The next round of affiliate program reviews:

Firstly, Viggo Partners. They're a property that I missed off the Danguad group last week. So all the same warnings apply. Turns out that their contact email is also being directed to SlotsMoon, the sister property to another Blacklisted operation StayBet:

http://poggwebmasters.com/affiliate-program/viggo-partners/

You can read about the connections between these programs below:

https://thepogg.com/viggoslots-and-staybet-association/




Next:

http://poggwebmasters.com/affiliate-program/wild-wild-bet-affiliates/ - no terms, no response to player complaints - Not Recommended





One of the Progress Play affiliate programs I forgot to publish a few week back:

http://poggwebmasters.com/affiliate-program/lively-partners/ - Inadequate terms, contradictory information and dodgy player terms. Not Recommended.




On to the programs associated with the Mirage Corporation NV group. Non-responsive to player complaints and mostly no affiliate terms. There is one exception detailed below:

http://poggwebmasters.com/affiliate-program/casillion-affiliates/
http://poggwebmasters.com/affiliate-program/lucky-star-affiliates/ - Gagging clause, contradictory terms and conditions and lots of mentions of GalaxyPig casino in their terms, an operator that's been rogued at at least 2 other significant portals for non-payment of affiliate fees.
http://poggwebmasters.com/affiliate-program/pantaloo-affiliates/
http://poggwebmasters.com/affiliate-program/sunsun-affiliates/
http://poggwebmasters.com/affiliate-program/wcasino-affiliates/


And on that note we round things off with GalaxyPig Affiliates:

http://poggwebmasters.com/affiliate-program/galaxypig-affiliates/ - Rogued for non-payment of affiliate fees at 2 other portals and gagging clause.



Not the best of weeks overall!

This week's reviews.

Firstly with a group running on the Netagame platform. This platform primarily provides service to the Danguad Limited license that we've had a host of drama with recently. They're not on the same license so we're not Blacklisting them, but neither are we going to recommend any operator or program associated with this platform:

http://poggwebmasters.com/affiliate-program/boss-gaming-studios/

Next a UKGC licensed property that appears to have ties to OceanBets on the Game Tech Group platform. Blacklisted.

Finally the latest offering from Sarah Enterprises:

Been a couple of weeks since I last updated this thread so here's the offerings that have come up in between:

http://poggwebmasters.com/affiliate-program/bingo-rewards/ - On the Daub Alderney license. Generally good but don't define what happens with -ve balances at the end of the month.

http://poggwebmasters.com/affiliate-program/game-revenue/ - Very generous Rev ladder and some issues with copied terms, but otherwise a decent program.

http://poggwebmasters.com/affiliate-program/twin-affiliates/ - Another good offering - no problems here.

http://poggwebmasters.com/affiliate-program/magical-spin-affiliates/ - And another good one.

http://poggwebmasters.com/affiliate-program/k8-partners/ - The most questionable of the lot in that they detag inactive players after 24 months and as such have incentive to leave inactive accounts until after this point to reactivate, but broadly speaking still a positive program.

Nice to have a week with all good programs!

And for this week we have:

http://poggwebmasters.com/affiliate-program/wiki-affiliates/ - Argumentative and non-responsive to player complaints, horrible player terms and conditions and a Minimum Activity Quota. We actively view affiliates working with this group as exposing their players to risk. Blacklisted.

http://poggwebmasters.com/affiliate-program/wonclub-affiliates/ - Are non-responsive to affiliate complaints, appear to have reneged on agreed remunaration agreements and ultimately decided not to pay at all.

Not a great week overall!

This week's reviews are a selection of Softswiss operators. With regard to players they're fine, but some of them could do with significantly improved affiliate terms and conditions:

http://poggwebmasters.com/affiliate-program/golden-star-casino-affiliates/ - insufficient information and no terms.

http://poggwebmasters.com/affiliate-program/gunsbet-affiliates/ - insufficient information and no terms.

http://poggwebmasters.com/affiliate-program/lady-hammer-affiliates/ - no issues at all.

http://poggwebmasters.com/affiliate-program/loki-casino-affiliates/ - They give most of the important info on their main page, but their is no terms document.

http://poggwebmasters.com/affiliate-program/space-casino-affiliates/ - They give most of the important info on their main page, but their is no terms document.

Golden Star I worked with before.

They pay on time, but I am really having a tough time getting their invoice details for my administration. They promised me to reply at LAC, when I spoke to them face-to-face, but nothing.

Hi Adrian,

If you're having a problem submit a complaint. They don't give us an answer and we don't work with them. That's the long and short.

Thanks,

Catching up on a few weeks worth of aff program reviews today:

Again from the Softswiss stable:

http://poggwebmasters.com/affiliate-program/n1-casino-affiliates/ - Other than a slight mis-match in the revenue ladders listed no problems with this program.

http://poggwebmasters.com/affiliate-program/joo-casino-affiliates/ - Again positive, but no definition of whether they apply NCO or not so Needs Work status.


Moving on to the Aspire Global platform:

http://poggwebmasters.com/affiliate-program/bonus-affiliates/ - player friendly and affiliate friendly.

http://poggwebmasters.com/affiliate-program/emgroup-partners/ - decent properties from the player perspective, but no affiliate terms so very much an 'at your own risk' venture.

http://poggwebmasters.com/affiliate-program/lucky-thrillz-partners/ - This group has declined to work with us, supposedly because we posted a review before getting their permission to do so (lol ?!) but others have indicated that there may be some relationship between the "co-founder" of this casino and the rep for another operator who sent us abusive Facebook messages recently. Had we been aware of this to begin with we would not have looked to establish a relationship with this program. Putting all this aside though, the affiliate terms aren't great. They don't define their rev ladder, don't define whether they apply NCO and have a Minimum Activity Quota, so the terms by themselves would be enough for Not Recommended status.


Next we have:

http://poggwebmasters.com/affiliate-program/raw-affiliates/ - This program represents an operator on the Nektan and Progress Play platforms, so the usual predatory player terms. They don't say whether they carry forward negative balances or what their revenue ladder is. Not great overall.



And finally we have Alea Affiliates - http://poggwebmasters.com/affiliate-program/alea-affiliates/ - the program representing Slots Million and Lady Luck. Lots of problems here. Historic issue as this group ran Affiliate Republik and Tropezia Palace which was split off by itself and had NCO retroactively applied. They fail to define their rev ladder, whether they apply NCO, how revenue is calculated and they carry an aggressive gagging clause that allows them to censor ALL mention of their brand on an affiliates site, regardless of whether or not the information posted is factually accurate.
