    I got an email that Absolute Slots will change it's name to SlotsPower. Can you fill us in on how that will affect affiliates from a banner management perspecitve?

    Thanks!

    Unfortunately, as Mark indicated in his emails and post, there is a dispute currently going on regarding payment of consulting fees and commissions due to us for the services we have rendered over the last six months. As you can imagine when an owner refuses to pay a consultant/master affiliate their fees and commissions this is not a good sign. It’s basically the same thing as stealing all of an affiliate players after guaranteeing them payment for life and then adding on a failure to pay for additional services like salaries, artwork, banners, payment of the fees at GPWA and AGD etc…. that they had agreed to. We are working on an amicable solution and hope that Absolute Slots continue working with its players and affiliate tracking maintained. We will keep you posted on the status of these discussions and we hope the owners do the fair and honest thing. If you have any questions regarding this please feel free to contact me directly at benjamin@absoluteslots.biz

    Thank you,
    Ben

    Isn't the master affiliate/consultant EMG? the group owned by AMI, the group that owns CAP? does that mean Absolute Slots had a disagreement with EMG who controls the domain and that's the domain dispute? (The consultant is holding the domain hostage for money owed? or perceived owed? - sounds like a familiar business strategy of someone who likes to take things for ransom, but I'm just speculating out loud here)

    So SlotPower, has the same owner, but is now no longer run by the AMI/EMG/CAP group? I hope I'm wrong but it sounds a lot like the players might be taken care of, but the group running all affiliate matters (AMI/EMG/CAP) might stiff the GPWA and AGD? or are they just looking for sympathy.

    I just read the post about affiliates getting paid (by Mark) and thankfully it looks like they have a good owner over there, but this is exactly why I wanted to know about the other programs associated with EMG and why I never promoted A.S. when that connection came to surface even though they had a great reputation.

    As far as AGD is concerned. We cannot be stiffed because the monies were paid up front and the contract reads appropriately in that if a program no longer meets the requirements of a PCP, all monies would be forfeit along with the certification.

    We ensure that the certification cannot be continued in the event that any predatory behavior occurs. This is iron-clad.


    As for the 2 organizations, EMG and AS (or Slots Power), we will continue to work with whatever affiliate program 'takes hold' of the casino and determine their 'worthiness' to continue in the program. Until this matter is resolved satisfactorily, their sponsorship is suspended.

    Upon resolution, the original contract will be honored (assuming the program remains in good graces).

    Thank you.

    Statement from SlotPower.com

    The management of SlotPower.com wishes to inform the casino affiliate community, that SlotPower.com has no business relationship with Casino Affiliate Programs, Effective Media, Card Spike, Warren Jolly or Louis Fabiano.

    Benjamin@absoluteslots.biz is not involved with the affiliate matters of SlotPower.com. Continued libelous statements or the implication of non-payment to affiliates by the domain name owner of AbsoluteSlots.com will result in swift legal action.

    SlotPower.com will honor all outstanding affiliate and player debt of AbsoluteSlots.com. All affiliates and players will be paid on time.

    We are planning on adding additional casino brands, new marketing materials, attractive bonuses and the best overall gaming experience on the net.

    To compensate for the work associated with the domain switch, we are increasing affiliate commission to current affiliates and will be offering new bonuses to those affiliates who start promoting SlotPower.com.

    Please direct all enquiries to affiliate@slotpower.com

    OK, then someone could enlighten me about what's going on?

    Casino name change from the CAP forums

    And why is Ben no longer available as stated by slotpower.com when we can read from Ben just 2 posts above?

    Sooo who is who?

    Until I know more, I take off their promotions and redirected their links to other Rivals.

    We will be sending a cease and desist order to Louis Fabiano if these defamatory claims persist. They are entirely false and are damaging to our business. If the accusations continue we will take legal action.

    For the record let it be known that all commissions and more have been paid to Louis Fabiano. We are still working to reach an agreement for the price of the domain AbsoluteSlots.com.

    Please accept our sincere apologies for the disruption. We are doing our utmost to ensure a smooth transition to SlotPower.com and are keeping our affiliates informed every step of the way.

    Ben has nothing to do with SlotPower.com. Please address all and any enquiries to affiliate@slotpower.com

    Thank you.
