    Agreed... It's a huge portal - something like that is not developed overnight!

    Seems a similar mindset has been used by all MGS casinos who have avoided telling their partners the facts, with regard to the UK Licensing.

    Yup, they gave us whopping 3 DAYS to remove Casino UK from our sites

    I don't want to hijack the thread but I think it's time affiliates are savvy to what goes on behind closed doors.

    All MGS operators are invited (I'm guessing it's a yearly event) to a conference, where it seems they all compare notes. Changes to come out of the last meeting (that I know of) held in Durban (March/April 2013) was 32Red yanking weekend and public holiday withdrawals in July 2013. They claimed it was due to UK banking (that was BS). The real truth, they got worded up in Durban that, 25% of all player withdrawals over weekends & or extended public holidays are reversed.

    32red.com/about_us/32red-philosophy---a-mission-to-thrill.html
    we have made the following pledges: (meaning promises).
    No mention on this page about weekend or public holiday withdrawals being cancelled or unless you request your account flushed, withdrawal now attract a 24 hour pending period.

    EG - If you make a withdrawal at 5pm Thursday (Gibraltar time), your withdrawal wont flush till 5pm Friday. In which case the payment office closes. Hence you wont be paid till around 11am Monday (Gib time).

    "The Fastest Payouts..." Four (4) days to pay winners. Good one :rolleyes:

    Point is, this MGS casino group is supposed to be the best of the best BUT even they have now reneged on their commitment and pledges to players. If they and other MGS casinos are happy to stiff players, then they're just as willing to make up stories to stiff affiliates too... just saying.

    I can't find it now but I recall seeing 32Red when asked why the delay in telling affiliates about the buyout of GoWild UK players, their excuse... We had to tell our shareholders first.
    Seriously, they would have been told well before this.

    For the record, I'm just not singling 32Red out here, it seems feeding players and affiliates BS is a common behaviour amongst MGS operators, and their affiliate programs these days.

    What is the point of them redirecting your UK traffic to another brand that can't accept the player? They would rather the visitor land on that portal page instead and click through to another casino where they will earn an affiliate commission and you won't.

    Of course not.

    It's like playground bullies standing over kids, for their lunch money. The other potential "playground bullies" are all watching this. With no accountability and consequences for acting badly, they too start to think it's OK to disrespect, abuse and steal from people. Before too long our playground is akin to running 'Running the Gauntlet'.

    We all bitch about it here and elsewhere but nothing changes. We do nothing o_O just roll-over and pull our collective pants down, to be shafted by the next bully!

    Asked my AM last week why i was not told about the changes - still waiting for the answer, probably won't ever come..... Starpartner is as cunning as shit house rats, at least they have shown their true colors, i sort have had figured that out anyway with the conversions that have jumped off a cliff the last 6 months.

    Bet365, bwin, Betfair are all UK casinos and are well known sites. Which is the most important thing. Millions of people use them. !!

    Sorry, what was the point you are trying to make?
    Bet365 have NCO, the other 2 are rogues - I would strongly advise against any affiliates signing up with any of them now.
    (I still promote Bet365 myself because I've been with them since 2006, despite a total of 53 months (4.5 YEARS) in the red due to NCO)


    We don't.
    I asked my Star AM about this and we will not be getting any details - we just have to trust them on it.
