“In KaFe Rocks we have an established business being run by an incredibly talented team that owns and operates a network of successful, reputable affiliate assets that will drive growth for the wider group.

“I look forward to working closely with Simon, Feda and the entire KaFe Rocks team of 170 Rocketeers as we further expand Glitnor Group’s Total Addressable Market across the iGaming and Sportsbook value-chain, offering reputable iGaming products and services around the world.”

KaFe Rocks CEO, Simon Pilkington, added: “I’ve been hugely impressed with the leadership team at Glitnor and am massively excited for what the future holds for both KaFe Rocks and the Glitnor Group. 

“Since initial talks began, it’s been clear that both companies share a vision for growth, but that they also value the people driving it and believe in developing a culture where people can thrive.

“The trust that they are showing in us to continue being KaFe Rocks is gratefully received and I’m extremely driven to deliver the results that will help the new group achieve its goals.”

Co-founder and Chairman of KaFe Rocks, Tim Tepass, also added: “At the heart of KaFe Rocks’ success is its people; for us as the owners of KaFe Rocks it’s been imperative that we look to accelerate growth through finding the right people to work with going forwards, and in David and his fantastic team at Glitnor Group we are adamant we’ve found just that. 

In Glitnor Group, we know that the future of KaFe Rocks and its Rocketeers is in great hands, and I look forward to being able to lend our experience and desire to help drive Glitnor forward to a level of growth that we fully believe in and support. 

We have a shared belief in creating products that are for the user, and I know that together, Glitnor will build on its already impressive progress.”

Reading Time: < 1 minute

 

Gaming Innovation Group Inc. (GiG), has extended its agreement with European gaming operator Novibet for its automated affiliate marketing compliance and screening tool, GiG Comply.

GiG’s automated marketing compliance solution enables operators like Novibet to scan web pages for content including links, iGaming code red words and regulatory requirements across multiple jurisdictions. It works by using its rules engine to analyse real snapshots from affiliates’ campaigns and provides operators with the promotional content that is being used in their brands’ promotions.

It is a flexible tool, which allows operators to set-up their own criteria and checklist parameters and can be tailored to cover any market-specific requirements, helping to ensure that operators remain compliant in multiple jurisdictions.

GiG Comply will continue to help Novibet to remain proactive and in control of its marketing compliance by ensuring affiliates are fully aligned with their brand and responsible gaming requirements.

Jonas Warrer, CMO at GiG, said:“ It’s always a proud moment when one of our partners decides to continue to place trust in GiG Comply. Extending the partnership shows that our marketing compliance tool reflects Novibet’s commitment to sustainability and responsible gaming. We look forward to continuing to support them with their affiliate marketing compliance ”

George Gerakanakis, International Affiliate Manager at Novibet, said: “Providing an engaging yet safe and fully compliant gaming experience is the trifecta of our operations, at Novibet. We set the standards of compliance very high and as we move forward, we are confident to have built such a strong partnership with GiG. With the recent extension of our partnership, the relying GiG Comply tool will continue to support the affiliate compliance team across the regulated markets we operate in.”

Affilka by SOFTSWISS implements CPL commission model

Affilka by SOFTSWISS implements CPL commission model
Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

The leading affiliate marketing platform Affilka by SOFTSWISS broadens the capabilities of its commission constructor by adding the CPL commission model. All Affilka’s clients can now take advantage of CPL deals, allowing them to pay a fixed fee for every player registration. 

The new commission plan provides additional opportunities to affiliates and operators. Unlike the CPA commission model, which requires specific actions such as a deposit or further gaming activity from players upon registration, the CPL deal provides payments for all registrations. However, operators can exclude commissions for players who have not been verified, who have another account in the casino, have been disabled, or have set a self-exclusion limit.

Affilka’s commission constructor is a flexible instrument that also allows operators to choose particular countries for CPL deals and apply a different fee rate for different GEOs if needed.

“Implementing CPL deals is another logical step in the development of our product. They offer a wealth of opportunities both for affiliates and operators. They’re great for affiliates who are just starting out in the iGaming vertical or those who want to test out new brand offers and their conversion rates as well as new GEOs. Through CPL deals, iGaming operators can increase brand awareness and attract affiliates from other niches. CPL pays less than CPA, but converts better. To reap most benefits, you need to factor in traffic quality. Luckily, our commission constructor allows you to set various rules for a CPL reward to be triggered,” noted Anastasiya Borovaya, Head of Product at Affilka by SOFTSWISS. 

 

Affilka by SOFTSWISS – a fast-growing affiliate marketing platform – recently passed the milestone of 150 clients in its portfolio. Over the last two months, Affilka has started partnerships with 10 new brands. Expanding its customer base, the product team is constantly improving the functionality and quality of service.

First Look Games, the platform that facilitates the distribution of game information from studios to affiliates for the purpose of game promotion, has added Gaming Realms to its list of prestigious developer partners.

Gaming Realms needs no introduction. It is one of the leading providers of real money games and the proud owner of the unique Slingo IP. Their innovative mobile focused content encompasses in-game player defined choice and strategy to augment a fun & engaging player experience; with top titles including Slingo Lucky Larry’s Lobstermania, Slingo Xxxtreme, and Red Hot Slingo.

The studio will now be able to leverage the power of affiliates for game promotion. By joining First Look Games, it gains access to more than 800 approved publishers with their combined global audience of 20+ million players.

As an FLG partner, Gaming Realms can share information about each of its titles including logos, images and videos of games being played. These are uploaded to the First Look Games library where they can be downloaded individually or in bulk and used for content creation.

Key features include being able to announce any exclusivity arrangements they have on game launches as well as adding and removing jurisdictions for each game.

Other highlights of First Look Games 2.2 include a cutting-edge and free API feature that provides connected access to game and game studio data, presented to affiliates in a structured format. This allows them to automatically create initial reviews of games. All this is handled via an intuitive UI and backed by extensive data reports post-launch.

Tom GalanisManaging Director at First Look Games, said: “Gaming Realms is a studio powerhouse and by becoming an FLG partner it can now use the unrivalled reach of affiliate marketing to drive even more awareness of its games among players and operators.

“With FLG, the power is in the studio’s hands to share the information they want, when they want to share it, and this enables developers to maximise the opportunity presented by working with publishers for game promotion.

“We have more than 800 approved affiliates ready and waiting for information and assets for Gaming Realms’ latest slot launches so they can push their games to millions of players around the world from the get-go.”

Gareth Scott, Commercial Director at Gaming Realms, added: “We have long understood the value of affiliates when it comes to promoting our games but in First Look Games, we have a platform that does much of the heavy lifting for affiliate outreach while also ensuring the accuracy of the content publishers create.

“This is a great partnership for us and one that will allow us to make more players aware of the fun and thrilling experience our games have been designed to deliver from the first spin to the last.”
