    I am an affiliate manager at a gambling company & looking for affiliates,
    to promote our casino brands through cpa / revshare attractive deals .

    I have approached many affiliates / casino related website owners,
    but even the minority of them who did answered , were already full of casino programs.

    Because this field is very competitive, Were do you recommend me to look for affiliates/ websites ,
    that i might have a better chance with them ?

    I have searched through Google, Linkedin, Various forums like this ,
    but i am starting to think that maybe the best is to look for new registered sites that aren't already fully booked..

    The main issue is the legality of the service that you offer. There isn't a person here who wouldn't gladly market for an online casino -- if it were legal. Here's one of the greatest threads on this subject on BHW that I bookmarked back when I was a lurker:
    http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackh...06223-gambling-affiliate-legal-questions.html
    (It should be a sticky)

    If you invested in legal advice to specifically document legal ways to market your website and provided that to potential affiliates in the form of a prospectus, I personally would look into it. Marketing gambling websites and marketing GoDaddy are two very different things.

    Your view is quite limited. It might be illegal in your country, but not globally. There are many countries which allows marketing of online casinos.

    You could try the GPWA.org forum. But I would not go spamming it for affiliates.

    From my limited experience in this field, I've learned that, unfortunately, where it's a big market, it's also illegal to market the gambling niche. Of course, I would be interested to learn more on this subject, therefore I am waiting to see some expert's opinion here.

    It is legal, not everyone lives in America you know. Other than that, I am pretty sure it is legal for Americans to market online casinos aimed at other countries.

    You yourself dabble in the gambling niche don't you? How well are you doing with that? Asking purely out of curiosity.

    I do very well. However it looks like I may be doing time in jail soon, as it is illegal apparently.

    Target all the main casinos in your country, make a list of all of the affiliates that they use, (you can do this using advanced search operators scrapers or simply things like ahrefs if you know the right footprint) sort the output by whatever metric tells you which one is the most active then manually reach out to them.

    job done.

    It also depends which software your casino uses. If you have Netent or Microgaming games, also established affiliate sites should give you some space on their website. IF you can offer a special exclusive bonus or freespins even better. Affiliates are always looking for exclusive deals in exchange for a good website position.

    I would rather be his bitch, I'm not much of a giver.

    Hi Friends . I see that an interesting discussion going on here,
    But i still didn't got answers, where will it be best to look for casino affiliates ,
    that there is a better chance , they agreed to test our casinos on a cpa/revshare base ?

    As i said , i looked in all the major forums like Linkedin, GPWA & other .
    Also Adwords or other affiliates targeted advertising is not relevant , as i am in the affiliate & not the marketing department.

    Hello mickyfu,

    Can you provide us some insights on how to market casino offers? Also what are the potential earnings to expect?
