Features of affiliate programs in the gambling vertical
An affiliate program is a format of collaboration between an advertiser who delivers a product or service and affiliates who promote it. In the case of a gambling niche, this type of relationship is established between an online casino and/or a betting shop and affiliates represented by webmasters, arbitrage specialists, and blog owners.
Cooperation with the affiliate program is conditionally implemented in several stages:
Affiliates register in the casino affiliate program, choose an offer for promotion, receive a unique affiliate link and promotional materials. They also have access to tools (trackers, applications, etc.).
Affiliates place a link and casino advertisement in various sources, for example, on their own website or blog, on theme forums, integrate it into a YouTube video or Instagram story, etc.
Using an affiliate link, users go to a gambling or betting platform and make a necessary targeted action, for example, register or make a deposit.
The casino pays affiliates their earnings based on the supported payout model.
In affiliate programs that provide gambling offers for promotion, payments are generally made under the following models:
- Revenue Share (RevShare) – affiliates receive a percentage of the amount lost by the attracted players. Most often, this figure ranges from 25 to 60%. There are dynamic and fixed profit. In the first case, the interest rate depends on the amount of attracted traffic: the larger the volume, the higher the payout. With a fixed amount, the affiliate receives the same percentage regardless of the number of attracted users.
- CPA is a payment model where a one-time amount is paid for each targeted action performed. The reward can be up to $200 +.
- Hybrid is a mixed model in which the affiliate is paid a fixed amount per player attracted and a percentage of the amount they lost.
