Tal Itzhak Ron (Chairman & CEO at Tal Ron, Drihem & Co., Law Firm), along with a panel of industry experts will dissect the topic and answer a burning question of the industry, the Affiliate-Operator relations can be strained at times, so what should each party look for in a partnership in order to make sure it runs smoothly?

The new solution for letting customers sign up on the spot directly on affiliate sites without any redirects, Regily Remote, was built to help accelerate affiliate traffic conversion for online brands. After signing up, the user proceeds to the brand already logged in and ready to use the service.

iGaming brand Wunderino is using the solution from Regily with its Brand Protection partner Internet Vikings.

Brands and affiliates are benefiting greatly from Remote, as it saves them time, provides them with a secure framework that is adapted for new legislation, keeps them ahead of the competition, reduces the work carried out between them and affiliates, and increases their conversion rates in different markets.

For the end-user, it eliminates redirects and extra clicks making it much faster to complete the registration. It enhances their experience and reduces drop-offs significantly. It is a win-win situation for all involved parties.

Operators can enable Regily Remote easily as no further integration is required from affiliate sites. Regily’s framework stores no data, even when using Remote, which lets the operator benefit from the technology while maintaining full ownership and control over the user data.

Rickard Vikström, Chief Commercial Officer and Founder of Internet Vikings said: “The innovation of this product, Regily Remote, is like no other on the market. It significantly improves conversion by eliminating redirects. This tool will greatly complement the Brand Protection strategy that we deploy together with Wunderino”.

Esports Entertainment Group, Inc., a licensed online gambling company with a focus on esports wagering and 18+ gaming, has officially begun onboarding hundreds of affiliate marketing partners to its newly relaunched VIE.gg wagering platform. The affiliate partners include esports teams, influencers, streamers, leagues, and super affiliates from Asia, Europe, North America and South America. The Company believes its Affiliate Marketing program will play a significant role in its organic growth.

MALTA LICENSE AND NASDAQ LISTING ARE MAJOR ATTRACTIONS FOR AFFILIATES

The Company’s recently announced Malta gaming license and recent listing on NASDAQ are cited by our affiliate partners as very strong factors in their decision to partner with VIE.gg.  Though the Company first began registering a small sample of interested affiliates in 2018, these two factors have generated noticeable enthusiasm from existing and new affiliates who take great comfort in knowing the Company is working within one of the strictest licensing and listing regulatory environments, as compared to private operators.

Moreover, the Company’s financial strength as a result of its successful $8.4million public offering now provides VIE.gg with the resources necessary to support and grow its soon to be large affiliate partner base.

“Our Affiliate partners are a very important part of our organic growth strategy in 2020 and beyond, so it has been a high priority of ours to provide the comfort and security they need to partner with us and drive their valuable global audiences to VIE.gg,” said Grant Johnson, CEO of Esports Entertainment Group.  “We believe that with the combination of our NASDAQ listing, capital raise and Malta license over the last 30 days we have a formidable competitive advantage to attract, support and grow with affiliate partners that we believe will lead to rapid organic growth for our newly relaunched VIE.gg esports wagering platform.”

Esports Entertainment offers bet exchange style wagering on esports events in a licensed, regulated and secure platform to the global esports audience at VIE.gg. Utilizing this peer-to-peer wagering system, the Company offers real-money, exchange-style wagering on esports events worldwide in a secure environment. The VIE.gg platform provides customers the ability to match bets against one another with Esports Entertainment taking a small commission on the winnings.

“Affiliate marketing is a proven growth model for online gambling,” commented Christian Heinrichs, Esports Affiliate Manager. “Our affiliate streamers broadcast to massive, global esports audiences. Combined with the credibility and support of the many teams and leagues we continue to sign as affiliates, we believe our VIE.gg platform can quickly become the industry standard for safe, secure esports betting.”
