is the betcoin.ag / betcoinpoker.ag affiliate program a scam?

    i operate an online poker site that has a bitcoin poker section that receives a lot of traffic so i decided to try and promote the betcoin poker room in that part of my site. i was pleasantly surprised by the conversion rate of the betcoin affiliate program and over the course of 2017 i managed to sign-up over 200 active players that were making me a few hundred dollars a month. problems started in december 2017 when betcoin.ag abruptly shut-down their online poker room and then reopened it as betcoinpoker.ag a few weeks ago. the problem is that i am not receiving any commission from the new site betcoinpoker.ag even though that's where all my players are now.

    when i contacted the betcoin.ag affiliate program to complain, they told me that i would still receive commission on casino and sports betting at their site but that since betcoinpoker.ag is a different company, i would have to email them about my poker commission.

    since the traffic i sent to them was from a poker-only site, my players were engaged in online poker and not sports betting and casino gaming so i have stopped making any money now that they've moved poker to a new site. saying that it is a completely different company is also stupid since they share the "betcoin" name, site design and betcoin.ag links to betcoinpoker.ag.

    this feels like a scam and i would recommend affiliates avoid both the betcoin.ag and betcoinpoker.ag affiliate programs until this issue is resolved.

    We have worked with the BetCoin.ag affiliate program in the past and we can report that they have always acted in an honest way with us. However, I do agree that they need to start paying affiliates for BetCoin Poker players that they have referred.
