Karamba Partners is the official casino affiliate program for a number of NeoGames casinos, including Hopa Casino, Casino Rijk, and GrandGames Casino. These brands focus primarily on slots and scratch games from NeoGames, as well as a selection of NeoGames and Amaya titles. They can be marketed to players in most regions except the US and a few others. The program does have a minimum activity clause. Karamba Partners was created in 2005 and is under the jurisdiction of Malta.
The majority of Karamba Partners’ affiliates are paid through a revenue sharing scheme. This plan compensates affiliates based on the net revenue of their referred players, which Karamba Partners calculates as gross gaming earnings minus bonuses and promotional amounts, processing charges, chargebacks, and uncollectible debts.
The commission rate paid to an affiliate each month is dependent on the number of first-time depositors they bring in within that month. More monthly conversions result in a greater commission percentage, as determined by Karamba Partners’ tiers.
Affiliates should note that these tiers are only for active affiliates. The minimum activity clause stipulates that affiliates who do not bring in any new players within a rolling 3-month period will be dropped to a base rate. However, the affiliate will be placed back on the standard rate scheme once they refer another player.
Unfortunately for affiliates, Karamba Partners engages in the practice of negative carryover. This means that losing months can have a lasting impact on earnings. However, earnings are tracked separately across brands within a month (i.e. no bundling).
Karamba Partners does offer CPA (cost-per-acquisition) agreements, which pay one-time fees for each new depositor instead of lifetime commissions. Hybrid plans are also available that combine CPA and revenue sharing commissions. These plans must be negotiated with an affiliate manager, and not all affiliates will qualify for one.
Affiliates of Karamba Partners can refer others to the program in exchange for a secondary commission. Karamba Partners pays referrers a monthly fee calculated as a flat percentage of all direct sub-affiliates’ commissionable earnings.
Karamba Partners pays affiliates monthly, although payouts may take up to 30 days from the end of the preceding month. An affiliate must accrue at least €100 (or currency equivalent) in earnings before they will be eligible for a payout. Those who do not reach this level will have their earnings rolled over until the requirement is met.
Karamba Partners offers payment in a number of different currencies: EUR, USD, AUD, GBP, CAD, DKK, and SEK. Affiliates can elect to receive their payments via bank wire transfer, Click2Pay, Neteller, or Skrill.
Karamba Partners uses a proprietary software solution for its affiliate business. This platform can be used by affiliates to track their activity and get the latest creative materials for their websites, although it may lack some of the more advanced reporting features found in more popular third-party solutions.
