ProgressPlay take off at SiGMA with sneak preview of revolutionary new platform



Reading Time: 2 minutes


White-label and turnkey provider ProgressPlay had a hit at SiGMA in Malta last week with a sneak preview of their new platform which is currently in beta-testing, picking up a few new clients along the way as well as wowing operators already hooked-up to the white-label specialist.

The new API-based platform, which embodies a revolutionary new look with an intuitive UI/UX and lightening-fast finger-responsive screen navigation, is faster, more stable and secure, has been a labour of love, with ProgressPlay’s technical team and full complement of developers working round-the-clock most of the year to bring the ambitious project in on-time for a sneak beta preview at Europe’s biggest iGaming show in Malta.

Due out early next year, the much anticipated launch of ProgressPlay’s next generation technology and platform revamp has been a source of intense industry speculation, with those close to the company saying that what they have seen “blows the socks off” the current offering, now in it’s 10th year of steady service to over 150 international online casino brands.


ProgressPlay provides a multilingual multicurrency technology platform with cutting-edge content that includes thousands of games, business intelligence and metrics generation, alongside maintaining a brand cluster across verticals including casino games, live gaming and sports betting.

In the white-label sector, ProgressPlay has established itself as a pioneer, and was most recently shortlisted for the prestigious EGR B2B Awards for White-Label Partner Excellence. This platform upgrade in the making adds additional value to the popular provider for both the B2B channel as well as for players.

Marina Nahhas, ProgressPlay’s Head of Sales and Account Management, said: “We came to SiGMA to talk with partners and casinos about what’s in-store with the platform next year and they’re asking us to get the full version to them as soon as possible! We were not expecting this level of enthusiasm, or to get out of the gates so quickly and with such an overwhelmingly positive response. It has reinforced in all of the team why we gave this project top priority.”

ProgressPlay CEO Itai Loewenstein commented: “We came to SiGMA with few expectations on how the beta of the new platform would be received, and instead we are walking away from the show with a clutch of new contracts. Frankly, we look forward to publically unveiling the fruit of all this labour in the coming weeks and we’re delighted by the strength of our attendance at the show.”

How to avoid failing at affiliate marketing in 2024?




Reading Time: 4 minutes

The evolving landscape of affiliate marketing within the iGaming ecosystem presents both opportunities and challenges due to regulatory shifts. Adapting to these changes is crucial to navigate the dynamic environment effectively. Slotegrator experts exploring strategies to avoid pitfalls globally and adopting adaptable approaches can optimize affiliate marketing amidst evolving regulations.

The iGaming industry has had to focus on a number of changes in the area of affiliate marketing –  as a result of regulatory and advertising changes.

Beyond that, it’s important to keep in mind another important key initiatives that include key components of a successful affiliate program:

  • The quality of the content the affiliate creates.
  • Regulations the affiliate or affiliate program might be subject to.
  • This is especially important if the affiliate expects a commission for every sign-up. If the affiliate is getting paid for every player they send your way, the players need to stay for a while for it to be worth it.
  • An ongoing analysis of the size and quality of traffic the affiliate is delivering you.

To know more about these points you can read an instruction from the Slotegrator Academy by link.

The changes have not only affected the regulatory environment of the iGaming industry, but also affiliate marketing as a result of the general changes. What is important to look out for?


Slotegrator shares some regional specifics of affiliate marketing:

  • Asia is a diverse and dynamic region for affiliate marketing in the iGaming industry. Affiliates operating in Asia have to navigate complex regulatory conditions and varying cultural attitudes. Marketing managers have to employ strategies that prioritize mobile channelization, collaboration with opinion leaders, and compliance with local laws — all of which are essential to success.
  • Affiliate marketing in Africa is still in its early stages but is already showing significant potential. With the increasing availability of the internet and the spread of smartphones, the continent is opening up opportunities for affiliates to reach a fast-growing market. However, factors such as regulatory uncertainty, payment processing difficulties, and the cultural diversity of the region need to be taken into account.
  • In Latin America working with local affiliates who have a deep understanding of the regional market helps to better customize marketing campaigns and achieve higher conversion rates. Given the strict regulation of gambling in some Latin American countries, it is important to comply with local laws and advertising restrictions to avoid negative consequences.
  • Affiliate marketing in Europe is a dynamic and competitive landscape where effective strategies and a professional approach can ensure significant business success and growth in the iGaming sector. One of the important parts of affiliate marketing in Europe is the use of a variety of channels to build audiences. It helps to diversify and increase the flow of traffic to the partner’s site, which helps to increase conversion rates. Careful research of each country’s rules and restrictions is needed regarding the advertising and promotion of gambling.

Alyce Fabel from CasinoRIX, Slotegrator’s media partner, summarizes key aspects for affiliate companies to concentrate on.“As each year passes, affiliates must strive to improve and keep pace with the market. Competition is growing, regulations are evolving, and that brings changes to many regions. We can highlight five key points for affiliate companies to focus on:

  • Continuously search for and acquire new traffic channels. It’s crucial not to focus only on one channel; diversification is necessary. This has been particularly evident in the past year, with significant changes and updates in SEO and mobile traffic (iOS/Android applications).
  • Ensure content quality. As AI tools continue to advance, it’s essential not only to learn to apply them in work but also to differentiate content written by humans from AI-generated content (especially crucial for SEO projects).
  • Configure deep analytics. Constantly work on improving traffic quality and understand where to make enhancements. The standards for traffic quality are rising.
  • Provide added value. It’s time to start developing the product aspect as well, thinking not only as an affiliate but also about providing customers with additional value. This will also help in achieving higher-quality marketing.”

Cultivate relationships with partners. Build strong and lasting relationships, stay informed about all industry changes and news, and keep up with technologies and innovations. This is crucial for achieving high results.

And some words about the affiliate marketing trends as a compass to guide development efforts in this area in the right direction. Khoren Ispiryan, sales manager at Slotegrator, and the speaker of the latest Prague Gaming & TECH Summit ‘24, shares some insights:

  • “The best thing is to include real people in the affiliate marketing. To create an environment where bloggers, streamers and influencers will make a bigger impact on the end user behavior.
  • In 2024, gambling companies will continue to partner with influencers and other internet celebrities. These partnerships will be increasingly effective methods of attracting new audiences, promoting products, and increasing brand awareness.
  • Loyalty programs and other ways of enhancing the user experience will also be essential for the promotion of gambling websites.
  • The development of partner relationship management software will be a major priority. It will help improve usability for affiliate partners and enable better communication between companies and affiliates. For instance, Partnergrator from Slotegrator offers a solution for online gambling platform operators who face difficulties in tracking their affiliate program data. This innovative solution provides the ability to manage and analyze affiliate programs in real-time, using analytics to simplify the decision-making process.”
