we do not have access to the data. We were informed while negotiating the service, that all the players on the list(s) have opted in.

:what:

wait wait wait. Zing! Somebody correct me if I am wrong but I think you just admitted your company spams.

You are not using your own list? You did not provide the list to the emailers? You are not emailing your own customers?

But everyone on the list is supposed to have opted in. To what exactly?

I get those from both Red Flush and Lavida like every other day, Im in USA so I can not even join Lavida, but Red flush I already have an account so I do not understand, why these are being sent to me. I delete them immediately.

Hi All,

wait wait wait. Zing! Somebody correct me if I am wrong but I think you just admitted your company spams.

You are not using your own list? You did not provide the list to the emailers? You are not emailing your own customers?

But everyone on the list is supposed to have opted in. To what exactly?

We as well as the rest of the industry use media agencies for player acquisition. We do make every attempt to establish that the players have opted into a list on a web site or service, to receive casino/gambling information. We do email our own existing customers that have registered with the casino.

Any member receiving email that does not have an unsubscribe or one that does not work, please send me the original email to take action.

Best regards,
Wayne

FWIW Wayne seems to have gotten the spam tap turned off for my email addresses. Thanks for that, though some of the questions asked here are good ones and need some forthright answers.
Anything back from them on this?

I'm guessing their Accreditation must now be in jeopardy, no? The "Standards for Accredited Casinos" do say:

Marketing Standards

...* Must not spam, and must take appropriate actions against any affiliates or any third parties who do spam.

Perhaps that rep needs a wee reminder. :poke:


Nope.

Wayne hasn't done a thing.

I just received this a few moments ago:

As this is the SECOND TIME THIS WEEK that this casino group has spammed me, I am now closing my account and deleting the software PERMANENTLY.

Looking back through this thread I see that this particular SPAM was already reported here on March 5

Almost FOUR WEEKS LATER, I get the same SPAM.

Obviously Wayne isn't doing what he promised and IMHO Casino La Vida needs to be removed from the 'pending accreditation' list.

Hi Roanan,

Please except my apology on behalf of the group.

Your email address was unsubsrcibed from the last conversation we had. However it appears that your email address exists on more than one affiliates lists.

What I am going to do is black list your email address with the mailing companies that use our domains. You will not receive any more email containing one of our domains.

Best regards,
Wayne

Nope. Wayne hasn't done a thing.....

Bosh! Earlier there were a lot of complaints, now much fewer. It may not be perfection but my spam issues with them are history. Sounds like yours will be too.

Seems you're the lucky one.

Whats the secret to getting off "Hannah Whites" spam list ?

Dunno how I got on it. I don't gamble, and so have never signed up for one of these sites.

Have you tried contacting WayneRedreturns via PM? (Link Outdated / Removed)

I have .. but I'm still, as of today, being spammed. No surprises there :rolleyes:

One ofthe benefits of working for an ISP is that you can waste Hosts time trying get themselves off Greylists . Welcome to the world of DNSBL ... welcome to my world.

Received this today it clearly says 30 free spins on Thunderstruck two and look at the bottom it says you received this because you are signed up at Red Flush/Casino La Vida but click on the Play Now button and it says Take up your 30 free spins and get 111% on 1st deposit etc.

Scroll down the left hand side and suddenly you have to deposit to get your free spins where on the original email did it state this and it said I am signed up to the casino so surely that means I am not eligible? :confused:

From my experience and from what Ive been reading last couple of months, RedFlush and CasinoLaVida took the wrong turn somewhere and got lost. Definitely not the establishment it once was.

That looks like Club Red gaming have designed this page SPECIFICALLY for affiliates to embed into their own newsletters, websites, or spam. It is clearly WRONG for the statement highlighted to appear in the body of that page. This email has been received because an AFFILIATE has your email address, and has sent it to you. The statement FALSLY implies it has been sent because you have signed up with the casino. Proof of this lies in the fact that this is a NEW PLAYER offer, and clearly if you HAD already signed up, you would NOT be eligible for the offer.

Club Red have in this instance dropped THEMSELVES in the S.H.1.T by, through that statement, taking ownership of the act of sending the spam, leaving the recipient to believe that the casino themselves are actively spamming email addresses, whereas they have only provided tools to make it easier for affiliates to send out spam.
