Everest Affiliates represents many months of collaborative work with top affiliates to achieve a much needed upgrade to the existing affiliate platform, Affiliated Web Attractions. The new portal was launched on 4 October 2007 and will serve as the exclusive affiliate program for the popular Everest Poker and Everest Casino brands. As of 1 December 2007, Everest Poker has ranked 6th in the world in terms of most cash players seated at any given moment. (source:

Everest Affiliates focuses almost exclusively on European, Asian and South American players (15 languages and counting) and has a staff of 25+ dedicated affiliate managers from all corners of the globe with local expertise. Everest poker runs satellites for the major poker events, hosts their very own European Poker Cup, and satellites into tournaments which have tremendous local interest such as the Austrian Open and Torneo di Poker in Slovenia.

The software platform (Voted 2006/2007 Favourite Poker Room by players) is exclusive to Everest and therefore player data is never shared with any other brand. Everest listens to the changes that players and partners want to make and they build it! Further independent honors for the program include a listing in the iGaming Business 2007 Marketplace Guide as one of the “Top 10 Companies to Watch in iGaming”.
