Another affiliate scandal rears its head

Red Hot Revenue and Playtech in the spotlight

Judging by posts on the affiliate community website Casino Affiliate Programs and a rapidly widening selection of affiliate websites, another affiliate scandal is brewing.

This time it involves the Red Hot Revenue affiliate management program, which apparently handles the affiliate affairs of Playtech-powered online casinos like Giant Vegas, Nuts Poker, Sierra Star and
Royal Dice.

With the Grand Prive issue (see previous InfoPowa reports) still rankling with many affiliates, this new crisis is likely to attract plenty of attention, with some affiliates already starting blacklisting procedures.

Posts claim that Red Hot Revenue has been "stiffing" affiliates for over a year and ignores communications. One poster wrote: "The issue with the Red Hot Revenue affiliate program is well known - affiliates have not been paid for over a year, and they are impossible to contact/get replies from."

Like the Grand Prive dispute, the issues with Red Hot Revenue are spilling over onto Playtech, the software provider for the casinos concerned. The provider has so far reportedly declined to get
involved in what it presumably regards as an affiliate row with an affiliate program with which it is not directly or commercially connected.

Affiliates have used the now well worn argument that if a casino allows its affiliate program to stiff affiliates, then doing the dirty on its players is a likely sequel.

Affiliates approaching Playtech in the hope of support have made little progress, it is alleged. One poster wrote: "I have been in dialogue with the complaints officer, Sarah Wray, at Playtech for approx. half a year now. She has informed me that they are in contact with their licensee, and that they were applying pressure on them.

"However, the dialogue has now shown not to be fruitful, and Playtech has informed me that they have no power over their licensee. Thus they are accepting that their licensee are continuing to operate their casinos and the affiliate program, but without the intention of paying affiliates. I think it is unacceptable that a software provider can let this happen and just say that they have no power over their licensee. The software provider is the only one who has the power to pull the plug when something like this happens."

When InfoPowa went to press there had been no response to invitations extended to Red Hot Revenues to present their side of the dispute.

The reason why your withdrawal was denied was due to you claiming MORE than four free bonuses without making a successful deposit between free bonus claims. Yes the bonus was sent to you to thank you for your previous deposit, but that deposit was more than a month ago.  We clearly state that all players need to adhere to free bonus terms and also ensure that they keep their free money redemptions to a minimum or alternatively make frequent deposits to ensure they maintain a health bonus to purchase ratio. You are more than welcome to claim free bonuses, but please make sure to deposit frequently  Regards Jason   thank you jason. yes  i know why i was  denied- as i said  i know your rules- it is me that i made an error when i see the thanks bonus- and  then i was  confused  when one day after i received an other bonus where i was eligible  that is all- you explained me  that te $40 was for active players  and $50 for no depositors - ok it is clear  for me now- just  a mistake- thank you fo r  your intervention-I am  not an  enough active  player so  i am no depositor- please i sent my documents  and i did no get a confirmaton about the  account  verification- can  you make something   for that please ? Thank you very much  for your help Jason  "

    "Hi! I started playing online casino in 2006, before I was playing slot machines in land casinos. i discovered the online casino world by simply clicking on a pub on the internet and it allowed me to open my first account on an online casino.Since I was passionate about slot machines, I preferred playing in an online casino instead of the traditional casinos because i found excitement in an online casino is much larger, it not only money but also save a lot of time while enjoying the same excitement at home.My first casino was Casino770, i started playing super multitimes progressive slot and I remember I won with good combinations.  "
