Comprehending how a casino directory works is not something that is common knowledge for most online gamblers.
Gambling guides and casino review sites are sometimes misinterpreted. A lot of people do not realize it is these gambling directories which are very much responsible for the good things that happen in the world of online gaming because they are the ears and voices of the gambling industry. Often times, online casinos have taken back their decision to take a motion which is not player-friendly because of the commotion of guides and portal owners who are almost always what are called “affiliates” in the industry.
There is one thing to keep in mind, the portal owner is responsible for many of the positive things in online gambling and it is equally important to realize that nothing is ever deducted from the player by the existence of the affiliate. Some people think that because the affiliate earns money that they are costing the player something but that is incorrect. Directories are like an extra layer of insurance that the player will be treated properly.
Just like there are good casino sites and bad, there are also good and bad affiliates. The bad ones are those who will advertise any online gambling site willing to give them a better commission, the good ones intervene on behalf of their players in the event a casino mistreats them.
Affiliates are earn money several different ways which include a flat rate for every unique hit sent to the casino website, a set amount for every player who signs up and plays for real money, a percentage of what that player loses, and there is even a payment model that depends mostly on the player winning which is called “wagershare”, a common method used in Las Vegas that deals 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 determined by 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 calculated by how many times you place a bet, or how many hands and at what the stakes are for in roulette or one of the other casino slot games. The more the player wins the more they are going to invest, of course, so this structure is popular with most directories because they want to see the gamblers win and its great when you can also get enjoyment too from that excitement.
The truth is, it all comes out to about the same whatever how the model is based, although the residual income (the percentage of) is the fairest to all involved 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 portal and the casino such as this has no bearing on a player because if the affiliate wasn’t to get a commission, what would they do? The money would go directly 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 extras than anybody else, further is they have nobody to turn for help if they get scammed, whereas those who signed up through a guide can go back to them and ask for intervention.
There are also casino directories and gambling portals that directly sell advertising space and some that were made by the casinos they list. But no matter what the type, at no time does the affiliate ever charge the player anything. Besides, being at an excellent site from which to choose an online casino, these affiliates often offer tips to benefit 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 amount of time it takes to collect winnings.
