    Best performing once again were White Hat brands. With 50+ software providers and attractive welcome bonuses, players seem to love these.
    Worse performing was Videoslots and LeoVegas. I guess this is down to everyone already have an account and/or the influx of streamers promoting these

    About 50% up in revenues with the same amount on FTDs due to a complete market/GEO change.
    And the Oscar goes to:
    Best converting - Betrally Asia
    Highest player value - Webpartners
    Biggest traffic waster - Dafabet

    Earnings up traffic largely the same, the beauty of growing a good account base.

    Traffic steady, earnings down.

    This was due to a couple of random winner hits - which meant a couple of months of zero payouts at a couple of top 5 sites.
    We also dumped two long-term partners (Ladbrokes / Interwetten) for predatory actions on affiliates.

    What I am noticing is a growing traffic base of mobile phones from Africa (low value) and Asia (low converting).
    The quality of the readership - and disposable income - is not there.

    2018 was the first year since my start 2009 that my overall affiliate earnings stagnated. Gambling revenues went up, but this was compensated by huge decreases in other areas.

    Earnings increased, which is not very strange as player bases keep on growing and I try to focus on brands when I am able to do so.

    Best performers are brands, like Casumo, Mr. Green and Leo Vegas.

    Worst performers are Energy, EGO, Game-Revenue and some others that I've tried, but dropped. If things are broken, it's better to throw them away instead of cutting hour fingers trying to fix it.

    Decreased revenue.

    Few factors, decreased traffic the main one and a few factors which influened the decreased traffic including:
    - Increased competition for fewer spaces in Google
    - Couple of my niches that were underexposed when I got involved have now got big affiliate companies chasing them
    - My own lethargy, ill health etc
    - Few decent affiliate programs and the increased amount of work that goes with all the compliance stuff

    Total revenue, traffic and number of ftd's have improved significantly, even with some major markets closing down and lots of programmes pulling out of my main market. So, all in all, I am very happy with the results in 2018. I have been working very hard to get where I am today.

    Best performing: Alea (Slots Million), LeoVegas, Casumo, Heroaffiliates (Betser, Casino Heroes), Playamo, Partner-Up (Gate777).

    Worst performers: all my partners create revenue for me, even the programmes that seem to attract the smaller players on my sites (Cruise affiliates, Casinoluck affilates). But lots of small players can still also create a nice bit of extra income, so I am not complaining.

    Huge decrease. Lost stargames and quasargaming huge players base because of the closure of the programs.

    Lowester player value:

    Rizk, high deposits, low earnings. Out of 27k in deposits and 60 Players I earned 1.300€ (about 25€ per Player after 12 month, 5% of the deposits earning only, what a joke!). Netgaming combined over 12 month was negative. Only earned because of the no negative carry over rule.



    Currently I'm using casumo, dunder and betsson. To early to say something. Still looking for a good solution for german traffic.

    I was never able to get the exact fee deduction for Rizk, but to me it seems that their fees and especially their bonus costs are insane. Bonus costs were eating my commission for a big part.

    Their stats are not transparent, who knows how they calcualte netgaming. Its just not normal that you get a negative netgaming after 12 month and so many players generate a negative commission.

    My earnings are all casino related and are up approximately 15.5% on 2017. FTD's are up approximately 49% for the same period. My most improved affiliate program for 2018 is Genesis Affiliates.
