Who would have guessed that Casumo Casino has been removed from the accredited section on the well respected Casinomeister website?
So what is the reason for this decision by what is considered to be the go to website in terms of finding out at which casino to play?
The reason is simply because the way that Casumo deals with affiliates that use tactics that are rather dodgy when it comes to promoting the casino. Claims such as unrealistic or unachievable “jackpots” (I mean, a jackpot on Starburst – you have got to be joking!), claims that the casino is the fastest one available in terms of withdrawal speeds, not so clear sign up bonuses and affiliates that think sending spam emails is the way to get new sign ups.
So how does Casumo deal with these affiliates? It appears from a topic on Casinomeister that they don’t. They have not made commitments to deal with affiliates that are breaking the terms- and conditions of the affiliate contract. Unlike other casinos that have the balls to take a tough stand against such affiliates, Casumo has made no commitment to close their accounts, or penalise the affiliate by withholding their commission earned.
It was only when Bryan, the owner of Casinomeister, removed them from the accredited section that answers were forthcoming from the casino representative on the forum. They explained that internally they have taken action, but were not prepared to share this action with the forum audience. This didn’t, as you can image, go down too well.
So what does this mean for a player that deposits and plays at Casumo? There is nothing to worry about at all. Your money is safe, the games behave as they should and you will get paid promptly when you’re lucky enough to be in a position to make a withdrawal.
The removal of Casumo from the accredited section was expected after the complaints on the forum about the many spam emails dispatched by some of their affiliates, and I salute Bryan and the Casinomeister team for making this brave decision. Losing accreditation on one of the leading casino information websites must be a kick in the teeth for Casumo.
Here is hoping that Casumo has learned their lesson and starts action again rogue affiliates by closing their accounts or penalising them via alternative means. Actions speak louder than words, so we will have to wait with baited breath how this all develops.
