOOD!

    i would be very careful and would use a very long pole to touch egogaming, i have been looking for a manager for around 4 months, i sense i was ripped of by them and i tell you why

    Offer Gross Clicks Unique Clicks Clicks Conversions
    EUcasino 1,240 910 910 382

    I started to promote in July, i got paid very good for some months then, nothing, leads continued and increased but no new depositors... i mean, i got in 2 month an average of 4 or 5 NDC, this is the minimal really for any new brand entering in my forum, very strange, when i gathered data from my forum asking people to send me deposit slips and email confirmations i even gave away a phone just to motivate them and i saw a lot of them depositing and yet i was not getting paid any more, now i was told ego was aware and i proceeded to remove them from my prime spots. I tried to send info and get aff managers in skype but it is absolutely a nightmare to talk or reach anyone in there, all i have now are articles that i rank for their own name...

    My players are absolutely hating it, comments such as:

    "They've taken away nearly everything that made that site special and a joy to play on. It's a very sad day, indeed"

    "Sad day :("

    "absolutly no reason to play hear now. r i p jp"

    "Shit site, looks absolutely terrible. Slots are laggy as hell for me.
    It's missing a lot by not having the jpp progressives.
    I won't be playing there anymore"

    "Absolute joke!!! Completely ruined what they had. They sold out and now you have a new site to rape your money from you. A sad day in online gambling"

    I have to agree tbh slots keep crashing and not resetting to where they should be, thats if they load at all, fixed window size shoddy rip off of the old look, no chat, no progressives, slots are the cheaper looking lease version, no quality slots to back up the loss of the good games, no community progressive slots.

    Good bye JP income, it was a fun ride but all seems now lost.

    I am in agreement that income will dwindle.. We use to market EGO & removed them after we realized we were wasting time! Shame this has happened & players are not going to be happy with a casino that crashes constantly :(

    that is really bad news. Now - as I recall... didn't WMS own that casino directly? If that is the case, would new slots from WMS *ever* be introduced to this new casino? And why would it be laggy unless this thing was rushed to another server with far less power?

    Sounds like a really bad experiment to me. I feel sorry for players at JP that still had tons of money in their account - what happens to them if they want to withdrawal due to the shoddy performance or possibly losing their favorite game(s)??

    They should still get paid out, my balance after transfer and free tenner was £12 something, got that upto £980 and thought what the hell im sure theres a term somewhere i cant get that much out for free. Did daft high roller bets and have £300 left so im going to see how that withdrawal goes. Im not the only one banking off the free tenner either so ill be chasing how they get on aswell.

    As for new wms slots GD, they have the same as every other casino offering wms slots but they dont do it well at all, had to log off and back in several times to get it out of demo mode it put itself in.

    This now looks like a casino that hounds you with emails with great hybrid cpa commission deals that have nothing to keep the players coming back for.


    It must have been a whooping sum of money it sold for and with that i think the buyers ran out of money developing it or had 3 minutes to scrape some code together.
    (I bet its hosted with GoDaddy lol)

    All in all a loss to online gambling imho and after they hyped it up this month that something magic was happening "The magic was the disappearance of Jackpot Party" which was pretty a bad trick.

    Edit:

    And why would you buy a good casino and change its name? All they did it seems was buy players, close down jackpot party and do what other sites are doing but not nearly as good?

    Im very interested in finding out more about this sale and wms future online portfolio.

    I always thought Jackpotparty.com was a stable casino with a lot of players. Maybe they're getting out while the going is good. Either way it's a sad day for affiliates, who I'm sure will once again wear the brunt of this sale, by lose of tagged players and commissions.

    I agree with everyone else. RIP Jackpot Party :( it was fun while it lasted.
    I never made much commission with them (in fact, I gambled away much more than I earned!), but at least I trusted them 100%.

    I too used to work with EGO, but dumped them after it became clear they were a totally useless affy program, full of false promises and suspect stats.

    JackpotParty was owned by WMS and since WMS has been licensing their slots to various online casinos (with a lot more to come), the writing was on the wall so to speak.

    I've read about EGO at a few forums and it doesn't look good :( Let's hope they prove affiliates wrong

    could not make a lot of money with them despite some good traffic now I know why, the shaving is still highly an issue in the affiliate world, should be treated as a crime.

    Blackmail!

    I was contacted by "my new affiliate manager" at EGO, and she said that if I didn't change all my banners & links from Jackpot Part to Slots Magic on my sites, that they would not pay me any further commissions for they players I brought in to JP.

    This is nothing short of blackmail and stealing :mad:

    This company has demonstrated (again) that they are totally unethical and are only interested in their bottom line.
    Sorry, but any affiliates who choose to work with these guys are fools.

    Size 12 boot planted firmly where the sun don't shine...!

    Agreed. Last time I checked theft is a crime in most countries ;) Though until someone or a group of affiliates take a program to court, this will continue to happen!

    We added banners on the forum & was the response...

    Hi Christine,

    In order for us to allocate your old JackpotParty player data and for you to get affiliate commission for February you need to confirm you have replaced all your JPP banners , links and reviews on your site /s by Thursday 27th. In case you are not able to do that by the 27th, please tell me a timeframe

    WRONG thing to say to me lady, I don't get told by anyone who I can and cannot market or where I will market companies... They should have have just said they were
    stealing all our players!!!!!!!! I will have them listed on the DO NOT PLAY list and I hope everyone warns their players away from these crooks! I will do all I can to get the word out to everyone!

    That is incredible that they would be so slimy as to insist you swap your banners for their new brand or they will do what? withhold your commission? Who actually made any money with them?

    For those five people you guys should place the names of the people you worked with there right here so I can stay away from them. :) ty!

    I've heard the same from other software companies running casino brands, they are tired of B2C and going back to B2B.... if you make casino software, getting into the consumer part (dealing with affiliates and players can weigh you down on the development side of things)... hard to focus on development with all that extra stuff going on.
