CWinz Scams Affiliate Partners

In the online igaming industry, there’s a golden rule. Most affiliate programs adhere to this rule. However, some don’t. Those clip-joints who don’t, It’s nothing short of theft. The honest rule is, when an affiliate refers a NDP (new depositing player), and the casino or sportsbook makes positive NGR (net gaming revenue) at end of month, the igaming affiliate receives commission for that referred player.

Fact, the igaming operator would not have the player’s deposit(s), without the affiliate referring the player in the first place. Hence, pay the affiliate.

12 or so years ago now, some affiliate programs began introducing NDP referring quotas.  Meaning, until an affiliate had referred a certain number of NDP’s, the program would not pay the affiliate commission. Payment would only be made after the player-quota was filled.

Spin it however you like but this practice is unethical, and scam-like. Reiterating, the igaming operator would not have any depositing players without the affiliate partner.

These player quotas are bad-news. They’re a scam. Could things get worse? Yes.

The Cwinz.com affiliate program, goes one further, and is operating on two (2) sets of affiliate program T&C’s. Both contain different player-quota terms and clauses. How does this scam work?

Well, as you can see from the screen capture image, the Affiliate Program Link, on Cwinz.com, points to partners.cwinz.com. The Cwinz spokesperson came to AGD, and tried to turn their scam, into a legitimate agreement. This person stated lies and fictional BS. The link  to the AGD forum post about the Cwinz.com scam, is at the end of this blog.

FYI… any affiliate signing up to the Cwinz partner program, is redirected to: partners.cwinz.com. The points below explain the hoodwink; scam and lies!

cwinz.com, Affiliate Partner Link: partners.cwinz.com

  • partners.cwinz.com – Terms and Conditions: clausej) Applicants must provide at least 5 active players to become a qualified affiliate and to have the right to request a withdrawal. Any earnings accrued during this time will remain in the affiliate’s account until this rule has been met.
  • affiliates.cwinz.com – Terms and Conditions: clausej) Applicants must provide at least 20 active players to become a qualified affiliate and to have the right to request a withdrawal. Any earnings accrued during this time will remain in the affiliate’s account until this rule has been met.

NB – The Affiliate Program Link on Cwinz.com, links to Partners.Cwinz.com (there is no redirect to affiliates.cwinz.com). Therefore the only valid/legit T&C’s, are at Partners.cwinz.com.

Partners.cwinz.com T&C’s: min 5 NDP quota (click thumbnail to view full size proof)
partners.cwinz.com terms and conditions - affiliate must send a minimum of 5 NDP's, before commission is paid.
Affiliates.cwinz.com T&C’s: min 20 NDP quota (click thumbnail to view full size proof)
affiliates.cwinz.com terms and conditions - affiliate must send a minimum of 20 NDP's, before commission is paid.

This story broke over at Affiliate Guard Dog (AGD), when an affiliate partner of Cwinz.com, requested a commission payment of €3,500. This affiliate was told, commission was not due, because the minimum 20 NDP’s had not been sent, yet. Worse, the affiliate program does NOT display how many NDP’s an affiliate refers, hence, the program can make up any number. Didn’t take long to realise, that Cwinz.com and their Affiliate Program, had no respect for the truth, honestly or worse, decent ethics.

Maybe there’s some honest igaming operators in India BUT most seem like scammers. Not unlike the internet scammers which India is well known for. There are a number of countries I wouldn’t touch with a barge pole, when it comes to partnering with an igaming program in these countries. India is on that ban-list. I would strongly suggest, that no affiliate partner with Cwinz.com or any casino/sportsbook India affiliate program, because you’ll likely be scammed by an unscrupulous igaming program.
