Hello all, Im basically new here I guess you can say but here's my question:

Would you consider an affiliate a rogue one who advertises a casino who is repeatedly known for rogue behavior and just being a rogue casino in general?

I mean in their forum they have players complaints in there (not nearly as paid attention to by forum members as it should), but for the first time player who googles "casino bonuses" or something and goes to this site without knowing, would you consider this taking advantage of a newbie especially when these rogues are listed in the top ten of certain bonus lists on the site? Even if it was just no deposit codes, the only place these casinos should be listed in is the rogue section.

Even if the warnings or complaints are in the forum, they are just scattered threads and no such category created specifically for them. The site has over 10,000 members and from my experience only about 30 truly active forum posters. So thats a lot of people not even reading these forums. Idk jw your thoughts.

IMO, if the person who operates the forum allows posts to be made by members promoting no deposit bonuses by known rogue casino's then they are in turn giving their stamp of approval of sorts, and Yes I stand by that opinion even if the owner has a statement on the website saying something to the effect of play at your own risk.

There are several forums where people are allowed to post any free chips codes to these rogue casinos and you dont see any warning whatsoever, they even put in there own affiliate code so the player gets credited to them, to me these people are just money grapping assholes that couldnt give a toss about where they send players, and they should be rogued,

Some of these affiliates are even well respected webmasters, i wont name names as the last time i did my inbox was soon full up of childish threats, they post on affiliate forums about how the gaming industry needs
to be more transparant and clean up there act, yet they continue to promote these rogues, what does that say about them ? the word hypercrite comes to mind,

There are also some great forums where they dont allow you to post anything about a rogue casino, or at the very least post a warning, unfortunately the average person new to onling gaming doesnt do any homework and find out about these forums or casino's opperators untill it is to late,

YES!

YES!
Agreed!

Would you care to name the forum?
(I have a strong suspicion where it could be...)

They even have exclusive bonuses for rogues, a Prism manager on the boards persuading people to come and play, and a no deposit section basically dedicated to these guys. There are zero warnings on the site's reviews of any of these guys (basically its all the rogue RTGs)

What is probably the number one googled term for online casinos? Probably no deposit coupons or codes.

And will players eventually deposit at least once? Yes, but not all will. But when they do, most wont win or when they do, wont even get paid. And for some reason, players get addicted to the fact if they keep depositing they might get paid. All the while, the affiliate gets paid.

They are looked at by their members as trusted, and they take great pride in the site and the forums, but as an aspiring webmaster myself it just take great pain to watch all these unknown players willingly play at these casinos without any word from the admin. There are however posts by some members about casinos not to play at or to watch out for, but it's odd that they are all still repped on the site? Also, some casino named Win Palace (RTG) came out of the blue and was all of a sudden at the #2 rank for top online casino? Hmmm little deal was made perhaps??

Would Casinomeister allow a rep from CoolCat or Cirrus or Prism come on here and try to win back everyone's trust? NOPE

PS not trying to bash on their site because its well put together and has a lot of info (tons of bonuses as well especially some good esclusives) but idk just has been bothering me when their is a lot of true webmasters out there who I know put a lot of hard work in to represent the best of the best in online casino gaming.

Your thoughts?

Actually there are a few Rogue casinos that have reps listed here. BB has said that any casino is free to do so.

I haven't gone through each and every such rep but I know that in at least a few cases it's a situation where the casino claims to have turned/be turning over a new leaf and wants the chance to prove themselves. That in itself is not a bad thing.

In fact if you look at it from the point of view of what's expected of the reps -- be available, be responsive, etc -- it is a chance for a once-Rogue casino to honestly improve themselves. Assuming they do so that's got to be a good thing.

On the other hand having a rep here does not give them a "get out of jail" pass either. They are what they are until they prove otherwise. We've had several situations since I came on board (Dec '07) where reps got themselves listed and then did nothing for the people that came to them. They get pulled from the rep list because they're not living up to their commitments.

Actually that's how I got caught originally playing at VIP Lounge, I got a free chip, I made a small deposit, they gave me another big freebie and then another one....I was new to the whole online gambling thing then and was thinking "Woohoo, they're giving me money and if I win I can buy an island." Then I found CM and got wised up. Fortunately I never threw a whole bunch of my own money down the toilet first.

Now I don't feed any affiliate who's promoting rogue casinos, if I'm at a forum or casino listing site and see them shilling for any of the virtual group or any of the other rogues I won't click even click on the GOOD casinos from that site. People with no conscience about ripping off new players won't get a dime of my money even if they're also shilling for decent casinos. :p

Yea its ok to have the reps listed here, but the way they are handling things there, they openly have these rogue reps on the forum giving out bonuses to members and the members are just eating this BS up.

Its quite entertaining when you have one guy yelling at everyone saying stay away from these clowns and then everyone else is just like, no no lets give them a chance. Funny how its mostly the mods too..

Sorry but when it comes to my money, theres no second chances.

Whats the deal?
