    Hey,

    My Fortune Affiliate stats look quite strange.
    Casino Revenue is more than 1,4k but I earn only $24.19.

    Can anybody explain it to me?

    After the progressive contributions and bonuses given to your players are deducted, the casino is left with net revenue of $96.74. Your commissions are based on the net revenue -- 25% of $96.74 is $24.19.

    Progressive contributions are a bitch for sure -- I'm always amazed at how my earnings are affected by progressive contributions. Each time a wager is made on a progressive game, a portion goes into the pot, and a portion goes to Microgaming. Apparently your player enjoys progressive games. ;D

    The other thing here is the bonus that was given to your player. In time, once the player wagers the full amount of the bonus, your earnings will go up. But while the bonus is still sitting in his account not completely wagered, your earnings will be affected because you are essentially paying for 25% of the bonus given to the player.

    Example:

    Player deposits $1,000 and and receives a $1,000 bonus. At this point (before the player wagers anything), your stats will show -$250 in earnings because of the bonus. You have to pay for 25% of it.

    With the bonus, the player now has $2,000 to play with. He wagers $1,000 (half of what he has). At this point, your -$250 is erased and you will see $0 in earnings.

    Player wagers the remaining $1,000. Now you will see $250 in earnings. (Assuming no progressive games were played.)

    I hope that makes sense...

    Thank you, Engineer.
    I took "casino revenue" for "net revenue", that was my problem. Most of my other affiliate programs "hide" fees, bonuses etc., all I can see is net revenue (commissionable revenue).
    So, basically (according to the stats) a player made a deposit, received a bonus and played progressive slots?
    Progressive contributions are really a bitch!

    Hi, I'm new on this forum and I'm an affiliate since the end of 2012...
    so I can define a newbie: so this is my first comment/question:

    I have seen your screenshot and, considering that I'm a Fortune Affiliate's affiliate too, I want to ask how many clicks or downloads to have 5 new real accounts and 1 active account. My question derives from the fact that at moment (for this month) I have 1875 impressions, with 150 unique visits and 71 downloads. Am I in line with the conversion rate or is there anything of strange? [ I'm italian so my english could be "strange" for all of you :p ]

    Thank you for your answer.

    V.
