    I've just noticed that Leo Vegas has new terms - actually forcing new terms (you can't log in without accepting them - which is BS in my opinion).

    Get this:
    Oh really??

    :lolup: So, I guess they have a right to fine me Euro 50,000 if I don't use their marketing material like the content for their reviews? What it they get thrown into the rogue pit? Do I get fined for that two?

    The more I read these terms, the more miffed I get. They are intrusive, insulting, manipulative, and rogue in my opinion. And in order for me to check my stats, I have to "agree" to them.

    Makes me sorry I ever put them through the Baptism by Fire and placed them on the Accredited Section.

    I logged in to my LeoVegas account just now and found this gem in my Inbox: (Note, they did not email this to me -- they just quietly slipped it into my Netrefer inbox.)

    In their email from 1 November, they did not ask for a reply. The email "provided guidance" and outlined what is not acceptable. At the time, I thought "okay, fine, no worries here," and went on with my day. I don't use banners, I wasn't promoting any bonuses, and I don't promote them via social media or SMS. And we have the 18+, Please Play Responsibly, and the link to Gambleaware on every page.

    If they wanted a reply to their email, they should have asked for one in the first place, instead of sneakily freezing my account.

    Edited: Neil and Bryan beat me to it. :D

    For any affiliate that they threaten and go forward with closing his or her account, they should be obliged to shut down the referred to players' accounts.

    If the UKGC would step in and demand this, I bet these affiliate programs would think twice before alienating their "partners" with these condescending and excessively overblown threats.

    It's a money grab. They are looking for excuses to close down any affiliate account big or small. Am I right?

    That's a good idea. And yes, I think you are right. I had the same thought about the money grab.

    Exactly what they are doing - They are watching big fat rogues like Ladbrokes, Gala, Paddy Power, SkyVegas and others get away with Murder. Stealing MILLIONS from Affiliates and nothing is being done or challenged (Respect to Webzcas for taking on Affiliate Edge)

    Time for them to get their piece of the pie and STEAL your players who were introduced BEFORE these guidelines came about. Naturally those players have nothing to do with this fiasco. Nevertheless, they will be taken and you will be robbed - and there's f*ck all we can do.

    I didn't really have a problem with the fine at the time I got the email , I've been complaint long before the recent fines. What makes me laugh is when they (all affiliate programs) say 'due to recent changes in the law', er, no, the laws have been there for years, the programs just decided to ignore them, now they have been caught its all the affiliates fault. If the laws weren't there, then how were fines handed out, you don't get fined for breaking a law/rule that wasn't there.

    As for LV, throw them in the pit. Simple.

    I had this e-mail in my Netrefer inbox dated today too, and likewise I had NO LV affiliate/warning notification earlier in the month. Do I get fined 50,000 euros? :D

    Just checked my account and lo and behold i have the same message and frozen account.

    We are asa and ukgc compliant and have always had a major emphasis on addiction resources. We emailed Leo for them to provide feedback but never heard back.

    Very unprofessional and untoward.

    Weirdly my account is open and no message. Nor did I get any email saying I had to reply (that I remember) so not sure whats going on.

    Regardless, screw that shit, they aren't checking my books, so they aint getting promoted. Simple.

    Your account will be open - it's the fact you won't get paid for any sign-ups whilst you are not confirmed by them.

    There are a number of websites that are in violation of this new policy.

    There are no +18 logos, links to terms and conditions, etc. I wonder how long these links will stay active?
