    I've had some spam today, promoting winner.com. I tried to report the spam by e-mailing it to marketing.casino@winner.com (as shown on your contact page)and it bounced back as follows:

    A message that you sent could not be delivered to one or more of its
    recipients. This is a permanent error. The following address(es) failed:

    marketing.casino@winner.com
    SMTP error from remote mail server after RCPT TO:<marketing.casino@winner.com>:
    host ASPMX.L.GOOGLE.com [74.125.45.26]: 550-5.1.1 The email account that you tried to reach does not exist.

    So here's the spam:

    Hi hakank and NickyV,

    Thank you both very much for alerting us to this severe problem. We have contacted the affiliate in question and demanded that he cease this spamming immediately. Should he not stop ASAP, we will be taking the appropriate punitive measures against him.

    Default Action

    What punitive action would that be then ? It seems your punitive action from the last time did not work . So what kind of action are you taking if any at all. I just dont believe that Winner are taking this seriously or it would have stopped by now. Either that or it is yourselves who are doing the mailing.

    Hi Gman,

    We understand your concern but you can rest assured of a few things: 1) it is for sure an affiliate who is doing this, not us 2) there was no "last time" - what we had done before was warn the affiliate that we would take action unless he stopped. 3) Since he refused to stop the spamming, we have now taken action against him.

    For your information, this action in effect means that we have terminated his deal with us and he will not be getting paid for any players/traffic generated through these activites.

    Unfortunately, we cannot physically prevent him from actually sending out emails. However, should he persist in doing so, we will commence with legal proceedings against this person.

    Is this part real or did they fake that portion?

    If it is real, where did the spammer get this info?

    Surely winners emails/ids are not published??

    Hi Rick - it's fake. As you correctly surmised, we don't publish Winners IDs or emails. We do, however, put out a "limited" list of big casino Winners, which can be viewed here:

    Robbie thanks for your response and the action you have taken. As these people dont work for free - i am sure that we will not see any more of this spamming , unless that is, you do another deal with people like this who go around spamming randomly for various Casinos. The one thing that i never see major brands like Bet365 do is engage in practices like this . I guess thats exactly why i am m ore than happy to give them great positioning on my sites.

    Affiliates who sign up with us are treated as business partners. Accordingly, we are not in the habit of taking unilateral actions against our partners without first contacting them directly to discuss.

    For the record, the affiliate involved in this case is legitimate; i.e., he has a website and has worked in many legitimate ways to bring us players in the past. When we were alerted to the fact that this affiliate began illicit spamming activities, we took immediate action, as detailed in previous posts.

    As a responsible, upstanding operator, we and our affiliates have mutual obligations to one another. When we learned that this affiliate partner of ours was spamming, we informed them of the seriousness of this offense and meted out punitive measures accordingly, not paying them for any players brought to us via this method. We have also informed the affiliate that continuing such activities would be tantamount to a breach of contract, in which case he would also no longer get paid for any players he brings to us, even via legitimate means.<O</O
