Milestones & Expansion
In 2023, Alpha Affiliates achieved a 30% increase in affiliate partners, consolidating itself as a preferred choice among affiliates.
Amidst this rapid growth, the company launched new casino brands Rakoo, OnLuck and Casino Infinity. These additions to its portfolio not only highlighted the commitment to providing diverse gaming experiences, but also contributed to its status as a dynamic force in the iGaming industry.
Geographical market expansion was a key strategic move in 2023, with Alpha Affiliates making significant strides in new markets, including France, Italy, Belgium, Greece, Norway, Slovenia, Slovakia and Hungary. This diversification not only broadened its reach, but also ensured a more comprehensive and inclusive gaming experience for iGaming enthusiasts worldwide.
Partnerships, Collaborations & Awards
Alpha Affiliates celebrated its 11th anniversary in style by hosting a €200,000 Affiliate Race for its partners, and a milestone party in Cyprus, as a testament to the company’s commitment to fostering a sense of community with its affiliate network. This was further demonstrated by new partnerships formed with niche media entities, including Affpapa, Affiverse Media, Global Gambling News and SiGMA World. These collaborations bolstered the company’s reach and ensured its presence at the forefront of industry discussions and developments.
Alpha Affiliates also proudly secured the Affpapa Award, and the team’s participation in six major conferences, including iGB London, SiGMA Dubai, iGB Amsterdam, SBC Barcelona, SiGMA Cyprus and SiGMA Malta, further cemented its status as an industry leader and innovator.

From October 15th to Christmas Day – December 25th – Alpha Affiliates hosted the Affiliate Race, where top partners competed for prizes and Hall of Fame spots. With over €200,000 at stake, the Top 30 partners in terms of Net Gaming Revenue (NGR), will soon receive their well-deserved rewards.
