To all of our Affiliate,

As you are probably aware Rival as recently changed the method it uses to calculate its progressive jackpots affiliate contribution and fraud charges and processor seizures.

We understand that these new calculation method has some drawbacks to affiliates promoting our Brand.



As a result Royal Apollo Affiliates is stepping up and adding to all of our active affiliates (that delivered a min of one player in the last month) 5% extra to the current Revenue share agreement.

This should cover the progressive contribution and possible fraud charges and processor seizures.

We are doing this across the board to all of our affiliates (regardless if their players play progressive slots).

At Royal Apollo Affiliates we believe that our affiliates are the most important part of our casino marketing and this step is the best action we can take to assure that our affiliates receive the limited damages from these new calculations.

Detailed Description of affiliate contribution to progressive System

Affiliates will continue to have progressive contributions deducted and will continue to get credit for all progressive cash outs. Additionally, affiliates will receive credit for any progressive wagering losses once a players balance reaches 10% or less of the original jackpot win amount. Any progressive deductions will carry forward month on month if an account shall go negative. An affiliate will participate in the progressive deductions in the same way as an operator. This system will be effective as of March 1st, 2010.

Example)

Player wins $25k jackpot
Seed is $4k
Affiliate contributes their % of each progressive wager for all cases

Case 1:
Player cashes out $25K
Affiliate is limited to having ANW reduced by an amount up to the seed amount so ANW is reduced by -4K

Case 2:
Player cashes out $22K and loses the remaining 3K
Affiliate gets ANW reduced by seed amount (4K) but then increased by 3K on payout completion (10% or below) for a net ANW of -1K

Case 3:
Player cashes out $10K and loses the remaining 15K
Affiliate gets ANW reduced by seed amount (4K) but then increased by 15K on payout completion (10% or below) for a net ANW of +11K

Case 4 :
Player loses the entire 25K
Affiliate gets ANW reduced by seed amount (4K) but then increased by 25K on payout completion (10% or below) for a net ANW of +21K

Case 5:
Player loses 10k of the 25K, he doesn't cash out
Affiliate does not have any ANW adjustment

Case 6:

Player loses 5k, cashes out 10k and has balance of $10k
Affiliate gets ANW reduced by seed amount (4k) but then increased by 10k for a net ANW of +6k



This change will be effective as of March 1st. Please make sure to contact your affiliate manager to verify the additional 5% to your commission.
