I fell for this and opened an account at Fortune Room (Fortune Affiliates).

The email clearly said if you use the link in the email and download/open a new account, you would deposit $20 and receive $50 to your Neteller account with no wagering required. Nope! I opened a new account (did not have one and verified with support there was no existing account). Deposited $20 by Neteller. A couple days later, the $50 was put in my casino account, NOT NETELLER. The casino also deposited $10 into my casino account as a "first deposit bonus." I did not request this. They say I did but I didn't. I just wanted the "free lunch" $50 for $20.

Of course when I tried to withdraw the money to my Neteller (where it was supposed to have gone in the first place) it was declined. Now the casino wants wagering requirements to withdraw the "free $50."

OK, I got it. I'm stupid and the trick is on me!:(

I read the email you posted above yesterday, this comment serves no purpose.

The point being that you made a sweeping statement that "there are always WR attached." It appears you needed some proof that my original statements were true.

BB $50.00 TO NETELLER

I got the e-mail from BB and followed the directions exactly, i received both
the casinos 100% signup AND the $50.00 to my neteller account. I downloaded 2 casinos from the e-mail as instructed and got the $50.00 2 times , and both times the $50.00 went to my neteller account as promised.
I think this was a great offer from BB and I had no trouble at all.
:)

1) Affy sets up CPA (cost per acquisition) deal with casino.

2) Affy gets deposits through affy link with a $50 cash incentive to players.

3) Affy pockets $150 / $200 / $250 CPA payment, rebates players $50, ends up with $100 / $150 / $200 profit per player.

Incentive to player: bucketloads of easy cash.

Incentive to affy: bucketloads of bucketloads of easy cash.

Incentive to casino: amongst the bucketloads of freebie hunters the acquisition of whom is costing them bucketloads of CPA payments, there may be swimming a big, fat, juicy whale who will end up losing...bucketloads.

This is not something I'd have anything to do with, my personal opinion being that it's an affiliate ripoff trick. Of course, if the casino snags its whale then everyone's happy - but it's not rocket science to see how at best open to abuse, and at worst purely abusive, this technique is: the affiliate is manipulating the CPA deal by drawing in an obviously inflated number players that are there only for the $50 freebie, as opposed to a normally balanced number of freebie hunters mixed in with the "ordinary" players.

The danger for the players is that the unwitting ones, those downloading in the normal course of events with no particular eye on $50 free cash, could find themselves at the mercy of an account carrying a barred affiliate's code. Like me, for example, in my Grand Virtual case (currently under review) in which I was denied a cashout on just that basis.

Those players downloading in direct conspiracy with an affiliate obviously deserve everything they get - as does the affiliate.

This case seems to fall between the two extremes. Either way, it's something to have your eyes open to and not get involved with.

Caruso, your thoughts are really appreciated. I have been getting A LOT of flack over this (but I can take it LOL) but it seemed to be squirly and your impressions confirm that. Despite all the "encouragement" I am getting to "recoup" my loss by taking up the offer again at another FL casino, I have passed. Fool me once.............: ;)

Hi There

I am the owner of BB's Casino Connection.

Several members of BB's have contacted me with news of this post regarding the promotion that we are currently running for our members, which offers anyone who opens a new "Real money" account at any one of the 9 Fortune Lounge casinos, and then makes at least one deposit, a CASH payment of $50. Sounds almost too good to be true, doesn't it?

Well let me assure you all - this offer is 100% legitimate!

BB's will pay anyone $50 CASH via NETeller, if all of the following are verified:
- You have no previous or existing accounts at the casino.
- You registered the new account through one of the links provided by BB's
- You make at least one deposit in the new account. The minimum amount is $20.

(If you do not have a NETeller account, you can still get in on this offer! We will have the casino deposit $50 CASH directly into your casino account. That is CASH - straight from BB's to you. There are NO terms and NO playthrough requirements on the $50. This can be verified by contacting the casino support staff.)

Some people ask me how it is possible to offer this promotion, which obviously costs more money than it brings in... The answer is simple. BB's is paid a referral fee by a marketing company that advertises the Fortune Lounge group of nine (Viper) casinos. As an incentive for players to register their new Fortune Lounge casino accounts through BB's "referrer links" and banners, we have decided to refund a generous portion of the referral fee right back to the players who chose to sign up through our links and banners!

That's it! It's quite simple actually!

Thank you for taking the time to read this message.

I never went for those things.

I don't do those things and why would he do that really just give out money really. So you would get free $50 for depositing plus play your deposit and bonus too? Why would he do this he would lose so much money.

I think it is a shame that Suzecat used this site as a venue to harm BB's Casino Connection and Fortune Lounge. She did get her $50 but it was put into her player account instead of her Neteller account. The situation was further clouded because she accepted a first deposit bonus which caused her to have wagering requirements, rather than be able to cash out the $50 and run, like she wanted to do.

All she had to do was go to BB's Casino Connection forum and post in the thread they have there regarding the promotion to have it straightened out and/or decline the first deposit bonus. Instead she was impatient and played on all of the money and then was unhappy when she lost it all.

I believe that this section of Casinomeister's site serves a very important function. It is the first place I look at before depositing. When people use it as a way to get back at someone for a minor error to or express losers' scorn, it makes me angry.

The above post, nor the response from the affiliate a couple of posts above, addresses the fact that these are unethical affiliate tactices. The affiliate tells us the offer is genuine. Of course it is, it's simple mathematics: 150 - 50 = 100. Get five hundred of those and that's a nice annual score.

If Fortune Lounge are happy with this, all well and good. But it sets a bad standard to operate by, because if less cash-rich casinos than Fortune Lounge end up on the receiving end of these CPA sleight-of-hands, it'll be bad news for the player in the end. Aside from the disadvantages of carrying a dodgy affiliate code, if the casino gets affy-raped it may lead to payment issues even beyond the dodgy affy code.

Yes, the "deal" is genuine. However, as a player you would be a mug to get involved with this kind of thing or these kinds of affiliates.
