    Got the same email too, and been promoting them for years. Loyalty means zip.
    I am getting to the point that I won't sign up with New Casinos if they are Licensed in the UK, as this is a perfect excuse for them to close your account and keep your commission.

    Absolutely right, Topboss. But this will ultimately only affect them in the long run and they will unfortunately lose business if they do this. All the affected affiliates can always compensate for these losses by finding reputable programs who actually want to work with them.

    Lost revenue of an existing player base is simply lost revenue. Once they've promised to pay revenue as long as players are playing. Now seemingly they're not doing what they've once promised and cut the revenue. Nothing to compensate, it's lost.

    Having e-mailed the affiliates department, general mailbox and the directors last week, nobody has bothered to reply back so I'm going to rogue these idiots across our sites.

    Clearly they want to screw affiliates over and have no intention of telling the truth to any of us here.

    So what are we all doing, contacting UK Gambling Commission?

    I think best to find a solicitor and take group action. I can show you that since I started complaining, they have started issuing removal of LIFETIME COMMISSIONS that we had from TradeDoubler.

    I think if we sue them as a group we will get a good payout.

    Latest contract changes which I will not agree to as I will sue them.

    We have made a number of updates to the Gamesys Affiliate’s Programme Agreement. Here is a summary of the key changes made:

    1. Effective Date – 30 October 2018
    2. Clause 4 – always comply with our instructions and provide us any information we request
    3. Clause 6.4 – all social media marketing requires prior written approval
    4. Clause 6.5 – all email marketing requires prior written approval
    5. Clause 6 – send your advertising materials to Gamesys at least 2 weeks in advance of target date for written approval
    6. Clause 6 – tell Gamesys if you change or add to your marketing channels, e.g. SMS marketing
    7. Clause 15 – new GDPR obligations when you are a data controller
    8. Clause 15 and Schedule 5 – new GDPR obligations when you are a data processor
    9. Clause 6.3 – comply with all applicable laws and guidance, e.g. CAP Code
    10. Clauses 13.3 – your account can be closed or suspended for any reason and at any time, and no commission is payable after this (including “lifetime revenue share”)
    11. Clause 13.4 – even if you haven’t breached the terms and conditions, we can close your account on notice (similar to way you can choose to leave the Programme on 7 days´ notice
    12. Clause 5 – if we think you have breached the terms and conditions or any applicable legislation, we may withhold and retain your commission indefinitely
    13. Clauses 8 and 9 – new warranties and indemnities if you breach the terms and conditions
    14. Clause 10 – sets out Gamesys’ liability – please read carefully and seek independent legal advice before accepting the terms and conditions or continuing your affiliate services

    This seems a tad pointless if they've ditched their affiliates doesn't it?

    Mental note to put this program on the never ever list.


    Clauses 13.3 – your account can be closed or suspended for any reason and at any time, and no commission is payable after this (including “lifetime revenue share”)

    Same here with our account as well. Absolutely unacceptable behaviour, first was Sky, then Gamesys. It will happen more and more often in the future :/

    They are ditching us but want us to accept terms that make it more legitimate for them to do so? Talk about asking turkeys to vote for Christmas.

    The Gambling Commission has no real involvement with and most likely could care less about affiliates, except they would most likely prefer we did not exist so that had more control over every word stated about all operators.
