Club Tokyo is a brand new casino. What differentiates Club Tokyo from other casinos?
Although Club Tokyo is a new casino, we have a lot to offer. We have considerably fair bonus promotions that compensate every single deposit made. It is basically designed to fit all kinds of players.

Our customer support is another thing to boast about. Players can be assured that they are properly taken care of. Filipinos by nature are caring and politeness is innate in all of us. They truly work with their hearts.

You are located and licensed in the Phillipines. Are the Asian markets your target audience? If so, in which of the national markets in Asia do you see the greatest potential? If you are targeting an audience outside of Asia, who are you targeting?
Yes, we are licensed here in the Philippines. It is also the main reason why we can not market here. But other countries in Asia are not prohibited from playing (except for a few) and we think Japan has the potential to be a big market. We also target European players. As of now, we have quite a number of European players registered with us. They are indeed good at it. Anyone who has the enthusiasm to play online is very much welcome for as long as our basic standards are met. We would love to have sign-ups from all over the world.

What was the driving force behind choosing a Japanese theme?
Ahh, that? Do you find it eye catching, too? Some say, that the casino design brings out a very peculiar aura. It is some kind of a lucky charm. Our web manager is Japanese. He is the one responsible for the theme of our casino. He came up with this very good idea together with the rest of our staff, who are all Japanese too. And it made sense because it’s unique and really stood up among the rest.

What differentiates your affiliate program from others on the market?
Most importantly, Club Tokyo Casino maintains a principle of openness and adheres to collective effort whereby it opens it’s side for any comments and or suggestions that may help both the casino and the affiliates to achieve what they intend to. In this way, both the affiliates and the casino can feel the sense of ownership of the program which will later lead to a harmonious give and take relationship. The results will benefit both parties.

What have affiliates liked most about working with your program so far?
The sense of ownership. We treat our affiliates as real partners! Affiliates feel free to offer suggestions and convey comments. The affiliate program is not rigid. It always opens itself to the possibilities of learning from the process thereby adhering to a flexible yet systematic program. It goes beyond margins. It explores possibilities. Most importantly, words are true. It does what it promises. The program promises up to 40% profits, so it gives! And it pays on time and in full!

How do you help affiliates position themselves to maximize profitability?
Club Tokyo Casino Affiliate Program offers equal opportunity to both small and large webmasters with a minimal effort exerted. You’ll start earning your revenue from the time the player clicks our site banner from your tracker, up to the player’s decision to deposit. Your revenue increases as your players’ wagering increases. You’ll earn from players’ losses and yet, you won’t be asked to pay us back in case your players’ win. In addition, you still have the opportunity to earn from webmasters who sign-up under your account. We have various commissions and bonuses under our 10-Tier Program. Plus, you can keep track of how much money you are earning via our specially-designed stats page. Indeed, being our affiliate would mean accepting an opportunity of unlimited earning potentials!

The Club Tokyo Affiliate Program offers a range of rev share, from 20% to 40%. What qualifies you for the 40% rev share? What's the default arrangement for an affiliate? If you start at a lower rev share, what steps do you have to take to get to the 40% mark?
The more game traffic you bring the more profit you earn! You will continue earning for as long as your player’s account remains active. The good thing is, once your player has signed up, he or she is always your player and you will continue earning while your player continues to wager. To qualify for the 40% mark, you should reach the maximum referral of players. Should you start your transactions from lower revenue, you may continue your referral. The default revenue share for an affiliate is 20%.

What are your three keys to success for an affiliate?
  • Genuine partnership
  • Catchy advertisements
  • Networking and Link system

What songs are currently on your iPod (or mp3 player)?
The ones I have right now are songs from Japan. Like Hanamizuki, Hitori, Yuki no Hana, Endless Story and a lot more. But I also have on my list English songs by Celine Dion and new Tagalog songs.

What’s your favorite movie and why?
I don’t really go for favorite when it comes to movies but the ones I like best are the movies acted by Julia Roberts. I go for love stories – they are heart melting.

What one book should everyone read?
I may sound dull to others to say this, but I would really recommend The Bible, because it will give you a day-to-day guide on not doing wrong even if tempted to do so. And it is also a way of understanding other people more. Even if you are not a Christian, reading it would tell matters about Christians and that would help support an idea of accepting other people regardless of the religion.

What was your favorite subject in school? And why was it your favorite subject?
Just like with movies I also don’t have favorite subject. It came to me as more of an obligation. Whether I liked it or not, I had to get a passing grade on all of them otherwise I would be punished. That is how I learned to love all of those.

How did you get started in this business?
My little knowledge of the Japanese language was my edge over other applicants. I can still remember how we started from basics. It may have been because of my will to help and that I gave it my all. I had to always think of a way to contribute to our company so that we could finally move on with the operations. We were all so determined and focused on the task. With our gradual phase-in, we received our first sign-up and we were all so amused that our system is already functional and working. That was the moment when I told myself, ‘Hey this is it; it’s the real thing.’

What’s the key to building successful relationships between affiliates and affiliate programs?
Building a successful relationship is a two-way road. Both have to reach out, give some and take some.

If you could vacation for one week with all your expenses paid, where would you go and why?
I am not sure if I can cope with it, but I would want to go to Africa. I want to see for myself how they go about their everyday life. I want to experience living in simplicity and being deprived of the luxury that we have at present. For me, it is the same kind of life that my forefathers experienced, and for that purpose I want to feel how hard life was before with barely having the daily necessities at hand. All the real hardship I could think of would help me to appreciate more what I have with my life today.
