Hello AGD community,

Today we present to you the new real revenue share audit report for Tau Affiliates.
One of their brands is KaiserSlots.

Affiliate Reporting Platform: Income Access

We deposited $10 via Skrill and took a welcome offer of 100% up to 10.

Our funds with deposit were $20 and we started playing some slots:

Slot 3 End.jpg


Eventually, we lost all the funds and checked the earnings report:

For the deposit of $10/€8.44 via Skrill the Net Gaming Revenue was €3.55

To summarize, the Effective Net Gaming Revenue (the amount of money deposited and lost) is 3.55/8.44= 42%.
Finally, multiply the advertised revenue share rate with the Effective NGR to see your real revenue share rate, e.g:
  • 25% = 10.50 %
  • 30% = 12.60 %
  • 35% = 14.70 %
  • 40% = 16.80 %
  • 45% = 18.90 %

Thank you so much for doing this investigation.

As expected really, anyone adverting 60-70% these days is way way below that.

Pure scam. Besides this admin fee scam it's a program to avoid anyway. Non-communicative, account closed without any notification, poor conversion, poor retention and with this kind of admin fees hard to make a buck.

If I'm right Tau are affiliates and their casinos are just a vehicle to pump traffic to. Hence, poor products.

Didn't know that. Are you sure? I mean the affiliates part.

Ok I got curious so did a quick dig around companies house...
  1. Tau Affiliates is run by Tau Marketing Services Limited
  2. Tau Marketing Services is owned by Quantum International Holdings Limited
  3. Quantum International Holdings Limited also owns Digital Adventures Limited
  4. Digital Adventures Limited claim to operate affiliate sites (see: qihmarketing . com/TMS/our-brands/ - under the digital adventures tab)
So on the face of it they do seem to be affiliates. However... if you actually look at those sites half of them don't resolve to a working site (some go to wix or just a generic domain holding page) or have expired ssl or other warnings and if you run the ones that are live through ahrefs they don't really seem to be ranking for much or show up in any PPC reports.

Maybe they have other more active sites they're not listing though? Their website talks about paid search so could be that's their focus.

besides that the quality of their loclaised brands - espcially Germany - is terrible.
