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.

Bojoko crowned Affiliate of the Year at EGR Nordic Awards
Popular online casino listing site fends off stiff competition to take home the trophy at prestigious awards ceremony
The Bojoko team is celebrating once again after being named Affiliate of the Year at the prestigious EGR Nordic Awards 2021.
This is the second EGR award that Bojoko has taken home after being crowned Casino Affiliate of the Year at the hotly contested EGR Operator Awards 2020.
Bojoko fought off stiff competition from some of the biggest names in the affiliate industry including AskGamblers, Better Collective, Blexr, Catena Media and the Gambling.com Group.
EGR judges said it had been “another excellent year” for Bojoko and that its SEO performance and overall conversion “really shines”.
The EGR judges added: “A more unique idea than most affiliates with great growth and sustainability. A very clever and new type of affiliate that is showing great success. Well done!”
Bojoko allows online casino operators and game developers in the Nordics to create their own dedicated listing page and tell their story through their own words, images and videos.
Bojoko members, of which there are now 30,000+, then rate and review each casino and game and share their honest opinion about the experience they receive.
During the judging period Bojoko built out its team dedicated to the Nordics which led to a 10x increase in unique site visitors and a 25x increase in registered Finnish players.
Joonas Karhu, Chief Business Officer at Bojoko.com, said: “We will need to find more space for our trophies after scooping our second EGR award in as many months but seriously, the entire team is thrilled how have been recognised for our work in the Nordics.
“The Nordics remain a key focus for us and we see plenty of opportunity to drive growth from the region by providing players with our award-winning online casino listing product and service.
“Our mission from day one has been to help players quickly and easily select online casinos through transparency and community feedback and it is a concept that has proved to be hugely popular.
“I would like to thank the EGR judges for recognising our efforts and successes in the Nordics by crowning Bojoko Affiliate of the Year 2021.”
