    Given Red Returns (Red Flush et al) has always been owned by the Moshals and Betway is part of Spin Palace Group (owned by the Moshals - who also own Buffalo Partners), it stands to reason, shuffling players around brands will happen. If it's done ethically and credit is given back to the referring affiliate(s), then I don't see it being a drama.

    However if the afformentioned doesn't take place and Digimedia pull a stunt like Brightshare did with ASUSA, selling payers to Jackpot Capital, then affiliates need to monitor this very carefully and ask wtf is going on!

    I found this on CM & the affiliates were not told that is a fact since I never received a notice!

    The title should probably be changed because there are so many casinos and programs involved in this.

    Affiliates will be losing a ton of players here.

    Well I'm thinking and its looking like all Digi casinos are telling players to go to betway.

    Looks like we will not gain any commission from old UK players at Bufallo/Wagershare/Referback / Fortune Lounge and maybe more. I'm not sure on Brightshare casinos but I can guess.

    At least Star Partner redirects to Casino UK and I'll say good job on Casino Rewards part for hitting it just right. We won't lose any players or have any changes with them.

    • 1'st it was FA casino's using the Digimedia Malta License
    • Then Referback casino's
    • Next thing Red Returns et al getting absorbed into FA
    • Then next thing it's Brightshare using the Digimedia License
    • Then Referback merging with Wagershare (Rogues) into Buffalo Partners
    There comes a point where the writing is on the wall. Regardless of what FA/RB/Buffalo/BS et al claim, no casino's in oposition (or owned by different owners) share a casino license.

    In so far as CR/RA... They have 29 MGS casinos and pay each month, on time, and within a few days of the 1'st.

    If they no longer send straight links to tagged players, then I'm of the opinion, promoting RA casino's is a safer bet these days for affiliates.

    All these changes at FA/Red Returns/Referback/Wagershare, to me spells cash-flow-problems...just sayin.

    The true colors of FA/Digimedia are starting to emerge. Hold onto your seats boys and girls, this could be a rough ride ahead!

    I don't think they planned on giving affiliates an official notice on this!

    That's just wrong on so many levels.

    Only have to look how the Referback/Wagershare merger was handled. And, the other amalgamated casinos/affiliate programs into Digimedia/FA, to realise, what Bonustreak say's, is right!

    Clearly they (FA/Digimedia) don't give a rats about us. And this Betway deal is a grab for cash.

    There is no way affiliate will be paid for those players new accounts. It would have to be done in a different way where player accounts where merged/moved and not where they have to sign up again. Typical.

    Right and that's the point, they could do it that way but won't.

    And in return want all affiliates to send them more new players.

    I know I'm posting to much :)

    This will have very little effect on me because I don't target the UK really, player here and there.

    This is going to crush some UK affiliates that based their sites on the market.

    Pisses me off

    I agree with you Joe. It has very little effect on me, but this blatant theft pisses me off because so many hard working affiliates get screwed. It is basically a big 'thanks for your traffic and kindness, now bend over while we work your backside'.

    This is happening ALL too often these days.

    Enough is Enough... What are we, as a group, going to do about it?

    How about we start our own affiliate group?? And contact all the Casinos? I think that would be terrific idea :-D and shut all the bad ones out the cold......
