    Focus on Retention and Player Values
    Their Marketing Manager explained to me they have a proprietary bonus scheme that incentivizes play between devices, which is working great to maximize player values. Additionally, SlotJoint is independently owned vs. being white-label and reinvests its more efficient operating margin into their player retention system.

    Transparency
    It is worth noting that WagerJoint has 7 revenue share calculation examples in Appendix A of their Terms and Conditions. Additionally, they pay out of Gross Gaming Revenue instead of Net Gaming Revenues. So they come across as very honest and transparent.

    AGD EXCLUSIVE PROMOTION
    WagerJoint has an exclusive deal for AGD members of 25% of gross gaming revenue. When you take into account that they are not taking any deductions, this is around 40% of Net Revenue for life. This is a great deal exclusive to AGD members. Just click here to get started.

    WagerJoint’s Affiliate Manager is Kristine Nibungco. You can reach her and the rest of the team at Partners@wagerjoint.com or alternatively Skype: Wagerjoint.com and here: Start a Conversation with Kristine

    The following SLOTS only count 60% towards wagering...

    Blood Suckers, Dead or Alive, Kings of Chicago, Devil's Delight™, Scrooge and Jackpot 6000, all Scratch Cards, all versions of keno (except listed below), Who Spun It?, DownTown, SugarPop, Suchi Bar, Hidden Loot, Back in Time, The Bees, Reel Outlaws, Lucky 7, Triple Crown, Safari Sam, Captain Cash, Diamond Dreams, After Night Falls, Greedy Goblins, The True Sheriff, Puppy Love & Puppy Love Plus, Good Girl Bad Girl, Gypsy Rose, Fruit Zen, Mermaid’s Pearl, Monkey Money, Out Of This World, Mamma Mia, Classic Fruit, Kitty Cash, Blood Bank, Puppy Payday, Joker Jester, Lucky Numbers, Treasure Island, Kick Ass, A Night in Paris, Virtual Racebook, Cartoon Capers, True Illusions, Pinocchio, At the Copa, Jack Hammer, Jack Hammer 2, Steam Tower, Muse.

    From a player point of view, I hate it when casinos have such huge lists of reduced % slots - I just can't understand why they do this. :confused:

    They may well have OK terms for affiliates - but terms like this could put players off IMPO.

    I understand the bonus sucks (from your perspective) ... but the program does not. All players do not take bonuses. I absolutely refused bonuses (always). I just wanted to say that because your comment makes it kinda seem like this is a bad program - when it isn't. Even with your comment at the bottom.

    Bonuses at SlotJoint Casino are optimally set to maximize conversions, player satisfaction and return on marketing spend. At one time we even had three 200% match bonuses, with WR set at bonus x 30, as a welcome package with one bonus for each device: desktop, mobile and tablet. It converted great and had a great ROI, but we were forced to change it and the contribution rates due to high player fraud.

    Consider this: when we changed our standard wagering requirement from bonus x 30 to bonus x 40 it had zero impact on conversion rates. But it served to deter syndicate gamblers and bonus hunters.We optimize our bonuses to maximize ROI and player satisfaction. We take our bonuses very seriously and set them accordingly.

    Consider this: we had over 5,000 new players since October 2015 and not a single complaint regarding the wagering requirements on our welcome bonus. Had the 60% contribution rate hurt our brand image or marketing effort we would have adjusted it instantly.

    Consider this: many of these higher WR games have a very high RTP e.g. Kitty Ca$h has a manufacturers RTP of 97.86%. There are many roulette variations with a RTP around this level and nobody complains that they contribute only 10% to bonuses (sometimes less). In fact, the majority of the 60% contribution class have RTP > 97%. So, certain slots need to have a higher wagering requirement the same way table games do, otherwise our casino and our affiliate partners would be out of pocket on the bonus hunters and syndicate gamblers.

    Furthermore, it is standard practice and not strange to place the higher RTP and / or more volatile games in a different contribution class. Are there any multi-vender casinos that do not do this? For example, LeoVegas has a 70% class, Guts 75%, Betat 50%. Don’t you think you should set your bonus terms to be profitable and respectful at the same time? This is what SlotJoint Casino has done.

    We always ask our players for feedback and have not had a single complaint regarding our bonus wagering requirements. The only feedback that we have had regarding our bonus is that they love the 200% match bonus with bonus x 40 WR and love the fact they can withdraw their cash funds at any time. For the record, Scrooge is the only MG slot in the 60% contribution class.

    As mentioned before, we are constantly engaging our players for feedback and delivering an excellent player experience. For example, in Canada we are one of the few brands that will payout to Ecopayz within 60 minutes. Actually, our last Ecopayz payout and verification today was done within 20 minutes to a player who had nothing but good things to say. These are her exact words from chat: “okay thank you and I will totally recommend you to everybody this is actually fun been on a few sites where they rip me off”.

    Another example, a high roller from Australia (hates bonuses) but loves $100 free chips with no terms, loves free spins with no wagering requirements, loves our staff and loves the personable experience we give him. After dropping $12k and then requesting a wire payout for $2k he wrote, word for word: "Glass is always half full champion. Thanks for your great service. The company can be very thankful that you are running their operations as I am extremely happy and wouldn't bet anywhere else".

    How about this example: a single mother from Australia playing the new James Dean Slot had a x 2000 hit, but accidentally went over the max bet rule several times. As a responsible operator, SlotJoint overlooked this in the name of player fairness and got this unedited response “David i can not tell you what your last email you sent me.I must seem so excited to you. But honestly david i was the happiest lady alive when i won
    that yesterday.Then when you told me the bonus rules,I thought i knew it could not happen to me.But you have made my-self and my sons christmas a Fantastic one.Much appreciated,That was so fair of you .I wish you and yourfamily a lovely happy and safe christmas and New year. Yours sincerely”.

    Even at 97.86% RTP, with WR of Bx40 the expected loss is 85% of the bonus funds = a tiny profit for any "bonus abusers".
    With your lower than average max bet of $4 there is no way anyone could systematically "abuse" anything!

    Even with single zero roulette (a HA of 2.70%) - the expected loss is 108% of the bonus funds.
    Again, with a max bet of $4, I would LOVE to hear how people can abuse that!
    If it were me I would allow Roulette at 50% or more in WR.

    Anyway, you can do what you want - I'm just giving you my feedback from a PLAYER perspective.
    As a player, I think your rules are unnecessarily complicated and a bit silly.
    Sorry, I was a bit harsh last night! (Too much wine made me whine! :oops:)

    Apart from that, your Welcome bonus is competitive and it probably would produce good conversions on my websites.
    One question though - you don't appear to be UK licensed - so you don't accept UK players?

    Thank you for your question:)

    We do not have a UK Gambling License and are not promoting SlotJoint Casino to UK players. Furthermore, we are not encouraging any affiliates to promote SlotJoint Casino to the UK market. It is an interesting situation with the 15% POC tax and we are waiting to see how things transpire.

    If you have mediums which face markets other than the UK such as Canada or Australia then we should give it a whirl. We have a great a sales funnel and so far have had phenomenal player values. You should review SlotJoint's mobile web app on a tablet, the conversion rates are exceptional :)

    I just snipped a quick screenshot of the first 10 players from the dashboard. Go ahead and take a peek, keep in mind that we just started our advertising drive in October so these are fresh players.

    Not bad right? The 200% match bonus is great for conversions. The second step is our CRM algorithm that brings players back with x1 WR free spins and most importantly drives players between devices. Incentivizing play between devices is the trick to increasing player value, perhaps as high as x5.

    Our door is always open. Give us a try and we will not let you down:)

    It would be interesting to know the ratio of players who do accept bonuses and those who don't.

    Here are the two most recent polls at Casinomeister on this subject:

    As you can see, the vast majority DO take them, which is one of the reasons I feel they are critical for conversions and why I focus on welcome bonuses so much.

    Why would any business want to alienate a portion of their customer base?

    Many thanks for this information 'KK'.

    I fully understand now why the bonus terms have become more 'malicious' over the years. Despite the fact that you have a bunch of bonus hunters trying to exploit it, it's one area where an operator can 'get one over' novice players.

    One question out the way. Now my next question. On average, what's the percentage in ratio affiliates send players to a casino as opposed to direct sign ups? I know this differs from jurisdiction to jurisdiction. I've heard that 70% of some operators' players base are referred by affiliates.
