Metal Casino Grand Opening

New online casino bets on millions of “loyal” Metalheads worldwide

 

Fans of Metal music and casino gaming now have the perfect platform for their interests. Metal Casino is launching the world’s first gaming site for hard rock enthusiasts.

Targeting hundreds of millions of Metal fans worldwide, and having already partnered with some of the genre’s major stars, Malta based Metal Casino has been created by a tight team of gaming, music and marketing experts, including former executives at Apple, Microsoft, Universal Music, Spotify and Mr Green, who are also heavy guitar music lovers.

As a pioneer among a new generation of online casino 3.0 operators powered by GIG’s holistic platform service provider iGaming Cloud, Metal Casino will rock the sector with its great portfolio of games and appeal to a niche community – including 400 million Metal fans on Facebook – via a vertical marketing strategy.

The platform will offer games from leading providers such as NetEnt and Microgaming and will launch through front-end partner FAST TRACK Solutions.

Metal Casino has already contracted some major artists from the Metal scene as affiliate partners. Only a small selection of traditional casino affiliates will be partnered, as Metal Casino avoids the revenue share squeeze most major operators suffers from.

Clas DahlenChief Marketing Officer Clas Dahlén, formerly Mr Green’s Country Manager, Sweden says: “Creating a vertical marketing strategy, based on social media, collaborating with Metal artists as influencers and vertical Metal media is a game changing way to penetrate the marketing landscape out there.

“With a loyal fan base, Metal Casino therefore becomes highly marketing efficient. Being relevant creates loyalty and maximizes the retention and ROI,” Dahlén continues.

Dahlén says the teams’ experience as well as statistics from the music industry proves that the Metal community is the most active on streaming services, and they are the most dependable and loyal people in the world.

Metal Casino is set for an international launch in the UK, Germany, Sweden, Norway and Finland. Communication will be only in the “universal language of Metal”, English.

Members can join the Metal Casino’s World Tour, which is one of the site’s games and loyalty programmes. Its own soft currency, MetCoins, will enable members to acquire exclusive tickets and customised merchandise in the Merch Room and get a chance to meet the world’s biggest Metal bands and artists backstage.

We have decided to take our joint head-banging sessions to a new level and create some real magic. Collaborating with FAST TRACK Solutions as Front End developers and casino room management we have a strong partner for years to come,“ Dahlén continues

Clas Dahlén describes their different approach: “Metal Casino speaks out loud, we are the underdogs and we don’t give a sh*t about our competitors’ conventional marketing or offers. Keeping it real and staying true to our beliefs is something most people strive for. Few live up to it. Our members can count on us. As our brand platform describes, we are true, relevant and dedicated to our members and our beliefs.

“We are Metal Casino, we go all in for the fans!

GAV: Hello Anna, first of all, tell us and our readers a bit about yourself. How did your career start in the industry? What determined you to engage in this activity and start working at Portomaso Affiliates?

Annie: Hello, I am Annie I am 27 years old and I come from the sea capital of Bulgaria – Varna. About me I can say that I am positive, ambitious and communicative. A little bit more than a year ago I didn’t know that iGaming exist, but I was in love with marketing and I knew, that this is what I want to do. Then I found a job in an affiliate company and on day one I felt that iGaming is what I want. I had a team leader who was very experienced and smart, he thought me everything about the iGaming business and helped me with understanding how the business works from the core, and I am very grateful about that. I was dreaming to become an Affiliate manager, so I started applying, for me it was really big challenge, because I’ve never thought that I will have to move from Bulgaria, I’ve been on an internship in Belgium, but it was only for three months. Portomaso Gaming came in my life, by offering me the dream job, I accepted immediately, I moved to Malta ten days after I got my acceptance letter and now here I am – in Portomaso Tower in St.Julians’s in Malta building the future of PortomasoLive.com with the incredible team, that I am part of.

GAV: Portomaso Affiliates is the affiliate program for PortomasoLive.com online casino. What do you think is the key aspect that affiliates appreciate regarding your affiliate program?

Annie: Portomasolive.com is unique, because it is owned by Portomaso Gaming which owns a product live casino, we stream directly from the two land based casinos owned by the company. Regarding affiliates, the key aspect is that we are open to offer them different promotions, marketing materials, demos, etc. We aim high, and we want to have trustworthy partners to help us walking the path from a new casino to a successful and winning brand.

GAV: Could you fill us in on your current offer for affiliates and maybe a brief description of your program?

Annie: We just launched our affiliate programme along with the online casino, and I would be happy to tell you more. Portomasolive.com is the diamond in the crown on Portomaso Gaming. The company that owns Portomasolive.com is very big, as I mentioned earlier, two land-based casinos, product Live Casino (streamed directly from the two casinos). The company was 100% focused on B2B, but now with the online casino we aim to build brighter future for Portomaso Gaming. We would like to thank to our partners from NetRefer who provided us with a great affiliate platform. We want to make the work with affiliates clear, simple and fun of course. We can offer many and different promotions to our affiliates including ones involving live casino games. Also, I am happy to announce that we can offer to our affiliates up to 45% Revenue share!

 

Portomaso Affiliates

 

GAV: What markets does Portomaso Affiliates target, and what makes it stand out in the ever growing crowd of casino affiliate programs?

Annie: We decided to start with DACH and Swedish markets, this is because we believe, that they are successful and wining markets. As I said this is just for beginning, in future we plan to step into UK and the rest of the Nordic countries. As I mentioned before, Portomasolive.com has its own live casino product and as the interest to live casino is growing, we have the advantage to explore and expand more with promotional campaigns for the casino in general and exclusively for affiliates.

GAV: Since the London Affiliate Conference is almost here, we would like to ask your opinion on this event, are you guys attending these conferences or are you going to be in London? How about the other affiliate conferences and the Nordic Affiliate Conference?

Annie: iGB – the company that organizes those events is very professional in my opinion, I already have been in Berlin for BAC in 2017 and I was impressed with the way that event was organized. I will attend London Affiliate Conference, but from the team of Portomasolive.com it will be only me, because big part of the team is going to attend ICE- Totally Gaming. I look forward to meeting the future partners of Portomasolive.com. Our focus now is LAC, because we need to start building our relationships with Affiliates.

GAV: Where do you think the online casino industry will be in 3 years, and of course, on which scale do you see Portomaso Affiliates?

Annie: Three years is a very long time, and the iGaming industry is dynamic and changing every day, but in a good way. I believe more markets will move towards re-regulation and it is natural for a company like ours to pursue those opportunities. Even if it means that the tax costs are going to be higher for us, it also enables us to reach out to larger audience. About Portomasolive.com I see it as a popular brand, that players know and trust, expanded and respected online casino with high acquisition and great conversion.

GAV: Tell us a bit about your team?

Annie: Of course! My team is incredible it is made of people who are positive and ambitious. We are currently about 40 people working for the online casino and each of us is aiming high. I am quite new, I started working here four months ago, but I was accepted very well, I easily became part of the team, because the people working here made me feel comfortable. Also, I find something really important here – the support that we give to each other as a team, because no matter how many ideas you have or how strong and ambitious you are, if your team doesn’t support you, it will be hard to achieve your goals, I am lucky to be part of team who supports me. I was very nicely surprised when I saw the synergy in the team, everything is so well organized, and everyone is professional, so I really enjoy how the work goes smoothly, dynamic and fast.

GAV: Since Central and Eastern Europe offers a large pool of successful affiliates in the industry, do you think that this region is somehow overlooked by brands that are not applying for licenses in the demographic and are there many super-affiliates that you manage coming from this region?

Annie: I am happy to see that Central and Eastern Europe are developing business in the field of iGaming. Right now, we are focused to build strong relationships with affiliates, it doesn’t matter if they are super-affiliates or small ones. For us, every serious business partner is valuable.

GAV: Do you have any advise you would like to offer to newbies who are looking to venture into this great industry!?

Annie: Never ever give up! If you have a dream follow it, be ambitious and always keep in mind that iGaming makes the dreams about career come true!

GAV: Who is your favorite celebrity and if you’d have to a pick a destination in Eastern Europe, where would you travel?

Annie: That’s easy – Alex Turner of course! He is part of the UK band “Arctic Monkeys”, he has amazing voice and the songs of the band are awesome. Eastern Europe, this is tricky one, because the first thing coming to my mind is to say Varna, Bulgaria as it is my home, but if I have to pick different destination in Eastern Europe I would say the Dracula’s castle in Romania, I think it would be awesome experience!

GAV: Where you wouldn’t want to travel?

Annie: One thing that I love to do is to travel, there is no place in the world that I wouldn’t like to visit. Every place has its own history, beauty and culture that I would love to explore.

GAV: Tell us your opinion about GAV(GamblingAffiliateVoice.com)?
