    If the Kings of Pop-Ups are really going MLM, I'm going to just slit my throat now. The horror, the horror.

    I think they're going to slit their own throat if this is true. What gambler would trust a company that stoops low enough to use MLM as an advertising tool?

    Doesn't 888.com (888.biz) do the same thing? Seems like they are a follower to me.

    Hmm doesnt look good does it. Took me a while to figure it out but it's definately MLM. Whether its actually 888 behind it though, i cant be clear. Could it be some dodgy 888 affiliate set it up and uses their commission to support this scheme?

    The sites in that post belong to a particular affiliate, but 888.biz is CON's official MLM site.

    Believe it, 888.biz is a pyramid scheme, with Casino on Net on top, the guy who runs it second, and everyone else below. The top has already made their killing, the bottom is scrambling to sign up all their mothers, aunts, friends and whoever they can talk into doing them a favor.

    How shoddy can you get.

    Yuck.

    An excellent post at CAP from bewise:

    If this is judged to be a Pyramid scheme, 888.com are screwed!!!
    Such schemes are now ILLEGAL in the UK due to past scams, and 888.com are listed here on the stockmarket's AIM list.
    Hardly surprising they endeavor to promote the impression it is NOT a pyramid scheme. Until this is officially judged to be pyramid selling/marketing, what they are doing is perfectly legal.

    Here in the UK we have enough "awareness" of this brand as it is. You can't even have a pee on the motoway without staring at the 888.com advert complete with tear off reference cards. This INCLUDES CHILDREN - how ethical is it to place such material where CHILDREN are advertised to as indiscriminately as adults. Their TV banners (mainly sponsorship) are restricted till after around 9pm, and during programming aimed mainly at adults.
    Now it's Vegaswebgaming we have to "Pee at" on the motorways!

    I would suggest an alternative promotion for 888.com; Place the poster ads on the rear of the cubicle doors, so we have something to read, and make the tear off reference cards much larger, and softer - just in case:D

    This is one case of a casino that really does "Take the piss":)

    888.biz is an MLM for certain, but they are very careful to defend the fact that it isn't a Pyramid Scheme, which of course is illegal (at least in the U.S.) So, they have come up with an MLM scheme that relies on players recruiting other players to participate as "marketing" partners and share in some future riches. To be sure as with any MLM the people at the top will do well, the people at the bottom will pay their bit to get in and fund the MLM, and most will fall by the wayside leaving the hard working people in the middle wondering what happened to the dreams of riches.

    This should be in the main forum. CON running pyramid schemes is not insignificant news.

    Has Anyone had any good luck with 888.biz or is it just a waste of time to try to promote 888.biz rather than just stick it out with 888.com? So far Im satisfied with 888.com.

    I wouldn't even suggest people trying it... I have heard a bunch about this 'business' and it reminds me so much of the Amway days. Same thing. Sign up a bunch of people and get downstream money.

    If you aren't pushing the streets 10 hours a day... and if you NEVER become a public speaker for the MLM company.. you will NEVER make the $$ they say you can make.

    Same ol'.... Same ol'

    Ugh.
