    Default Windows Casino????

    I hope I am not breaking any forum rules.

    Does anyone have idea what has happened to windows casino?

    They have been offline now for five days now.

    I did notice that some of their group sites are still up, but they are not answering email (at least my email).

    Thanks for any info you can provide.

    I saw island poker was down as well.

    The only one of the group I could find that was up is magic oasis and I don't promote them...

    Hi Lots0

    You should seriously consider representing them anyhow IMHO. Sending players here will not help your site's reputation: http://www.casinomeister.com/rogue/windowscasino.html

    Not having a dig, just saying

    Cheers

    I think he meant you should re-consider.

    Just because a Casino makes it onto the Meitser's Rougue list does not mean they are not Trustworthy. (I'm not saying Simmo implied that, but keep this in mind)

    If you do a lot of reseach on Windows, you will find both complaints about them and also you will find they are some webmaster's best earners for years.

    Due to the fact that Windows Casino has had a very high volume of complaints throughout the industry for a very long time, I have always taken a guarded approach and given very little exposure.

    The fact they have been down this long, and that no one seems to know what has happened, (even those that push them hard) does not put them in a very good light.

    True U4 but aside from the fact that players are unlikely to use your portal again if they get rolled over, I believe there is a moral obligation on the part of the webmaster to ensure that they are not sending players to a watery grave. IMHO it pays to research the player forums for feedback prior to making a decision on whether to promote a casino bearing in mind the market has its fair share of sharks.

    Cheers

    I don't think morality enters into this, it is just business.
    (If you want to discuss morality, I think we should start with the morality of promoting gambling in general. )

    I research my associations very carefully.

    I play at all the casinos I promote.

    If I don't personally like the casino or believe they are not trust worthy or allow questionable things to go on, I don't promote them.

    Windows Casino has been one of my best earners over the last four years, thatís a fact, I have never had a single customer complaint about windows casino in four years, thatís a fact and another fact is that I have had several players become big winners at windows casino and not to mention that I enjoy playing at windows casino myself.

    These are my personal experiences with windows casino, not what I heard from someone or read somewhere.

    Anyway.....

    I donít know what has happened to windows casino, but I am willing to give odds that they are being prevented by some government agency somewhere from going back online.

    I know I am losing money cuz they are down but they are losing a fortune everyday their down. I just donít see them being down this long voluntarily for any reason.

    There has been reported a few government seizures of servers in some countries, seizures based on the assumption that online casinos are laundering money for US anti-government forces. Not saying this is what happened just speculating....

    Thanks for the feedback lots0, you helped drive home the point I was trying to make.

    Although I don't promote Windows very much, I do know plenty of webmasters that have done well with them for years with zero player complaints.

    Every single Affiliate Casino on the Internet has stories such as the above, both good and bad.

    I have also heard of some of the rumors of servers being seized as well, but I think we may find later this downtime has been due to spam complaints.

    Problem resolved - the problem was with a nameserver and it has now been resolved.
