    It's taken us about 7 months in the making and we're finally ready to release our Wordpress plugin made specifically for Casino Affiliates.

    What's it about?

    So last year my partner and I tried to add a bunch of games to our site, it took forever! Sourcing the images, adding the links, iframes and then creating a working lobby took about a week. Then, we found some of the games stopped working, turns out casino operators discontinue games, links need to be changed blah blah blah..

    So what we did (initially to make our lives easier) is create a central database of games with iframe sources, decent images and titles. This whole thing has been packaged into a plugin.

    How it works

    The games are imported as a custom post types by clicking 'import', it fetches the games and imports them automatically. In the Wordpress admin you will see a post type called "Vegas Games", the custom post type is called 'games', we've created a lobby page template that pulls these games in and formats it into a responsive grid.

    The lobby:

    The game page:
    [​IMG]

    The import area:

    The plan

    As games are added, discontinued and new operators are introduced we make sure:

    1. They all work 100%
    2. Are always updated

    We manually test all the games every month, all 1000+ of them to make sure they work.

    We add the latest games to the database and then notify you to hit "Update", this will add the new games instantly.

    How this can benefit your site

    If you have a site that is need of games and you want to scale quickly, or you simply want to take the management out of the whole process, or both, then this is the plugin for you.

    The future and your protection

    Above anything else, we want to make sure that your site is maximised, the future of affiliate businesses is that you have to grow. Your competition is only going to get better and it will always be a challenge to compete in the same space, we know this because we are in exactly the same space.

    It works with almost any theme, if it doesn't, we will help you get it looking great.

    We will never:

    1. Do any type of black hat, hack or back door activity
    2. Effect your site in a negative way

    We have made sure that you can install and uninstall without issues.

    Launch date and cost:

    So we've set tomorrow as the launch date, the cost of the plugin and service is $199 a year.

    Included in that cost:

    - Access to our CDN, this is for all your images. This is a bandwidth cost for us
    - The complete plugin code and templates
    - All future updates, this includes new features which we are working on
    - New operators
    - Game updates/additions
    - Full support

    We will be running a launch discount, this is 50% off of the first year. This is limited to the first 25 signups.

    Check out the site for more info!

    $199 that's a bargin, given all the work it takes to set this up if you have to do it all manually. And 50% off for that for the 1'st year, for the 1'st 25 signups... Wow.

    I'll be getting this one for sure.

    I notice there are only three (3) casinos listed, are there more or can you add casinos to the WP plugin/interface after you've activated the plugin?

    Do you have a live working demo? Also, is the price per site the plugin is installed on or can I use it on more then one site? Also, does it work with Wordpress Multisite?

    Found the lobby by hitting a 404 page :) Super nice work! I'll be trying this plugin out!

    If you could cover some US accepting casinos for now that would be great. Maybe AffiliateEdge for RTG to start.

    Thanks! We're currently getting the demo etc up ready for tomorrow, last minute bits and pieces.

    We haven't thought about multiple licenses in depth, but I can assure you that it will be discounted. How many sites do you have?

    I haven't tested it on the multisite yet, my personal experience with MU tells me no. But we can definitely make it compatible.

    Interesting that you mention US casinos, our next up on the feature list was to address the US / EU idea. We want to only serve up location based games... if that's something you guys wanted we can do that.

    Yes location based games would be extremely helpful for multi-country facing sites... To be able to Filter by Category "select your country" type of thing would be great. Keeping up with the US / EU changes can be hard at times...

    As far as number of sites... I have a good handful, but I try to build them as differently as possible, so I would likely only use it on a max of three maybe. I would be happy with two!

    Busines is business so please don't take offense to this question but it's something I need to ask.

    Only three casinos added. Do you receive any kickback or contra deal with the casinos currently activated on the plugin?

    Well of the 3 casinos listed I only promote one (SLotsMillion), they are not top billed either. Frankly I make little to nothing on this brand.
    Being able to add my own casinos and aff links is what I'd need for this plugin to work for my business.

    So looks like I wont be buying it just yet. If this functionality is added, then count me in for sure :)

    I do agree that if able to input your own casinos it would make the plugin much more flexable and attractive. Plus it seems like it would take some work off of you having to keep up with affiliate program changes, you would just need to update for game changes.


    Also (i know your still putting the finishing touches on) but the Microgaming QuickFire games (wow pot, for example) give a 'casino error' right after loading "Close Required. Your game session has been terminated so this page must be closed. If you wish to continue playing this game, please re-open it from the lobby.".


    The rest of the software platforms seem to load the games fine. Its really cool that I can access and sample the games (Being that im in the US...) it will also make reviewing them a lot easier.

    It was too difficult to allow users to add any provider, some games support multiple casinos and some don't, it was quite a challenge to do this but we've made it easier to add more casinos so more will come very soon. I'm sure you'd agree the more casinos the better.

    We don't get any kickback from the casinos, I did contact them offer them a stand alone version just for their games but as of now they're focused on other things. Slotsmillion weren't keen at all.

    You can add your own affiliate links, or do you mean add what you want per game? Because each game is a post so you can add your own content / table if you want (it would be a copy and paste job).

    The game you mentioned might be in the list of games we need to sort.

    Please keep asking questions and requests etc, this plugin is for guys like you!

    Thanks for that observation, I've added a fix so that you can't close the window.

    To prove this point, I logged into my Guts.com account and opened CashSplash (MGS Jackpot Slot) and tried to play it in "free mode".

    [​IMG]

    Maybe a little more research and possibly a beta testing of this plugin, would yeld a far better and overall more suitable plugin for use by your target audience, casino affiliates.

    EG - The MGS jackpot slots error...
    If the plugin had been beta tested, I'm sure some affiliate in the closed test group would have reported that MGS jackpot slots can not be played in free mode.

    As it is now this plugin only has 3 casinos, if you don't market these casinos, then your screwed. Just my opinion but having the ability to add your own casinos to this setup would be ideal and I would think it should have been a must from the get go.... just sayin.

    I like this plugin concept idea but for me, right now, it's not practical.

    If I'm giving players free games, I want to also give them offers of where to play these games at the casinos I promote.

    We've excluded those games, so you shouldn't get any of those errors.

    I can assure you that we will be adding as many as possible in, this is the reason why we've added a Hefty discount for early adopters.

    And maybe some PlayTech games as well.....? I have only checked a small handful of games... I seem to be running into that issue often. I am going to agree that this plugin may need beta testers or a little more work before released as a paid plugin...

    Also, if i do click "play for real money" it loads inside the site in the small iframe... Should it not open a new window in full screen mode? I don't think players would be happy signing up inside the smaller iframe.

    We've taken out all of those games, we've only just updated the final import (we have a testing site before we push to live), this plugin will always be tested and will always be updated. It's the main reason why we offer the service with the plugin, tomorrow may have other games taken down/discontinued.

    I really appreciate your feedback, you are more thorough that our testing and our testers! We have 3 methods of testing, automatic screenshot, a hired tester and my partner.

    It is now up for sale, like I said before the first 25 will get 50%.

    This is our official launch, we are very confinement that you will be satisfied, we offer full support on games and integration, we are Wordpress developers too.

    And if that's not enough we offer a 30 day money back guarantee if you're not happy.

    Coupon code: INSTANT50

    Add it on Checkout!

    Nice job on the plugin. Please keep us updated as you add new casinos/software. If you add RTG and Betsoft games we'll try it for sure.

    Thanks! We are trying to get an independent source for RTG games, if you know of any please share.

    We're adding Winner.com and Bet365, we will get some U.S on there but we'd like to cover casinos on the games we have first.

    Any casinos you guys want please request and we will stick them on the list

    I may still bite.. But I need some strong US programs first as that is my main source of traffic.
