The negative balance of a High-Roller will be reduced by future positive net revenue that they generate in subsequent months. A negative balance will not be increased by future negative Net Revenue unless the High-Roller meets the above-mentioned qualifying criteria in subsequent months. You will be able to view all adjustments in order to track the High-Roller’s net breakeven point. Adjustments will be made at the end of each calendar month based on the cumulative revenue for the month.

If the Affiliate has concerns about the balance due as reported in the estimates, they must intimate the Company within fourteen (14) calendar days by explicitly stating their reasons for disagreement. If an Affiliate fails to notify the Company within the stipulated time frame, it shall be considered an irrevocable acceptance of the balance owed for the agreed period.

  4. Late converted payers will be considered qualified if they make their first deposit within 30 days from the termination date of the agreement or a certain marketing campaign unless the agreement was terminated due to a material breach by the affiliate. However, if the agreement was terminated due to a material breach by the affiliate, then the late converted players will not be considered qualified under any circumstances.

7.12 PARTNER does not compensate for incentivized traffic in any manner, nor do we participate in schemes where customers receive or are promised a percentage of the CPA (Cost Per Acquisition) as an incentive to become a customer.
