    That s****.

    I guess in the end almost every rising star will end up in the hands of some rogue giant.

    This is terrible news. Another income stream likely gone; another brand for the rogue pit.

    I saw that William Hill is sueing Fan Duel for copying their about us page or something like that.

    Mr Green is such a unique brand. Hope they don't screw it up after the acquisition.

    I don't expect any major changes...
    They will probably just introduce NCO for all affiliates (old or new) and add a "quota clause" which reduces your RS to 5% if you don't bring in 5 NDP's per month.
    Nothing to worry about! :rolleyes:

    No worries, everytime they screw affiliates, after that they want to meet them at events to increase traffic again. Such a honor.

    Yes.

    I don't blame them.

    In times of more and more compliance crap, 38 million euros is not something to refuse for many. I would have done the same.

    But for players and employees, it's crap. William Hill is known for their scams.

    FWIW I'm yet to have a bad experience with William Hill and have been working with them for 8+ years now. Over that time I've been steadily sending players though so I imagine problems would be more likely if new referrals stopped. I also think their player value is really good in the UK market.

    Anyone else working OK with William Hill out there?

    I know it's not going to be popular to say positive things about William Hill BUT if they keep the team in place at Mr Green and don't mess about too much the short term impact shouldn't be too negative. Down the line it's hard to predict.

    That's not good enough in my book. Either they honor their deals or not. There's no inbetween and for us having to second is unacceptable. Rogue!
