    What an arrogant reply of Team Videoslots.

    Alexander's business ethics, like AussieDave explained in another post, is enough to avoid them as a player too.

    Well I suppose even they realise there's no defending the indefensible, so the only thing they can really say is "take it or leave it"... :(

    I promoted them very hard a couple of years ago but never made a profit. I ended up removing their listings and now after reading this thread, I can see that I made the right decision.

    That's fine for new affiliates who signup, but what about people like yourself KK? Others (yourself included) have not only stood by VS from practically day one (1), but have gone in and defended them too. That must feel pretty sh#tty knowing they're happy to, and more so seems, they've scammed everyone, and now VS throw affiliates like yourself under-the-bus...

    Yes, I couldn't name any argument for this high costs neither. I wonder why these guys are wasting money in big booths at conferences.

    Any affiliate looking at their cost level will pass for it.

    Affiliate manager Kim Lindsjö doesn't seem to be in a hurry to reply on Skype. Sent a message on the 29th of November 2018, no reply. Sent a message on the 27th of January 2019, no reply. Great stuff. Really making me feel special over here.

    Regardless how we feel about Leopold's bombastic rhetoric, his wife passed away. He last logged in at GPWA 11'th 2019.

    He was too busy acting at LAC as they care about affiliates. IHigh-fiving, mate here, mate there...

    Any AM who I don't know, who uses the "mate this" or "mate that"... I avoid. Past experiences have taught me that this type of AM doesn't give a toss about me - it screams insincerity.

    Exactly.

    Usually that behavior like if they're your friend since child-time is to hide something. Bad conversion, non-existing retention, insane fee deductions, dodgy stats or terms, etc.

    A program should work for me because it delivers, because I can trust the stats, the fees are fair, etc. Not because the AM acts like he's my best friend.

    The reply from the Videoslot rep on Casinomeister really said it all, didn't it. They want no part in the discussion, they know it's shady as hell and just want to go on pretending like the problem does not exist. To be honest, any affiliate promoting them is doing all of us a disfavour in the long run, including themselves.

    It is really hard to articulate different variations of interest among affilistes but there should be a way to coordinate significant actions to stop promoting predatory gaming services like VS. Greedy betizens like this make no good to the industry.

    100 affiliates means 101 different interests.

    In the end, I think everyone should decide what's the best for him/her. I couldn't imagine many situations either where it's the best option to promote a brand that has this kind of insane deductions, poor business ethics en always dodging around the issue.

    But perhaps some affiliates do have more confidence and better communication with them...

    In the end the unfortunate thing is that big players will always be kept readonably happy and will find the communication to be fair and good with this kind of programs. Middle sized and small affiliates will always receive the 'speak to the hand' treatment when complaining even fair treatment and new affiliates will always be a good prey. That is the problem when the law of the jungle is left to express itself by poor regulation.

    @TTR - lets not derail the thread, PlayAttacks' terms have been checked by our certification team and found friendly, they also had a good real rev share audit result, see results here.
