BrightShare Partners Review
BrightShare Partners was once a decent affiliate program. However, their reputation took a downward spiral few years ago. It’s one of the few affiliate programs which, when you join, you should be cautious how you do business with them. It looks lucrative and appealing, but once you go into detail of the terms and conditions, you realize, there are a few seemingly insignificant terms that can seriously damage your commission, and your overall partnership with BrightShare Partners.
Currently, it has 3 brands under its belt that have their own competitive advantages. Nonetheless, do business with caution. Question them and ask for confirmation if anything is unclear.
Affiliates that partner with BrightShare Partners can choose one of the two available payment structures. The more common one the net revenue sharing. It’s directly related to your performance, meaning, the more new depositing players you bring to BrightShare Partners’ brands, the higher the commission will be. To illustrate:
- 1 – 10 New Depositing Players: 25% Commission
- 11 – 40 New Depositing Players: 30% Commission
- 41 – 100 New Depositing Players: 35% Commission
- 101+ New Depositing Players: 40% Commission
In addition, during the first three months, new affiliates benefit from boosted commissions. In the 1st month affiliates get 30% flat commission, 2nd month 40%, and in the 3rd month affiliate get 50% flat commission on all net revenue generated by their tagged players.
CPA deals are possible as well. However, this kind of deals is tailored to your specific needs. Depending on your traffic, the location of your visitors, etc, you will be offered a one time payment for the players you bring to BrightShare casinos. Feel free to negotiate. If you have the leverage, you can get a pretty good deal.
BrightShare Partners promise they will pay out all commissions by the 20th day of the following month. Moreover, affiliates can withdraw their commissions via Bank Transfer, ClickandBuy, Neteller, Skrill, EcoPayz, Cheques, Click2Pay and/or FirePay. With the exception of Bank Transfers, all other payment options come with a minimum withdrawal threshold of €100. In order to withdraw via Bank Transfer, affiliates must accumulate at least €300. In addition, all payments made via cheques and bank transfers are subject to a fixed fee of €35. So much for convenience.
So far, the BrigtShare Partners affiliate program looks fair, lucrative and worthy to invest your time and resources.
BrightShare Partners is responsible for the promotion and marketing of online casinos only. There used to be a sportsbook, but was shut down in 2012. They feature a few hundreds of slots, 2 dozens of Video Poker games, Scratch Cards, a variety of table and card games and they have more than 15 progressive slots.
There are also live dealer casino games, provided by the leading live casino game provider, Evolution Gaming. Both desktop and mobile players can play at BrightShare’s brands.
Their brands are present globally, and they specifically seem to be inclined towards players of certain regions. Even the language options clearly identify the regions. As one of BrightShare Partners’ affiliates, you can find great success promoting their casinos to players from Canada, Australia, Italy, New Zealand, Germany and Sweden. We must point out that not all casinos come with the same language options. You have to invest additional resources to wisely promote them.

BrigshtShare’s brands are powered by Microgaming. As such, they boast with abundant game collection, which, in all honesty, are not as diverse as the players want. In addition, as we already mentioned, Evolution Gaming is also present.
Affiliates can get the latest reports, promotional material, track their players and their overall success via BrightShare’s proprietary software. It is user-friendly, which means you shouldn’t be having any difficulties to get the hang of it. It doesn’t showcase any unique, innovative settings or features, ergo you should be able to utilize its full potential in no time.

Three very different online casinos, AllSlotsCasino, AllJackpotsCasino and Wild Jack Casino. AllSlotsCasino is the most prominent. In all honesty, the AllJackpotsCasino needs major design improvements. It looks as if it was launched 8 years ago, and hasn’t been redesigned ever since. The key selling point of all three online casinos is the generous welcome bonus packages. They make them easy to market, especially amongst Microgaming fans.
The terms that we mentioned earlier regarding the liberty BrightShare has to restrict affiliates from promoting their brands in certain markets. This applies to new players only. However, even the existing players you’ve brought to BrightShare Partners will bring you reduced commission, 15%. It’s up to their discretion what markets will they state as restricted to you.
This is in a way, a predatory term. The possibilities are limitless, but the treats are as well. Moreover, there’s a no negative carryover policy in place, but only for regular players. Any player who either wins or loses more than $10,000 is considered a VIP, and will be treated differently.
In addition, the commission is bundled across all brands before it’s paid out.
There’s also a clause that requires affiliates to bring a new player every 3 months. Otherwise, they’re considered inactive, and the commission is reduced to 15%.
