GPWA Times Magazine - Issue 45 - October 2019

You’ve been involved in the iGaming affiliate industry for almost a decade with a few different companies. How did you find your way into the industry? I found my way into the iGaming industry when I made the decision to move to Malta in 2012. I started in customer support and worked my way up. The move to Malta was a random choice. I wanted a change, so I took the globe and spun it and Malta came up. I booked a one-way ticket and a one-week hotel stay. Before iGaming, I was working in an online retail shop inNorway. I had also been working a few years in the adult dating affiliate industry, as I wanted to learn more about other affiliate industries to broaden my experience. Where are you from, and what else can you tell us about your background? I grew up in a midsize town called Halmstad in Sweden. Since then I have lived in Norway, I’ve traveled the world and now I’m currently based in Malta. What makes BetWinnerAffiliates stand out from other affiliate programs? Real-time statistics, no admin fees. We have an awesome app, weekly payments and partner support (live chat, e-mail). What do you most like about the iGaming industry? There are a lot of opportunities and no limits on personal growth . You get to see how the new markets are developing. I like the fast-changing environment and meeting new people. There is never a dull moment in this industry! How often do you attend affiliate events? As often as possible. I like to see old and new faces and to meet up with people that you otherwise just have Skype conversations with . I think the personal meeting is very important, and that is what I like the most.
