    Default Watchout ! from short term affiliate programs and brands

    Hello Everyone,
    I've recently bumped in to some brands that shutdown right after their launch.

    1- Nexx Edge Casino - was live for 1-2 months and the brand now have this on its front page:

    NexxEdge.com is no longer in operation.

    All player accounts and funds are safe and will be transferred towww.jetbull.com on Monday, July 6th, at 19:00 CEST.

    After migration takes place most players can log in with the same username and password.

    Some usernames have been changed since they were already taken on Jetbull.com

    All NexxEdge players will receive detailed information from Jetbull.com on July 6th, 2015 about how to access their NexxEdge account on Jetbull.com.

    NexxEdge affiliate? Please get in touch with Jetbull Affiliates ataffiliatesop@jetbull.com

    2- Fashion TV Casino Affiliate program - http://affiliate.betftv.com/, I received email to join them 1 month ago
    and they sent this morning this email:

    Hi everyone,
    As the first month of the BetFTV affiliate program recently came to a close, we wanted to congratulate you all on the great work you have done and the amazing reviews you have produced. We are very grateful for all the dedication and effort you have put into the program so far.
    That being said, we have a small request for you:
    For those who havenít already done so, when introducing Fashion TV Casino, in a review or otherwise, could you please specify that they are part of the overall BetFTV brand? Furthermore, if it works with your siteís branding and content, mentioning that they have a sportsbook would also be greatly appreciated.
    The reasoning behind this is to make sure the BetFTV brand as a whole is not limited to a Casino product in the eyes of players. To top it off, the URL for the gaming site is BetFTV.com, so mentioning the brand is quite relevant.
    If you have any questions regarding this request, please send us an email , we would be happy to elaborate or help you set this up.
    Thanks again for your enthusiasm and quality work!
    The Fashion TV Gaming Group Affiliate Team

    But they are very polite and they ask for review... be careful and DO NOT JOIN THIS PROGRAM !

    I think with how the gambling world is, it makes sense probably to only promote brands that have been around at least a year or two if you want reliable long-term partners. I don't bother with any new brands to be honest unless they are advertising in a big way (e.g. TV ads) in my territory then maybe I would give them a go. There are so many obscure little casino brands out there that I wouldn't touch.

    Even then it's no guarantee, look at 666bet

    My general rule is to wait until a program is firmly established before promoting, especially as that also allows you to get a decent amount of feedback from players as well.

    Unless it's a new brand from an existing program, then I'm more likely to give it a go early on.

    8Ball Games Ltd has opened a number of new brands and then closed their affiliate program with no warning. They should be on this list for sure.

    I didn't bother with 666Bet, everything about them seemed cheap and tacky.

    UPDATE: An update from Fashion TV affiliates, they replied and said that they are not closing and they now recognized
    THE email they sent was not so well written and that was the cause for this confusion.

    Hi everyone,

    I would just like to clarify that the BetFTV program is happily NOT closing.

    The purpose of the email was to celebrate the "closing" (a.k.a. end) of the first month of the program (June) and not the program altogether. BetFTV is happy with all the great effort affiliates have been putting into the program and wanted to thank everyone for their hard work.

    Apologies for any confusion this may have caused.

    I have no idea if they officially closed by WagerOn affiliate program site (Ocean Reef Casino) is down for almost 2 months and no response - so Non officially - they are closed.

    Paul had a very good approach written in another thread that went something like this "Prove that you know how to run your business, by being around for a few years, and then you will get a fair chance and a promotion".

    That being said, I think it's quite normal for brands to try, fail and disappear just like in any other business. Thank you for the warning thought. This wont be the first or last case of things like that happening.

    Looks like wageron is gone, thanks for sharing this. I've sent an email to check this out and will let you know if they reply.

    Ocean Reef Casino however is still live.

    I've sent them few emails. Anthony also tried to contact and no reply. For me if the program site is down for two weeks and no one seems to care - it means they are out of business...
