Deckmedia, SlotoCash Online Casino

Deckmedia and its online casino brand, SlotoCash, has decided it can no longer pay out its affiliate partners. 

Gambling911.com Special Contributor and proprietor of the Media Man International website, Greg Tingle, received the following notice in his email box:

Dear Affiliates,

I am writing to inform you that unfortunately we have lost GATM eCheck processor. This was a major processor for Deckmedia and a lot of money is owed to us by Echeck which appears to be lost at this stage.

Echeck was having issues with its confidential name 'GATM'. This term (GATM) leaked out across the internet and they contacted us on several occasions requesting that we ask affiliates to remove all references of 'GATM' from those gambling related sites listing it. Lots of affiliates assisted with this which was greatly appreciated. However many affiliates refused and the term 'GATM' remains on many sites and now the company has gone offline and is not responding.

In the past Deckmedia have taken huge loses upon us to ensure that affiliates have not lost out in such circumstances. For example, when Deckmedia lost Ewalletxpress and Mastercard, Deckmedia took the FULL hit ensuring all affiliates were paid the full amount for those months.

I regret to inform you that this time round Deckmedia will not be able to take these loses from Echeck and those affiliates who have earnings from Echeck deposits will have those earnings deducted. This will take place on the 31st March.

This is not a decision, which was made easily and I apologise to all of those who will be affected by it.

Please try to understand the circumstances. This is a loss for everybody and unfortunately was out of our control.

Kind Regards,
 

Paul

Marketing Director

“We first became aware of SlotCash about 12 months ago,” Tingle conveyed to us.   “But we decided to join their affiliate programs about 6 months ago, since they advised us that they accepted United States customers, and we liked that fact, since things are on the go in the U.S and we also own and operate website portals American Casino News and American Gaming News.

“We gave the SlotCash brands good coverage, however unfortuately we never earned 1 cent from them, despite getting good income from a number  of other affiliate programs in the same sector, with roughly the same coverage, promotion and the like. For over 3 months we have not contacted SlotoCash. We decided to cut our (time - thus money) losses, and focus on areas of our business and other brands that are profitable, and not a waste of time.”

Deck Media is the parent company of SlotCash.
