Cloudbet Affiliates is the casino affiliate program responsible for promoting Cloudbet Casino, a bitcoin casino brand. The site provides players with 3D video slots and other Betsoft casino games and other services. The brand was created in 2013 and markets to players worldwide with no specific exclusions. Since the affiliate program uses only bitcoin, there are very few overhead costs involved. However, this program is unregulated, which gives affiliates no legal recourse should something go wrong.
Members of Cloudbet Affiliates can choose from two commission plans. The first, which all new affiliates are placed under, is a unique hybrid plan. Those who select this scheme get a flat percentage of revenue earned from casino and poker players, but a turnover-based commission scheme for sportsbook players.
The second is a pure revenue sharing scheme. Those who choose this plan are paid a flat percentage of all revenue that their referred players bring into any Cloudbet Casino products. Affiliates are only eligible for this plan after 3 months.
Affiliates under both plans have very few deductions to worry about due to the nature of bitcoin gambling. The only things that can potentially be taken out of commissions are licensing fees, returned stakes, and bonuses.
Unfortunately for affiliates, this program does have negative carryover. This can result in a bad month turning into several months of no earnings. There is no bundling, however.
Due to the high risk of potential abuse, Cloudbet Affiliates does not offer its members a sub-affiliation program.
Partners of Cloudbet Affiliates can count on being paid monthly, although the exact date is not specified and may vary. Payments are submitted in bitcoin only, either to a player account address or a personal address owned by the affiliate. No admin fee is charged to any commission.
Cloudbet Affiliates uses a proprietary software platform. Although it is unique to this brand, the software does provide enough capabilities for most affiliates, including player reports and several website tracking features.
