Don't worry, I'm not about to start promoting Bet Butler.
Bet Butler are well and truely dead in the water, anyone who had money in there when they folded will be lucky to see anything (even pennies) back again.
"Bet Butler Free Bet" actually refers to a couple of search terms that have lead people to the matchedbettingblog.net.
But why would anyone search for that?!
Surely everyone knows they're gone by now?....don't they?
Previously I'd been amazed by someone searching for (and landing here) with the term "Erotic Bookmaker", a term that conjures up the idea of wagering on who will come first. But I think "Bet Butler Free Bet", when searched for in December 2014, is even stranger.
Putting the term back in google to compare the results yielded something I wasn't expecting though.......there still are lots of pages still referring to getting a £25 risk free bet from BetButler.
These aren't cached legacy pages from years ago, there were actually fresh reviews and posts supporting BetButler being put up whilst huundreds of customers complained about not receiving withdrawals.
As an affiliate you either have to be blind to the industry you're working in or in the pay of BetButler to still be posting some of the articles I've read this week.
By far my favourite of the sites that haven't changed their reviews in respect of BetButler going bust was a glowing report from Bet72.com which I've given a snippet of below.
Bet72 are delighted to announce that we have got together with brokerage firm Bet Butler to give everyone a fantastic free £25 bet
So you could see this as a totally risk free punt on something you fancy or of course you can lock in some guaranteed profit whatever the outcome.
Bet72 should be pretty ashamed, anyone that followed that article and link would almost certainly have lost their money when BetButler went under. The writing was on the wall long before they got together with BetButler, and they would've known that. Places like The Gambling Times who actively tried to help customers, inform them and help them get their money out had their affiliate accounts closed.
Being a betting and casino affiliate comes with a certain amount of responsibility. I don't push brands I'm not familiar with just because there's a juicy CPA if I get some mugs to sign up. In fact it's the responsibility part that leads me to name check The Gambling Times so often. I don't have the time to devote to reviews, information and offers that they do, and that's why I send people there. I know they'll be looked after and if the worst happens with a bookmaker they'll be there to try and sort it out; as they did with Canbet, Bodugi and BetButler.
