Affiliate event series set to return to Europe

The Affiliate Grand Slam series is all about relationship-building in the best possible environment for deal-making handshakes. Great relationships are at the very centre of the affiliate sphere in iGaming.

It is nigh on impossible to be successful in affiliation without maintaining healthy bonds with key collaborators, and forging new ones. This is especially true in iGaming, a very interdependent scene in most respects.

The Affiliate Grand Slam is an outstanding event on the iGaming calendar that brings together the best of affiliates with a select number of potential collaborators that are keen to establish or cement a great working relationship.

The next edition of Affiliate Grand Slam will take place in Kiev, Ukraine. This regional, cultural, and business centre was chosen because its ideal location – the upcoming Affiliate Grand Slam will be all about accessing the immense potential of the European and CIS markets, especially as the two converge. The fundamental formula that defined previous editions of the Affiliate Grand Slam remains: 200 elite affiliates will join a select grouping of operators, capped at six.

The event has mastered the art of introducing outstanding content, but also maxes out on the more leisurely front. There is no better setting for the creation and upkeep of crucial relationships in this sphere.

TonyBet, V.Partners, Yobetit, Multilotto and Buffalo Partners have been confirmed as hosts of this marquee event, which is also sponsored by HasTraffic.

iGathering21 makes waves

Pool Party makes a splash amongst industry elite this month on the 16th of June, 2018 in Malta.

Hugo’s  Infinity, a glamorous rooftop pool location in St. Julians, set the scene for an exclusive, invite-only iGathering.  The momentous event, hosted by Malta Blockchain Summit and CryptoFriends, was generously sponsored by AliQuantum Gaming and Hipay, along with partners CoinTelegraph and ICObench.

Guests were treated to an art exhibition and Blockchain Auction, before savouring gourmet barbeque and supping on freshly-made mojitos as they lounged by the pool.

Some of the most renowned iGaming-and-crypto-industry experts, enthusiasts, and investors mingled under the warm afternoon sun as cocktails flowed and business cards exchanged hands – providing just the right balance of priceless business opportunities and premier entertainment.

The lavish blockchain event also offered its VIP guests a great line-up of speakers, including keynote speaker Olaf Carlson Wee, Founder of Polychain, talks from ICO representatives and an ICO Pitch, providing a valuable experience for VIP’s hoping to build solid relationships within the Block tech sphere.

The previous iGathering, held at the beautifully-restored Magazino Hall, found success on the home front when it returned from Sweden for its 20th edition.

5 Tips on How to land a job in iGaming without experience http://simkaconsulting.com/index.php/blog/item/429-tips-on-how-to-land-a-job-in-igaming-without-experience http://simkaconsulting.com/index.php/blog/item/429-tips-on-how-to-land-a-job-in-igaming-without-experience

5 Tips on How to land a job in iGaming without experience

If you are fresh out of school or a professional in a different industry, you might want to continue reading this article where we will give you some tips on how to land a job in iGaming without previous experience.

#1 Tip: Getting the chance for an interview

Most of the time the HR department will receive tons of CV's for the same position. It will be time consuming for them to read from top to button every single CV. Use a short phrase at the beginning of your CV where you will describe why you are the best for the job. Make your CV stand out. 

# 2 Tip: Experience and knowledge are two different things

If an employer is looking for a role to fill in his company where no experience is required, that doesn't mean you don't need to know anything about the role.

Lets say you are applying for a position within the Fraud and Payments department. You need to know the definition of fraud, ways to prevent, types of fraud, what is payments, type of online payments etc. 

You might also get a test to spot fake documents, cards etc. Knowledge about this field is essential.

#3 Tip: Know the Company

Preparation for the interview involves knowing the Company you are applying to. All information about the Company you will find it on their website. 

E.g. When the company was founded, where it is licensed, languages offered, products they offer, Terms and Conditions etc.

#4 Tip: Read the job description

Very important. You must carefully read what your responsibilities will be. During the interview use your answer around the experience/knowledge you previously gained that involves your future duties.

#5 Tip: Dress Code

iGaming industry workplace provides most of the time a very relaxed and creative environment. But, that doesn't mean jeans are allowed during an interview. Casual - smart is always the way to go.

To get a job in iGaming, you must be willing to relocate to different countries where companies are licensed and have their offices. Malta, Cyprus, Gibraltar, Curacao are some iGaming hubs. 

Tips:To find a job, you can use iGaming recruitment agencies, go directly to the website of the company or via Facebook groups.

Currently there have been many openings for different language Customer Support roles, such as: Swedish, Danish, Finnish, Norwegian, Dutch and German in Malta. So, if you speak the above languages then you are in luck and much easier to enter in this field.

Good Luck!
