EuroKings = Class1/Maxima

Posted by THEPOGG in Blog.

EuroKings LogoEquals SignClass1 Casino Logo

While doing some work for a project that will be announced in the next 6-8 weeks, I happened to be looking at the EuroKing Affiliates website. I went to copy their email address from their contact page (http://affiliates.eurokingcasino.com/about-us/) using the right click, copy email function and something rather odd happened. When I pasted the email what was displayed was support@class1affiliates.com.

For those of you who don’t know who Class1Affiliates are – it has been a few years, they supposedly closed down in 2011/12 – they were the affiliate program that represented the old Playtech brand Class1 casino. Class1 casino was a rebranding of Maxima casino.

These groups had an extensive negative history. These two Playtech casinos ended up with Rogue status at CasinoMeister due to complete disinterest in communication about complaints. The complaints coming in seem to have related to non-payment, fund seizure based on vague terms and conditions and retroactive term changes being used to deny winnings. They were a pretty sorry group overall.

See,

Affiliates also appear to have been angered when Class1 casino abruptly closed their doors, not informing affiliates for several weeks, leaving many of their partners sending traffic through to a group that could no longer accept players, though the physical system appears to have been capturing player data in the interim.

Back to the issue at hand – the EuroKings Affiliates support email address is clicking as ‘support@class1affiliates.com’. See below for screen shots of this in both browser and source code:

You can also see other affiliates have copied this address into their content:

Given the above I decided to look a little further and dug up an old copy of the Class1Affiliates site – https://web.archive.org/web/20110924103527/http://www.class1affiliates.com/EN/about – to compare to the current EuroKings Affiliate site.

The above text, given that it is a word for word match between the two sites for the majority of the content on both sites, on top of the still active Class1Affilaites email address, in my opinion is fairly substantial indicators that EuroKing Affiliates is just a rebranding of Class1Affiliates. There may be other possible explanations, but to my mind this is by far the most likely.

Both players and affiliates would do well to bear this in mind when deciding whether to sign-up with EuroKing Affiliates or the brands they represent.
