Annual gathering offers expert learning with tangible insights to help affiliates growth hack their businesses
August 2017 – AffiliateFEST, the annual independent growth accelerator focused on educating affiliates and sharing insights on digital growth hacking, is hosting its third annual event on 10th October 2017 at London’s Hippodrome Casino in Leicester Square.
The goal of AffiliateFEST is to create a forum of intense learning that brings together iGaming affiliates and digital marketing experts to share tangible insights that help stimulate revenue growth. As the only purely educational event in the annual iGaming calendar, AffiliateFEST offers a personalised classroom environment.
The event is hosted by Lee-Ann Johnstone, CEO of Best Odds Marketing, who said that one of the core benefits is that the event is run under a non-disclosure agreement (NDA). “Generally, iGaming conferences can be a bit thin on providing real actionable content, competition is fierce and people are naturally guarded about giving away their knowledge. We run AffiliateFEST under strict NDA so everybody in attendance, can benefit from the real nuts and bolts insights that you would normally only learn about in a private 1:1 setting.”
AffiliateFEST will be a gathering of the best expert speakers from a variety of specialist digital and business management areas, including: Rob Thurner, Google Squared Lecturer & Founder of Burn The Sky; Judith Lewis, founder of DeCabbit Consultancy; Stephen Kenwright, Director of Search at Branded3, Ben Robinson from RB Capital and Sarah Sangster, Social Media Specialist at Sangster Digital. More information about these and other speakers who will contribute and their respective topics are available to view.
In addition to hosting a collection of expert speakers, this event is also being held in collaboration with the following sponsors:
GoWild Gaming, who recently completed the successful migration of all their brands to their own iGaming platform, have once again collaborated with us to support this important event. Rutger Katz, Head of Acquisitions, said: “We are thrilled to support AffiliateFEST. We have seen the positive impact which previous AffiliateFEST accelerators have had on the bottom line of affiliates who participated and implemented the learnings. As the market becomes more competitive, it is imperative affiliates are on top of their game.”
Robert Miller, Managing Director of Buffalo Partners, said: “We are thrilled to be sponsoring AffiliateFEST for the third consecutive year as we’ve seen the value in how affiliate businesses grow after attendance. Investing in affiliate growth is key for our business and we will continue to support educational events that provide key learnings on the digital landscape around us.”
The fun extends into the evening with a network Cocktail Hour for delegates to continue business conversations and networking.
Affiliates who wish to attend this FREE accelerator must register for a place to avoid disappointment, as seats are limited.
Full details of the event can be found on the official website.

Did you know?
Feature: Fair Bonus System
The bonus terms at SlotsMillion makes the deposit bonus more attractive than the usual ones available at most casinos. Most deposit bonuses lock both your players’ deposit and the bonus to a wagering requirement which makes them unable to withdraw any winnings until the wagering requirements has been met. At SlotsMillion, this is not the case.
As long as players are playing with their own deposit, they can request a withdrawal at any time by canceling the bonus. Since they are always playing with their deposit first, the bonus almost works like a cashback bonus or second shot at that big win.

THE HISTORY OF ONLINE GAMBLING – INFOGRAPHIC
Since the beginning of time people have been engaging in one form of gambling or another. From our days all the way to ancient Egyptians, Greeks or Chinese, where money’s been available, gambling was right there too! It’s well known nowadays that card games and paper money originated from ancient China. Historians believe that earliest form of cards first appeared in the old continent in the 14th century, probably via North Africa, and the first land-based casino appeared in 17th century in Italy thus providing a controlled gambling environment.
Online gambling or it’s first form to hit the internet was online casinos. In the same year that the company called Microgaming was established, 1994, the island’s Antigua and Barbuda passed their Free Trade and Process act. Antigua became the first country which made it possible for operators to apply for licenses. Microgaming claims to have been the very first company to provide a fully functional real money online casino: The Gaming Club.
Online gambling, with it’s humble beginnings in the Caribbean, has already transformed into a billion dollar industry. In the year 2010, online gambling generated revenues in excess of $29 billion. In 2017, online gambling is expected to generate $50.65 billion dollars and the experts predict that this will jump to $56.05 billion in 2018. Just so that you really understand and for comparison’s sake, Disney generated $52.47 billion in 2016.
The history of online gambling is very captivating, full of all sorts of twists and turns.
Have a look at the infographic below, from Casinosonline.com which highlights this billion-dollar industry from its humble beginning to its current state.
