|A new affiliate scheme being launched by Casinoactive.NET promises “a form of gambling insurance” for online gamblers. CasinoActive.NET is a casino portal that promises to give back to the player 10 – 15% of their losses at participating casinos. |
'Basically what CasinoActive.NET does is offer players a share of the money we earn as a casino affiliate,' says Dylan Smith, lead developer and founding member of CasinoActive.NET.
Players who click through to a casino from CasinoActive.NET earn back ten to fifteen percent of losses accrued at any of the portal's affiliated casinos. These funds are then processed using the online money transfer service, Neteller.
CasinoActive.NET members are able to access a number of features through the CasinoActive.NET website, most notably account management and reporting tools that allow players to view and edit their personal details, see a list of the casinos they have joined through CasinoActive.NET, and how much is owed to them. Members receive their funds from CasinoActive.NET .NET on a bi-monthly basis. Players must register for the service, but membership is free.
This is a bold move in an extremely competitive market, and provided that Casinoactive.NET pays out as it says, it could be a winner. However, some affiliate marketing programs have had a bad reputation for non payment in the past, so that will be one hurdle to overcome.
At present, only seven casinos participate, although CasinoActive.NET promises more will be added soon. Those casinos are: Carnival Casino, Casino Del Rio, Casino King, Casino Las Vegas, Casino Tropez, Club Dice Casino and Swiss Casino.
And guess what? They are all Playtech casinos. There’s nothing wrong with that – several of the above have been reviewed here at OnlineCasinoNews.com, and very good they are too.
The spelling of the .NET suffix might give the impression that this is related to Microsoft’s .NET initiative – which it isn’t.
Bear in mind that you cannot re-join any casino at which you already hold an account, since casinos have rules against players holding multiple accounts.
