Poker Affiliate Programs

Poker Affiliate

All major poker sites offer partnership opportunities through special affiliate programs. Such agreements allow getting profit through a win-win system, where each side benefits from the collaboration. 

If an individual has a website, blog, or social media group, they can become an online room partner and get paid for it.

By attracting new players to a specific platform, there's a chance to create a solid financial "safety cushion".

Earning Through Poker Affiliate Programs

The algorithm of actions is simple.

Step 1
Step 1

You register as a partner in one of the largest online rooms according to your choice (we remind you that all large sites have this offer: GGPoker, PokerStars, 888, PartyPoker, UnibetPoker and others).

Step 2
Step 2

Post a link to your ally at your site or blog or banner (The writing of small review and an emphasis on the advantages of play exactly in this room will be a plus for attraction new players and, therefore, increasing your earnings).

Step 3
Step 3

The users of your site or the readers of your blog who are interested in this promotion will register by clicking on this link.

Step 4

If the players, who you attracted to a  poker room, have made the deposit and began to play for real money, then you will be rewarded for their attraction.

There are even networks that supply people/companies with poker-related offers they can promote across their social media, blogs and/or websites. They typically provide great advertising tools so that affiliates can stand out. One example of these networks is Poker Affiliate Ware.

Types of Partnership Deals

Are you looking for the best poker affiliate program? They vary by online room and may differ in amount and terms of payouts.

  • RevShare (revenue share)

This system means obtaining profit as a percentage from the rake paid by a player. Usually, this percentage varies from 15% to 40%. Thanks to this system you can get money from attracted users until they play and generate rake on the platform.

  • CPA (cost per action)

You get a fixed profit regardless of the rake amount a user will generate. A player is considered attracted if they have made the minimum deposit into the room you market. As a rule, it is from $10 to $30.

  • Hybrid model

This is a combination of the two above-mentioned systems. According to its terms, you will get paid immediately after players top up their accounts and for the rake they generate.

Example of RevShare Commission Type on Stars

  • After attracting 1-2 gamblers you will get 15% from their rake
  • 3-5 – 20%
  • 6-10 – 22%
  • 11-20 – 25%
  • 21-40 – 27%
  • 41-80 – 30%
  • 81-200 – 32%
  • 201 players and more – 35%
