Hello! Let me start off by saying I've been reading the posts on this forum and have learned a lot and it seems like a great community who look out for each other, so that pushed me into joining as a member. I have been an affiliate of various programs (mostly adult) for over 10 years, but the casino related programs are totally new to me, so I'm just learning about things like negative balances, country specific regulations, etc. I decided to try the sub niche of lottery because it seemed (to me at least) to be fairly easy to promote. I figured offline promotion would be best to bring in local players, as I have a lot of connections in the local community. I also figured it would be fun to promote the excitement of it all...winning a jackpot! Since I like building websites I started putting together a lotto site and had a blast doing it, but here's where I ran into problems. I started researching on the best lotto affiliate program to join and, after hours of reading, I determined that LottoElite and TheLotter seemed to be the best for me, so I emailed both with a few questions before going forward.....and then I waited....and waited. So, after several days I never received a reply from either one, which made me think I either seem too "green" for them, or they are having issues. Upon further research, it seems that LottoElite hasn't been paying some of their affiliates lately, so maybe they don't want anymore affiliates. My questions to the community here are: Is it normal for them to ignore potential affiliates? Which "good" lotto program accepts newbies? Any overall advice for how to best promote it? I'm looking forward to learning a lot here. Thanks!
