Lion Slots Affiliates is the official casino affiliate program for Lion Slots Casino, a Rival online casino founded in 2008 that features games in both downloadable and instant-play formats. Lion Slots Affiliates is licensed by the jurisdiction of Curacao and it is not able market to players in the US and a number of other countries due to rules and regulations.
Lion Slots Affiliates offers a single commission plan. This is the default model and all new affiliates are subject to it automatically. Therefore, all partners receive commission according to a standard revenue share model. According to this scheme, affiliates get a percentage of the net revenue their referred players generate for the casino. The percentage an affiliate earns is fixed and does not fluctuate.
Under this plan, there is no negative carryover policy and net losses in one month will not affect the affiliates’ earnings in the following months, since the account balance is cleared at the beginning of a month. Additionally, there is no bundling, as this affiliate program markets a single brand.
There are no alternative commission models such as CPA (Cost per Acquisition) or hybrid deals, at the moment of writing.
Affiliates can earn more income from Lion Slots Affiliates through its sub-affiliation plan. Under this scheme, partners simply refer other affiliates to this program and get paid a fee equal to a portion of their sub-affiliates’ monthly commissions.
Lion Slots Affiliates requires its partners to generate a $1000 minimum threshold before becoming eligible for payments via bank wire. This is much higher than the threshold of most programs. If an affiliate does not meet the minimum threshold in a month, his or her earnings will get rolled over into following months until the limit is reached. Affiliates also experience very slow payments, 20-30 days after the month has ended.
Unfortunately, Lion Slots Affiliates only makes payments in USD via Neteller, Skrill, Player Account, and EcoPayz, Affiliates who do not use US dollars will need to consider foreign exchange risk and currency conversion costs at their chosen payment processor or bank.
Lion Slots Affiliates uses Rival’s in-house software for all affiliate operations. This software is not as robust as some third-party offerings, but does offer most affiliates all the information they need, as well as simple commission payment processing.
