    Just now, TWO spam "£25 free, no deposit required" emails promoting Ladbrokes. Same content, but different (probably fake) senders, and what looks like bogus London postal addresses for the "marketing company".

    Ladbrokes used to be one of the select few that didn't spam, and any Ladbrokes mailer was because of my account.

    I thought they had given me £25 to entice me back again, not that I can actually deposit REAL money & take part, because it's in Neteller:rolleyes:

    A quick read, and it is just a picture, a spammer's banner with a generic offer of "register via this email". Complete bollocks, since I bet this offer is available from the website, and without feeding the pockets of a spammer.

    I don't know about the rest of you, but when I get affiliate spams from "decent" casinos, I report them to the affiliate program. I was getting tons of casino spam from some bozo with a list of email addresses and affiliate accounts at lots of casinos, good and bad. I reported him to several of the good casinos he was shilling for and guess what - no more spam from him.

    Anyhow shoot Ladbrokes affiliate program a message You must register/login in order to see the link. and ask them what their policy on affiliate spam is and that you've received two. They'll probably write you back to get you to forward the mails and then give whoever sent it a spanking. :thumbsup:

    Maybe worth a try, but it seems to have little effect with others. It seems they only react to complaints, and as soon as one spammer is shut down, another appears. These two were unusual in that they slipped through my filters, which now trap most spam, and relatively few genuine emails.

    For a few casinos, like 32Red, spam is unheard of, yet they have an affiliate program just like the rest. It seems a few programs are pretty effective at policing this, whereas most others are not.

    Many cases of spam discussed in the forum have been frustrating, since after a lengthy investigation, all the spammer gets is a "talking to" by the affiliate manager, as though they were spamming by MISTAKE. This weak sanction suggests that whilst the rules are there, there is no stomach for strict enforcement as there is when it comes to the rules for PLAYERS.


    In the case of Ladbrokes, this used to be one that it was rare to get spam for, yet recently they have been embroiled in the "spirit of the bonus" scandal, taken over Cassava, and the spam begins for Ladbrokes in the same manner as it has been happening with the main Cassava casinos.

    It seems that a load of Cassava affiliates, along with their standards, have come on board to promote Ladbrokes.

    I thought that Ladbrokes would stop using "in the spirit of the bonus (ref: webcast- 3 march). But I see that they still use it in the £25 free promotion.

    Now they use it in realtion to the turnover requirement.

    There is a difference between having the term, and USING it. The problem was that Ladbrokes started ROUTINELY using this term, rather than using it on the very rare occasions they got screwed by a very clever, and unforseen, circumstance - such as a bug in the software.

    If Ladbrokes DO decide to use this term again, they will need to make sure it can be justified to CM, which isn't going to be easy.

    The term is usually seen as the "lazy option", whereas Bryan favours specific terms to be spelled out as to what is, and what is not, allowed. If this is done, such a "spirit" term would no longer be needed.

    I'd make them aware VWM, I know i'd like to know about it, especially if the emails were going out posing as a direct mail from the brand and not the affiliate site
