FANSUNITE ACQUIRES AMERICAN AFFILIATE, ACCELERATING ENTRY INTO U.S. GAMING MARKET

FansUnite Entertainment Inc., is pleased to announce a definitive agreement dated November 22, 2021 pursuant to which the Company has acquired (“Transaction”) the businesses and brands of American Affiliate LLC (“American Affiliate”). The Transaction will result in FansUnite securing a podium position in the U.S. online betting opportunity and will be the cornerstone of a larger U.S. affiliate strategy going forward.

“The acquisition of American Affiliate represents the most significant milestone for FansUnite to date,” said Scott Burton, CEO of FansUnite Entertainment. “This transformative transaction will provide us further access to the lucrative U.S. regulated sports betting and online gambling market while generating accretive, high-margin revenue, expanding our leadership team, and accelerating the growth of our company’s footprint in the global gambling market.”

“When we looked at how quickly the U.S market is expanding, it made clear strategic sense for us to enter the affiliate business as a way to partner with some of the largest gambling companies in the world,” continued Scott Burton. “We will now own and operate an unparalleled customer acquisition portfolio, allowing us to leverage our technology, brands, and talent to immediately capture share in the U.S. sports betting and online gambling market.”

Combined, the American Affiliate brands represent one of the most significant single sources of new depositing customers for legal U.S. sports betting and online gambling operators. The leadership team has over 40 years of combined experience in the regulated gambling industry, including senior roles at market leaders such as ACEP, Amelco, DraftKings, Catena Media, and GeoComply.

Brands, platforms, content, and services highlighted in the Transaction include:

Betting Hero (www.bettinghero.com)

Props (www.props.com)

BetPrep (www.betprep.com)

“Legal U.S. sportsbooks and online casinos are spending billions of dollars to acquire and retain customers,” said American Affiliate CEO Chris Grove. “Our brands, team, and technology allow us to capture a meaningful share of that marketing spend today while producing some of the highest margins in the U.S. online betting ecosystem.”

“But that success is only a starting point,” Grove continued. “We anticipate unprecedented near-term growth as legal online betting continues to expand into new states and new products. Joining with FansUnite was key to our strategy of aggressively scaling our business to meet that opportunity head-on.”

Casino Guru and AffPapa join forces to launch a new course on iGaming affiliate management

 

Casino Guru, the leading information source and online casino database, has recently joined forces with AffPapa, the ultimate iGaming directory connecting affiliates and operators, to deliver a brand-new free professional course on affiliate management. The course, titled iGaming Affiliate Management Essentials, is the latest addition to the Casino Guru Academy and aims to contribute to a broader understanding of affiliate management while sharing best practices with the rest of the industry. Designed for everyone looking to enhance their knowledge of the iGaming affiliate landscape, the course caters to both aspiring affiliate managers and seasoned professionals.

With over 6,200 online casinos in its extensive database, Casino Guru is no stranger to affiliate management. Combined with AffPapa’s role as a facilitator in connecting operators and affiliate websites for a fruitful partnership, the course seamlessly combines the expertise of two prominent figures in the iGaming affiliation sector. In as little as 90 minutes, participants of the course can receive a certificate that not only backs up their knowledge of affiliate management essentials but also showcases their commitment to cultivating affiliate management best practices.

The course is structured into three chapters. While the first chapter aims to explain the fundamental principles of affiliate management, the second one incorporates insights from AffPapa, the ultimate iGaming directory, who drew inspiration from the expertise of their seasoned affiliate managers operating affiliate program management services for casinos. The third and final chapter offers a snapshot of activities related to affiliate management from the perspective of affiliate websites. This includes a detailed overview of how Casino Guru approaches affiliate business, including the company’s philosophy, values, and strategic vision when it comes to building and maintaining relationships with affiliates.

Šimon Vincze, Casino Guru’s Head of Sustainable & Safer Gambling, expressed his enthusiasm over the latest release of Casino Guru Academy: “I’m thrilled to announce the launch of this course and finally get it out there! Working with AffPapa has been a fantastic experience, and I’m glad we were able to bring their expertise with affiliate programs into the mix and offer yet another unique point of view. I’m confident that as individuals engage with the content, they’ll not only gain essential insights but also discover innovative approaches that can significantly impact their affiliate path in the future.”

Levon Nikoghosyan, AffPapa’s CEO & Co-Founder, commented: “We are thrilled to announce our collaboration with Casino Guru for the launch of their latest course on iGaming Affiliate Management. The kickoff of our affiliate management service last year was driven by the growing demand from our registered operators, leveraging our expertise in the field. Casino Guru’s commitment to educating the iGaming industry aligns seamlessly with our vision, and we are delighted to contribute our extensive knowledge in affiliate management to enhance this initiative.”

An exciting update accompanies the launch of the course – a brand new look featuring a completely redesigned system that enhances interactivity and flexibility across various devices. This marks a unique opportunity to witness the difference firsthand, as the revamped design will soon be applied to older courses as well. With the latest course now available online, Casino Guru Academy invites participants to uncover the world of iGaming affiliate management through the combined lens of Casino Guru and AffPapa.

Catena Media launches online sports betting affiliation in Vermont

 

Catena Media, one of North America’s largest sports betting affiliates, launches online sports betting affiliation in Vermont as the north-eastern state opens for licensed sports wagering.

Vermont’s Department of Liquor and Lottery selected three operators to go live on 11 January.

All Catena Media’s national brands are carrying strong Vermont content to coincide with the launch. Complementing this coverage is content published by the group’s media partners, which include NJ.com and TheSportingNews.com.

Vermont, a small state with an adult population of 0.5 million, is the last of the New England states to allow online sports betting and is the first new market to open in North America in 2024. The next slated state is North Carolina, which is expected to launch legal sports betting in the coming months.

Ryan Harper, Catena Media’s Vice President for North America, said: “Initial interest from both the industry and sports bettors in Vermont is strong. Vermonters have enjoyed online daily fantasy sports products and horse-race wagering so are no strangers to the online market.”

Vermont expands Catena Media’s operational footprint in North America to more than 28 US states and Canadian provinces.

iGB Affiliate announce One Hundred Shoreditch as new HQ Hotel

 

The organising team responsible for iGB Affiliate has announced One Hundred Shoreditch as its new HQ Hotel for February’s event (6-9 February, ExCeL London).

Located in a prominent position on fashionable Shoreditch High Street, One Hundred Shoreditch is an acclaimed independent 258 room hotel offering a choice of places to eat and drink including Seed Library, an attractive rooftop bar and terrace offering panoramic views of the London skyline, a coffee shop, and the Lobby Bar which hosts a curated programme of weekly DJs alongside £10 cocktails. The venue offers five meeting and event spaces including the floor-to-ceiling glass One Hundred Room.

Announcing the new HQ Hotel, iGB Affiliate’s Naomi Barton said: “We were looking for a hotel close to ExCeL and that would connect with the unique personality of the Affiliate community.

“I have to say that One Hundred Shoreditch could have been designed with affiliates in mind! It’s as sassy as hell with great facilities, a roof top bar with amazing views of East London and it’s situated in the social heart of the vibrant East End. The bedrooms and suites provide headspace and calm in contrast to the energy of the ultra-cool hotel bars.

“I am confident One Hundred Shoreditch will resonate with show attendees – it will allow guests to socialise, network and hang out together, continuing the unique iGB Affiliate experience.  We have secured 150 rooms which will be allocated on a first come, first served basis, so book now and don’t miss out on the chance to be with your peers and friends!”

She added: “The 2024 edition of iGB Affiliate will be the last held in London prior to our relocation to Barcelona the following year. As a consequence, there will be an iGB Affiliate ‘Farewell to London’ party like no other and we will be celebrating alongside our sister show ICE to ensure that we deliver something exceptional. The farewell party, iGB Affiliate Awards and our new Hotel HQ are all part of the social and networking opportunities which are pivotal to the show experience and make iGB Affiliate so special”.
