Gamesys Affiliates (formaly known as Market-Ace) is the official casino affiliate program of Gamesys Group i-gaming enterprises. These include the online casino brands Virgin Games, Jackpotjoy Casino, Starspins Casino, and Caesars Casino. These brands are primarily targeted to players in the UK and a select few other regions, and feature leading slots and other casino games on both desktop computers and mobile devices. Gamesys Affiliates is licensed by the government of the United Kingdom.
Most partners of Gamesys Affiliates receive commissions based on a revenue share scheme. Under this plan, affiliates earn commissions based on the net revenue that their referred players bring to the casino. This is equal to gross gaming revenue less finance fees, license fees, allocations to charitable donations, operating costs, and fraudulent payments.
The exact percentage of this net revenue that the affiliate receives varies from casino brand to casino brand. However, these earnings are not aggregated, ensuring maximum possible commissions (i.e. no bundling). There is also no negative carryover to worry about since any negative balances are zeroed out at the start of each month.
Affiliates who qualify can opt for one of two other commission plans. The first is CPA, or cost-per-acquisition, which pays affiliates a one-time fee for all qualified depositing players. The second is a hybrid scheme that combines both CPA and revenue sharing plans.
Affiliates can increase their earnings through Gamesys Affiliates with their 2-tier sub-affiliation program. This referral scheme enables affiliates to get a flat fee equal to a share of their direct sub-affiliates’ earnings.
Gamesys Affiliates pays all affiliates within 16 days of the end of each month. The minimum earnings threshold required to receive payment varies based on the method chosen. Those who wish to receive their commissions by Neteller, UK bank transfer, or Skrill must only earn £25; those who prefer (or must use) bank wire transfer must accrue £200. No admin fee is deducted from these commissions.
Unfortunately, the only currency offered by Gamesys Affiliates for commission payments is British pounds sterling (GBP). Affiliates who use a different currency will need to have their payment processor or bank convert it, which typically requires extra fees.
Gamesys Affiliates uses Income Access for all affiliate operations. This third-party software solution is one of the most widely used in the affiliate business, providing partners with 24/7 access to their dashboard, custom reporting capabilities, and simple commission payments.
