Joining the Program
Who is MainStreetAffiliates.com?
MainStreetAffiliates.com was designed with the website owner in mind, bringing you resources that enable you to earn revenue from your website. We only partner with the best and most reputable merchants, offering superior services to those who wish to promote their companies through revenue sharing models.
What will it cost me to join?
There is NO fee or upfront investment needed to participate in this Program. All you need to do is sign up, get your unique Affiliate ID, select a payment plan, and start sending players through to our Online Casinos.
What is the commission structure?
MainStreetAffiliates.com offers one of the best commission programs available in the internet gaming industry today. Our webmasters enjoy a 40% net profit. Our casinos, as Playtech casino clients, guarantee you one of the best conversion ratios on the web today.
I live in an area where it is considered illegal to gamble online. Can I still sign up as an Affiliate / Webmaster?
Yes. Advertising online gambling is not like you are actually gambling yourself. It's 100% legal.
Do I get paid for just placing a casino advertisement on my website?
No, Affiliates earn commissions on the revenue generated by players they refer. Just having banners on your website does not guarantee that your visitors will click on the banners, download the casino, sign up and deposit money. Webmasters need to promote their own websites to attract players.
Do I need to sign up for each Casino separately?
Once you sign up at MainStreetAffiliates.com, you can promote all our Casinos! You only need the one account to get access to the banners, links and reporting statistics of all of our casinos.
When do I start making money?
Once you have become a Main Street Affiliate, you will receive an email with your login information to the MainStreetAffiliates.com website. From there, you can log in and grab a selection of banners and text links. When visitors to your site click on the referral link to any of the MainStreetAffiliates.com Casino’s, they will be tracked by our system. When these visitors open accounts and deposit money into their account to wager on online games. You will earn 40% of any resulting net gaming profits generated by the players you’ve referred.
What are MainStreetAffiliates.com Affiliates's responsibilities?
We will provide you with all the tools and support you need to maximize the clickthrough percentages from your Web site. Each month, we will pay you commissions for any resulting net profits generated by the player you’ve referred.
Can MainStreetAffiliates.com websites be promoted from any forum or message board?
A: MainStreetAffiliates.com will not accept unauthorized traffic directed or redirected to us by any message boards or forums. Any unauthorized traffic coming from any of these two types of sources will be redirected to another location automatically.
Can all marketing tactics and techniques be used to advertise and send players to MainStreetAffiliates.com sites?
No, Main Street Affiliates will not allow any traffic that is generated from any “ad ware,” “spy ware,” or “scum ware” programs or methods. These include, among others, Cydoor, Claria and WhenU. Any affiliate that is caught using these techniques will be banned from all MainStreetAffiliates.com revenue programs, and his revenues will be equally split amongst current partners. If an affiliate adopts any one of these methods, we will be obliged to freeze his revenues and permanently ban him from the program. If deemed necessary, we may also take legal action against him. Please note that we have sophisticated means to trace traffic coming to our site from any of these platforms. If you are aware of or possess evidence of such abuse, please do not hesitate to notify us.
Do you accept adult sites as affiliates?
The casinos that we serve are dedicated to preserving the respectable image that they have worked hard to develop. As such, they do not wish to be associated with any site that contains material of an adult (pornographic) nature.
Do you allow email marketing campaigns?
YES - however we have a ZERO tolerance spamming policy. If you have genuine opt-in customer lists and/or any type of email traffic you will be very successful at marketing our product, however we ask that you contact us first to ensure there are no 'misunderstandings' of what is allowed.
Is it possible for me to lose money in the casino?
The casino can lose money, but it is highly unlikely and might happen in the short run only. In any case, the casinos assume all liability. This is a risk free affiliate program for you. If the players you referred win, you will not be asked to pay us back. We will, however, deduct those winning amounts from your balance with us, but we will NOT ask you to pay us back. You can be sure, though, that the commission program is much more profitable than any other advertising programs in the long run.
How safe and secure is my information with the casino?
Our Casino software uses 128-bit Secure Socket Layer (SSL) Digital Encryption to protect the details of your credit card transactions over the Internet. This is the Internet security standard for online transactions as demanded by major financial institutions.
I've been accepted into the program. How do I get started?
Once you have been accepted to the Millionaire Webmasters Affiliates Program, you can start immediately by downloading the sponsoring casinos' banners to your website. To do this, click on the "Download banners" button in the login area of MainStreetAffiliates.com site. There is a selection of current, proven top-performing banners for each casino, which you may add to your site.
What is a sub-affiliate (2nd tier) and how do I register them?
A sub-Affiliate is someone other than you (or a company in which you are a majority stockholder) that promotes our casino and poker clients underneath you. You will receive credit for any sub-affiliates registered beneath you. Your sub-affiliates will get paid the standard rate. However, because you signed them up, you will receive 5% commission of whatever revenue they generate. Signing up sub affiliates is easy. Simply visit our marketing resources section for more info.
Can I change my username after I have joined MainStreetAffiliates.com?
No. For your own protection and for security reasons, your username cannot be changed once you have been accepted into the program; therefore, it is advised that you select your permanent username carefully when applying.
Will I have tools and aids to help me market and promote the casinos?
Yes! As an Affiliate you are able to extract banners and text links directly to your website. Simply log into your account and choose your favorite banner from our vast banner farm. Also, check out our Marketing Tools available for other marketing materials besides banners and text links. Further, you will receive our monthly Affiliate newsletter, which highlights the on going promotions, special bonuses, incentives and general news about the casino.
Will Main Street Affiliates maintain my website?
No. Main Street Affiliates does not provide website maintenance and therefore does not maintain or update any Affiliates' websites. You can learn more about creating and updating websites through a variety of web editor programs.
Tracking and Statistics
What is my unique tracking code?
Your unique tracking code allows Millionaire Webmasters to track your traffic and sign-ups. You can also decide to promote individual casinos or the Millionaire Webmasters Affiliate Program and send your visitors directly to the relevant pages at each website.
Can I track the success of different properties that I promote?
Yes. Our powerful tools allow you to see the activity and revenue generated through each property separately. You can also create different tracking profiles for each casino to compare individual site performance.
How does the system track my referrals?
A player is linked to you when you have referred them to the casinos using your referral link which can be found either by visiting the marketing tools section, or in the signup mail sent to you on registration. The visitor clicks on the unique URL (banner, text link, email message etc) and Main Street Affiliates is able to track the visitor and give credit to the affiliate for the player referred.
I am not sure my tracking link is working properly. How do I know that my referrals are being tracked to me?
Please send us your site’s full URL and the exact location of our links, in order for us to review them for technical failures.
What useful information is displayed on my statistics page?
The MainStreetAffiliates.com website displays very detailed statistic analysis for webmasters in real time, anytime. You will be able to view the exact number of impressions, clicks, downloads, signups of real and fun accounts, and of course, your share of the profit. These stats will enable you to judge whether or not certain marketing strategies and campaigns work for you or not.
I am a player myself - do I get compensated for my own play?
No, you do not. Attempts to sign up as a partner, and then claim back any losses this way will result in closure of your referral partner account, and possibly closure of your player account as well. You are allowed to play, but your account must not be created through the referral program. Send an email to info@MainStreetAffiliates.com if you are unsure about your player account, and we will check your player account and remove the account from your referral account if needed.
I know I referred a Real New Money Player through my link, but I do not see him in my reports.
Our reports are updated every few of hours. A player should appear on your records within 24 hours after his deposit was confirmed, although sometimes a delay might occur. If after 24 hours your referral is still not showing, please contact our Affiliate team at info@MainStreetAffiliates.com with your referral’s username and email address, and we will look into this matter for you.
How do I know how much money am I making?
We provide online stats for you 24 hours a day. Login with your user name and password to our secure Affiliate stats interface page to see how much you’ve earned and other relevant stats.
What is "net gaming"?
Net gaming is defined as gross bets less payout (calculated using the client software), derived from any real transaction with a linking visitor in which revenue is paid or credited to the client, less: (i) charge backs and discretionary returns; (ii) sign up bonuses; and (iii) promotional bonuses.
Is there a minimum amount for my check to be cut?
Of course! US$50.00 is the minimum amount. Affiliates with a lower revenue balance will have their balance roll over until they meet the minimum amount for payment.
What happens if I have negative commission at the end of the month?
If the players you referred win and you have negative commissions at the end of the month, this will not be carried over to the following month. Any negative balances will be set to zero to start each month.
Can I get my commission paid into my casino account?
Yes, Main Street Affiliates can transfer commissions into your casino player account. Please contact info@MainStreetAffiliates.com with your casino account number.
I see that new REAL accounts were created, but no money there for me. How come?
In this case, players you referred made a download of our casino and opened REAL accounts, but at the time the stats were updated, they had not wagered yet or hadn't lost any amount. Be patient and log on to check your stats at a later time.
Why are there a lot of new accounts, but net gaming shows zero?
The number of new accounts is the number of people who has downloaded and registered an account. This does not mean that they have deposited money yet, or that they ever will. A number of people who register choose to only play for free.
How do I close my MainStreetAffiliates.com account?
To close your MainStreetAffiliates.com account you can simply send an email to info@MainStreetAffiliates.com, and request account closure. We will then ensure that your account is closed. Please ensure that you provide us with your username, full name and address for security and account confirmation purposes.
What is MainStreetAffiliates.com policy on spamming?
MainStreetAffiliates.com does not condone spam or spammers under any circumstances. If we discover that an Affiliate is using spamming practices to market any of our sponsoring casinos, the Webmaster who initiated the spam will have his/her account closed and be removed from the MainStreetAffiliates.com program immediately. Any payments due may also be cancelled.
Will I be able to run special promotions for my potential customers?
