    Wager Junction decided to shutdown at the end of August. In one of their announcements,
    it said, "This will be effective from September 1st, 2015, after which it will no longer accept
    new players to its brands.". I had expected from that statement that their casinos would be
    going offline, because they are no longer going to pay affiliates their lifetime revenue share.

    King Solomon's Casino seems to be offline now, but I've noticed that Windows Casino is
    still operational, and it has a new design. In August, it had a completely different design.
    Now, if they were going to close down at the end of the month, why would they change
    up the design of the web site? Could it be that they were planning to continue accepting players
    going forward and continue accepting deposits from players that were likely referred to the
    casino by their affiliates? If that is the case, it wouldn't be the first that it has happened.

    Visit the casino now, and then look at:

    Well, well... I just received the first mailer from the Casino in a very long time. They are obviously checking which of their customers are still active.

    I signed up an account with them when this was still an RTG clip back in the days.

    They are indeed quite active trying to reactivate old accounts. This is the landing page for old customers: static.windowscasino.com/Relaunch/

    Now that they are no longer paying affiliates their "lifetime revenue share" for
    players that affiliates have referred, can we have them moved to the rogue section?

    Probably... they aren't listed, I don't think we ever reviewed them.

    If they are indeed no longer honoring lifetime revenue share agreements the rogue section is where they belong.

    Casinos that have been in business for so many years should know better. Hopefully they will reconsider this action.

    They are listed in the "Certified Casino Affiliate Programs" section with their now defunct affiliate program, Wager Junction.

    Just banned one on my forum who wanted to promote Windows Casino
    First they close the aff program. Then the casino still operates and they make money with referred players and now they have the nerves to spam forums!!!??? WTF

    They probably purchased a link building package from some seo website.

    They tried to "Shill" at CM too... didn't get very far, of course!

    I didn't know they closed the affy program - not that I would have promoted them anyway.
    Having said that, they were one of the first casinos I played 14 years ago as a bonus hunter, and I did pretty well out of them!
    (As PaiGow was allowed in bonus WR ;))

    I just got an email this morning from marketingwindowscasino@gmail.com

    Thankfully I hadn't had my coffee yet, so I didn't hold much back in my reply.

    They may be just realizing that it's tough to get customers without affiliates, so if you were contacted and are here doing some research, DO NOT work with these people.

    With WagerJunction I saw terrible conversions and even worse retention, so I didn't lose much revenue when they shut down, but this still pisses me off.

    Forum shilling... that must be new management for real, completely unfamiliar with the online casino business.

    Why invest so much money in a casino revamp and then screw it up right from the start? This is truly un-be-lievable, as Simmo points out in the CM thread.

    Yup, trying to buy advertising on our site. (Flat media I believe) ...
    We used to promote them back in the day, made money, then of course it vanished...

    Wagerjunction seems to be done now for good. This is from their website:

    The casinos are also closed already:
