|Stockholm, Sweden/June 10, 2005 - The world’s third largest online poker site, PokerRoom.com, has launched one of the most comprehensive and rewarding partner programs on the Internet. The Poker Affiliate Program by PokerRoom.com allows potential partners and webmasters to benefit from the online poker site’s growing success in the online gaming market by recruiting new players to the site.|
Once a partner signs up at www.PokerAffiliate.com, they gain access to resources such as banners, text links and special incentives to help promote PokerRoom.com on their website. Each banner or text link generates a tracker code, which tracks all players that click on the partner’s banner and consequently register on PokerRoom.com. Once players start playing with real money, the partner starts generating revenue.
“What separates our affiliate program from other ones within the industry is our sense of community and loyalty to our partners,” says Edward Ihre, affiliate director, PokerRoom.com/PokerAffiliate.com. “The new program will give partners and management what we envisioned when we started this project – flexibility, customization, financial reward, service and incentives in an exciting industry that continues to experience phenomenal growth. It is the support of these affiliates that help make PokerRoom.com a success as we move into new markets around the world.”
Always have the winning hand
PokerRoom.com partners will always play with a winning hand with the Poker Affiliate Program. Depending on the partner’s success, the program rewards them with a percentage of revenue share basis from poker games and tournaments, and potentially other casino games, for any players recruited to PokerRoom.com. When affiliates play their cards right, PokerRoom.com automatically upgrades the affiliate to different levels. With each level the affiliate earns a greater Revenue Share or increased Fixed Fee Per Customer (CPA) as well as additional reward games (BlackJack and Caribbean Poker), from which the partner can generate additional revenue. Partners have the potential to earn up to 40 per cent Revenue Share or $150.00 USD per customer recruited. In addition, through the program’s website, www.PokerAffiliate.com, partners can log on to view statistics, update profiles, change payments methods, access marketing tools and special promotions, as well as participate in very unique partner incentive competitions.
