Revenue Calculation Formula
Net Revenue = the sum of Revenues less Redeems generated on your Tracker(s) based solely on our log files. Deduction of Taxes in Regulated Markets where Vegas Folks brand operate with a local license will also apply as will licensing for Branded and Live Casino /Poker games.
CPA – Yes but not available to affiliates based in China or Belarus.
Negative Carry Over – No, see below:
“10.4 For all our Casino Brands we do not carry over negative balances. Furthermore, we separate our Brands for payment purposes, meaning negative results at one Brand won’t affect your positive results at the others (no bundling). With the following exception:
For the avoidance of doubt, if an affiliate/company has several accounts (anames) promoting one Brand a negative will affect all the accounts in the group on that brand.
However, no negative carryover still applies to that Account/Brand as a whole and per brand”

Sub Affiliate Commission – Yes, but not available if this is your only revenue stream.

Player Issues – Lucky Vegas is run by SkillOnNet software provider. In 2009-2011 multiple parties, including ThePOGG.com, found that the gamble feature being run on SkillOnNet Video Poker games was highly likely to be functioning in a non-random fashion.
When we approached the software provider about this issue, they asked for the weekend to confirm our conclusions. After the weekend they came back stating that their own testing had shown the feature to be functioning normally. When we retested the game it was indeed functioning normally.
This leaves us with a 1 in 2000000 chance that the result we received was generated by a fairly functioning game (1 in 50000000000 if the results of the other parties are included) and a 1999999 in 2000000 chance that the game was altered over the weekend.
The game was fixed and has been retested several times since to ensure it remains compliant with fair practice. However whether this was an intentional rig or an accident that was corrected, the highly likely dishonesty displayed in the management of this issue was entirely unacceptable.
Due to the above issue, SkillOnNet have decided that they will no longer cooperate with ThePOGG.com in the management of player complaints due to concerns about bias on our part. This decision came after several complaints against their operators had been managed and resolved positively for the operator and as such seems without bases to us.
We are also aware of an instance where a SkillOnNet operator disclosed a player’s personal information accidentally to a non-authorised party.
When doing the research for this article we discovered that the EuroKings Affiliates (the other major SkillOnNet casino group) contact email address was redirecting to firstname.lastname@example.org. Class1Affiliates was the affiliate program that previously represented Class1 Casino which was a rebranding of Maxima casino. Both these casinos developed a markedly negative reputation and ended up Rogued at CasinoMeister due to mistreatment of players. It seems highly likely given the above that EuroKings Affiliates is being run by the same group that originally ran Class1Affiliates/casino.
SkillOnNet properties have also been identified operating a self-exclusion system that channels all users to the weakest possible exclusion length and mis-leads users about the duration of their exclusion.

Affiliate Issues – We are not aware of any unresolved affiliate issues with Vegas Folks Affiliates.
The software issues SkillOnNet have been associated with have ensured that ThePOGG network will never work with a SkillOnNet operator. We have no confidence in the integrity of this operator.
Alongside the above, the lack of clear definition of the Revenue Ladder on offer is a concern for monitoring purposes and an aggressive term prohibiting affiliates from discussing what rate of revenue share they receive seems at the least excessive.
All in all we will not work with this group. We would strongly discourage other affiliates from considering this operator.
