    Default Hype & inChilli - Direct action?

    Hi Guys!

    First post here but most of you probably already know me!

    Like many others here I heavily promoted & supported these two casinos when they appeared last year, and as a player I really enjoyed their software.

    Also like many others I have been owed affiliate earnings going back to February - that's 6-months - despite getting an e-mail from the 'new owners' in May promising a resolution in 7-days...

    I had pretty much resigned myself to letting it go, but a promotional e-mail from Hype last week soliciting a $500 deposit from me really hit a nerve!
    How DARE they carry on trading & pulling in cash without paying their loyal affiliates?

    So I am considering taking direct action as in posting warnings everywhere & bumping them every week.
    After all - at this stage I feel I have nothing to lose!

    Firstly, does anyone think this is a really good or bad idea?
    If good - who will help me fight for what is rightfully ours?

    Sorry to start with a negative - but you've got to start somewhere!

    It's difficult to say what will actually work with them I have no idea what the current state of things are with Hype since the contact with 'Casino Licensee' (I think that was the name - I lost the email) has ceased some time ago.

    It WOULD be nice to at least know what the deal is, though, and find out if there is EVER going to be full payment to us affiliates who promoted either one of these casinos.

    All they would have to do is show up and explain what is going on, it can't be all that difficult to do. It seemed promising at first, but now just seems very unlikely

    Hi KasinoKing!

    I see your posts all the time at Casinomeister. I post as "Dave" over there; I don't post very often, though.

    Yes, I think it's a good idea. Players should know the truth about this group.

    I blacklisted them a while ago, here: Hype Gaming Blacklisted

    If you'd like to exchange links between Hype blacklist pages, I'm all for that. Several of us have already done that (see the "Additional Resources" links at the bottom of the page). If you're getting the word out by posting on forums, send me a few of the URLs -- I'll link to the posts from my Hype blacklist page.

    Welcome aboard, KasinoKing!

    They are looking more and more like a lost cause.

    I think they are still locked up in court with a gag order, suing each other. I believe funds are locked too, but they appear to be making some player payments out of pocket.

    Not sure what the right course is here. I pulled them ages ago.

    The fact that they are still marketing to players should say it all right there, someone is still in business over there, and they are taking bets at the other casino as well the Palace one I forget the name. I think something needs to be done!

    Didn't casinobonusguy say that their host signaled that if they became aware of illegal activity on their servers then they would shut down their account? Maybe worth a try?

    I have got a player too. Now he/she is depositing money overthere, damn!. I checked live help to see if they resurfaced but it is not available! The poor lad/lady does not know what hits him/her when it is time to cash out.

    I removed the links from my sites some time ago....

    Best Regards,
    Rick

    From what I hear the players get paid, just not us. The software people are apparently paying players out of pocket, but the operators are supposed to be paying affiliates as per contract and are not doing so. That's what I understood when last I had contact, which was some time ago.

    I appear to have players there winning up a storm. I took them down ages ago, it's a shame, the players keep going back, they must really like the software.

    Players ARE being paid.. That is why I see players in my Hype stats as well (even though they are winning).

    But - yes, affiliates are not and who knows if they ever will. I sure wish somebody would come in and let us know what is going on. At least mention they are in court, assets are frozen, etc...
