I’m doing a little research at the moment into the different companies which supply software for online gaming, particularly tournament.
The client is EU based but is looking at setting up a program catering to the African market.
I’ve specifically looked at Cryptologic and Playtech. I like the Cryptologic platform and in particular the tournament facility. Not as impressed with Playtech but it has potential.
As affiliates, do you prefer promoting merchants with a particular platform (Playtech or Cryptologic) or are there alternative platforms worth considering?November 27, 2007 at 6:04 pm #755111AnonymousInactive
Are there any casinos targeting the African market already?November 27, 2007 at 6:30 pm #755119goldaMemberNovember 27, 2007 at 7:07 pm #755121AnonymousInactive
i guess its not a question of what i prefer to promote but more of what converts better with our visitors…playtech converts better, but stats can be dodgy due to shaving. cryptologic is much safer in that aspect, but doesn’t convert well…

I presume you mean shaving by the merchant? What as a matter of interest do you believe is the main failing with Cryptologic in terms of poor conversion?November 27, 2007 at 8:13 pm #755130AnonymousInactive
I like cryptologic, it’s a better software IMO and in the end that wins.
Crypto converts better than playtech at the time, but neither of them does much for me.
I think you’ll get a variety of opinions and experiences.November 27, 2007 at 9:13 pm #755132vladcizsolMember
Crypto gets my vote also.November 27, 2007 at 9:34 pm #755135
Many thanks everyone for your replies. If anyone can point me in the direction of additional software providers please feel free to contact me.
Unless there are suitable alternatives I’ll be recommending Cryptologic as the preferred software package.November 28, 2007 at 7:38 am #755155AnonymousInactive
I agree with Crypto also, but what about Microgaming?
They are introducing new slots every month almost as fast as Crypto.November 28, 2007 at 12:32 pm #755167AnonymousInactive
Microgaming is great, even though most of the slots they release are just re-graphic’d clones of existing slots.
They still seem to have the largest fan-base, though, for slots players.November 28, 2007 at 1:22 pm #755171CaptainetteMember
Wagerworks has a great range of excellent Slot machines but none of their Casinos is focused on the S.A. market (yet).November 28, 2007 at 2:08 pm #755172AnonymousInactive

For my site audience the Wagerworks games are the most popular with downloads smoking all other programs almost 10 to 1. So much so that I had to move them as they were stealing from the other programs which have a much wider demographic.
Of all platforms I tried I was always impressed with the Crypto software the most as it runs excellent. Although the graphics aren’t as elaborate as the Microgaming slots more players should really consider it as they have some games that can pay pretty good.

OK Many thanks everyone. Plenty to think about. I’ll be reviewing it all over the next week. We’re looking at South Africa as a venue at some stage but that’s not my brief. Many thanks once again to everyone who has contributed.November 29, 2007 at 9:17 am #755206AnonymousInactive

yes, by merchant.
its hard to pin point why playtech converts better than crypto with us. part of the reason is that we don’t work with that many crypto casinos, only 4 i believe, while we promote a lot more playtechs.
playtechs offer bigger currency and language variety, which i haven’t seen the same for cryptologic….
playtechs definitely offer bigger bonuses so they attract more new players, while cryptologic is better at retaining players.December 2, 2007 at 1:43 pm #755393CaptainetteMember

K, since most of you guys voted for Cryptologic. Which Cryptologic Casino do you find the most successful for you? who would you recommend…
You will not go wrong with any of them. All of their Casinos are well reputed with great gambling services and top performance. Imo, Inter & Playboy are best of the best however.
