    Exclamation Warning Brightshare... (all slots, all jackpot, wild jack)

    Hello,

    Excuse me, I'm French, so I translate Google

    As you know, I'm hunting Microgaming casinos that do not pay commissions and since the law in France, many Microgaming casinos benefit not pay affiliates because otherwise they are bankrupt. It is for this reason that Casino Reward bought many Microgaming casinos (Group share, Villento, Grand Hotel etc ...).

    After Referback and Fortune Affiliates, now I Brightshare attacks Casinos Affiliates (all slots, wild jack, all jackpots etc ...).

    I am registered with them since 2005. Never payment problems. Throughout 2010, no payment. Then they continued to pay me my commission from January 2011 until today.

    The big problem in this story is why they have not paid my commission in 2010 ? I'm not the only French affiliate in this case. I suppose if Brightshare has not paid the commissions is to prevent the bankruptcy of their casinos. Here are the statistics of the year 2010.

    I suggest you be very careful with this company. Here is the answer of Affiliate Support:
    -------------------------------------------------------------------
    Hi Philippe,

    It must be misunderstanding. Our program has-beens always transparent and honest, and paid whatever our customers They Have Earned.

    The months you Did not Have earnings or low earnings might be Caused by players winnings, chargebacks and other Reasons. I will be pulling a more detailed report so you will be ble to see.
    --------------------------------------------------------------------
    In their message, says Brightshare players have won. Ok, it happens, but they won for 13 consecutive months? So here we are in the presence of a scam and more incredible, Brightshare says they are transparent. In addition, in their message, they say, "and other Reasons" ... As an affiliate, this last sentence is in fact rather a lack of transparency.

    So I advise you not to advertise their casinos and casinos rather to have been honest with French affiliates:

    - Casino Reward - ReferBack - GoldenStar (golden riviera, rivernile etc ...), Red Return, GoWild, 32Red.

    For Fortune Lounge, do not post it because they are very clever to avoid paying. Before Microgaming casinos were really honest, but now they are the most ripping affiliates.

    So be careful ...

    Phil.

    Hey grattag, since BrightShare is one of our listed programs, we're in the process of connecting with them to get some clarity on this. Will update you as it comes...

    Hmmm makes one think. This is the only Microgaming casino we promote that haven't made a dime with yet and they have top-exposure on our site.

    Hi Cassaoon888,

    This is the time to think. Believe me, I'm in the casino games since 2001. I know very well the casino groups. I can say today that we must be wary of this group of casinos as well as others, such as Fortune Affiliates. I will not allow myself to post this dispute with Brightshare if it was not true.

    Moreover, if they are not happy, BrightShare has only complaint, I expect. Change casinos top position, believe me, they alter the statistics. 13 months without commissions, it is impossible.

    Hey Sheadey,

    It's nice of you, but I doubt you get to clear explanations with BrightShare. This is one month this dispute and each time they respond with evasive messages without real explanation.

    You should know that when I discovered the theft of my commissions, I did not access my statistics for 2009 and 2010 on my interface. I had to get crafty by email.

    If other French affiliates do not complain, it's normal, I was one of the largest affiliate of Microgaming casinos in France for 8 years.

    Sheadey thank you for your cooperation, but more importantly, good luck ... I think the scam $ 12,000. If you get the payment, I certify this message that I send you 10% of the amount stolen.

    Bye Sheadey

    I've been a gaming affiliate since 2000 and while I have no issues with Brightshare that I'm aware of, other the wrong affiliate payment dates which have since been sorted out. The point is, I have literally 10's of 1000's of players who I have referred to casinos. Prior to the UIGEA, while I didn't make a heap from USA traffic, my month to month, year to year stats told me that the ratios of clicks, sign-ups and deposits were within an acceptable level, as too were the number of players at each casino who were winning and losing.

    However, since the UIGEA and the effect this has taken on other Countries being banned by Microgaming etc etc, not to mention our market is shrinking, each month I'm seeing stats which simply don't add up.

    In regard to Microgaming, I too am a player and I'm not a low roller either! I can assure you the games are certainly not paying out like they used. Certainly no where near the wins I used to get when the USA could play. While it is still possible to get a hot run, these are few and far between. I'm not the only player who has questioned MGS software. Take a look over at CM and other forums to see what other players are saying.

    Correlating my losses month in month out, at the games have literally bleed me dry from deposit after another. At one point it was 6 months before I managed a withdrawal. That over 500 deposits.

    Yet when I check my MGS stats players, who like myself, are only playing video slots, the number of player winning each month, not to mention these are generally the same players and a mix of new sign-ups too, I start to wonder how is this possible. When, I and other MGS players can literally lose month after month. It just doesn't add up!

    I'm starting to wonder if two sets of books (stats) are being tallied here. The cooked stats are presented to affiliates, while the real stat which are giving the real account of players deposits, wins etc etc are held by the affiliate program.

    One such MGS casino I've been promoting on numerous sites for over 4.5 years. These sites target Australian and New Zealand traffic only. Yet, with the 10's of 1000's of players who have signed up and deposited, and the 3 whales I have who are still playing, it defies fact that most months I've gone from commissions of $25K or more to, back to back months where I'm lucky if I make $3K.

    I have accounts where money, players and accounts are being locked at an all time high. When I question these issues and ask for factual information to back up these loses, I get ignored. I'm in business like everyone else, and part of my business, just like my bank sends me proof of transactions, I and other affiliates should also receive factual proof about these claimed loses. However it doesn't happen. Programs are simply not transparent as they would like us to think.

    It's a sad state of affairs and I think it's going to get a lot worse unless affiliates start demanding transparency and actual proof against these locked accounts, missing money,players and all the other little tricks these programs can do to effectivvely scam and theive from their affiliate partners.


    Cheers

    Hi grattag,

    Sorry to read your complaints about BrightShare.
    I've forwarded it to Saskie (saskiam@brightshare.com) - your affiliate account manager.

    She'll be getting back to you directly.

    AussieDave - thanks for your support for BrightShare in your post. If you're having MGS issues with other casinos, I suggest you contact them and demand details.

    Cassaon888 - as you know our conversion team is currently investigating your case.

    Thanks - Marcia

    PROBLEM RESOLVED

    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Hello, (traduct by Google)

    Well, I will inform you again of the arrangement with BrightShare. They called me again today to end the dispute.

    Excel file they sent me this morning is the statistics of another French affiliate. They are based on the average of its statistics to find the sum of the figures for 2010 lost my account.

    Finally, the 780 per month is ok for me. This is 780 x 8 months, a total of 6245. They could take 10 months because the statistics of March and April 2010 are really curious too, but I accept their proposal.

    I think my account statistics have been lost (or changed) when the French manager of Brightshare is gone the company. This happened to me also with ReferBack, the manager is gone and changed my accounts. So webmasters, managers pay attention to accounts, it is very important!

    I believe today that Brightshare has arranged for my complaint and I thank them.

    I expect payment by bank transfer. When I receive it, I ask, as promised, an invoice CasinoAffiliatePrograms to send them the sum of 10%. So I have to CasinoAffiliatePrograms the sum of $ 624. I keep my promises and this is normal. My email: pubsaweb_AT_ Hotmail.fr to send me the invoice. I will give you details of the invoice.

    When the payment arrives on my account, I'll post a message. For now, I am waiting for payment.

    Thank you Brightshare and CasinoAffiliatePrograms.

    You'll still hear from me, because I still have two other companies including Microgaming Stats are very weird. You know what these companies very soon.

    As a professional affiliation to the casinos, I recommend for the moment, only those companies and not more (attention to others, some are close to bankruptcy since the French market is closed at Microgaming casinos...)

    Casino Rewards - Referback - Brightshare - 32 Red - GoWild - Red Return - Star Partner
