Affeurope says all tracking links will be closed on December 31.
Online casino affiliate management firm Affeurop is ending 2014 on a low note for both itself and its affiliate marketers, advised them that it plans to shut down all affiliate links with effect from December 31 2014.
In an email notification signed anonymously by "Affeurop Team" the company advised Tuesday:
"It’s with great sorrow that we have to announce the closure of Affeurope.
"At the end of this month December 31st we will close down all tracking links and no more new players will be accepted at the promoted brands (City Club Casino, Crown Europe casino and City Tower casino).
"Of course all payments due at the end of December and previous months (if you have not withdrawn them) will be paid out in full.
"After that there will not be any future payments to affiliates as we are closing down.
"If you have issues logging in to your account or have any other inquiries please feel free to mail us at"
The company gave no reasons for its unilateral and rather sudden decision.
The consensus among industry observers is that the three Playtech-powered online casinos mentioned in the Affeurop advisory will continue to operate, presumably with a new affiliate program.
