Affiliate portal owner takes legal action against programme over retroactive quotas

Dave Sawyer founder of OnlineCasinoReviewer.com two nights ago initiated legal proceedings against an affiliate program for inserting a clause into its T&Cs that defaults affiliates to 10% commission if they failed to send the required number of players over a two-month period.

Dave Sawyer launched the legal action against Interactive Technology Corporation, which he claims is the parent company of Affiliate Edge, after he received no response to his demand for payment of $6,335.80 (£4,800).

This is the amount Sawyer claims his company Bath Rock Media Ltd would have received for the months of June and July 2017 had the retroactively applied clause not been inserted into the terms and conditions near the start of this year. The change was not directly communicated to affiliate partners in the programme, Sawyer claims.

Clause 4.7, added to the Affiliate Edge T&Cs in February 2017, stipulates that: “Affiliates who send 5 FTD’s or less over a 2 calendar month period collectively will be marked as ‘non active’ and will be reduced to 10% default commission.

“The action I am taking is I believe unprecedented when it comes to iGaming Affiliates. Affiliates should not have to stand for retroactive terms and I am hoping the courts will see it the same way as I and also my peers do.” – said Dave Sawyer in a statement on his site.

Sawyer launched the legal action to recover the monies after a claim for payment within 30 days went unheeded by ITC.

Affiliate Edge, formerly CWC Affiliates, is the programme for eight casino brands running on the BeSoftware and Real Time Gaming platforms, including Club World, Lucky Red and Aladdin’s Gold.

Contacted by iGB for comment, Affiliate Edge Manager Darren Brenner provided a copy of a letter sent to Sawyer dated 25 September in which the company called the casino affiliate’s financial claim “groundless” and stated that they had acted in accordance with Clause 8.5 of the terms and conditions of predecessor programme CWC Affiliates that Sawyer signed up to back in 2006, under which “agreement may be modified by posting the new agreement on to the site.”

The letter also stated that the agreement is governed by the laws of Curacao, where Affiliate Edge is based, so Sawyer “cannot issue proceedings in England and should you do so you will be liable for costs.”

Lindar Media Launches New MrQ Affiliate Programme with Income Access

 

Newly-launched bingo brand will use Income Access’ affiliate platform to grow UK acquisitions

 

Lindar Media, the UK-based operator of white-label online bingo and casino brands, has announced the launch of the MrQ affiliate programme with Income Access, Paysafe Group’s marketing technology and services provider. The programme will support the MrQ bingo brand, which launched in August and runs on proprietary software developed by the team at Lindar.

MrQ currently operates nine online bingo rooms, offering a variety of 75-ball, 90-ball and jackpot bingo.

Affiliates of the MrQ programme will be equipped with a range of marketing tools, including ads in multiple formats and dimensions, with bespoke landing pages available upon request. Through the Income Access platform, affiliates can evaluate the performance of marketing campaigns and use data-based insights to guide future efforts. MrQ marks the second affiliate programme that Lindar has launched with Income Access – the first integration took place in April.

The programme will supply key resources, including affiliate management support, an in-house CRM team to maximise player value and a content specialist to craft site reviews in a suitable tone and style. MrQ affiliates will also earn 70% revenue share commission for their first three months of membership.

Complementing MrQ’s bingo product is a catalogue of 28 slot games supplied by Thunderkick and 50 additional titles from Eyecon set to be integrated by the end of the year. Players have access to a variety of bonus offers, the details of which can be found on the MrQ Promotions page.

MrQ runs two 24-hour bingo rooms – Popcorn and Winner Takes All – and is the first and only bingo site to offer uncapped real money winnings to its players, with no wagering required. The platform that runs the site incorporates dynamic bingo scheduling and an automated marketing platform. Furthermore, it includes a unique business intelligence tool that facilitates responsible gambling and the correct prioritisation of compliance integrations, which is supported by a specialised team that ensures adherence to UK regulations and the proactive protection of player interests.

James Booth, Acquisition Operations Manager at Lindar Media, said: “Income Access has an excellent reputation as the go-to affiliate tracking platform in the iGaming space. We’ve used them in our own capacity as an affiliate and as a white-label operator, so it made sense to use them as a partner for our custom-built platform.”

Booth added: “The affiliate channel naturally makes up a huge portion of our marketing activity, but Income Access is used across all of our channels and to evaluate all of our marketing partners, including our agency-led marketing campaigns.”

Tara Wilson, General Manager at Income Access, Paysafe Group, said: “We’re excited about the opportunity to build on our existing relationship with the team at Lindar through this new launch. They are committed to providing unique player experiences and we’re proud that our affiliate platform will play a role in their continued success.”
