    Yep, you got it. If the player closes the browser and then a few hours later goes directly to slotocash.com and becomes a real-money player, you earn nothing from that player. Sloto'Cash keeps 100% of the money even though you actually introduced the player to them.

    Maybe this thread will encourage them to add a 60 day cookie or a Flash cookie like lots0 and tryme1 mentioned.

    Thanks for the feedback.

    The system has a 1 day cookie period. This is the setting RTG provided to our tech guys.

    It might be good to create a poll and see what is the general consent about the cookie period?

    well the second image (slotsplus) I posted show an expiry date of 1 year for the aff id anyway.

    my win palace exclusive expires: Monday, January 31, 2022 11:59:46 PM

    We really to look at the cookies for all these programs as many of them have changed as far as I can tell.

    Paul,

    I think it's great that your willing to listen to affiliates about this.

    I vote for at least 24 hrs, 48 would be better.
    I would like to see longer.

    What I would really like to see is you use Flash Cookies and set the expire for 30 days... :)

    FYI@ Paul - when I look at your tracking cookies I only see ones that expire at "End Of Session". I don't see any that last 24 hrs.

    edited because what I wrote did not come out right...

    The longer the cookie, the better. Ten years would be great.

    Realistically, a 30-60 day last referral cookie would be just fine. I think that's a fair amount of time.

    Hi Guys,

    After investigating into this matter we found out that cookies expiration date is actually set for ten years and we have a php session that we use for totally different purposes, which is what makes you think session expires upon closing the browser .

    I'd like to take the chance to inform you all that Desert Nights launch on RTG is coming in the next few days. So please stay tuned and be ready for the tracking switch. I will be releasing a newsletter later on today.

    Thanks to all for your feedback.
