We continue the Affiliate Interviews series, with another online gambling affiliate sharing his own story about his journey into the industry. Today we catch up with Philip, of Madaboutcasinos.com a really great online casino comparison site.
Name: Phil Goulding
Hometown: Widnes, Cheshire
Living in: Widnes
Favorite Food: A spicy curry
Must Read Book: Bravo Two Zero
Profession/Job title: Account Manager
GAV: Hi Philip, first of all tell us and our readers, a little bit about yourself, we want to know who Philip really is! How did your career start in the industry? Since when are you active at Madaboutcasinos.com (Madabout Media Limited)?
Philip: As my bio says, I’m Phil, I’m 34 from Widnes, Cheshire UK and I started in the iGaming industry back in 2011. MadAbout Media is owned by my friend of many years, Andrew Edwards. Having qualifications and background in I.T Hardware, software & networking, when we discussed me joining the company I was excited to see the other side of things, including website development/optimisation, social media marketing and SEO.
GAV: Since there are thousands of websites and portals in this niche out there, where do you think Madaboutcasinos.com stands now and what is that plus that the other portals don’t have?
Philip: At the moment madaboutcasinos.com is just plodding a long in the rankings but still sending quality traffic to the brands we advertise. Other the next few weeks/months the site will have a major overhaul, a new design, easier usability and better optimised for mobile traffic.
GAV: How do you see the online casino market/industry at this moment? How about sports betting or online bingo?!?
Philip: I think the casino market is still very strong, as previously mentioned madaboutcasinos.com is still sending traffic, as does our other casino portal; Mobileslotsites.com. We don’t really advertise sports betting apart from a small sports section on madaboutcasinos.com so couldn’t really answer that. Bingo, we are mostly and well know for madaboutbingo.com, and just like madaboutcasinos that site will also have major overhaul in the coming months.
GAV: In your opinion what are the strong points of Madaboutcasinos.com and what makes it stand out from the other niche websites/directories?
Philip: Madaboutcasinos.com has 100% unique content and we are in daily contact with affiliate managers to try and keep our reviews fresh and as updated as possible. We also try and get unique offers to advertise to our fans/follows via our social channels.
GAV: Could you tell us a bit about the beginnings of Madaboutcasinos.com and Madabout Media Limited?! We know that you (Madaboutcasinos.com) are a very established portal. How was the portal started and most of all what difficulties you have to overcome at the beginning?
Philip: Madabout Media Ltd came about from Andy and his first portal Madaboutbingo.com. When I came onboard with Madabout Media Ltd one of my first tasks was helping with the design and build of Madaboutcasinos.com. There wasn’t really any major problems with getting madaboutcasinos.com up and running, we had a template for the design and SEO strategy that already worked for madaboutbingo.com and we implemented them into the new site.
GAV: We have surfed your website and found some great quality content. Are you writing it by yourself or do you have a team of people writing for you? How many reviews do you have on the site?!
Philip: We use 2 teams of dedicated writers who visit the sites we advertise. They sign up and visit the different rooms and play on the different games available so they can write an in-depth and unbiased review. We have over 250 reviews on Madaboutcasinos.com, over 300 on Madaboutbingo.com and almost 300 on Mobileslotsites.com. As most affiliate programs have Bingo, Casino and Vegas style Slots, we spread the brands over our sites to target specific players.
GAV: How about the online marketing and SEO of the Madabout Casinos website, do you have someone in house for that our you outsourced it?
Philip: The SEO for all of our advertising and brand sites is done in-house by Andy who is a LRT Certified Professional and another Madabout Media staff member of Keeley who is a LRT associate. SEO is non-stop and things change on a daily basis. So rather them than me haha.
GAV: How do you manage to keep all the Madabout Media Limited websites fresh and relevant, when a lot of fluffy and nonsense appear on the Internet non-stop?
Philip: As mentioned earlier we are in contact with affiliate managers on a daily basis so we can run with the latest site promotions and special offers as soon as they go Live. Our reviews are updated as soon as possible and mailers are sent out to our database. We run competitions ourselves via our social channels, but this is mostly for our brand sites as they sponsor several sports teams, including a wheelchair rugby team, a transplant football team and a professional rugby league team.
GAV: We are pretty convinced that you receive messages from Affiliate Managers on a daily basis showcasing their best products. You, of course select them by the brands they work with. What are your thoughts on how a real Affiliate Manager-Affiliate relationship should be built, and how not?!
Philip: Andy has been in this industry since 2006 and myself since 2011 and the best affiliate mangers we work with are the ones who send a professional message from day one & are always available to lend a helping hand. Over time you become friends so the relationship works on a personal level as well as professional one. On the other side you have affiliate mangers who send the same copy and paste message to our of emails in one go and almost demand to be on our site and placed in the best positions.
GAV: How do you see the future of the online casino/gambling industry? For instance, will it become a truly global phenomenon?
Philip: Online gaming will go from strength to strength, certainly since the emergence of mobile & tablet gaming. Years ago it was expensive to own a PC but mobile phones and tablet are so widely available you can literally play anywhere, anytime. I’d say its already a global phenomenon, and with new markets opening it will only get bigger.
GAV: Tell us one change that you want to see in the online casino industry?!
Philip: More transparency and regular payment dates would be great. It’s not really a problem but there are still some brands/affiliate programs that make it hard to access stats and see exactly what traffic you have sent and how the payment has been broken down to make the final commission total.
GAV: Do you have any advise you would like to offer to newbies who are looking to venture into this majestic industry!?
Philip: If you have started, then see it through! The benefits are fantastic, get to travel to some fantastic cities and meet people from all over the world. Of course you have to put the work in, you can’t just build a site and be No.1 in Google. You need to know the market, the do’s and don’ts and have a goal to aim for.
GAV: How about iGaming/online casino conferences, do you attend any of them? If so, which one is your favorite and what is your most fun experience?
Philip: I love the conferences, its great to catch up with affiliate managers & other affiliates i have become friends with over the years, plus there is always scope to meet new contacts & make new deals. In the 5yrs I’ve been in the industry, I’ve visited conferences in London, Dublin, Barcelona, Amsterdam and Berlin. Amsterdam is lovely city but for me, London (LAC) is the biggest and best.
GAV: What do you think the chances are for Eastern Europe to become a potential gaming hotspot in the near future? Where do you think the region must improve upon?
Philip: Anywhere in the world has the potential to become a gaming hotspot. As long as the individual countries are regulated to the high standard set by other gaming countries, I don’t see a problem.
GAV: Where would you like to travel in Eastern Europe, any favorite country or region?
Philip: I would travel anywhere, mostly because i love city breaks haha. Before I started in the industry I believe there was a Budapest Affiliate Conference that got high reviews. I’ve heard good things about Prague, Bucharest and Krakow among others….but mostly from people who have been on stag do’s to them cities haha.
GAV: Where you wouldn’t want to travel in Eastern Europe ?
Philip: I’ve never given it much though, as long as it was safe to travel then i’d be on the plane if there was a conference
GAV: How about a favorite celebrity or a mentor, do you have one?
Philip: Favorite celebrity would have to be a sports personality. At the moment Coner McGregor or someone from the past, probably Joe Calzaghe. Two big personalities who have rose to the top of their disciplines through hard work and dedication.
GAV: Tell us your opinion about the Gambling Affiliate Voice?
Philip: I visit Gambling Affiliate Voice from time to time to check the ‘Certified Websites’ page, as an affiliate it’s great to know who the trusted brands are and that’s one thing ‘GAV’ can help me and other affiliates with.

Go Big or Go Home: High Roller Casino Bonus Canada Explained
Within the dynamic landscape of Canadian online casinos, high roller bonuses exemplify the adage, “Go Big or Go Home.” Crafted for players comfortable with substantial deposits, these bonuses elevate the gaming journey, offering the prospect of amplified winnings and an intensified online casino experience.
Understanding High Roller Casino Bonuses
High roller casino bonuses, often dubbed as ‘VIP rewards,’ are exclusive promotions tailored for players unafraid of wagering substantial amounts. These incentives, which can include extra cash or free spins, are directly linked to the magnitude of their deposits.
In the context of the Canadian online casino industry, the importance of these bonuses cannot be overstated. They wield immense influence in attracting and retaining high-value players, who significantly bolster the casino’s bottom line. By extending high-roller bonuses, casinos effectively motivate these individuals to maintain their patronage, fuelling the sector’s expansion and profitability.
From the player’s perspective, these bonuses open the door to the prospect of amplified winnings and an enriched gaming adventure. Gamblers can relish extended gameplay, explore exclusive titles, and even relish personalized assistance. Consequently, high-roller bonuses are pivotal in shaping the dynamics of the Canadian online casino arena.
High-roller casino bonuses forge a symbiotic relationship between casinos and their most daring patrons. This synergy is not only financially rewarding for both parties but also elevates the overall gaming experience, affirming the significance of these bonuses in the Canadian online casino landscape.
Unlocking the World of High Roller Casino Bonuses
High roller bonuses, those coveted incentives within the realm of online casinos, come in an array of forms, each bestowing its unique set of benefits. Let’s delve into the various types of these alluring bonuses that cater to the diverse tastes of high-stakes players.
This stands as the most prevalent form of high roller bonus. Casinos generously match a portion of the player’s deposit, with percentages ranging from 50% to a staggering 200% or more.
In the world of high stakes, resilience is key. Some casinos extend cashback bonuses to their esteemed high rollers. It translates to a percentage of the player’s losses or deposits being thoughtfully returned to their coffers. As an example, consider a 20% cashback bonus. It graciously offers solace by refunding $200 to a player who may have faced a $1,000 loss.
High rollers with a penchant for spinning the slot machine reels are not left in the lurch. Free spins are often part and parcel of their bonus package. These free spins gift players the chance to revel in slot games without denting their pockets. It’s akin to a risk-free opportunity to secure tangible winnings.
Loyalty begets rewards. Players who exhibit steadfast allegiance to a casino, whether through regular gameplay or substantial deposits, are accorded exclusive loyalty bonuses. The perks span the gamut from free spins and deposit boosts to exclusive tokens of appreciation and coveted invitations to premier events.
No Deposit Bonuses
While relatively scarce, some casinos extend the olive branch to high rollers with enticing no-deposit bonuses. These bonuses grant players a treasure trove of free funds or spins upon mere registration, sans the need for an initial deposit.
Unlocking the Gateway to High Roller Casino Bonuses in Canada
Earning the coveted status of a high roller casino bonus Canada and unlocking the gateway to these exclusive casino bonuses entails satisfying specific casino criteria, a task that entails a blend of precision and perseverance:
High roller bonuses in Canada beckon to those ready to invest significantly. The requisite minimum deposit surpasses standard bonus thresholds, making it imperative to wield financial prowess.

Selecting the Optimal High Roller Bonus
Choosing the most suitable high roller bonus necessitates a methodical approach to ensure it aligns seamlessly with your gaming proclivities and objectives. Here are pivotal tips and factors for contemplation when making this consequential decision:
Scrutinize the Offer
Initiate the selection process by thoroughly assessing the bonus proposition itself. Methodically examine the bonus quantum, percentage, and any supplementary advantages such as complimentary spins or cashback. Strive to strike a harmonious equilibrium between an enticing offer and manageable wagering prerequisites.
Immerse yourself in the intricacies of wagering prerequisites, a pivotal determinant. Elaborate bonuses often accompany more rigorous playthrough obligations. Ensure that these stipulations are realistically attainable within the confines of your gaming approach and financial means.
Distinct games contribute disparately to the fulfilment of wagering prerequisites. Ascertain whether your favoured games are considered eligible and discern their respective weightage. Certain bonuses may impose constraints on particular games or extend reduced contributions.
The bonus percentage may fluctuate contingent on the magnitude of your initial deposit. Calculate the sum you are comfortable committing to ascertain an efficient leverage of the bonus.
Loyalty Program Synergy
Gauge the synergy between your high roller status and the casino’s loyalty program. Certain establishments furnish exclusive advantages and expedited reward progression for VIP participants.
Bonus Activation Codes
Verify whether the bonus activation necessitates a specific code. Neglecting this imperative step may culminate in the forfeiture of the bonus.
Prudent consideration of the bonus’s duration is imperative. Ensure an ample timeframe for the fulfilment of wagering requisites, circumventing any undue haste.
Repute and Integrity
Delve into the casino’s reputation and credibility. Peruse reviews, verify licensing credentials, and solicit insights from fellow players to substantiate the casino’s standing.
Contemplate the quality of the casino’s customer support. High roller status may occasionally necessitate prompt assistance; hence, a responsive support framework is indispensable.
Conclusively, align your selection with your distinctive gaming inclinations and proclivities. Opt for a bonus that harmonizes seamlessly with your preferred gaming genre and strategic approach.
The process of choosing the optimal high-roller bonus within the Canadian online casino landscape necessitates a systematic and informed approach. Key considerations encompass a comprehensive evaluation of bonus propositions, a meticulous comprehension of wagering prerequisites, contemplation of game eligibility, and an assessment of the synergy with loyalty programs. By carefully analysing these facets, high rollers can make judicious selections that not only elevate their gaming experience but also optimize their potential for substantial winnings.
