What Is a Casino Portal?

Grasping how a casino directory works is not something that is easily understood for most online gamblers.

Gambling guides and casino directories are sometimes not very well understood. So Many people do not realize it is these casino portals which are very much accountable for the good things that happen in the place of online casinos because they are the ears and voices of the gambling world. Occasionally, online casinos have turned back on their decision to take a plan which is not player-friendly because of the protest of guides and portal owners who are almost always what are referred to as “affiliates” in the community.

You should know, the portal owner is responsible for many of the beneficial things in online gambling and it is equally important to be aware that nothing is ever taken from the player by the existence of the affiliate. Some people think that because the portal gets a referral fee that they are costing the player something but they are wrong. Directories are like an extra layer of insurance that the player will be treated properly.

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 gambling site willing to give them a better commission, the good ones intervene on behalf of their players whenever a casino mistreats them.

Affiliates are make money 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 payment model that depends largely on the player winning which is called “wagershare”, a common practice in Las Vegas that deals with high rollers where someone who is a free-lance escort is paid in that regard… which is a percentage on whatever amount is wagered. 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, figures comp points. It is all calculated by how many times you put money into the slot machine, or how many hands and at what the stakes are for in craps or one of the other casino games. The more the player wins the more they are going to wager, of course, so this model is common with most guides because they want to see the gamblers win and its great when you can also profit from that excitement.

In truth, it all boils down to about the same no matter how the structure is based, although the residual income (the percentage of) is the most honest 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 affiliate and the gambling site such as this has no bearing on a player because if the affiliate wasn’t to get money, what would they do?  The money would go straight 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 right from a search engine, they get no more extras 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 gambling directories and casino portals that straight out sell advertising space and some that were created by the casinos themselves. But no matter what the type, at no time does the affiliate ever cost the player anything. Otherwise, being at an excellent portal from which to choose an online casino, these affiliates often offer strategies 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.
