Knowing how a gambling guide works is not something that is common knowledge for most online casino patrons.
Gambling directories and casino directories are sometimes misunderstood. The majority of people do not realize it is these casino portals which are very much accountable for the good things that happen in the arena of online gambling because they are the ears and voices of the gaming industry. Many times, online casinos have reversed their decision to take a motion which is not player-friendly because of the protest of guides and portal owners who are almost always what are commonly known as “affiliates” in the industry.
There is one thing to keep in mind, the portal owner is accountable for many of the beneficial things in online gambling and it is equally important to get the idea that nothing is ever diminished from the player by the means of the directory. Some people think that because the portal makes a commission that they are costing the player something but it couldn’t be further from the truth. Directories are like a safety blanket of insurance that the player will be treated right.
Just like there are good casinos and bad, there are also good and bad affiliates. The bad ones are those who will promote any online casino willing to give them a better commission, the good ones step in on behalf of their players at any time a casino defrauds them.
Affiliates are monetize several different ways which include a set amount for every visit sent to the casino website, a flat rate for every player who joins and plays for real money, a percentage of what that player loses, and there is even a commission structure that depends mostly on the player winning which is called “wagershare”, a common method used in Las Vegas that happens 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, online or offline, determines comp points. It is all determines by how many times you put money into the slot machine, or how many hands and at what the stakes are for in roulette or one of the other casino games. The more the player wins the more they are going to bet, of course, so this model is common with most directories because they want to see the gamblers win and its great when you can also profit from that excitement.
The truth is, it all boils down to about the same whatever how the structure is based, although the residual income (the percentage of) is the fairest to all involved because the other structures always end up with one side or the other coming out on the short end of the stick. That meaning, the directory and the gambling site 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 directly from a search engine, they get no more bonuses than anybody else, further is they have nobody to turn for advice if they get scammed, whereas those who signed up through a guide can go back to them and ask for mediation.
There are also casino guides and casino portals that directly sell promotional banners and some that were made by the casinos they list. But no matter what the type, never does the affiliate ever cost the player anything. Additionally, being at an excellent place from which to choose an online casino, these affiliates often offer suggestions to benefit the player in both their game play and in their method to online gambling as it is different than in real life, most noticeably in the time to cash in your winnings.
