The GPWA is made possible through the financial support of sponsor affiliate programs. As the only professional association dedicated to gambling affiliates we offer a wide variety of services to our members free of charge. The funding provided by sponsors in exchange for platinum, gold and silver promotion packages enables us to provide these services.
Successful affiliates know that good working relationships are an important key to success. Our sponsor affiliate programs know that too. They agree to follow the GPWA Sponsor Code of Conduct. Equally important, each sponsor agrees to participate in a private forum we establish especially for them to facilitate open and honest communication between GPWA members and their affiliate program representatives.
If you would like to search for affiliate programs by characteristics of the gaming sites they represent, use our affiliate program gaming site search.
Betting exchanges allow players to place wagers where the odds are set by fellow players, rather than the bookie or sportsbook. This form of wagering is popular because players can sometimes find odds that are more favorable than those at sportsbooks, because punters are generally betting against each other.
Binary options providers give people a simple vehicle to bet on financial markets. People bet on whether an asset -- stock, currency, index, etc. -- will finish higher or lower than a certain price. The market for each individual bet stays open for a fixed period of time. The options platform provider takes commission out of the winnings, or keeps most of the losing bet.
Online bingo rooms generated €1.3 billion in gross gaming revenue globally (excluding the U.S.) in 2011, according to H2 Gambling Capital. And globally, bingo players are getting younger. Studies show that about 25 percent of online bingo players are under the age of 35. While bingo players might play the occasional slot game on the side, they typically don't play poker or other casino table games, making bingo players a very distinct market in the online gambling industry. The affiliate programs listed here can help affiliates tap into this market.
With traditionally high player values and real growth opportunities, marketing online casinos is a popular choice for affiliates. Between popular slots games, video poker and table games, the online casinos these affiliate programs represent have something for every player. And many of them boast massive jackpots to pique player interest. Most affiliate programs are willing to work with webmasters on creating bonuses or other special promotions for their players.
eWallets are a popular method that people use to deposit and withdraw money from online gaming sites. They are often used to pay for other e-commerce transactions as well. Many players prefer eWallets to traditional payment methods like credit cards and checks. Affiliates can earn revenue from eWallet affiliate programs by referring customers to them. Commission models may vary from program to program.
Fantasy sports are more than just a game. They're big business. In the U.S. alone, fantasy sports is an $800 million industry with more than 27 million participants. Some countries (like the United States) do not consider fantasy sports gambling, making it easier for players to deposit and withdraw money. The programs here give affiliates a chance to access this huge market.
The practice of buying and selling foreign currency by individual investors is growing daily. And as it does, the numbers of sites that offer access to Forex trading markets are growing as well. These sites give beginners and experts alike a chance to earn money trading foreign currencies. The programs here work with brands that give individual investors access to these regulated markets.
Lotteries are one of the most popular forms of gambling, with governments across world offering them. Because of their massive jackpots and low barriers to entry, lotteries are real easy games for players to get involved with. It's one of the reasons that they're so popular. Some affiliate programs are marketing arms of fully licensed and accredited land-based lotteries, which gives both players and affiliates a solid avenue of recourse on payment issues.
Online poker rooms generated €2.9 billion in gross gaming revenue globally (excluding the U.S.) in 2011, according to H2 Gambling Capital. But the nature of the market is changing rapidly as more countries, like Italy and France, license and regulate the game. Both countries also prevent their residents from playing against people in other countries. But even with the new regulations, competition for players remains fierce. The brands that these affiliate programs represent generally offer games that appeal to beginners and experts alike. This is also a diverse group of affiliate programs, with some offering rakeback and many targeting specific niches.
Rummy Games sites offer multiple variations of the traditional rummy game. These games generally share the basic rummy concepts of sets and runs, but have distinct variations in game play and scoring. Rummy games require a fair amount of skill to play successfully, though whether it is considered a skill game from a legal standpoint depends on the jurisdiction.
Games of skill have a rich history on the Internet. Games like backgammon, snooker, darts, hearts, rummy and dominoes have been played on the Web almost since its inception, and on computers even longer. Skill games don't generate the average player values that online casinos do, but have the advantage of being considered legal in many jurisdictions where online gambling might not be.
Social gaming is a rapidly growing games sector that mixes game play with social interactivity. The games, typically found on social networking platforms like Facebook, often offer game play that features the unlocking of new levels or the ability to share elements of play with friends or benefit from sharing with friends. Markets where items can be purchased, either within the game or in a secondary market, are another common feature of social gaming.
The sportsbook business is a multi-billion dollar industry. One study estimates that more than half a billion dollars – from around the world --- are bet each weekend on English Premier League games alone. The affiliate programs listed here help webmasters reach punters who want to bet on sports from the comfort of their own homes. Betting on sports is licensed and regulated in the U.K. and many other European countries.
Spread betting is a much more volatile variation of binary options trading. Like binary options trading, you are betting on the behavior of financial assets -- stock, currency, index, etc. -- without actually purchasing them. But instead of just "winning your bet" when you're correct, spread betting allows you to win significantly more. Essentially how much you win by -- or how much you lose by -- determines your profit and loss levels. So if you bet on a stock rising, and it rises by 10 points, you'll win more money than if it just rises by 5 points. On the flip side, you'll lose more money if it drops by 10 points than if it drops five points. Your wins and losses also get a multiplier depending on your stakes.
