Thimba Media acquires UK Affiliation Website Theslotbuzz.com
Thimba Media, the iGaming performance marketing company, delivered on one of the companies core strategic goals of growing through both organic and M&A pillars by announcing its acquisition of the UK based organic affiliation website theslotbuzz.com (“theslotbuzz”).
As a result of the acquisition, Thimba Media’s revenues within locally regulated markets will be approximately 40%.
The agreed purchase price for The Slot Buzz represents a multiple of approximately 3.9 times Net Income, based on current run rate. The Slot Buzz is expected to generate EBITDA of $500,000 in this financial year.
Chris Russell, CEO of Thimba said: “The acquisition of The Slot Buzz is an important strategic deal for us from the perspective that we view ourselves as a contrarian investor. When many affiliates are looking solely at the US market for acquisitions, we are looking at value markets where there is strong regulation and rule of law to govern our business stability in the coming years.”
With its strong brand and community of Slots Players, theslotbuzz.com is a perfect addition to our business. We see the step as a strengthening of our commitment to locally regulated markets globally. Our next step for this asset is to grow it from a UK facing brand to a brand which focuses on locally regulated English speaking markets including the ever-regulating US market.
Mark Wadie, of site owner’s Helicon One Digital Ltd, said “We are excited to be completing this sale with Thimba Media which is testament to our hard work and dedication. The Slot Buzz has achieved fantastic growth in the UK and becomes part of a company with a history of successfully growing affiliate sites across the regulated global market. We now look forward to continuing our own journey as we enter the North American markets with our new site, The Casino Heat.” (thecasinoheat.ca)
The acquisition was settled using Thimba Media’s current cash balance.

AskGamblers Awards Show and Charity Event Go Virtual, and Will be Held in June 2021
The organisers made a decision to turn the AskGamblers Awards show and the Charity event into virtual ceremonies – both taking place on 17 June, 2021. The Awards have been celebrating the best of the best in the iGaming industry for 3 consecutive years and, this time, the show will be held as a virtual gala event, due to COVID-19.
It’s official – the AskGamblers Awards ceremony will take place on 17 June, and will be held online, due to the ongoing pandemic. The health and well-being of all the participants are of utmost importance to the organisers of the AskGamblers Awards event and it is, therefore, being held in a manner that is both safe and consistent. All our partners will also be able to attend the AskGamblers Virtual Charity event which will happen on the same day, and will be dedicated to raising funds to support charity organisations.
AskGamblers Awards have been celebrating the best in the industry for more than three years. So, once again, the Awards will allow all iGaming aficionados to have their voice be heard and help select the best of the best for the year 2020 in the categories, listed as follows:
Best New Casino
Best New Slot
In addition, there will also be an award for the Best Affiliate Manager and the Best Partner.
The winners of all categories will be chosen through the joint efforts of the AskGamblers team of experts and players’ votes, while a separate award called Players’ Choice will depend solely on players. As for the Best New Casino and Best New Slot categories, only the ones that have been listed on AskGamblers website between March 2020 and March 2021 will be eligible for these two Awards.
AskGamblers will traditionally host a Charity event to raise money for the good cause, only this time, the event will be virtual. Dedicated to raising funds to support charity organisations, the event will give all partners a chance to contribute to this cause and, in doing so, to make a difference.
Back in January 2020, we managed to raise €66,900 during the AskGamblers Charity night. Namely, €50,000 was directed to UNICEF through Catena Operations Ltd. to help fight COVID-19, while NORBS foundation and “Zvončica” Parent organization of children with cancer received the rest of the funds. It was all possible thanks to our casino partners who participated in the event.
As General Manager AskGamblers, Denis Ristic, said: “We’re here to celebrate the best of the best in the betting and gaming industry, and ever since the COVID-19 pandemics interfered in our plans, we decided it was time to move the events online. After all, health and wellbeing of our guests are currently our primary concerns. And, although the AskGamblers Awards show and the Charity event will be very different in comparison to their previous editions, we can promise entertaining affairs!”
