    Default Do you promote rogue casinos?

    Have noticed a few affiliates actually promote rogue casinos. Whilst I understand that it can be tricky to define a rogue casino, and that just because a few players have had trouble there, a casino is sometimes deemed rogue, but I have seen numerous affiliate sites with banners portraying casinos that have regularly been in the "rogue" headlines by numerous other websites/forums/abitration site etc etc....

    Would like to know more as to why some of you promote them.

    I doubt you'll see anyone who does promote rogues actually admit it here. It's kind of like naming and shaming yourself.

    No I don't promote rogue casinos - or at least that I know to be rogue - it would not be smart to be sending players to sites that you know do not conduct their business fairly.

    However, you've correctly pointed outside a handful of very clear cases that there is no solid determination of "rogue".

    ... casinos that have regularly been in the "rogue" headlines by numerous other websites/forums/abitration site ...
    Headlines can be misleading. Claims brought by fraudulent players and two-bit "affiliates" that are trying to "game" the system to make a few bucks. The noise is loud for a few weeks - and when the claim is exposed as cheating by the claimant it all goes quiet.

    I've seen several headings and threads in THIS esteemed forum regarding major European operators - and much of it is emotional, fictional, irrational or a combination of all three.

    Yet even when proved to be incorrect - the threads remain. As with all things on the internet - just because its published does not mean that it is true - verify the facts.

    When it comes to outright cheating and lying - there are more rogues and scoundrels as players and webmasters looking to make $100 than anywhere else in this industry.

    Thanks Terry and Gooner, was not expecting that much of a response to be honest. Would like to believe that I will move any off my site should anything "naughty" develop.

    As members of the GPWA, are they not supposed to make sure that "rogue casinos" are not listed on their site? If they do, surely the GPWA would remove them as member?
