Operator offering 10,000 free entries to its Classic Pools game with a jackpot prize of £3million up for grabs in Michael Owen-backed campaign
The Pools has launched a major promotion for affiliates to use to drive new player acquisition as part of celebrations for the gambling brand’s centenary season.
The Pools is preparing to celebrate its 100th season, billed as ‘it’s best season ever’ in the top flight of football betting, by giving away 10,000 free games.
Players can test their knowledge of team form and have the chance to join the elite club of Pools millionaires – for free!
If they use their skill and judgement to correctly predict score draws, they could walk away with one of The Football Pools’ big cash prizes – including a top weekly jackpot of £3million.
With the 2022/23 season marking the start of a historic century, The Football Pools has made a new signing to help kick off its celebrations.
Former England, Liverpool and Manchester United star Michael Owen will be the face of the new season Classic Pools coupon 10,000 free game giveaway.
Affiliates will be able to use a selection of special assets to promote the campaign and push new players to The Pools.
The record-breaking striker turned pundit knows all about the power of 10 – he wore the lucky number throughout his career at Anfield, netting 158 goals for the Reds, and when he made a decade of goalscoring appearances for England.
He’s also a keen supporter of The Football Pools, as one of three new members on the Pools Panel.
Michael said he was looking forward to helping fans use their passion for the game to become Pools prize winners.
“The Football Pools is an institution in this country that generations have grown up with,” Owen said.
“It’s an incredible achievement to be reaching its 100th season and by giving away these 10,000 games, hopefully it will be an opportunity for lots of people to play for free and make it a really memorable one. We might even get players who win life-changing prizes which would be amazing.”
Derek Lloyd, CEO of The Football Pools & The Pools, said the 10,000 free game giveaway was a way to share the anniversary celebrations with players who’ve been loyal over the years, and introduce new ones to a British tradition.
“We know how much people love the Pools, matchdays wouldn’t be the same without it for lots of players and families, so as we go into what is a landmark year for our company we want them to have this game on us – and we hope to be handing over some of our famous Pools cheques to them soon!”
Andrea Foley, Partnership Marketing Manager at The Pools, added: “We know that promotions are a part of new player sign-ups, and we want our affiliate partners to be able to use the offers responsibly to engage their audiences and introduce them to The Pools.
“This is one of our biggest promotions yet, with 10,000 free games available and a prize pot to play for including the £3m jackpot. This, combined with Michael Owen fronting the campaign, should really help affiliates generate significant interest around The Pools and the start of the new football season.”

Catena Media Expands Strategic Review to its European Business
Catena Media has announced that it is expanding the strategic review it initiated on 20 May 2022 to its entire European online sports betting and casino affiliation business.
The European business, consisting of online sports betting and casino affiliation assets acquired prior to mid-2018, has faced challenges in recent years. These relate to regulatory changes in markets including the UK, Sweden, Germany and, most recently, the Netherlands. They also reflect general market developments in Europe, which have affected casino operations in particular.
The expanded strategic review seeks to identify efficiencies in Catena Media’s European operations and to increase the group’s focus on higher margin opportunities within the region. The intention is to free up resources to capitalise on growth opportunities in the fast-growing North American business and in the Asia-Pacific and Latin American regions, thus creating maximum value for the company and its shareholders going forward.
The group aims to pursue annualised savings of at least EUR 5m in operational and capital expenditures. Following applicable laws and relevant regulations, Catena Media will start reviewing its European product portfolio and cost base and enter into a formal consultation process for potentially affected UK- and Malta-based roles. The company intends to provide an update on the outcome before the end of September.
GiG signs extended partnership for Comply with European operator Novibet
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
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.
SOFTSWISS is an international iGaming company supplying certified software solutions for managing gambling operations. The expert team, which counts 1,300+ employees, is based in Malta, Poland, Georgia, and Belarus. SOFTSWISS holds a number of gaming licences and provides one-stop-shop iGaming software solutions. The company has a vast product portfolio, including the Online Casino Platform, the Game Aggregator with thousands of casino games, the Affilka affiliate platform, the Sportsbook Platform and the Jackpot Aggregator. In 2013 SOFTSWISS was the first in the world to introduce a bitcoin-optimised online casino solution.
