    Cool Tired of being Used. Need a RELIABLE affiliate program.

    So, after a few years of doing nothing with my gaming website (originally due to a conflict of interest and then sheer neglect.) I have just had a full redesign, putting into place an SEO and Social Media strategy to once again start ranking it.
    I decided to implement Kindred Affiliate banners throughout the site on the build, only to get an email from them saying they were closing down my account due to not referring anyone new for 6 months (I had previously signed up 79 players with them when it was under the management of 32Red.)

    I am getting sick and tired of gaming companies expecting affiliates to put in all the hard work to refer people then to just "STEAL" the customers and keep the commissions to themselves.

    Although the site is still a work in progress, I am looking for a trusted affiliate company that supports UK sports, bingo, poker etc that won't dump me. My site is https://furnesspoker.co.uk and as I say it is still a work in progress.

    Thanks in advance

    That sucks if you were not given a warning of it, or even a chance to reactivate it again in future when new customers come again. I guess if it is in the T&Cs then they can do it but... yeah that sucks.

    You might want to look at the Betfair affiliate scheme. Originally just an exchange they have everything you want to promote, Poker, Casino, Bingo, Sportsbook and also Exchange. I have only ever had good experiences with them, but... they did eventually close my account for the same reason Kindred closed yours, but mine had sent no customers for over a year and I was given many warnings.

    I intend to work with them again in the near future.

    The brutal truth is no UK sports betting companies are any good. Well there is one, Bet365, but they aren't accepting new affiliates. Paddy Power & Betfair, Betfred, Betvictor, William Hill all have a terrible reputation for messing affiliates about, reducing rev share and closing accounts but I do work with them otherwise I'd have noone. You must avoid all GVC brands (such as Ladbrokes, Corals etc) - they are total crooks. Don't ever bother with Kindred again because you can do ok with them, have a few bad months - say a SERPS change - and still get the emails that reduce commissions or close accounts.
