So they closed my affiliate account...
Without even the courtesy of an e-mail saying why.

So they closed my player account... by basically not allowing me to place ANY bet on anything...
Without even the courtesy if an e-mail saying why :(

So I took out the £1.000 I made from my last £400 deposit...
And I say f**k the *ankers!

Looking for a decent new UK based bookmaker/casino operator...
Seems like Bet365 could be my new home... :cool:

Same here, had my affy a/c summarily shut too. Was asked for ID checks in e-mails, supplied them and then had no reply, a/c shut about 3 weeks ago, no doubt keeping any earnings. The programme, surprise surprise is now in Israel btw.......

Had my affiliate accounts closed with Ladbrokes, Gala Casino and had a nightmare with my Coral one.

I didn't get any emails about the ID they were asking for, but from other forums, not everyone was getting them so wasn't worried. Noticed mid August my Coral account was set to 0%, so emailed them. Then emailed again....and again....and again. Ended up sending 25 emails to 6 different affiliate managers before one bothered to reply a month after I first contacted them. Then took him a month to send the contract so I could sign it. Finally got the account back to normal on the 10th Oct.

They refuse to recalculate commissions for that period, even though theres an email in the messages section of my affy account showing I tried to contact them on the 11th August. Cookies didn't track for the 2 month period either, well they say they did, but I went from getting about 30 clicks a day, to 0 clicks per day for 2 months, which, as soon as the account was set back to 25%, went back up to 30 a day :mad: so obviously the links were deactivated.

The only reason I persevered was that I get roughly £100 a month from them, and in March its usually a couple of grand (Cheltenham). Not a fortune but enough to get it re-opened for.

Never made a penny from Ladcrookes, nor Gala, but I didn't really push them. I'm doing a new affiliate site though which I was going to promote them on, but cba to get the account re-opened.

I had my Ladbrokes player account limited about 15 years ago for putting a £10 bet on the all weather, customer service's reason, and I kid you not, was that all weather racing was easier to fix then normal racing, as I had had a big bet on it they had to limit my account to a maximum 7p stake :eek2:. My 'big bet' was a £10 SFC on a favourite and second favourite that LOST! I'm sure if I was fixing races I would have been betting more than £10 which would have gave a return of around £50 :D . Never spent a penny with them since.

William Hill, BetVictor, Bet365, Boylesports are all decent bookies to use, as are SkyBet (from a player perspective).

They have never cared about affiliates. Senior management that is. Then they morphed into Score and moved the affiliate dept to Tel Aviv. Final nail in the coffin.

Amazed they closed your player account also though KK.

When I worked for them between 2000 - 2005 in Gib they were a great place to work and also play at.

This may help relieve some of the frustration...



Ladbrokes Back in Court Over £71 Million Tax Debt

Ladbrokes is taking on HMRC once again after its tax avoidance case was granted a hearing at the Court of Appeal. Prior to its 2016 merger with Coral, Ladbrokes found itself in hot water with the UK’s tax authority because of a scheme devised by accounting firm Deloitte.

When the initial case went to tribunal in 2015, judges ruled that Ladbrokes’ bid to exploit a 2008 legal loophole (which was closed months later) wasn’t legal.

In February 2017, the gaming firm was back in court to hear that a group of judges had agreed with the initial decision that anti-avoidance rules meant it was liable for £71 million in tax payments.

...

However, with HMRC suggesting that it has an 80 percent success rate in cases such as this and nine of the 11 companies originally caught already conceding, the odds are against Ladbrokes at this point.​

They didn't actually close it - but from about 6 weeks ago I got a strange error message every time I tried to play any slot there: the slot would load up looking completely normal, but as soon as I hit spin it just said "error - try later". I probably tried about once a week for 6 weeks.
Then late last night I tried to place a bet on a TV program - and it just kept failing with no reason given.
So I took my money and ran!

I see Bryan changed my thread title: it wasn't a typo - I was just being polite by putting "Ladbrokes = Bankers" :p

Ladbrokes closed my affiliate account (and stole my player base) a few years back when they decided to boot all of their U.S. based affiliates -- despite the fact that I had a UK bank account where they could pay my commissions. They truly are wankers.
