There are very few verticals on the Internet that are quite as profitable as online gambling. The trouble is figuring out exactly how you can maximize your efforts so that you can rake in the most amount of money possible. After all, there are so many affiliate programs out there that tackle this segment.
Over the course of today’s review, we’ll take a look at one such program: AceRevenue. Rather than focus their energies on just one online casino, they’ve selected a small batch of casinos so you can find the one that works best for you.
Betting on Your Success
So, how can you make money with this casino affiliate program? Well, there are two basic structures in place, both of which could prove quite lucrative. First, they’ve announced a $150 CPA. That’s a fantastic payout, considering the amount of money you get with just approved (depositing) referral.
To make even more money, though, you may be more interested in the revenue share. Right now, AceRevenue is giving you the opportunity to earn up to a 45% revenue share for the first 90 days. This is higher than their normal commission structure, which starts at a 35% revenue share.
How this works is based not on the deposits your referrals make to their accounts, but rather how much profit the casino earns each month. Yes, you are capitalizing on your referral’s losses. Let’s say that Joe Gambler loses $1000 in blackjack one month; you would then earn $450. If Joe Gambler wins $500 that month, though, the reverse becomes true. Thankfully, those “negative balances” are reset to zero each month.
Also, since these wins and losses are taken as an aggregate and casinos always win on average, you can always stand to profit so long as you have enough depositors under your referral umbrella.
What Casinos Are Available?
In the screenshot above, you can get a glimpse at the main dashboard of the AceRevenue affiliate program. On that main page, you can get information regarding earnings, signups, attempted deposits, and so forth. They’re shown in summary form, as well as being broken down by casino.
The four casinos promoted by this affiliate program are Silver Oak Casino, Planet 7 Casino, Royal Ace Casino, and Slot Madness Online Casino. You may or may not already be familiar with these names; that’s not the issue. The hurdle will be for you to get enough people to sign up (and spend money) at these establishments.
Join Me for a Game, Won’t You?
So, how can you go about promoting these casinos and enticing new users to register for accounts? AceRevenue has you covered there too, offering literally hundreds of ad creatives for each of the four partner casinos.
Here is an example of a 720×300 banner ad for Royal Ace Casino. When you go through the available marketing tools (your affiliate account has to be fully approved and in good standing before you are able to view these creatives), you’ll see the description of the creative, as well as the related HTML code snippet that you’ll want to use.
Continuing with the example of Royal Ace Casino, AceRevenue has over 800 marketing tools at your disposal. This includes 83 banners, 18 landing pages, 12 HTML mailers, and 713 game screenshots. I found the interface in the dashboard to a little less than ideal, since it can sometimes to difficult to line up your choice (say 250×250) with the link (which is a count for the number of those creatives available). Better spacing or hyperlinked options (like the text for 250×250) would be helpful.
Another Motivation to Throw the Dice
Money talks and there are very few places that talk quite as much money as casinos. If you’ve been interested in promoting online casinos, AceRevenue is certainly worth checking out. They have generous revenue share programs, plenty of ad creatives, and several payment options.
To help entice you even further, AceRevenue also has a bonus promotion where you can receive any gadget of your choice if you refer 15 new depositing players in your first 30 days. This seems like it has a $400 limit, though the wording isn’t entirely clear.
