Knowing how a casino portal works is not something that is easily understood for most online casino players.
Gambling directories and casino directories are sometimes misinterpreted. Many people do not realize it is these gambling directories which are very much to praise for the good things that happen in the place of online casinos because they are the go-between of the gaming industry. Many times, online casinos have changed their decision to take an action which is not player-friendly because of the protest of directories and portal owners who are almost always what are labeled as “affiliates” in the community.
You should know, the portal owner is responsible for many of the positive things in online gambling and it is equally important to understand that nothing is ever deducted from the player by the existence of the affiliate. Some people think that because the portal gets a referral fee that they are costing the player something but they are wrong. Directories are like a safety blanket of insurance that the player will be treated fairly.
Just like there are good gambling sites and bad, there are also good and bad affiliates. The bad ones are those who will promote any online casino willing to pay them, the good ones step in on behalf of their players whenever a casino defrauds them.
Affiliates are paid in several different ways which include a flat rate for every visitor sent to the casino website, a flat rate for every player who joins and plays for real money, a percentage of player losses, and there is even a commission structure that depends largely on the player winning which is called “wagershare”, a common system in Las Vegas that has to do with high rollers where someone who is a free-lance escort is paid under those conditions… which is a percentage on whatever amount is gambled. That is not based on what is won or what is lost, but rather it is just like the way any casino, land or virtual, calculates comp points. It is all figured on how many times you make a wager, or how many hands and at what the stakes are for in blackjack or one of the other gambling games. The more the player wins the more they are going to invest, of course, so this structure is a favorite with most directories because they want to see the players win and its great when you can also get enjoyment too from that excitement.
In truth, it all figures out to about the same no matter how the model is based, although the residual income (the percentage of) is the most fair to all parties because the other models always end up with one side or the other coming out on the short end of the stick. That meaning, the affiliate and the gambling site such as this has no relation to a player because if the affiliate wasn’t to get money, what would they do? The money would go right back into the casino’s advertising budget or their pocket but it wouldn’t go back to the player. Just ask anybody who has ever signed up straight from a search engine, they get no more perks than anybody else, further is they have nobody to turn for advice if they get cheated, whereas those who signed up through a guide can go back to them and ask for arbitration.
There are also casino guides and gambling portals that straight out sell advertising banners and some that were created by the casinos they list. But no matter what the type, never does the affiliate ever cost the player anything. Besides, being at an excellent site from which to choose an online casino, these establishments often offer tips to help the player in both their game play and in their approach to online gambling as it is different than in real life, most noticeably in the time to cash in your winnings.
