Sometimes, even the most successful people feel they have failed somewhere. Something is not going well. This is perfectly normal feeling. Especially in the igaming affiliate business. There is many of you can relate to these signs and this is something to be proud of.
Just because you are not a millionaire, or you’re not living in a huge palace and even if you don’t drive an expensive car, does not mean that you failed.
Behold, here are 20 signs to prove that you are successful even if you do not feel like it.
- Your connections aren’t dramatic
The dramatic relationships widespread during our insurgent time. As we get older we grow, and we will become more mature. The relationships are not as dramatic as in the past, we no longer reply for any comment and we don’t hit back on everything. You now have learned to communicate properly, this is one of the cornerstones of success.
- You are no longer afraid to ask for help and support
You already know that if you ask for help is not a sign of weakness. In fact, you don’t even have to put an effort to it. You now understand you can not become successful alone even if you are a lone wolf. You start working with a team to achieve your goals.
- Your expectations are higher
You do not tolerate bad behavior – nor from others, nor for thyself. You gather people around you who are responsible for their actions. Even from a distance you recognize energy vampires, and you don’t waste precious time on them.
- You can easily let those things go, that do not make you happy
You do not care about things that do not make you happy, because now you know it will not take you forward. If an unwanted task may arise, you will rather outsource it to someone else who will finish it.
- There are some moments when you look in the mirror and you are happy with who you are
Ideally, every moment should be like this. But if every moment isn’t like that, you know the way that you traveled, and you know exactly how many victims there are in it. You love yourself and you appreciate the effort you made.
- You already know that the setbacks and failures are part of the development
You know that not everyone is able to successful 100% of their time. This is not realistic. Life is all about victories and losses, you do not give up on the case of small obstacles, and you know that the failures are there to teach you how to get better. You know that this is also part of the road to your success.
- You are surrounded by people who will do the things that need to be done
You start recognize those people who are really on your side, and filter out those who only pretend. You now recognize the signs of betrayal as well, and you can keep yourself away from such people.
- You do not complain (at least not as much)
Because you know, that there isn’t really anything complain about. Unless something really happened, something really frightening or may be you lost something great, but inside you know that you do not have time to complain. Actually, your are grateful for your achievements, so you feel more gratitude for your gains than for the losses.
- You can celebrate the successes of others
Just because the other person is successful, you know that does not cause failure for you. You literally applaud those people who have already reached that level, or at least go on the road on the same path on which you are. This positive energy that you give to others, can only result in even more positive energy for you.
- You are passionate
You never back down. You always grind, but in the meantime you are enjoying it. You know how you can contribute to the world, you know what you can give, or how talented you are. And the great part is that is now don’t just know it, you give into it.
- You are constantly set targets
You almost drown in lukewarm water, if there are no exciting things going on around you. You feel this when there is no need to do anything. You constantly set targets for yourself, and you constantly challenge yourself, it’s the excitement that drives you.
- There are goals that you’ve already achieved
You already know what to do and what tools to use to achieve your goals. You know the taste of victory and failure. And if something might still not play out the way you want, you can remember your past achievement, and this gives you more strength.
- You become empathetic
You know that if someone has no empathy, his soul is dead. Empathy is love and positive energy to the world. Successful people know this. They also know that the successes should give something back, so many of them become givers. Givers of knowledge, givers of fortunes, either way, they give something back for the less fortunate.
- Your love becomes deeps, and you come closer to others with an open heart
Let others love you. You know that loving someone sometimes becomes risky and could be daunting, but it’s the only thing that really drive a person, you are no longer afraid of rejections.
- You start to hate the role of being a victim
In fact, this is completely not your story, it’s far away from you. Do you remember him, perhaps – in case you have ever felt it before, but you are not willing to be sacrifice for anything.
- You do not care what others think about you
You now know you can’t meet everyone’s needs. You know that the general social expectation are not built on success. So you wow you stay loyal to yourself and you love the person you are or become.
- Always pay attention to the good things
If you were to pay attention, life can be full of disappointments. Therefore, you have learned that monitoring negative things just takes away your energy. Instead, now you focus on the positive things you care about, and you strive for, these can bring good things in your life.
- You now accept that some things can’t be changed
You can already face the fact that there are a lot of things you can not change. However, you can change the way you look on these things. If you can spot the good thing in the bad things, you’re successful.
- You constantly change and progress
You are always seeking the same, get better and be better – whether physically or mentally, even within profession. You are constantly working on yourself and do not accept anyone to tell you that “You are not able to do this!”
- You are happy
This is the ultimate definition of success. Now it does not matter how much money is in your bank account, what kind of house you live in, what car you drive. You appreciate what you have, and it makes you happy.
If you do not find yourself related to all 20 sign, there is no problem. Just think about how many people are running around out there in the world, who don’t related to any of these points. You’re already on it or on the road to achieve it. Therefore, always look forward, and believe me, the more you strive the sign you will be able to relate to.

Casino Hacks– the world’s first Casino Bonus & News TV!
New online casino affiliate combines the successes of MTV, Top Gear and Late-Night Talk Shows with casino games entertainment
Online casino fans now have the perfect platform for their interests in slot machines, blackjack, baccarat and roulette. Casino Hacks.comis launching the world’s first TV show for online casino players.
Targeting millions of online casino fans worldwide, and having already partnered with some of the major online casino operators and casino games suppliers, Swedish-owned Casino Hacks has been created by a tight team of former gaming operators, producers, marketing & SEO experts, including former executives at MTV, Mr Green, Bethard, Raketech, Pokerstars and Metal Casino who are also passionate online casino lovers.
Casino Hacks Founder Clas Dahlén was named ‘Sweden’s Best Marketer’ in 2014 when heading up Mr Green in Sweden, and is also the former Founder and Brand Strategist behind Metal Casino. The host of the show, Jonas Lutteman, who worked in the editing rooms of MTV in London will lead the entertainment and competitions in the CASINO HACKS show as well as manage Casino Hacks’ Twitch Program.
Even before the launch, Casino Hacks has already contracted major online casino operators and casino games suppliers to partner up on the affiliate platform and sponsor the TV show. It is a perfect platform to reach casino players and high rollers in a confined online casino games channel. Only a selection of online casinos will be partnered initially, as Casino Hacks only will work with the best online casinos offering the best casino bonuses as a trade off to a new, more beneficial, business model for the partnered online casino.
Clas Dahlén, the CEO, or ‘The Sales Guy’, as he would rather be referred to, says:
“Casino Hacks is here because we believe that online casino players, across the world deserve a higher standard of live entertainment. Looking for tips, hacks and great casinos and the best bonuses should not be like going through the Yellow Pages! We believe this part of the casino experience should reflect all the fun and action one can expect from an online casino today.
“It’s now my mission to market and sell this amazing website. I’ll be a sales-focused CEO who will introduce our outstanding service to casino players and make sure the content is entertaining. That is my full-time job for now!
“Coming from the operator side we felt it was time to do something new in the affiliate sector, creating new energy and with great design, broadcasting and all the fun entertainment that the online casino experience truly is about.
“The Show will reveal the latest online casino news, broadcasting casino reviews, new slots and interviews with interesting industry people such as the best Twitchers. The daily show will naturally run fun and rewarding competitions continuously.”
Casino Hacks is set for an international launch this week in Canada and New Zealand, followed by Australia, Iceland and six other territories in 2020.
Clas Dahlén describes their pioneering approach:
“Casino Hacks speaks out loud. We are the new kid on the block, and we don’t give a damn about our competitors’ conventional marketing or offers. Keeping our language real, trustworthy 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 creative, honest and passionate in our communication with our members.
“We are Casino Hacks and we deliver winning Entertainment!”
Do the right thing
James Ashton from Find My UK Casino says that affiliates and operators must be responsible in their approach to engaging players over the coming months
As an online casino affiliate that prioritises responsibility and compliance above all else, I was saddened to receive emails from several of our operator partners regarding a small number of publishers that have looked to leverage the on-going global crisis to their advantage.
These emails are reminding affiliates of the terms and conditions which they agreed to when partnering with the operator, most notably that all marketing activity undertaken must be responsible and compliant at all times.
For those that are not, they risk having their accounts terminated with immediate effect. And rightly so. Professional online casino affiliates do not need to rely on a global crisis to drive traffic to their sites – if anything, they should be taking additional steps to protect their players.
Since the UK lockdown came into force last week, we have seen traffic numbers increase. This, of course, is to be expected as more people are now working from home or not working but being required to stay at home.
This is good for us and other affiliates, and equally positive for our operator partners. But we all have to take a responsible approach and ensure that we go above and beyond to provide players with the information they need to make an informed decision about if and where to play.
This includes ensuring bonus terms and conditions – significant and full – are correctly displayed while also creating explainers about wagering requirements, the tools available to help keep in control of their play and how to ensure they play at licensed and reputable brands.
We are prioritising pages such as these over high-volume ranking pages that are proven to drive players from the SERPs to our pages and ultimately to the online casino brands we recommended. As a result, we have seen retuning site visitors increase over the past two weeks.
One of the most effective ways online casino affiliates can protect players at a time when site traffic and demand is likely to increase – at least over the coming weeks and months – is to only work with the best online casino brands out there.
These are not necessarily the most established brands or those that hold multiple licences, but those that go the extra mile to educate players about responsible gambling and provide them with additional features to manage their play.
As an affiliate focussed on the UK market, we only work with those that hold a UK Gambling Commission licence. Others don’t do this and some even actively promote brands that are not UK licensed to UK players on pages about Online Casinos Not On GamStop.
This is irresponsible on many levels, but amid the current climate is putting the most vulnerable at greater risk than ever before.
We also work very closely with our operator partners to ensure that all the content we create around their brand(s) is 100% compliant, and also seek feedback on other aspects of our site to ensure we are doing everything we can to meet the highest possible standards.
This is always important but particularly right now as people find themselves with more time on their hands but perhaps with less disposable income to spend. That’s not to say they shouldn’t play online casino, but affiliates and operators must do all they can to ensure they play responsibly.
There is clearly an opportunity to target the growing number of people being confined to their homes, but affiliates and operators must do the right thing and ensure they do not take advantage of the situation and use is to their advantage.
Affiliates and operators should be investing time and resources into helping players enjoy online casino play if that is how they want to spend their time and money, but in a way that is healthy and within their means both personally and financially.
So although I was sadden to receive emails from operators stating that affiliates should not be leveraging the current global crisis and using it to their advantage, I was encourage to see that they had taken serious steps to identify, prevent and punish those that are.
That being said, it is really down to affiliates to do the right thing in the first place and it seems that despite the tremendous efforts being made by regulators, watchdogs, operators and publishers, a small minority continue to act irresponsibly, doing untold damage to the rest of the sector.
Leading betting affiliate sets sights on Virtual Sports market
In a historic shake up of the sporting calendar not seen since the Second World War, all major sporting events have been put on hold indefinitely.
With markets in turmoil, and traffic to online bookmakers and affiliate sites alike taking a significant hit, there is a lot at stake. Sporting events will eventually return, although it’s unclear exactly as to when.
It means that the iGaming community as whole needs to look to viable alternatives, although some feel that the present predicament actually provides opportunity.
“We’re aiming to turn this unique situation into one where we can adapt, learn, and hopefully come out of the other side in a much stronger position”, says Eskil Kvarnström, CEO of Leadstar Media.
Viable alternatives to sports betting
“We’re quite lucky in the fact that we’ve always set out to hold a varied portfolio of products that set their focus across sports betting, online casino and a number of international markets,” says Kvarnström.
Indeed that is the challenge for many betting affiliates and online bookmakers alike. How they act and react now could leave a pivotal mark in the immediate and distant future alike.
“One of the areas where we’re already seeing a significant upturn is in the realm of virtual sports, and that’s exactly where we’re setting part of our focus for the time being. It’s providing us with a great opportunity to improve in fields that might before have gone overlooked.”
A flagship product of Leadstar Media, BookiesBonuses.com, aims to provide the best overview of UK bookmakers for its users based in the British Isles, but also further afield.
“While Bookies Bonuses is primarily geared towards providing a great deal of information on online bookmakers, it is one of our sites where sports betting takes centre stage, although online casino does play an ancillary role in what it has to offer.”
It’s important to be reactive
Many sports betting sites are already seeking to develop their virtual sports betting products. The likes of Bet365, Betway and Coral have arguably the most advanced virtual sports packages on the market at present, while the BetVictor sign up offer has recently been updated to highlight its availability to players interested in virtual sports.
“We’re actually surprised that more online bookmakers aren’t yet seeking to promote their virtual sports packages given that we already know many of the major football leagues in Europe in particular are going to be out of action for at least another month or so. But that’s where we come in”, states Kvarnström.
The role of the affiliate
“In many respects the virtual sports market goes overlooked by many players who are interested in sports betting, simply because there is a constant availability of real-life events taking place all over the world at any given time.”
“We see our role at Leadstar Media not only to provide the best products for the consumer, but in being a key conduit of disseminating valuable information on distinctive areas of the sports betting and online gambling sector. It’s not just about what is on offer, but also how particular aspects of the market like bonuses and deposits methods fundamentally work in practice, and providing that information accordingly,” says Kvarnström.
“In many respects the virtual sports market is an untapped resource ready for development, especially in such unique times. Our company has a lot of experience in nascent markets across the world, such as Africa and India, so we feel confident we can inform and advertise to our users everything that virtual sports have to offer”.
In such unique and uncertain times, it certainly provides food for thought in how the iGaming sector as a whole will look to react, adapt and develop, and more importantly, what the landscape will look like when we come out of this period on the other side.
