AFFILIATE EARNINGS & PAYMENTS
Please take note that credit shall not be issued to any affiliate.
On joining this affiliate program your account will be set to our default commission of 25% of "Net Revenue" - rising to 40% based upon your performance. The commission percentage received will be based upon the NGR KPI as follows:
- Up to 0.12 BTC or up to €5k a Month : 25% Net Revenue
- 0.12 to 0.25 BTC or €5k to €10k a Month : 30%
- 0.25 to 0.5 BTC or €10k to €20k a Month : 35%
- Over 0.5 BTC or over €20k a Month: 40%
Your revenue share is calculated as a percentage of your Net Gaming Revenue. Net Gaming Revenue = (bets - wins – bonuses) – admin fee (25%).
Your affiliate earnings are personal to you and you shall have no claim to affiliate earnings or other compensation on business secured by or through persons or entities other than you. You cannot withdraw payments for or on behalf of another third party.
COMPANY reserves the right to change any affiliate earnings structure (or any part thereof) from time to time, for any reason it deems fit.
All affiliate earnings payments will be paid to your affiliate account designated in your affiliate sign-up form in the currency of our choice. Payment will be made by wire, Skrill, player account transfer, or any other method as we in our sole discretion decide; however, we will use reasonable endeavors to accommodate your preferred payment method.
Affiliates need at least 3 depositing players (active) before their first commission is paid.
Minimum withdrawals for affiliates is Infinity BTC or €100. Should you have earned a lesser amount, the money will remain pending in the system until you have collected enough money for us to process the cashout.
Any charges for conversion, processing and delivering payment to you will be deducted from your affiliate earnings. For the avoidance of doubt, we have no liability to pay any currency conversion charges or any charges associated with the transfer of monies to your designated account.
In the event that we determine any activity to constitute fraud traffic, or to otherwise be in contravention of this agreement, then in our sole discretion we may: (i) pay the affiliate earnings in full, (ii) recalculate them in light of such suspected fraud traffic or contravention, (iii) delay payment of the affiliate earnings while we investigate and verify the relevant transactions or (iv) forfeit your affiliate earnings.
If you disagree with the reports or amount payable, do NOT request or accept payment for such an amount and immediately send us written notice of your dispute. Further, deposit of payment check, acceptance of payment transfer or acceptance of other payment from us by you will be deemed full and final settlement. Notwithstanding the foregoing, if any overpayment is made in the calculation of your affiliate earnings, we reserve the right to correct such calculation at any time and to reclaim from you any overpayment made by us to you.
Payment shall be processed on the 5th of the following month in which the traffic was generated. If we suspect the terms and conditions have been breached or the occurrence of fraud traffic, the payment request may be held over for investigation and your account will be frozen until we can validate that there has been no breach of these terms and conditions.
If your account remains frozen as a consequence of this for a continuous period of 180 days then in the absence of: satisfactory explanation; or evidence to prove legitimate dealings, funds remaining in your account will be removed and your account closed.
You shall comply with all applicable laws and any policy notified by us through our site or otherwise in relation to money laundering and/or suspicious transactions.
All affiliates shall be responsible for paying such taxes on their affiliate earnings under the laws applicable to them.
If you wish to offer any incentives to potential players, you are required by us to receive prior written approval before commencing any such activity. In the event that you do not receive such approval but offer such incentives, we reserve the right to cancel your participation in the program, and refuse payment of any previously earned, but unpaid, commissions.
There is no negative carryover when it comes to Euro and Bitcoin wagering. All negative amounts from Bitcoin and Euro wagering will not be carried over to the following months.
All affiliate Euro and Bitcoin commissions will be leveled off i.e. if the affiliate has negative Bitcoin wagering and positive Euro wagering, negative Bitcoin commission will be deducted from positive Euro commission.
All crypto revenue (ETH, LTC etc.) will be converted to BTC, while all fiat revenue (USD, CAD etc) will be converted and paid in EUR.
Due to strict anti-money laundering requirements, we require one or more forms of documentation to verify your identity before we can make an initial payment out to you. If for a continuous period of 180 days from our request for this verification documentation, we have still not received the same from you then the funds remaining in your account will become dormant. Upon becoming dormant we will issue a warning advising that the funds remaining in your account will be removed if the necessary verification document is not received within the following 90 days, funds remaining in your account will be removed and your account closed.
We will track and report player activity for purposes of calculating your affiliate earnings. The form and content of the reports may vary from time to time in our sole discretion. Generally, you can at your own initiative and timing, generate your own reports regarding the qualified acquisitions signed up in a particular period and/or the total amount due to you after any deductions or set-offs that we are entitled to make under this agreement. We hereby exclude any and all liability for the timeliness, accuracy or completeness of any such reports.
This agreement will take effect when you indicate your acceptance of these terms and conditions on the affiliate sign-up form and continues until terminated in accordance with the terms of this agreement.
