Affilka by SoftSwiss launches new module for sportsbook

 

Affilka by SoftSwiss recently announced the official launch of its new module designed specifically for sportsbooks. Now the innovative affiliate platform provides its services not only to online casino projects but also to the sports betting industry.

Affilka expanded its functionality by adding an additional Sportsbook module, which may be turned on and off, depending on the availability of a sportsbook within a particular project. The new module includes an upgraded API, which enables raw data collection on multiple player activities within sportsbook solutions from iGaming brands.

In addition to such player activities as Visits, Registrations, First deposits, Deposits, and Cashouts, Affilka now also collects the following data on sports betting activities on a player level: Sportsbook bets, Sportsbook cancelled bets, Sportsbook wins, Sportsbook GGR (gross revenue), Sportsbook bonuses, Sportsbook balance corrections, Sportsbook third party fees, Sportsbook NGR (net revenue).

Anastasia Borovaya, Affilka Product Owner at SoftSwiss, commented: “We’re excited to be launching this new module for the sports betting industry and therefore expanding our services to more exciting new projects. The sports betting industry is developing at an exceptionally rapid pace. More and more of our customers who operate online casinos are expanding by establishing sportsbook solutions. We couldn’t stand aside, therefore we decided to offer our current and future clients a new option that expands opportunities and helps to increase their efficiency.”

Moreover, significant improvements were made to the commission constructor for CPA and RevShare deals within sportsbook projects. In terms of RevShare deals, sportsbook operators can share a percentage of their net revenue with their partners. The percentage of revenue payable to affiliates may be fixed or may be defined by various performance tiers. For example a percent of revenue may depend on the number of FTDs, number of deposits, or sportsbook net revenue tiers. As for CPA deals, an operator may set the rules for player qualification based not only on their deposits but sportsbook bets as well. Hybrid deals are also available and include the same settings as the CPA and RevShare models.

As for postbacks, similar to Casino NGR postback, Affilka added a new postback event – Sportsbook NGR. This postback is sent with Sportsbook NGR amount for each player (for a particular period). In addition to that, the parameters of Sportsbook bets were added to several types of qualifying postbacks.

Affilka is an affiliate marketing platform developed by SoftSwiss. A reliable, safe, and trustworthy tool allowing iGaming operators to manage and analyze their affiliates and their marketing performance. The solution offers automated payouts to affiliates via built-in payment processing methods, an advanced commission constructor, powerful reporting, and in-depth analytics.

Betway brings affiliate programme in-house

Operator taking full control over affiliate management to ensure highest standards of regulatory compliance

 

5th February, 2018 – Leading operator Betway has begun the process of bringing its affiliate programme fully in-house, underlining its continued commitment to meeting the industry’s highest regulatory standards.

Its third-party partners will now be fully managed by the operator to monitor more closely affiliate programmes in changing regulatory landscapes across several of its operational territories.

The move will see a migration of work from its current affiliate partner manager, Buffalo Partners, into – Betway Partners – which will then manage the affiliate programme moving forward.

The transfer of business will begin on March 1st 2018 and Betway will work closely with its current partners to ensure they are kept fully informed of the changes and how it will affect them.

Anthony Werkman, CEO of Betway, said: “Managing the affiliate sector is vital in maintaining Betway’s values, so to ensure we remain fully compliant with changing regulatory requirements we will be formally bringing our affiliate programme in-house.

We value our affiliate partners greatly and look forward to working with them over the next few years in order to grow this successful area of the business. In doing so we will be focusing on delivering the highest regulatory standards in all our markets as well as ensuring that a clearer alignment with Betway values and systems is in place, and through that greater overall transparency and accountability is achieved.

We will continue to work alongside regulatory bodies to ensure a safe and fair environment for all.

Betway will offer affiliates across all its operational jurisdictions continued assistance as it begins the process of managing them in-house.

888 to shut down UK affiliate programme?

888 to shut UK affiliate programme?

888 has denied it is shutting down its UK affiliate programme after a number of affiliates received emails yesterday stating they must no longer target UK traffic and 888 would no longer pay them commission for newly generated players.

 

In an email seen by iGaming Business, affiliates were told: “As you may be aware the regulatory landscape for affiliates is constantly changing and evolving, especially in the UK. In order to help ensure that we work with our affiliate partners in a compliant manner, we are seeking to exert greater control on the traffic which is generated from the UK.

As a result, from January 29th 2018, you must not target UK IP addresses and/or any persons located in the UK. Therefore, we shall no longer pay you any commission with regard to money players in the UK which you generate.

Some posters on the GPWA (Gambling Portal Webmasters Association) forum interpreted the email to mean the programme was shutting down. “Unless I’m reading things incorrectly with my dodgy eyes…bye bye then!” said one.

When contacted by iGB, the operator said: “888 takes the issue of responsible gaming very seriously and has taken a number steps to ensure its marketing complies with the Gambling Commission’s LCCP and ASA’s advertising codes.

In order to monitor the actions of affiliates more closely, 888 has already terminated its relationship with a large number of affiliates and will continue to close and terminate accounts in order to work with fewer affiliate partners and have better oversight of their activities.

Duncan Garvie, who runs affiliate and mediation site ThePogg, said he hadn’t received the email as he no longer works with 888, but that it didn’t surprise him.

I’ve been anticipating this particular move for a while now. With the punitive approach the UK authorities have been taking towards operators and affiliates we’ve already seen a number of programmes close up completely or implement very aggressive terms.

I was fully expecting one of them to work out eventually that they simply had to stop accepting UK traffic from affiliates rather than close or destroy their reputation with really questionable terms.

Another poster on the GPWA forum pointed out the email did also contain the following line: “If you do wish to continue working with us in the UK please contact us, through this link: http://affiliates.888.com/contact-us.htm.

His take on it was: “I think if you are prepared to work closely with them, accept the UK marketing guidelines and make any changes they request you to, that you can still carry on working with them.

Operators have come under fire for their marketing activities, including those carried out by affiliates, over the past year and 888 was one of several operators to receive a warning from the Advertising Standards Authority over an advert run by an affiliate partner.

As a consequence, operators have been placing more and more compliance demands on affiliates. Bet365 recently carried out an overhaul of its programme and Paddy Power unveiled a ‘one-strike’ policy for affiliates in September.

In September, Sky Bet controversially announced that it was shutting down its affiliate programme altogether, although some have been cynical about its motives.

In a recent interview with iGaming Business’ sister publication iGB Affiliate magazine, Gambling.com’s Charles Gillespie said: “Let’s be clear — Sky still works with strategic media partners. My take on the Sky situation is that it was a set of unique circumstances — they are preparing for a listing this year, private equity owns the business, the owners and the management of the business are being very aggressive on hitting targets and what can be easier than turning off a bunch of legacy rev share and using compliance as an excuse?

The 888 email suggested, however, that it will be taking a less heavy handed approach to historic traffic than Sky Bet, with the email also having stated: “The aforementioned shall not apply with respect to non-UK money players or to money players which you have generated in the UK prior to such date, subject to the Uffiliate terms and conditions found at http://affiliates.888.com/terms-and-conditions/ (the “Terms”).”
