    Default Grand Prive / Villa Fortuna - Plan of Action

    Grand Prive / Villa Fortuna, the next steps:


    After the eCogra audit failed to produce any positive results, it became clear; our fight against Grand Prive was not over. It’s time to continue our efforts. We would like to get some thoughts from the affiliate community so we can move forward.


    These are some the ideas we have on the table please offer your feedback and more importantly, your ideas on the next steps we should take:


    1. Call out the individual Grand Prive casinos, APCW can produce videos that expose each casino property that Grand Prive owns.


    2. Looking at Villa Fortuna: Same drill for Villa Fortuna. Villa Fortuna has done a good job flying under the radar during all of this.


    3. A utilization of dormant affiliate domains, so we can flood the web with the truth about Grand Prive, with a focus on the casinos.


    4. Putting a spotlight on the licensing jurisdiction. Kahnawake have showed an interest in affiliate matters, we think pushing them to get involved would be a move in the right direction.


    If Grand Prive was upset about the pressure they were getting before, they haven’t seen anything yet!


    Please share your ideas and what you feel is the best course of action. What we have are just ideas and will be very open to what you have to say. We will gather your input and act accordingly with the feedback of the community.


    Thanks for taking the time to look at this and provide valuable feedback and ideas.

    This firm have closed an aff programme, roped in Ecogra for an audit, then not provided them with the full details re who the aff programme was paying when it closed.

    Plus apparently caused in no small part to Micro blowing the referspot data transfer, without either side having adequate backups.

    What more is there to do?

    Everyone who needs to know knows already.

    Great ideas guys!

    Can we possibly get a banner to place on our sites? I loved the graphic that was in a past video that said
    [Grand Prive` - Lie - Steal - Cheat]!

    Anything in that area will work.

    Thanks for keeping up the fight APCW!

    All aboard the crazy train! lol

    Here is something anyone can do:

    Google "Villa Fortuna Casino" or look at some of the google results shown on the GPWA wiki at https://www.gpwa.org/wiki//index.php...=Villa_Fortuna.

    Find a website that is promoting them in the search results.

    Figure out how to contact the webmaster and let them know you would appreciate it if they replaced their page promoting them with a page that identified them as rogue.

    And be sure to record what you are doing on the wiki page on the GPWA website about Villa Fortuna that is located here: https://www.gpwa.org/wiki//index.php...=Villa_Fortuna.

    Question

    xxxhttp://www.betgrandprive.com

    is this the same group?

    Edit:
    It seems all their old links have changed (grandbay, villa, bigdollar, lakepalace, bellavegas I've checked). The microgaming logo is strangely missing from the sites... software provider change?

    All right, my thoughts are this.

    The ONLY way we will ever stop rogue casinos from being able to function online to players is to go after the entities that are giving them LICENSE's to be an online casino.
    PERIOD

    I have no idea how to go after a country, business..etc that license these rogue casinos and lets them stay rogue without pulling thier license but if there is a way to make them feel the repercussions of thier inactiveness and blatant ignorance of these casinos, I am all in.

    For sure, mostly.

    The bit you have wrong:

    Sportsbook Review downgraded Ladbrokes the other day from an A+ to an A.

    Well I not so humbly disagree.

    So I don't reckon I'd agree with others view of who is rogue either.

    That's where the discussion ends, and where the rogues reside.

    Dozer's A+ ratings are a highly prized. Ladbrokes's "we're too big to give a ****" attitude, as well as screwing up the wager grading in the first place, disqualifies them as far as I'm concerned. Billy Boy did the right thing.

    That site is a joke handing out any form of rating to Costa Rican cowboys, and they downgrade a company like Ladbrokes, jokers.

    Even Casino Caruso would have to employ staff. Some won't be with you for long before you sack them.

    It's hardly company policy this we're too big to give a **** notion.
