PartnerMatrix makes its comeback
Levon Nykoghosyan, PartnerMatrix CEO, speaks in this interview about the product revamp, key features and product vision, as well as how to overcome the present industry challenges.
Can you detail why PartnerMatrix is such an important release for EveryMatrix in 2017?
Nykoghosyan: PartnerMatrix has been one of the first projects of EveryMatrix and it is not only an important release in 2017 but it has always been an important part of our full package solutions for operators, ranging from sportsbook to casino and payments solutions.
Although the new PartnerMatrix version it’s just two years old, is already a competitive product with a responsive and easy to use interface allowing operators manage affiliates’ data, payment plans, marketing tools, reports and user settings, all from a single location. Simple to implement and supplied with continuous updates, the system is fully adaptable for different markets and regions and has gained trust among both startups and big operators.
Under constant improvement, our system is an ever-evolving solution. The 2017 releases include, among new languages support and many other small improvements, the launching of real-data reporting and the integration with our payment service provider, MoneyMatrix. This integration allows us to provide so many ways for affiliates to withdraw their commissions and this is another step towards providing one of the most powerful affiliate systems in the iGaming market.
From a product perspective what marks PartnerMatrix as a unique software for the saturated affiliate market place?
Nykoghosyan: The most important thing, which was at the core of our key features from the start, (back in 2015), was to build a real-time system, for both affiliates and agents, and track everything under one system instead of using two separate systems that track the same data.
PartnerMatrix allows affiliates to operate as agents (transfer money to specific players, place a bet in the system, place a bet on behalf of a player) and at the same time the agents can operate as affiliates (use banners to bring traffic, provide promo-codes to customers, keep sub-affiliates). This unique system has been designed to offer our clients the ability to widen their users’ base by using agent networks to target offline customers.
I am very happy about the feedback we received from the industry for which I would like to thank our solid and hard-working team.
From your perspective, where do you feel industry affiliates are being underserved, and how has this factor shaped the development of PartnerMatrix as a platform?
Nykoghosyan: I think one of the most significant issues nowadays, is the lack of transparency. It is important for affiliates to be able to see how every single number is being generated instead of just being fed with partial data, like many systems do. More than this, the lack of transparency could lead, over time, to trust problems.
Our solution provides very detailed and comprehensive reports by displaying breakdown of every number, costs, bonuses, etc. We can also provide, like in case of some operators, detailed bets history for a better insight.
Transparency is not the only issue we see within the industry. Lack of support is among things that are on the table and often brought in discussions. To tackle this concern, PartnerMatrix has been established with its own dedicated Account Management team, which allows us to be close to operators, understand their needs, receive their requirements and deliver the solution in the shortest time.
From a marketing and operations perspective, what new obstacles are facing affiliate as an industry acquisition vertical?
Nykoghosyan: There is a huge organic competition between affiliates and our focus is always helping our clients and their affiliates and make sure we give them a powerful advantage over competition.
To this end, the Back-office in PartnerMatrix is highly focused on affiliate manager and administrator comfort. It gives opportunity to reach each angle of the website and successfully manage all the operations.
Relatively new, ad blocking and domain blocking is definitely an obstacle in terms of traffic loss. At PartnerMatrix, we do offer a solution to this problem (which our current affiliates use) by allowing them to choose affiliate domains which do not contain “block words”. Furthermore, operators can immediately change affiliate tracking links if the current domain gets blocked.
Finally, following its initial launch, how do you see PartnerMatrix growing as an EveryMatrix service?
Nykoghosyan: I am happy to see it growing every day, by every new release deployment, with every added feature and, the most rewarding, with every new client.
We strongly believe that finding the right balance between high performance and product quality requires team work and common vision. To that end, EveryMatrix has assembled PartnerMatrix project as a separate business unit in the company to fully concentrate on providing one of the leading performance marketing and partnership solutions in the world. The bar is set high for us, and this is a good thing.
I’m fully confident that competitive pricing, on top of its features, will help PartnerMatrix shine as people’s platform. Whether you are a start-up or a decent sized operator, the platform will meet all operators and affiliates’ needs.

Fiat & Crypto: King Billy players get the best of both worlds
See how the casino players can deposit in crypto and play in fiat.
Since the dawn of e-gaming robust payment systems have been crucial for the success of any online casino, as they are a key factor in creating a positive and satisfying gaming experience. Moreover, the availability of different payment options allows players to choose the method that works best for them, whether it be classical fiat money or cryptocurrency.
But is it possible for an operator to give its players the best of both worlds, fiat and crypto at once? Yes, it is, with the King Billy feature “deposit in crypto, play in fiat”. The concept is simple. A casino player deposits in crypto (choosing among 4 cryptocurrencies King Billy supports). Then, the system automatically shows them their balance in the currency of their choice (among the 14 currencies King Billy supports, used by more than 3 billion people worldwide). When the players withdraw, their transaction takes place back in crypto.
What are the advantages of this system? Ruslan Legenzov, King Billy Casino Head of Affiliates (or “Lord of Affiliates” as the internal etiquette demands) has the answers: “Good things come in threes, and there are certainly 3 very good things about our “deposit in crypto, play in fiat” feature.
First of all, depositing in crypto means less hassle and paperwork for the player and elimination of the dreaded “transaction not coming through” issue. This has been a problem and actually a torment for many of our players in remote areas of the world. As a global casino, we are happy to act in ways that give peace of mind to our players.
Secondly, this system offers a greater player experience to the King Billy Citizens and Nobles, as they can now take advantage of our numerous promotions and offers in fiat. For example, players who deposit in crypto can now participate in our extremely popular fiat-only “Slot of the Month” offer, that’s been a staple of our casino since our launch.
Finally, with “deposit in crypto, play in fiat” our players, especially the not so cryptocurrency-savvy have a much clearer understanding of their wins or losses. I am sure that a player, let’s say from Vietnam, prefers to see, in real time, how much his slot win is worth in the Vietnamese Dong than running in parallel a crypto converter tool to do the math!”
Well said and well done your Majesty.
For those interested in the “deposit in crypto, play in fiat” feature, King Billy Casino accepts the following currencies: Euro (€), US Dollar ($), Canadian Dollar (C$), Australian Dollar (A$), New Zealand Dollar (NZ$), Norwegian Krone (kr), Indian Rupee (₹), South African Rand (R), Vietnamese dong (₫), Indonesian rupiah (Rp), Malaysian ringgit (RM), Thai baht (฿) and the Philippine peso (₱). King Billy also accepts the following cryptocurrencies: Bitcoin (BTC), Ethereum (ETH), Litecoin (LTC) and Tether (USDT).
King Billy Casino is a new-generation online casino, launched on St. Patrick’s Day in 2017. It is available in 4 languages (English, German, French and Finnish) and it has an impressive record in awards with 25 wins, shortlists and other distinctions, and an amazing variety of features and games. King Billy has prioritized the creation of a superb user experience, focusing on the myth of King Billy and his Kingdom and treats all players with the specialness they deserve.
Rightlander wins “Best Tech for Affiliate Programmes” at IGB Affiliate Awards 2023
Following the launch of their innovative Smart Workbench, Rightlander, the advertising and affiliate compliance monitoring specialist, have won the award for ‘Best Technology for Affiliate Programmes’ at this year’s IGB awards ceremony in London. The annual award, dubbed the Oscars of the iGaming affiliate market, recognises the most successful businesses in the gambling industry.
Rightlander is a state-of-the-art advertising and affiliate compliance platform that allows advertisers and networks to identify potentially non-compliant content across different territories. It does this by scanning affiliate content from within the target market, looking for events or conditions defined by clients and regulators, and sending alerts when it finds content that meets those conditions.
According to the judges, who praised the submission’s clear evidence and figures showing customer adoption and cost savings, Rightlander’s offering is “a very strong piece of technology which leads the industry in protecting affiliates, operators and ultimately players and ultimately makes the industry better for being in it.”
Ian Sims, Founder of Rightlander said “We are extremely happy to have won the Best Tech for Affiliate Programmes and this is a milestone moment for Rightlander. We developer/marketing folks love to throw around words like “game changing” and “AI-driven” but when you win an award for “Best Tech for Affiliate Programmes” and it’s one of the judges calling it a “game changer”, that is quite an endorsement.”
Over the past 5 years, Rightlander has scanned tens of millions of webpages to help advertisers identify non-compliant advertising by their marketing partners to protect their brand and regulatory licenses.
Casino Guru wins IGB Affiliates Safer Gambling Initiative of the Year
Casino Guru has won the IGB Affiliates recognition in the Safer Gambling Initiative of the Year category.
Casino Guru has won the IGB Affiliates Awards distinction in the Safer Gambling Initiative of the Year category, an award granted to affiliate services with an unfaltering track record in their commitment to raising player protection standards and contributing to the industry’s ability to better understand gambling-related harm.
Casino Guru underwent a thorough review, which included a look into how the company sought to educate and protect players beyond statutory requirements and the active steps taken to introduce players to a safer gambling journey in every market they engage with.
The assessment distinguished Casino Guru for its comprehensive efforts in responsible gambling and gambling harm prevention as captured by the Gamtegrity, the unifying home of all responsible gambling and consumer protection projects and initiatives launched under the Casino Guru banner and name.
Spearheaded by Šimon Vincze, Casino Guru’s Sustainable & Safer Gambling Lead, Gamtegrity reunites some of the company’s most impactful projects and initiatives geared towards raising standards for the entire industry insofar as problem gambling, player behavior, and harm protection are concerned.
Vincze hailed the IGB Affiliates distinction as a deserved and important milestone in the company’s ongoing efforts to provide the industry with guidance on how to better protect consumers and provide players with assistance on their journey to picking the best and most responsible industry operators.
“QUOTE by Šimon”
I am thrilled from this recognition as it includes most of the projects that I work on. However, this achievement is a reflection of work throughout the departments of Casino Guru and I feel honored to translate it to the rest of the industry. Safer Gambling is undersized in affiliate space, and it is great that iGB motivates companies to compete in it.
Casino Guru’s Gamtegrity project reunites the company’s Global Self-Exclusion System (GSES), an ambitious cross-border initiative designed to create a comprehensive global mechanism that enables players to exclude themselves from regulated gambling markets and focus on recovery.
Casino Guru has similarly focused on creating tools that assist and help vulnerable players to address their problem as well as find help, extensive global information and easy access to treatment options.
The company has also leveraged its industry expertise to create the Casino Guru Academy, an ambitious undertaking which understands how important it is to educate industry professionals about best practices in customer support, casino bonuses, safer gambling, and other important areas.
Not least, Casino Guru’s ample effort and experience in maintaining responsible gambling standards that go beyond national legislation have led the company to set up the Casino Guru Awards which seeks to distinguish prominent operators that share the company’s core values in providing consumers with the safest gambling possible.
The Safer Gambling Initiative of the Year distinction is evidence of the strong and meaningful impact Casino Guru has had in bettering responsible gambling standards and seeking to actively assist players who may struggle with gambling-related problems or suffer gambling-related harm.
