A loyal casino affiliate who has promoted the Fortune Affiliates (FA) Casino brands for over 10 years, is still owed commissions since May 2014. This person has made numerous contacts with his affiliate manager and has been promised payment. Yet each time Fortune Affiliates has broken their promise and not paid this money owing. It should also be stated, this affiliate partner of Fortune Affiliates was hit with a mysterous $20,000 chargeback recently. No details or chargeback proof was given to the casino affiliate.
This story has emerged on the back of Fortune Affiliates changing their program software, which, turned out to be a nightmare for their affiliate partners. Tagged players from their casino brands such as Platinum Play, Royal Vegas et al went MIA and affiliate stats were a complete mess also. In every instance I’ve seen, these stats display nothing, not a single entry, even with historical stats.
In addition, the truth has recently surfaced regarding four (4) Microgaming casino groups, who, from day one claimed to be owned by seperate owners. However now the truth is out and clearly they’re all owned by the same entity. You can read about that fiasco here, Digimedia Ltd blog. This ruse also invloves Fortune Lounge, Fortune Affiliates and their subsidiary company Osiris Trading. All of whom are located in the same office space in Johannesburg, South Africa.
Physical Address for Fortune Affiliates, Fortune Lounge and Osiris Trading
While the gaming servers for Digimedia Ltd are located in Malta, this Johannesburg address is the physical location for the player support call centre, payment processing, player security department etc…etc…
