    Hi,

    I have been curious in regards to online casino affiliates and would like to possibly get involved with them.

    I have been involved in corporate bookies in Australia and have had affiliates with them.

    I was just wondering what the best advice anyone has for online casino affiliates!
    - What’s the best affiliate program to be involved in?
    - Do I need a website or is it recommended to have one?
    -What are the dangers of getting an online casino affiliate?

    I understand people probably post this every day but if anyone has any advice or info that would be handy to me, it would be much appreciated.

    Thanks

    IMO ... if you need to ask such questions you are far away from the right path. If you need to know, need a website or not?! No, you don´t need a domain, but then you need a massive budget and knowledge in Media Buy. The best affiliate program depends on your market and/or your verticals. The biggest danger is wasting of time and money.

    Thanks for taking the time to reply to my inquiry. Not sure about you, but I’ve always been told If you don’t know something to ask no matter how stupid or simple the question is! As I said I’m just getting a gauge for all of this as I’ve never done casino affiliates but by the sound of it it’s pretty similar to corporate bookmaking affiliates. Thanks again

    It is exactly the same. Affiliate marketing is affiliate marketing, if you sell books, casino depositer or meat. You get a commission for referred business. It defines only the relation between the product owner and you. The differences are in the way how you promote the offers.

    I get where eenzoo was coming from: Reading your posts I'm not 100% sure if you want to advertise casinos, or simply work as an affiliate manager for one!

    If you want to advertise, a website is a must IMO. Other methods (spamming e-mails or SMS) are immoral and not allowed by any reputable companies. I can't think of any other ways (though it is early in the morning!).

    I do in fact run a tipping website based around horse racing so I am aware of how that works. I simply was asking if you need to have a website for casino affiliates because you certainly don’t in corporate book making. Thajks

    That makes no sense at all!
    If your running a tipping site, then it should be pretty logical that you'd need a portal (website) to promote casinos.

    As far as AU licensed Corp., Bookies, AFAIK all of them have a website. Even the BIG honchos of the AU land based gambling scene such as Tabcorp Holdings and UBet Enterprises have punter focused sites. o_O

    Edit:
    In 2016 the AU IGA (interactive gambling act) was revised from the previous dormant bill from 2001. In August of 2017, that Bill was made Federal Law. In a nut shell it bans all online gambling which is not AU Licensed. Furthermore, there is also an affiliate/marketing clause.

    So unless you like the Feds knocking on your door at 7am (with handcuffs), then promoting online casinos to Aussie is a no go for you, and anyone else (including me) who lives in AU.

    Besides all that, the online gaming industry is become harder and harder. Even seasoned affiliates like myself, are not getting the signup numbers we once use to. The industry was left alone for a long time, but Governments have realised they are losing money allowing this activity to go unmonitored. Hence, they now want their tax dollars.

    As such, a lot, and I mean a lot of counties have banned online gaming. The market which was once open territory, is now a fraction of that, and it keeps shrinking.

    My advice, find yourself another vertical, get in on the ground-floor.

    However, starting out as a casino affiliate these days, is, IMHO, a waste of time and money. An investment which could, and should be better spent in something else. EG - Something like Crypto Currency!
