I'm not too swift with this stuff.....but i have a question...Does that mean that everybody thats owed money.....even a lot is supposed to or is going to get paid? or is it a hope/wait and see? The way things seemed, it looked like there wasn't much money to pay ppl. and some were "hoping" the money was still in their accounts....

Unfortunately there is no safety net here, payouts are in their hands and we'll just have to wait and see what happens.

I can say this though: we've got a number of Pitch-A-Bitch complaints on the table against Pitbull and they're being resolutely ignored. Not a peep on a single one of them. That isn't good news.

That's the new homepage at pitbull.com:

Those are all affiliate banners there now from several of the "Accredited Casinos" that are listed here...:eek2:

So who's the affiliate behind those banners?? Link Removed ( Old/Invalid)

That's a typo...it's supposed to read:

To cashout your balance, stand in the middle of Stonehenge during the next lunar eclipse and pray to the gods that it falls from the sky.

Hmmm....looks like no one here has a sense of humour.


On topic though, I am/?was? a member of a poker forum called 'Donkhard'

The site almost exclusively played on Pitbull Poker.

When I went to the website today, the forum is gone, and the main page is still inundated with Pitbull ads.

Me thinks that this site is related to Pitbull directly (can anyone verify) and if anyone out there has been ripped off by Pitbull, perhaps Donkhard will give you your money back, seeing how they were Pitbull's biggest supporter and affiliate.

There's only ONE banner on the site now. One for bookmaker.com
Hmmm...bookmaker.com...owned by BETCris...PokerHosts's original owner.

Nope, nothing crooked going on there. ;)

Perhaps an email campaign by every former Pitbull player to each of the sites whose banners are displayed might yield some results...like maybe they get their accounts and commissions confiscated.

Okay....an hour and 1/2 later, my part is done.

I have emailed:
Cake Poker
Rushmore Casino
Poker Stars
Aladdin's Gold Casino/Lucky Red Casino
Cherry Red Casino
Party Poker/Casino/Bets

and I have used live chat to speak with:

BetCris (owns bookmaker.com)
Spin Palace Casino
Casino Action/Golden Tiger/Zodiac Casino

In fact, the supervisor at Casino Action/GoldenTiger/Zodiac, was extremely helpful and knowledgeable on the subject and she has assured me that action will be taken. (I also asked if their casino rep would post here after they complete their investigation)
As well, the operator at BetCris has forwarded this info to his manager.


HOWEVER Spin Palace was very adamant that they will be doing NOTHING about this and will allow the affiliate account to remain open and will happily pay them accordingly.

Hi all,

I just wanted to add my 2 pence in here.

This 'affiliate' has already been notified to remove the banners and that their affiliate account has been closed. For your information no commissions had been earned in the time that our banners for Lucky Red and Aladdins Gold were shown. Likewise, no future commissions will be paid.

CWC Affiliates and the Club World Group do not wish to be associated with other operators issues. It's none of our business what they do and that should not reflect negatively on us.

If this site is being maintained in any way then you will see that our banners will be removed shortly.

Spotted these guys at pitbull as crooks when they first opened their doors... I blacklisted them back in July on my site. Too bad more sites were not willing to blacklist them, would have saved a lot of people a lot of money.

Another positive response received:

Hi Roanan,

We have asked the owner of the site to take down our banners, but obviously
they have yet to do so. We want to make it clear as well that we never
requested them to advertise for us. I appreciate your email.

Cheers,

I am pretty sure Betcris never owned Poker Host. They owned America's Card Room followed by Bookmaker's cardroom. SBGGlobal owned Poker Host. Have I missed something?

Probably right...this is 3-4 years ago...but I do know I had very bad experiences with both PokerHost and BetCris.

Was more of a tongue in cheek statement against Pitbull, not BetCris.
In fact, I was rather impressed by my livechat session with them early this morning. They've obviously learned from their past mistakes.

Kudos to the aff managers who are shutting these guys' accounts down. :thumbsup:

And just in case any of the aff managers are serving the banners from their own servers, feel free to upload this one :D
