The digression

I was born in a small town. And before landing in affiliate marketing just over 4 months ago, I had a hard time finding a well-paid job.

Now, I wouldn’t call myself an expert, because every day I learn something new. I’m gonna tell this story in my own words, and have to apologize because sometimes I have doubts about some technical terms 🙂

Affiliate program & Offer

CPA — if you want revenue for the first deposit by players you’ve brought.

Revshare — if you want lifetime revenue share from the casino profit (some percent from the lost bets).

From my experience, I know that СРА model is much more beneficial, i.e., with additional payouts for deposit. That’s a quick and easy way.

While looking through offers at, I ran into Vulkan Casino with a $65 payout for the first deposit. That’s the highest payout I’ve found. And when I talked to the manager of this affiliate program, they increased the payout a bit. Other affiliate programs after I’d mentioned that I’m planning to run push campaigns –they offered me only $45-50.

3. Budget

First, I was buying traffic at the lowest and recommended prices. I did it during the whole day, but, perhaps, everyone does it

The next day, I increased the bid and was buying traffic from 18:00 till 23:59 GMT +2; conversions were really high.

4. Ad Creatives

That’s what I wrote for ad copy; in Russian, the lines are rhymed:

Title: Spin the wheel, get the gift

Description: Join the Vulkan and get the money in your pocket

I didn’t invent anything, thanks to for creative ideas.


Landing page

I used this landing page:
