Casino Affiliate Now is a casino affiliate program that promotes a family of US-facing Betsoft casinos, all of which also offer live dealer games from Visionary iGaming. Their flagship brands include BetDNA Casino, Moneystorm Casino, Casino Girl, and Always Cool Casino. The brand was founded in 2007 and provides services in English, German, Italian, Spanish, and French. Casino Affiliate Now is under the jurisdiction of Costa Rica.
Casino Affiliate Now pays its partners through a revenue sharing scheme. Commissions are calculated monthly based on the net revenue of an affiliate’s referred players. The affiliate is then paid a flat percentage of that revenue, as per the affiliate agreement. Net revenue is calculated as total deposits minus total payouts, total chargebacks, transaction fees, and jackpot contributions.
Unfortunately, Casino Affiliate Now does carry forward negative balances. This can happen if an affiliate’s players win more than they lose, or if one or more of an affiliate’s players engage in heavy fraud. The affiliate must then earn back that amount before he or she can continue to collect commissions. Earnings are also bundled across Casino Affiliate Now brands, which can reduce commission potential.
Currently, this is the only commission plan offered at Casino Affiliate Now. No alternative deals like CPA or CPM are offered to any affiliate.
Partners of Casino Affiliate Now have the ability to increase their earnings through a 2-tier scheme. They simply place trackers on their website for affiliate sign-ups. Anyone who registers through these will become a sub-affiliate. The master affiliate is then paid a monthly fee by Casino Affiliate Now based on the earnings of all sub-affiliates.
Casino Affiliate Now does not offer automatic commission payments. Affiliates are sent an email with their current commission balance at the start of each month. The affiliate must then reply to that email and state that they want to be paid.
Only affiliates with at least $25 in earnings are eligible for a payout. Affiliates who do not reach this threshold within a month will have their commissions carried forward until they do reach the threshold. However, affiliates should note that 10% admin fees are deducted from the commission balance each month.
Casino Affiliate Now currently offers payments via Visa, MasterCard, Entropay, money order, Neteller, and Skrill. Affiliates with exceptionally high balances may be more limited in their choices and may need to request bank wire transfer, which can incur a fee. Payments are only sent in USD regardless of the method chosen, so certain affiliates may need to consider foreign exchange rates and fees.
Casino Affiliate Now uses their proprietary software to help affiliates monitor their business. This is a fairly advanced platform offering up-to-date player activity reports on virtually all key metrics, although it does lack the streamlined commissions offered by more popular solutions.
