GENEVA, Switzerland — Affiliate programs and performance marketing are playing an increasingly important role in the online strategies for casino and sportsbook operators. Professional affiliates around the globe are driving traffic to online gambling sites on a pay-for-performance basis. The rewards are high for both operators and casino affiliates who operate independently.
Due to the rampant success of the revenue share business model, the industry is being tarnished by unscrupulous operators and rogue affiliates. Urgent action is needed to establish a code of conduct and industry best practices.
The leading casino affiliate networks: Fortune Affiliates, Casino Paycheck, Club Dice Casinos, Golden Star Network, House Winnings and ReferBack are proud to announce their charter membership of the Internet Casino Affiliate Marketing Association, a not-for-profit organization dedicated to Keeping it Fair in Casino Revshare.
On December 5-7, 2002, the charter members are staging the first Internet CASINO Affiliate Marketing Summit at the Atlantis Resort & Casino on Paradise Island in the Bahamas.
CasinoAffiliateFORCE.com (http://CasinoAffiliateFORCE.com) is positioning itself to become the casino affiliate networking event of the year and all industry professionals are invited to attend. The emphasis is on education, quality networking and business development.
Casino AffiliateFORCE/2002 will be an industry milestone where the ethics & standards will be determined by those who pledge to Keep it Fair in Casino Revshare.
“The casino affiliate marketing industry is blossoming and promises to become a multi-billion dollar revenue stream for online casinos and sportsbooks. We must take action now to nurture and protect this business model, before unscrupulous operators muddy the waters for the rest of us. The iCAfma.org Charter Members are taking the lead to establish the best practices. Others must follow or be excluded and shunned by affiliates.” said Herby Olschewski, Chairman & CEO of iCAfma.org
iGambling Tip: DOUBLE Your Bonuses
Competition among Internet casinos is fierce and nearly all casinos offer special bonuses to get you to play. Here’s a tip on how you can DOUBLE the already-generous bonuses some casinos offer, without violating any of the bonus terms or conditions.
While most casinos offer one-time “welcome” bonuses to IDN Slot players, some casinos offer MONTHLY bonuses to all players, new and old, every month. You can quickly double these bonuses by making your first deposit near the end of the month.
Let me explain. Let’s say Casino ABC offers a monthly bonus of $75 when you make a $75 deposit. You open an account on October 31st, make your deposit and collect your bonus. Then you play your favorite games. Maybe you win, maybe you lose. That’s gambling. Regardless, the next day, on the first of the month, you qualify for another $75 bonus! You have doubled the amount of bonus chips you received in just 24 hours.
One casino that offers monthly bonuses is Sands of the Caribbean. They will give you a $100 bonus on a deposit of $150 or more each month.
InterCasino also regularly offers monthly bonuses. You can find more offers in our bonus directory.
One final note about bonuses: Always read the casino’s terms and conditions before depositing funds. Most casinos require you to wager certain amounts before the bonus money can be withdrawn. This is fair and reasonable. The restrictions are in place to prevent dishonest players from making a deposit and taking the bonus money without playing the games.
