Both Cottle and Scientific Games’ Matt Davey were shortlisted for Executive of the Year.

Award-winning gambling affiliate launches dedicated .us and .ca domains as part of efforts to deliver a truly localised user experience

Bojoko, the award-winning online gambling affiliate brand, has launched dedicated sites for players in the US and Canada under .us and .ca domains as it continues to work towards its goal of becoming the leading affiliate in North America.

Bojoko.us and Bojoko.ca have been completely redeveloped under the hood so that they provide players with accurate and up to date information about each of the online casino brands available to them in specific states and provinces across the US and Canada.

This allows Bojoko to offer a truly localised product to players across both markets. This includes expertly written content that covers everything players need to know about online casino in the US and Canada, as well as a selection of powerful filtering tools to help them find the best brands.

Bojoko has also rolled out its “double layer” testing and review process for all of the casinos listed in the US and Canada. Each brand is put through its paces by Bojoko’s team of independent testers who sign up, deposit and play at each casino before leaving feedback on the experience they receive.

This is combined with player reviews and ratings so that Bojoko members know exactly what to expect before they sign up and play at any of the casinos it lists.

Joonas Karhu from Bojoko, said: “Canada and the US are two of the largest online casino markets in the world and we wanted to offer players a truly localised version of Bojoko to help them learn more about online casino and find the brands that meet their preferences the most.

“We realised the only way to do this was to launch dedicated domains for the US and Canada. This was a significant undertaking, and certainly from a technical perspective, but our team has overcome all challenges faced and we now offer a superior user experience as a result.

“We have already gained great traction in both the US and Canada and now look forward to driving even more growth with our dedicated domains.”
