Hippodrome Affiliates is the casino affiliate program that markets Hippodrome Online Casino, the official online brand of The Hippodrome Casino in London. The site provides more than 450 games from Microgaming to players in the UK and around the world, except for those in the US. Unfortunately for affiliates, there have been several complaints of the brand falsely accusing partners of intentionally bringing in fraudulent traffic, so prospective affiliates should be cautious. Hippodrome Affiliates is registered by the Malta Gaming Authority.
Members of Hippodrome Affiliates are paid under a revenue sharing plan by default. Under this commission structure, an affiliate receives a portion of the net revenue that their players generate on any of Hippodrome Online Casino’s games. This net revenue figure is calculated by Hippodrome Affiliates monthly, as gross winnings minus fraud, progressive contributions, bonuses, taxes, fees, and operational expenses.
Affiliates can increase their commission rate under the revenue sharing plan by reaching higher revenue tiers. These are fully described in our program details section below.
Affiliates are also welcome to negotiate CPA (cost-per-acquisition) plans. An affiliate who is approved for such a plan will receive a payment each time a new player signs up and deposits an agreed upon amount. These plans are customised to meet the needs of individual affiliates, and thus the details of any agreement will vary.
There is typically no negative carryover under this plan. An exception is made for “high-rollers,” which Hippodrome Affiliates defines as players who take a net win of $10,000 or more in a single month. If an affiliate’s aggregate net balance for a month is -$2,000 or below, that balance will be split across all involved high-rollers and carried forward. This balance can only be recouped from the applicable high-rollers.
There is no bundling since Hippodrome Affiliates only promotes one casino.
Hippodrome Affiliates offers its partners a 2-tier plan for referring others to the program. Affiliates who take advantage of this are paid referral fees based on a flat percentage of all sub-affiliate commissions.
Hippodrome Affiliates processes payments no later than 15 days from the end of each month. In order to qualify for a payment, an affiliate must accrue at least €100 (or currency equivalent) in earnings. Affiliates can choose to be paid via check, EcoPayz, ClickandBuy, Skrill, or to a Hippodrome Online Casino player account. A much higher €700 quota is required for affiliates who select payment by bank wire transfer.
Hippodrome Affiliates is flexible with currencies. They offer payment in euros, US dollars, Canadian dollars, British pounds sterling, Denmark kroner, Swedish kronor, and Norwegian kroner.
Members of Hippodrome Affiliates can track their players and other key statistics through a proprietary software platform. This special section of their website offers regularly updated reports of all kinds, from activity to commissions.
