bwin.party Partners is the official casino affiliate program of the bwin.party group, a longstanding group of multi-platform casinos that include Gamebookers Casino, bwin Casino, and Party Casino. These brands offer numerous slots, live table games, and more from their own software plus Electracade, 1x2Gaming, Playtech, and more. The program does have several inactivity clauses that can result in early termination. bwin.party Partners is registered under the government of Gibraltar.
All members of bwin.party Partners are enrolled in a revenue sharing plan by default. Affiliates receive commissions on the basis of referred net revenue. bwin.party Partners calculates this individually for each of its products, but in general it is simply gross gaming revenue minus operating expenses, taxes, and other third-party costs. The exact commission percentage is determined monthly based on the number of new depositing players brought into the group’s sites.
Typically, there is no negative carryover in the bwin.party Partners plan, but they do have terms that permit them to carry over negative balances produced frequently from bonuses or other expenses. Furthermore, earnings are bundled across all of bwin.party Partners’ brands, which can reduce profitability.
There are a number of inactivity clauses in the bwin.party Partners contract. Affiliates who fail to bring in any new depositing players within 180 days will have their commission rates reduced to a base amount until more players, or simply close the affiliate account and freeze all accrued commissions. Additionally, any players who remain inactive for a full year will be de-tagged from the affiliate’s account.
bwin.party Partners also offers a CPA (cost-per-acquisition) plan to experience affiliates who request it. Commissions earned through CPA are based on the number of new depositing players, and all commissions are paid only once per player. Affiliates can contact their affiliate manager for further details.
Members of bwin.party Partners can increase their earnings through a 2-tier sub-affiliation scheme. This pays all master affiliates a fee equal to a flat percentage of all sub-affiliate earnings. However, these commissions are only good for 2 consecutive years for each sub-affiliate.
bwin.party Partners consistently pays its partners within the first 10 days of each month. They do not state any general minimum withdrawal threshold, so affiliates should check their accounts to see what they need to earn to cash out their earnings. Those who do not reach their threshold will have their earnings rolled over as long as they are not inactive for 180 days.
Members of bwin.party Partners can opt to receive their payments through numerous methods, including Neteller, Skrill, Visa, WebMoney, Solo, and electronic transfer. Payments are sent in US dollars only, so affiliates who use another currency will need to consider any applicable foreign exchange costs.
bwin.party Partners uses a proprietary software platform for all affiliate business. It offers a good variety of reporting and tracking features and has a smooth interface to help affilates see how they are doing at a glance. Affiliates can also use the platform to get the latest creative materials.
