Cresus Partners (also known as Colosseum Affiliation) is the marketing arm of Cresus Casino. This casino affiliate program promotes to players around the world (except those in the US and other restricted areas) who enjoy a wide variety of slots and casino games from multiple providers, including NetEnt, NextGen Gaming, and Amaya. Affiliates can promote the brand to both desktop and mobile players. Cresus Partners is registered under the government of Curacao.
Cresus Partners has a more hands-on approach to new affiliate registrations than most programs. All new sign-ups must coordinate with an affiliate manager to decide on their preferred payment plan. Cresus Partners offers virtually every kind of commission, from revenue sharing to CPA (cost-per-acquisition) and CPM (cost-per-impression) and others.
The most common choice is revenue sharing. Those who are enrolled in this plan will be given a commission percentage based on expected website traffic and conversion rates. There is negative carryover, so any negative balances must be earned back before further commissions will be paid. There is no bundling however.
Other choices are also customised based on affiliate preferences, potential profitability for both parties, and expected performance.
Cresus Partners offers all affiliates a 3-tier sub-affiliation scheme. This enables partners to get sub-commissions from their direct referrals as well as from affiliates in the next tier. However, enrollment as a “master affiliate” is only valid for 6 months; Cresus Partners will review all accounts in their 5th month to determine if that affiliate can continue earning sub-commissions.
Cresus Partners typically pays affiliates quickly; the longest an affiliate can expect to wait is 8 days from the end of each month. Affiliates only need to reach a €100 earnings threshold before they can qualify for a payment via Neteller, Skrill, or PayPal. Those who choose bank wire transfer must reach a higher €250 threshold. No admin fee is deducted regardless of method chosen.
All commissions are paid in euros only. Affiliates who need payment in a different currency must use their payment processor’s or bank’s currency conversion service. The affiliate bears any applicable costs incurred.
Cresus Partners is powered by a proprietary software platform. Affiliates can log in at any time to review their key statistics, including player activity and commissions earned. However, the platform may lack some of the more advanced analytics features offered by more prominent third-party solutions.
