    The craziest part is that there almost acquired just few months ago and now they bought a company 2-3 times their size. I wonder if will bump their profitability. Seems that the market thinks it will - the stock went 7% up.

    They are too big to buy now... perhaps that was also one of the reasons to buy Bwin. They really got work to do.

    Interesting to see what will happened to bwin.party now, this company changed hands too many times during the last couple of years.

    That is nice. Now I am really scared that I will be robbed by 888 again.

    Certainly an interesting move. Why the comment about thieves though? We never had a problem with 888 in the past.

    They just decide to close my account where I had no access to, even when I asked my affiliate manager for months to help me with that. My AM simply stopped communication.

    I got response from other affiliate manager, with his 2nd tier tracker of course, that I am welcome to open a NEW account, because it is his interest to get reward from my action. After my argument, that I would like to keep my own players that I referred to my old account, nobody responded.

    Their generic affiliate email does not respond as well.

    I have to apologize to Bwin here. I did not get response for 10 days for my question about premium.com. Now I got this: "People moving to premium are counted towards your affiliate commission. It's a VIP service for them. You can see them under your tracker Top Tier in the tracker wise or brand wise report on your affiliate account".

    I am rather editing the posts above that were misleading for Bwin. I was under impression I am ignored, because I asked twice.

    Seems that it's not the end of it. Seems that GVS might have another go with a higher bid

    1.4B for it though, that's a lot of money! Honestly, I think it's a great buy and I think it'll do better with 888 buying it. Let's hope they improve the service.

    I also do think it's a great buy. For the rest, I don't have any hope they will improve their service or being a little more ethical. I think even the opposite. They will have to cut costs.

    You think? It's quite sad to see that because you'd think with such a big purchase they would improve the site and make it even better.

    Saw this in the news this morning: http://www.ft.com/cms/s/0/5b9fd89c-3...55cbae175.html

    Online-gaming company GVC has teamed up with US private equity firm Cerberus Capital Management to launch a new 1bn bid for Bwin.party, a gaming company that earlier this month accepted a lower takeover bid from rival 888 Holdings.
