Affiliate cancels rakerace after I signed! Is this common practise?
at the moment I am a little frustrated, but I donīt want to name the affiliateīs name here. I think itīs one of the bigger affiliates out there. I signed a nice deal there 4 weeks ago with one of the major poker sites, which included a rake race that added about 30% rakeback effectively. Now after 4 weeks I just got an email by my affiliate, basicly saying, that the pokersite I signed with will no longer take part of this race from june.
As they donīt give me a concrete reason for this, I assume, that they just decided to skip the race in order to rise profit and that this has nothing to do with an intervention of the poker site involved. The race will keep going, but my poker site wonīt be included anymore.
So now my question?
Are they allowed to do this? I mean, of course they are, but is this ok? It looked like they were running this race on a regular basis, so when I signed my deal there, I seriously assumed that this race was a major part of the deal. Actually without the race I end up getting about 18% and I rake about 2,5K per month on average. So the race was 60% of the deal.
So the race was basicly the reason, that made me sign there.
Now the problem is: I really would like to play there on a regular basis, but unfortunately I am stuck with my affiliate that offers me absolutely no value.
Are there any suggestions what I can do? Is there any possibility that I step back from that contract? Whatīs your opinions about this?
