    First Gaming (No Bundling)

    No Bundling came in when they added a second casino. There was no need to worry about it prior to that, of course ;)

    Well, they did in fact bundle mine for the month of Sept. as you can see in the screen-shot below and on their home page I had never seen the "No Bundling" text until yesterday?

    I can find out for sure from FGP, but from what I understood when talking with them - bundling was not to occur.

    My best guess is that Bundling is 'default' in the Rival interface (which Rival sets up for them). Again - my guess is: An affiliate reported that bundling was happening and they got it changed to the way it should have been in the first place.

    They should respond in this forum, though, as they will recieve notification of this post. {email was changed since Debee left}

    Hi,

    I was kindly alerted to this thread by another forum member and will be responding in full as soon as I have further clarification.

    Thanks for bearing with me on this, and please PM or email if you have any further concerns.

    Charlie, I just received and read your affiliate newsletter that you just sent out and I have a very important question here...

    Can you please qualify with complete clarity what exactly the limits are if any now regarding daily and weekly withdrawals as you stated in the newsletter and I quote...

    "The daily and weekly cashout limits for players have been removed and deposit limits have also increased substantially. Please note that old limits will still apply to certain players"

    Does that mean that I as a player could withdraw $100k in one sitting if I so desired? I think a little more explanation from you here would be in order please...Thanks :)

    LOL! Thankfully we don't see too many $100K+ cashouts at either SlotPower or Vanguard, however it is a pertinent question, and I'm doing my utmost to clarify this further and also the earlier bundling issue before the weekend gets here.

    cheers,
    Charlie :)

    Looks like I can only get clarification on the bundling issue today:

    The report in the screenshot posted earlier shows $17.50 comm for Vanguard and -$82 odd for Slot Power. Final comm payment for Sept is zero because the $17.50 is below the min payment threshold so it's carried over to next month. There is no bundling or negative carryover at FGP.

    If anybody should have payments from us that show otherwise pls PM/email me directly with the details and I'll get right on it.

    cheers,
    Charlie :)

    Yea Charlie, I understand that it is below the minimum payment threshold but still in the other Rival Affiliate Clients it would still show as a positive $17.50 under the heading "Summary" and then under "Total Direct Commission" even when I only look back at Vanguard alone and not FGP combined it still does not show as an earned commission. Check that and you will see what I am talking about here.

    If you can show me somewhere where I can clearly see that it shows under ANW Comm or Total Direct Comm then I will take your word for it but as of right now it does not show that way and I have it pulled up on my computer screen looking at it right now.

    Plus even more-so than that is the fact that I have a payment processing right now for my Oct. commissions for Vanguard and Slot Power that is for $77.00 and that includes $35 for Vanguard for Oct. but does not include that $17.50 for Sep. Check that and you will see for yourself what I am talking about here!

    The rest of you guys should probably check your accounts there as well since this may not just be isolated to mine.

    Hi Guru,

    I stand corrected, you were right. There was a problem with your commission setup which has now been resolved. Please check your Sept stats again you'll see the 17.50 now correctly reflected in the ANW Comm column which will be added on to your next payment.

    Thanks for bringing this to my attention, and let me know if anything else I can help with.

    Cheers,
    Charlie

    Hi Guru,

    I'm now able to clarify that the actual cashout limit at both Slot Power and Vanguard Casino is now $20K/month providing all security requirements are met.

    So if you win $100K at either casino it'll take you 5x 30 days to receive your full winnings, unless of course you hit a progressive jackpot, in which case you get the lot at once. Good luck in your mission!

    Cheers,
    Charlie :)
