STS Launches Affiliate Programme with Income Access

STSpartner programme for Poland’s leading bookmaker to be managed using Income Access affiliate platform

 

Montreal, QC. 28th February 2018 – STS, the biggest bookmaker in Poland in terms of market share, has launched an affiliate programme in partnership with Income Access, Paysafe’s marketing technology and services provider. The new STSpartner affiliate programme will be managed by STS’ in-house team using Income Access’ affiliate software.

Founded in 1997, STS today holds an almost 50% share of the regulated Polish sports-betting market. The brand’s site allows players to wager online on almost 25 different sports, including football (from the Premier League, Spain’s La Liga, and France’s Ligue 1 to international tournaments), tennis, ice hockey and basketball. STS also provides eSports betting, and was the first brand to introduce wagering on competitive video gaming contests to the Polish market.

To support its overall sports-betting offering, the bookmaker provides broadcasts on over 2,000 sporting events a month through STS TV, enabled through media rights contracts with relevant broadcasters.

STS places a strong and ongoing focus on technological innovation. The brand’s iOS and Android apps are prominent examples of its innovative approach.

European and global iGaming affiliates will now be able to promote the brand following the launch of the STSpartner affiliate programme. The programme’s integration with the Income Access platform, which has won eGR’s B2B ‘Affiliate Software’ four times since 2013, will allow STSpartner’s experienced affiliate managers to target campaigns down to a city level and according to players’ language, device and browser, among numerous other criteria.

More broadly, Income Access’ technology will allow STS to maximise online traffic and optimise conversion rates through the affiliate marketing channel.

Mateusz Juroszek, President of STS, said: “STS is the leading bookmaker in Poland, setting trends for the domestic market. We’re strongly focused on continuously rolling-out pioneering solutions, and our partnership with Income Access, an experienced marketing tech company, is part of this wider strategy. Our goal is to work closely together to achieve synergies across STS-managed online marketing campaigns.

Lorenzo Pellegrino, CEO of Income Access and Digital Wallets at Paysafe, said: “With the largest economy in Eastern Europe and enjoying one of the strongest GDP growth rates of any EU country, Poland is fast becoming a major global sports-betting market. We are therefore excited to partner with STS, the leading Polish bookmaker, and look forward to supporting and maximising the brand’s customer acquisition strategy through our affiliate technology.

PartnerMatrix and SlotsCalendar sign partnership to raise security awareness

 

Affiliate marketing software provider, PartnerMatrix, and SlotsCalendar, the IMDb of online slots, have just signed a partnership, raising awareness about the tools operators and affiliates can use to create a more secure environment.

PartnerMatrix and SlotsCalendar will launch various marketing initiatives, covering topics such as security in affiliate marketing, player orientation in affiliate marketing, the latest tools and techniques in enlarging affiliate presence, and more. The partnership will allow both teams to initiate marketing campaigns, reach new audiences and promote affiliate solutions.

Levon Nikoghosyan, CEO of PartnerMatrix, says: “This partnership holds great importance because it allows us to raise awareness of important topics. We remember how SlotsCalendar entered the market a few years ago and seeing the company reaching such high ranks in affiliate marketing is very motivating. The SlotsCalendar team continues putting tremendous efforts into creating a robust network of iGaming enthusiasts and business representatives, and thanks to this, they have a bright future ahead of them.

“However, SlotsCalendar doesn’t hold interest only for players- many big casino operators and B2B companies are very interested in appearing in the SlotsCalendar’s directories. For PartnerMatrix, this is an excellent chance to create a dialogue within a quality audience and promote our tools and solutions to a bigger audience.”

Viorel Stan, CEO of SlotsCalendar, comments: “The lack of active dialogue on specific topics has led to the vulnerability of some niches. We deal with numerous risks daily, and as soon as we figure out how to deal with some challenges and get used to them, other issues appear. Our partnership with PartnerMatrix will create a more dynamic platform for solving problems related to security, payments, transparency in doing business.

“We will continue to raise important topics and share the experiences of both of our companies. I am sure that our cooperation will bear fruit not only for both of our companies but also for many other industry players.”
