    Default GoWild + AstralBet steeling NL traffic!!!!!

    Today I noticed that all my GoWild trackers and AstralBet trackers are referred to OmniSlots Casino when I click on them from a Dutch IP.

    So now GoWild Affiliates are steeling all my NL traffic and earn money on it!!!

    All links on my website go to the same aff id of Omni Slots.
    And when I look at other websites with links of GoWild and Astralbet they all go to the same OmniSlots aff ID

    And it gets even better, when I click on a GoWild tracker I land on a GoWild landing page.
    When i click on the "Claim Now" button the website of Omni Slots opens with yet again the same aff id

    And yes it gets even better.
    When a Dutch player opens the Gowild website from google it forwards to Omni Slots............

    I spoke to Omni Slots and they told me they made a deal with Gowild to receive their Dutch traffic.
    In my opinion Omni Slots is not doing anything wrong in this case.

    But Gowild Affiliates is simply steeling money from their affiliates
    Yes, they asked all affiliates to remove Dutch links and stop sending Dutch traffic.
    But affiliates with English websites can't ignore Dutch traffic. And when they click on a GoWild or Astralbet link they should see a lander with the message "Sorry we don't accept Dutch players".
    And not send them one on one to another casino and earn money on the affiliates traffic...

    What is your opinion about this?

    I added a video where you can see the referring.

    I do not think it is ok, but it is not a scandal, because they asked you to not give them NL traffic (please take it with a grain of salt, not trying to piss you off).

    If you are not using geotargetting, then simply start now. It is for your sake, but also for their sake. Because you are still promoting them in NL where you should not if I understand it.

    Not promoting them in NL
    i promote them on an English/ German website
    And yes on English websites Dutch visitors can click on GoWild links.

    Update - They changed the referral.
    Now NL traffic lands on GoWild website again
    And AstralBet traffic on Astralbet

    I guess changing this is admitting it was a bad move.....

    I am not saying you are promoting them in NL, but you are giving them the NL traffic in the case you mention.

    From what I understood from Kindred for example, this was allowed/tolerated until approx mid 2018, but not anymore.

    It would be ok if they simply show a lander with "Sorry we don't accept players from the Netherlands".
    Instead of earning money on those visitors.

    No one sane would do this, they play with fire/Google here. Whole their site might get a penalty. I think they are very dumb.

    Dear Community,


    Considering the dynamics of the industry, especially when it comes to the regulatory landscape, GOWILD is permanently adjusting the markets it works in as well as the markets it accepts traffic from.


    GOWILD has clearly communicated to all relevant partners through the official channels that it cannot accept Dutch traffic and that it does not want to be promoted to customers in this market.

    GOWILD has also clearly communicated that it is not responsible in any way for the misallocated Dutch traffic certain partners continue to send despite our explicit cessation requests.

    For any further clarification on the matter, you can get in touch at
    contact at gowildpartners dot com

    Regards,
    The GOWILD Partners Team

    You weasels, you sold traffic you can't use yourselves - while not compensating the source of that traffic. And you didn't even inform the source that you'll do that. Weasels.

    Disclaimer: Weasels are actually intelligent versatile predators, it's just that they have a bad reputation because you can't trap them and because they'll sneak into places where they shouldn't go. Just like you did.
