    Default much to beef about and some nice stuff too

    Ok, first off, fortune affiliates are down again. every single banner comes up " page cannot be displayed " Makes my site look like I dont know what Im doing. Of course they were late also with payments last month. get a grip guys. I have space for casinos that will get things done right.

    This new black dog casino. Well....They sounded so nice. they were offering great things and good promos and support was very nice. then I came across this -

    http://p103.ezboard.com/fwizardofodd...picID=10.topic

    Royal dutch or casino 1x2 memories anybody ?

    Lets talk about casino rewards. Im on a 50.00 per sign up plan. well I decided to test this out. I deposited over 150.00 into the casinos with my own affiliate link. my stats showed up. but it said they paid out more then what was deposited. No guys, since im the player, I know thats not the case. i DIDNT CASH OUT !

    This group has been promoted by me for a long time. nothing to show for it. I think im gonna go on strait commision for these guys.

    Hey the vegas red group is now allowing forums to promote them. guess they finally figured out that just plain websites dont pull in as many people. thanks guys, it only took you a year or redirecting your links to yahoo games before you allowed us to promote you.

    Casino Islabonita seems to be full of crap these days. They offer 55% commision on all deposits as long as you bring in one new customer per month. No problem. I bring them about 50 new customers per month and at least 5 deposit. Last month customers deposited over 3000.00 my commision - $55.00

    same with every month. are they paying out people that much winnings? I dont think they are. I emailed them about it. They said the system takes care of that. but they said the techs would look into it. of course they will ( sure sure ) No email back of course.

    maybe they could pay on time this month too. I miss jan. he would pop up on my msn and say hey puma, you want some money now. ( every 15th of each month ) id say hell ya ! and I got payed on time. This new guy is taking his sweet time. 8 days late last month. Thanks buddy. less effort gets less effort. remember that as you go out of buisness.

    thanks for listening.

    Hey deaddog, is this not the right place to show my concerns to others? If I feel i have a problem with an affiliate or affiliates, is this not the place to get some support or answer to my questions ? Before you open your mouth and just blah stuff out, I suggest you look at what i said. I did show facts and am simply looking for aswers that have not been given to me by the actual affiliates i spoke of. Is this ok with everybody else here, because if its not, Ive misunderstood the reason for this forum.

    thank you

    Question Casino Rewards

    Hi Puma

    In regards to the comment you have made about your Casino Rewards account, I should remind you of the terms and conditions:

    'No affiliate can profit from an account generated by themselves or by a relation of any kind to the affiliate member. If an affiliate is caught profiting from an account generated by themselves they will forfeit any earnings they have made and their account will be terminated. '


    This can be found at :
    http://rewardsaffiliates.com/main/terms-conditions.asp

    Perhaps this is the reason why you couldn't make profit from your deposit??

    I would suggest that each affiliate reads the terms and conditions thoroughly before reacting in such a way. After all, it can only help you in the long run.

    Renee

    There's nothing at all wrong with a 'poor me' post from time to time. Does you good to have a moan and share industry problems.

    I agree with Fiction, and for the most part we do not restrict both members and non-members from posting such as long there are not direct attacks on individuals and that the thread does not turn into a mud slinging match.

    Many many times we have had posts that start out on a negative tone and will lead to a constructive thread discussing a program's terms, method of payment etc. In fact, at times these very same threads have stimulated discussions which led to changes in terms with a few groups.

    Renee, puma very clearly stated he was testing out the link and I think almost all of us have done that at one time or another. Personally, I think your program is above reproach and if he did in fact have a problem he should sit down WITH you for further testing to determine why he didn't get the proper credit, but it does appear he did not run the test just tro profit from it.

    Puma, this could have been an issue that they recognized you as an affiliate and had automatically not paid on it I don't know, but discussing this directly with Renee or a C/R Rep may determine what happened.

    Let's just try and keep the thread leaning toward constructive criticism.

    Default Thank you

    I have written casino rewards to try and get an explination. I think perhaps the best thing would still be to ask them to go on strait commision. I would probably feel better about promoting them if that was the case. In my experience, cpa plans have not worked for me because i find myself getting some players and then not promoting them any more. But if commision is involved, I want to keep that person playing. I dont mean to just come in and groan, but as I get more and more into this buisness i start to see flaws that I didnt even see when I first started out. Im glad there is a place like this to chat and get out some thoughts to other webmasters. Thank you gpwa !

    Yes puma, sometimes it's just good to get things off your chest so you can clear the air a bit and then move forward.

    Looking at your situation I would agree that rev share may be in your best interest.

    Lightbulb Constructive Critisism

    I totally agree with you, universal.

    Perhaps this is the reason why you couldn't make profit from your deposit??
    This was my suggestion, which I am sure is correct in regards with your suggestion that we found Puma was an affiliate straight away.

    I personally haven't received any emails from you Puma... who did you email? I could chase them for you to see what went wrong in the communication.
    Also I noticed that you have a new account on RevShare. Has this been more profitable for you?

    If there are ever any questions regarding stats etc please do not hesitate to email me. I generally reply to emails within a few hours of receiving them unless it is outside business hours or a weekend.

    Puma - if you would like to email me we can look at your stats. Put some details in your email about what you tried to do and the outcome (i.e. tried depositing $150 to see if you would get credit and didn't) so I can pass it on to my boss.

    Cheers

    Renee

    I'm a little late responding to this post, but there are a few questionable items here, aren't there?

    Black Dog Casino has been around for several years now, so they're not new - at least 5 years old.

    You opened accounts at more than 1 casino to test, and deposited at all of them? Did you get bonuses with your first purchase at all of them? Bonuses offset initial purchases, which is probably the primary reason you didn't see any profit. Also, CPA deals always require a minimum amount of money be deposited into a new account before it's eligible for payment. Did you meet the deposit requirements?


    Some of that other stuff you wrote up there almost sounds like advertisements for the programs.....

    Default ok

    Are you serious about this? Have you done any research on the reputable boards about these 2 casinos?.........


    what do you mean reputable boards ? Do certain boards stick out more then others in regards to what i should think of these 2 casinos. I liked them, found out they were crooks and then I didnt like them anymore.

    I deposited 150.00 into the casino rewards casinos. I dont see anywhere where its says a bonus offsets the actual cpa. Mind you, I have worked this problem out. Thats why I simply said thanks.

    Blackdog may have been around for years, not in my mind and ive not seen or heard to much about them. I have a letter from them saying they are new should you require more proof that your statement may be wrong.

    ( perhaps new owners ? )

    sounds like advertisements for the programs ?

    I think you may need to look at it again. Really I was only complaining about some negative things that I find a problem with my buisness as a casino promoter.

    I have good reason to complain when i do and if not for people complaining as negative as it seems then what would be the purpose of this place ?

    thank you for your reply

    Yes, some boards are much more reputable than others.

    As to Black Dog, I don't need any proof. I've been in this biz for 5 yrs now and have an excellent memory. It may be new owners, but it's not a new casino - and if they told you that, you might want to think twice about doing anything with them. Actually, I don't know if anyone's ever done much with them - not that I've heard about, anyway.
