(PRESS RELEASE) -- Income Access, Paysafe Group’s marketing technology and services provider, has partnered with EGR Global, a leading B2B publisher for the online gambling industry, to host a webinar panel discussion on the US gaming and lottery affiliate space on Thursday, 15 November from 8 a.m. PDT/11:00 a.m. EDT/4:00 p.m. GMT. Moderated by Income Access Marketing Director Erica Anderson, the webinar will feature experienced gaming and lottery affiliates as well as operators and service providers.
Titled "The Expanding Frontier: Affiliate Marketing & the Evolution of the American iGaming and iLottery Space," the free one-hour webinar will include the following affiliate panelists: Adam Small, CEO of USBets; Becky Kingman-Gros, COO at Casino Connection Intl.; Chris Capra, former Vice President of Online & Internet Marketing at Tropicana Entertainment (Tropicana Atlantic City Online); Merv Huber-Calvo, Director of Growth Marketing at Scientific Games, which powers Pennsylvania Lottery’s iLottery; and Michael Daly, General Manager U.S. at Catena Media.
In addition to moderating the panel, Anderson will also share Income Access’ experience in the U.S. affiliate market. The company’s platform powers multiple New Jersey iGaming brands’ affiliate programs and its affiliate team has managed Caesars Interactive’s New Jersey and Nevada-facing channel since 2015. In addition, the team has managed Michigan Lottery and Pennsylvania Lottery’s Income Access-powered affiliate programs since their respective launches this year.
Income Access is also part of Paysafe Group, which has been providing payment services tailored for sports betting globally for decades and has experience processing payments for regulated online gaming in North America. The company offers credit card and ACH payment processing capabilities, online cash solutions, and digital wallet products, such as its proprietary wallets Skrill and NETELLER, for the iGaming market.
The webinar will explore affiliate marketing’s role in growing the New Jersey and Nevada iGaming markets from their 2013 launches, focusing on both the challenges and the progress to date. Following the repeal of the Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act (PASPA)’s federal ban on single-event sports-betting and ahead of the launch of Pennsylvania’s iGaming market, the panelists will also discuss how the gaming affiliate space could evolve going forward.
In addition, the webinar will analyze the emerging state iLottery affiliate space. With states like New Hampshire recently launching online lotteries, the panel will also assess the outlook for the affiliate channel.
Following a 45-minute panel discussion, there will be a 15-minute Q&A period.
Tara Wilson, General Manager at Income Access, said, “With the repeal of PASPA and state lotteries now leveraging affiliate marketing, 2018 has been a landmark year for the U.S. gaming and lottery industries. We look forward to contributing to a far-ranging and insightful debate on the next phase of the affiliate channel’s American evolution.”
