Whenever I click the deals on here for GAME, it never gets me to the website and the links are usually something like this

I was wondering if it was some kind of virus from a dodgy re-directing site or does it do this for everyone ?

Thanks in advance.

I have a similar problem when using my Three Mobile broadband dongle, Three block allot of third party referral links which is a pain in the ass when browsing HUKD. My home broadband is fine tho. Is this a new problem or have you faced it for a while?

Not sure, but happens on my PC and laptop. One is Firefox and the other is Chrome. Only happens when I click the HUKD links from GAME.

Is this because I use the Ad Blocker ? Just a bit odd that links to other sites via HUKD are fine.

Most likely this is just the HUKD click-through tracking that you're seeing (part of how the site makes its money), given that it's not just you.
