Betting Partners is the casino affiliate program responsible for promoting Bodog Casino and its affiliated sites, including Bovada Casino and Slots.Lv Casino. The brand has become one of the most widely known in the i-gaming industry with a long history extending back to 1994. Its brands offer leading slots and casino games from Bodog Custom, Betsoft, and Real Time Gaming. Affiliates should be aware of the program’s minimum activity clause. Betting Partners is under the jurisdiction of Antigua and Barbuda.
Unless approved for an alternative payment scheme, affiliates of Betting Partners earn commissions through a revenue sharing plan. This structure pays affiliates based on the amount of net revenue that they generate for Betting Partners brands, which is gaming profits minus chargebacks, bonuses, fees, taxes, and processing costs.
The exact commission schedule varies from brand to brand, but all use revenue-based tiers to determine the commission percentage. Some brands are tracked separately, but a few are bundled together. There is also negative carryover for all brands, which means that net losses incurred from referred players will not be zeroed out at the start of a new month.
The Betting Partners affiliate contract also contains a minimum activity clause. In order to be paid commissions at the agreed upon rate, affiliates must have at least 3 new depositing players within a six-month rolling period. Affiliates who do not meet this requirement will revert to a much lower flat commission rate, but only until they reach the required threshold again.
Affiliates can inquire about an alternative CPA (cost-per-acquisition) payment scheme. Those who are approved for this plan are paid a one-time fee instead of lifetime commissions on each player’s activity. The details of any CPA agreement must be negotiated with a Betting Partners affiliate manager, and not all affiliates are approved.
Betting Partners does not currently feature a sub-affiliation plan. This means that its partners cannot refer others to the program in exchange for a secondary commission at this time.
Members of Betting Partners who qualify for payment will receive their commissions within the first 15 days of each month. The minimum required earnings to be paid depends on the method an affiliate chooses. Those using payment to credit cards, courier check, or player account transfers must accrue at least $200. The bank wire transfer threshold is a much higher $1,500.
No admin fees are deducted from commissions. However, affiliates should be aware that payments are made in US dollars only. Those who do not use the dollar will need to consider whether they will need to pay any foreign exchange fees.
Betting Partners uses the highly reliable MyAffiliates platform as its primary interface with affiliates. This software helps members of the program track their progress over time, see real-time statistics to make informed decisions, and monitor their accrued commissions without having to consult with an affiliate manager.
