Affiliate programme, the first US-State operated online lottery to be propelled by the Income Access platform.

Montreal, QC. 8th January 2018 – Michigan Lottery, the company that offers numerous on-line and scratch-off games and prize prospects to the players has introduced an affiliate programme with Income Access, Paysafe’s marketing technology and services provider. The affiliate programme is a pioneer among US lotteries, and will be equipped through Income Access’ tracking and analytics platform.

Michigan Lottery holds the privilege of being a robust and well-flourished brand. Since 1972, the Michigan Lottery has donated over $21 billion to foster public education, and more than $900 million in the fiscal year, 2017. As a state agency with the potential to generate nearly $3 billion a year, they are well equipped to extend robust CRM and player retention programmes.

In 2014, Michigan Lottery enlarged their traditional sales to online game offerings. Every week the players get to win millions of dollars online in prizes, playing both draw and instant win games including Mega Millions, Powerball, Instant Keno, Cashword, and Queen of Diamonds to name a few. The iLottery net gaming revenue currently adds up to approximately $7 million through monthly games, Michigan Lottery thus claims to be the swiftest growing iLottery programme of its kind in the US.

 

The Income Access platform integration enables the members of the Michigan Lottery affiliate programme to advance one of the US’ most popular and prosperous iLottery brands. With the privilege of being a four times winner of the eGaming Review’s B2B ‘Affiliate Software’ award since 2013, the Income Access platform features futuristic ad targeting potentials based on geo-location and other criteria.

Through the incorporation of highly committed affiliate managerial support, the successful endorsement and promotion of the brand became very viable; with an in-house creative team charged with maintaining a consistent flow of new and custom assets, strong player incentives and affiliates with key resources aiding the promotion. One such instance being a 50% bonus credit on first-time deposits up to $100 free, which would reward a $200 purchase with a $100 bonus.

The affiliate programme will cap at 20% revenue share, based on 20+ player acquisitions per month.

Amanda Perkins, the Digital Marketing & Analytics Manager at Michigan Lottery, said: “Michigan Lottery is the most successful online lottery program in the United States and growth potential is significant with only about 8% of eligible players in Michigan registered to play online. We have partnered with Income Access to launch our affiliate programme given the company’s excellent reputation in the affiliate marketing space. We expect this affiliate programme to open a new pathway to acquiring players and play a key role in the Lottery’s overall player acquisition strategy.”

Lorenzo Pellegrino, CEO of the Income Access and Digital Wallets at Paysafe, added: “Michigan Lottery is an important partnership as we look to extend our influence in the iLottery vertical beyond Europe. The brand’s stature and long history of success provide a unique opening for affiliates looking to broaden their player base.”
