Terms and Conditions
Minimum Activity Quota – Yes, see below:
“*** Minimum Activity Qualification. Your Revenue Commission will decrease to a rate of 12.5% following 3 months of Affiliate Inactivity. Please note that in the event that you will not direct any Qualifying Users to any Site for the period of 3 months and be considered as an inactive Affiliate, this definition will apply to you from that moment on (even if you direct new Qualifying Users to any Site) and therefore the Revenue Commission described in the table above will not apply to you.
12.5% is below the minimum cutoff value of 15% where we consider reduced commission equivalent to a Minimum Activity clause. Also:
“*** In the event that you: (i) do not show the most updated links provided by us, on all of your websites’ pages according to the shape and location as agreed by the parties to this Agreement; or (ii) change the type, location, or suggestion on links without prior notice and our written approval; or (iii) reduced your efforts to recruit new Users; it will be considered as non-compliance with the terms of this Agreement and We reserve the right to modify the Revenue Commission rates immediately and without any prior notice.”

Player Issues – The NetHive group of operators have been sporadic in their response to player complaints.
The casinos associated with this group have more instances of requests for Notarized ID than the standard operators groups. These may be a legitimate anti-fraud measure, but this is an invasive and costly process and should only be used on larger balances and as a last resort. The reports we’ve seen don’t suggest that these requests are being limited to these situations.
A complaint submitted to us against Winner casino appears to have shown the operator making up the rules as they went along to punish a player they were unhappy with.
The NetHive Affiliates group enforce withdrawal restrictions on Progressive Jackpot winnings. As Progressive Jackpots are paid out by the software provider jackpot pool, there’s no justification for enforcing this type of restriction other than to try and frustrate the winning player into losing back part of the win.
Winner casino have ties to NeoPlay casino via historic ownership information and website designs (NeoPlay was for a significant period a clone of the Winner site). NeoPlay share a gambling license with a number of casino properties working with Welcome Partners. Several of the casinos run by this group have been confirmed (via our conversations with Net Entertainment) to be running fake Net Entertainment games.

Affiliate Issues – In late 2014 an affiliate was found to be engaged in large scale hacking of WordPress sites. They were using security loopholes to access the sites then uploading a page of casino reviews. All affiliate programs have clear terms and conditions prohibiting this type of marketing. While some affiliate programs managed to shut this affiliate down quickly and stopped appearing on the hacked sites quickly, other programs either failed to stop the affiliate from opening new accounts or simply didn’t shut down the original accounts.
Some of the brands being operated by the extended Winner group continued to appear on these sites for many months after they were made aware of this issue.
For references see – http://thepogg.com/casino-review/casino-reviews-appendix/#Winner_Group.
Affiliates should be aware of the following term:
“We do not support nor give hand to any kind of content stealing or copying (site scraping), and We reserve the right to close your account with us if you will be proven to use such methods, and/or to transfer the amounts payable to you to the original content creator.”
From a player perspective, the extended Winner group won’t discuss complaints with 3rd party dispute resolution services, are more likely to ask players to comply with costly and invasive security measures and appear to have made rules up as they went when a situation didn’t suit them. That’s an impressive list of good reasons for players not to engage with this operator.
From an affiliate perspective NetHive Affiliates has a list of pretty negative terms which we summarise below:
• Negative Carryover policies – if your players have a win large enough to create a significant negative balance for you, this creates a situation where you no longer have any incentive to carry on marketing the program’s brands. This leads to a short-term mind set to working relationship between the affiliate and the program.
• Right to reduce your commission levels to 12.5% or an undefined level based on vague criteria. We consider this to be a minimum activity quota as we feel that level of revenue share is unsustainable on a business level.
What is also of a concern is that properties within the extended Winner group have been ineffective in preventing their brands appearing on hacked affiliate sites when other reputable operators have coped. This suggests that this group have either chosen to work with groups engaged in illegal activity or have ineffective preventative security procedures. This has angered many in the affiliate community and as such all Winner related programs hold Not Recommended status.
