    The title should be edited. It is not a casino itself that did this. Anyways, it is not that big of a deal.

    This week got 3 emails from the bank (in Spain) mentioning that a loan is probably more needed now than ever, pornhub offering free membership, tons and tons of offers. in the world wars companies used the situation to push their products (hot chocolate, gravy) personally i don't find it offensive however I understand in 2020 there are many more people that are sensitive and offended by everything and mount hate campaigns against those that dont think the same way they do.

    Right now a huge amount of businesses are about to crumble, people dying and people are more offended and worried about the pathetic stuff.. this is from people that make a living from other people losing money.

    The death of one, is the bread of another.

    This kind of behaviour is of course exactly why regulation leads to more and more rules. And why more and more brands are dropping affiliates or annoying them with compliance stuff. CasiPlay didn't send the mailer by themselves, one of their affiliates did.

    It's lack of taste, for sure. But that's over-regulation also. This kind of behaviour leads to over-regulation. over-regulation leads to people looking to make money outside the regulated framework...

    I wonder how long before they get shut down.

    I do not think any regulatory body will care about this one now, they have much other things to do. More than that, it not really abusing the system.
    We have the responsibility as a community to remember and keep away from those whoa re trying to do bad.

    BTW
    Two of my affiliate managers called me to ask if im ok, if I can work well with my freelancers or i need some help with content and creatives.
    This is community, people who actually care, more than TRAFFIC TRAFFIC TRAFFIC
    Keep safe and care for your partners !

    I have seen so many genuine chats from players asking whether they will get coronavirus by chatting to us... on live chat... from their computer. :/

    And that was WAY before any companies started taking advantage like this thread shows.

    Oh dear .... faux outrage coming from those who make their money off the backs of many people's misery, getting all concerned about the wording of an advertisment. Where is your moral compass when you are spending "earnt" money that has cause arguments and families to breakdown?

    So it's the pub owner's fault that a wife/partner gets beaten by their alcoholic husband et al, who was served alcohol at, the publican's pub.

    Last time I checked, you had to be an adult to be served alcohol, just like you have to be an adult to gamble.

    If an adult has a problem which is affecting their life & or others around them, then seeking help is being a responsible grown-up. If gambling is making someone's life hell, then they should seek help to STOP gambling, simple.

    If they choose not seek help, that's not mine, the casino(s) or for that matter, the pub owner's fault.

    Because that is the most human reaction. To detach ourselves from our own action. To seek simple world, where there is fault and blame and of course everything is the fault of other people. Picking up some stupid strawmen just to prove that our vision, our lives of the right vision and right lives TM.

    I am starting to laugh at myself when I was thinking that gambling affiliates will be different that the gamblers itself. Hell no, we are the same stupid people full of bs excuses. Like if it makes any difference for the lives of gamblers if we promote gambling with or without corona/bonuses/freebets. This false narrative is simply here so affiliates can go on with the lives we live, because we can bs here on forum how horrible, horrible is to abuse such a dire situation like corona. While even my 20 banks, water company, and all affiliate companies spam me with corona narrative.

    But deep inside everyone knows that the best what can happen in that some freaking out poor soul will lose under our account literally everything he has. Then he has to max all credit lines. Then he has to kill himself. This is what will be our biggest success, but only if we can defend ourselves with all this bs of false ethics.

    Correct. It is a clear idea from the same think-tank as following:

    There is a need to draw a line between the leaders responsible and the people like me forced to serve as mere instruments in the hands of the leaders

    There's hypocrisy in everything.

    The Jews were persecuted by Hitler and the Nazis. Yet, that same race; who supposedly experienced all those war-time atrocities, most seem to be quite happy to actively exterminate each and every man, woman and child who are Palestinian.

    Protesters taking a stand against animal cruelty, but have no issue wearing clothes made by slave labour.

    We can bang on about this morality compass, till the cows come home.

    However, I still stand by my statement: If your an adult (not under any duress) then it's your choice, and within your own power to seek help. If one chooses not to seek assistance, then it's no one else's fault.

    It is your game to play it for good men/bad men. Do what you want. For example derive from the fact that no one is innocent that exactly you are the good boy. It is not my business really. I was just the idiot who thought that people in marketing are a bit smarter than they really are. But in fact we must be the dumbest of the circle.

    I never said it was. I said people people and their "outrage" over the wording of an advertisment, are here acting all moralistic (the cream of the gambling affiliate industry) whilst feeding off the misery of others. As long as they are fooling themselves hey .....

    Maybe someone can explain what two F***S difference it makes if you use the word coronavirus in an advert? What they find so absolutely disgusting about it? I'm dying to know, or is it just a case of classic virtue signalling?

    A % of affiliates include warnings about the risks of gambling. They also link to organisations who help problem gamblers. That may also extend to promoting casinos, who, actively embrace a responsible gaming ethos. A small proportion of affiliates choose; they're adults, to promote casinos in a less than ethical manner. That's their choice - it's not mine!

    I don't see Coca Cola saying in their ads: Consumption of excess sugar is bad for you, our products may contain high levels of sugar.

    Least ethically driven affiliates post 'warnings'...

    Each to their own, individual core values. What you may see as superficial, someone else may see the opposite. I personally find using "coronavirus" as a marketing ploy, unsavoury, and in bad taste.

    It's akin to lets say a Petroleum Company, using an ad in Israel, saying: Be a smart Jew, our gas wont kill your mileage.

    My main issue with the whole outrage over using the word "coronavirus" for a casino ad is it makes no difference at all, there is litterally no selling point to it. What kind of dimwit is actually going to be sold by reading an ad like "Coronavirus Safe Casino"? You'd have to be seriously lacking something in the first place. Making the whole issue about using the word "Coronavirus" rather stupid.

    To me I see the whole gambling niche on the same level, I don't particularly feel that there is some low down level of the niche, it is rather a low niche in the first place. The only thing I consider lower is targeting mentally unwell / too old to know the difference kind of people.

    Also give it another year, and people will be laughing about the Coronavirus. Life goes on.

    Probably for same reason electrical goods have warning labels these days.

    The same rationale could be used to ask the question... Who in their right-mind would sign up to a program, who gives all affiliates a flat 60% RS. Furthermore, who would sign up to a program and not fine-tooth comb a program's T&C's. Same goes for players too.

    But the evidence in our industry, certainly points to a LOT of people, doing exactly this.

    Smooth how you turn my comment into laughing about the coronavirus into laughing about the Jews being gassed. Where is the relevance, apart from in your head.

    Like you tried to turn my other comment into landlords serving beer. Well going off that logic, people dealing smack aren't the issue, it is the people taking it. Yeah right. I see.

    I think I'll leave it here, you obviously have a chip on your shoulder about something. But hey, great to see all the moralistic people here who are feeding off others missery.

    Tell me all you people full of morals, who are the people who make you happy. Old Dorris who loses a tenner and never comes back, or that dumb fool who keeps throwing 10s of 1000s in a month. I think we all know the answer here. Seems some people have issues with the truth.

    Good night ladies.
