BrightShare Ltd. operating as Brightshare.com has become the third online gambling affiliate program to receive eCOGRA’s Affiliate Trust seal following rigorous inspection and monitoring by the independent player protection and standards body's professional compliance teams.
BrightShare handles the affiliate marketing activities of the popular Jackpot Factory group, which owns nine online gambling brands including five online casinos featuring Microgaming’s Viper download and Flash instant play software, a multiplayer poker room, an online bingo hall and two mobile casinos.
Like eCOGRA’s accreditation process for gambling site operators, the recently introduced affiliate service provides detailed best practice business standards, backed by a strict inspection and monitoring process. Approved affiliate programs are entitled to display the eCOGRA Affiliate Trust Seal, marking the holder's success in achieving the required levels of integrity and efficiency.
The standards attached to the seal have been specifically designed for affiliate program operations, a Brightshare spokesman said.
To display the new seal, affiliate programs must demonstrate that their program establishes, enforces and monitors best practice standards. Specifically, they must show that they calculate affiliate revenue accurately and make payments promptly, communicate efficiently and that they have controls in place to accurately link players to affiliates.
Although there are others monitoring affiliate programs, eCOGRA provides the most public, structured and formal on-site inspection approach, ensuring adherence to consistent standards through regular monitoring and full annual reviews carried out by appropriately qualified audit and accounting professionals.
Congratulating BrightShare on achieving accreditation, eCOGRA CEO Andrew Beveridge said his compliance teams had been impressed with the high levels of efficiency encountered during their on-site and in-depth study of BrightShare operations.
He added that the credibility of the Affiliate Trust seal, and the improvement in business that this could deliver had resulted in a growing number of applicants.
"eCOGRA's independent directors are very pleased with the positive response by affiliate programs to this custom-designed addition to our services, which indicates a real desire among the programs to measure themselves against practical international benchmarks through independent audits," he said.
Lloyd Apter, affiliate manager for BrightShare, said that affiliate programs occupied a critically important role in the successful operation of online gambling companies, and that this made professionally defined standards and business processes essential.
"eCOGRA has provided BrightShare with a valuable level of confidence that our program can and does meet the highest industry standards," he said. "The ongoing review and inspection service helps us to maintain those standards for the benefit of our primary customers - the affiliate marketer and the operator."

"$500,000 a year for 20 years, I could live with that. Hell for 20 years I wouldn't even have to work, and if I played my cards right. I could live beyond that time on the interest alone collecting in my bank account. Nice win for the bet size. The casinos in Vegas for sure know how to pay out huge jackpots at the right moments. Makes me want to get to Vegas sooner than later to see these mega jackpots in action. Even though it does make me wonder what the lump sum option was, if such an option existed with IGT."READ
"I would imagine any of the casinso would allow you to withdrawal via BTC as long as you didn't deposit via a method that was also a wallet. Like example if you deposit via Neteller, Skrill, or Pay Pal. I would imagine that they'd want to have you withdrawal back to your wallet. Otherwise if it's a one time use things like a Pay Safe Card or mainly just a strictly deposit option. I would imagine that the casino would be open to sending you, your winnings by BTC. Mainly becuase I would think that sending you BTC would be cheaper than any of the other methods available to them. I know Extreme, Bovada, and Slotocash all have BTC withdrawal options, as I'm sure many others do. I would guess it wouldn't hurt to ask support."READ
"Circle or Coinbase are both very good options as there are very small fees for getting your coin. Compared to LocalBitCoin or Paxful where the fees can get downright steep. Circle will do you just fine as long as you don't buy too frequently or try to cash out large sums of coins at once. Otherwise if things do get scary with Circle, you can always change it up and use both Coinbase and circle interchangably. "READ
"Good morning Rena and Jade, hope all is well. Really honestly Coinbase and Circle will do you just fine if your not getting a large sum of cash into either wallet. The need for a separate wallet probably isn't necessary. Also if you diversify how you cash out your coins if you do happen to come into a large sum of a win. Will probably help you not get your account closed. Like let say you win $2,000. Cash that out into your wallet. As long as you cash out oh say $500 a week, then know your going to go shopping at Walmart anyways. Buy a gift card for the amount you need at CardCash.com you'll probably be ok even with a big win. (seriously check out card cash anyways, not only do you get gift cards at a discount, but they'll give you even more of a discount for buying the cards in BTC) Just a few hints. Really, honestly the average player probably won't have an issue with either BTC exchange. It's just the big winners are the ones who I fear for. Hopefully your enjoying BTC. It really is a nice way to play at online casinos, mainly because you won't have to worry about your bank asking so many questions. (Especially with those foreign descriptors) Even if they do, you can tell them with confidence that the money you got was from sale of currency. Mainly because Coinbase is legal in the US."READ
