Rightlander will help Kindred Group strengthen affiliate compliance through its innovative landing page tracker.
Rightlander, the ground-breaking affiliate landing page tracker, has partnered with Kindred Affiliates, the affiliate program of Kindred Group, to help the operator strengthen affiliate compliance and boost its responsible gambling measures.
The technology scans any website and builds a list of locations where an operator’s brand is referenced or linked to. It follows each link to its final destination on the website and records data including affiliate tags, anchor text and creative materials being used to link to the brand.
This will help Kindred Affiliates monitor affiliate websites linking to all of its brands, including Unibet, 32Red and Roxy Palace, allowing the program to further confirm the affiliates sending traffic to its sites are acting responsibly.
The platform also allows Kindred Affiliates to set “compliance alerts” that notify both the program and any Rightlander-registered affiliate automatically when specific criteria defined by the operator is found on affiliate websites during scans. By using Rightlander, Kindred Affiliates is taking additional steps to ensure the affiliates sending traffic to its websites are complying with supplier agreements and corporate values.
Rightlander founder, Ian Sims, said: “We are pleased to have joined forces with Kindred Affiliates, helping them strengthen affiliate compliance and responsibility across all of its online gambling brands. In the eyes of UK regulators, operators are responsible for the affiliates acting on their behalf, but keeping track of their activity is complex and time consuming. We make that process much easier and far more effective.”
Ryan Henderson at Kindred Affiliates, said: “As a licensed operator in multiple jurisdictions, Kindred Group puts Responsible Gambling and Sustainability at the very core of our business. Our affiliate partners are expected to share these values, while remaining compliant with the regulations and rules issued by the relevant authorities.
Rightlander adds an additional layer of oversight to our existing processes. The technology provides automated reporting that allows the Kindred Affiliates team to quickly identify where and how our Brands are being promoted, ensuring that all partners are aligned in their marketing approach.”
SLOTS TEMPLE GETS LICENSED IN UK, FREE SLOTS SITE NOW OFFERING CASH PRIZES
Slots Temple is first affiliate to win UKGC licensing, allowing it to offer real-money prizes for slots tournaments
Free online slots platform Slots Temple has become the first affiliate site to be awarded a UK Gambling Commission licence. That’s good news for slots fans. It means the company can now legally give out cash prizes for winners of its free-to-play tournaments.
Slots Temple offers free casino games and tournaments to players over the age of 18, where they can compete against others to get to the top of the leaderboard and win prizes.
The platform hosts more than 10,000 slots from some of the world’s best casino games studios, including Push Gaming, Relax Gaming ReelPlay and 4ThePlayer. The difference is, Slots Temple does not take any stake money. All its slots are completely free to play, no catch.
Instead, the company generates affiliate revenues when players sign up to real-money online casinos by clicking through banner advertising, although there is no obligation to do so.
Until now, Slots Temple has been unable to offer real-money prizes, just merchandise. But now, players can play their favourite slots while competing to win cash prizes of up to £5,000.
As well as cash prizes, Slots Temple will be launching a range of new tournament formats. These include Turbo Tournaments, which run for a short time only, and Risk Tournaments, where players are given a fixed balance and can adjust their bet size on each spin.
Currently, tournaments run daily, as well as weekly and monthly, so there’s plenty of opportunity to win those points and work your way up the leaderboard.
Fraser Linkleter, Director at Slots Temple said: “It’s always great to achieve an industry first, and we’re proud to be the first affiliate site to receive UKGC licensing. Licensees are held to high regulatory standards, and we believe this demonstrates our long-held commitment to social responsibility. But above all, the licence adds excitement and value for our users, who get to compete for cash while paying nothing up front. And what’s not to like about that?”
Largest Dutch poker affiliate complies with regulatory changes post introduction of new Dutch gambling law
PokerKamers.nl, one of the Netherlands’ first and largest poker affiliate sites, introduced a new policy that fully complies with the regulatory changes that came in effect after the Dutch Gambling Authority (Kansspelautoriteit/ KSA) introduced its set of rules for operators to offer legal poker in the Netherlands.
As of October 2021, PokerKamers.nl, a Dutch spoken website existing since 2006, launched its new website. The founders introduced a policy to comply with new regulations, after the new Dutch gambling law took effect on October 1st of 2021.
“Being fully compliant meant saying farewell to online poker sites that did not receive a license to legally operate in the Netherlands; this includes renowned sites like partypoker and bwin, as parent company Entain’s initial application got rejected,” said PokerKamers.nl founder Joris Koningsberg.
Entain plc, one of the world’s largest gambling/ gaming, poker, and betting operators, did not receive a license to offer their brands in the Netherlands, including their online poker sites, because they continued to accept Dutch customers after the market closed due to the Dutch Remote Gambling Act (Kansspel op Afstand/ KOA) on April 1st of 2021.
“It was an easy decision, because the only other option was working with illegal poker sites. And besides, one of our favorite partners (ed: Hillside plc’s bet365) did receive their license,” said Joris Koningsberg.
Meanwhile, all Entain brands now comply to the Dutch Gambling Authority’s cooling off period and the company is expected to obtain a license in the first half of 2022.
With the decision to be fully compliant to Dutch law and regulations, PokerKamers.nl also improved the overall quality of its website. A new look and feel, a comprehensive audit of all existing pages and many new, were completed before the launch of their new website.
“And there is more,” said PokerKamers.nl co-owner Oscar Oosterling, “We have added a poker course, several tools including a tournament filter and the M-Calculator, and poker cheat sheets. And our to-do list is only getting bigger.”
PokerKamers.nl is a website to keep on your radar the next few months. New gambling licenses will be issued, and this website will only list the very best of them. You can expect continuous updates and new features that improve the overall quality and user experience. And with PokerKamers.nl being a compliant poker affiliate, you can rest assured that you’re not going to be misled into signing up with shady – or illegal poker sites.
