GiG Extends Partnership with Merkur
Gaming Innovation Group Inc. (GiG) has unveiled an extended collaboration with leading German operator Merkur, fortifying their commitment to compliance through the use of GiG’s cutting-edge affiliate marketing tool, GiG Comply.
Safeguarding Brand Integrity in Germany
In the regulated German iGaming landscape, adherence to stringent guidelines is paramount. This extension underscores Merkur’s dedication to safeguarding their brand’s reputation while complying with the intricate regulatory framework. As a prominent subsidiary of the Gauselmann Group, Merkur’s portfolio spans a wide spectrum of gaming offerings, including virtual and traditional slot games, arcades, casinos, and sports betting.
GiG Comply stands as an innovative automated marketing compliance solution, meticulously scanning web content for iGaming code red words, links, and regulatory requisites across multiple jurisdictions. Employing a sophisticated rules engine, it assesses real-time snapshots of affiliates’ campaigns, equipping operators with insights into promotional content associated with their brands.
Tailored Flexibility for Market-Specific Precision
The adaptability of GiG Comply empowers operators to establish customized criteria and checklist parameters, seamlessly adaptable to market-specific stipulations. This dynamic tool ensures operators’ continued compliance, offering a shield against potential pitfalls.
The colossal success of GiG’s iGaming affiliate enterprise, GiG Media, positions it as a global leader in the affiliate marketing realm. Collaborating with partners to drive qualified traffic through diverse channels, including SEM/PPC and social media, GiG Media’s reputation is further underscored by its strategic partnership with News Corp, a media conglomerate that caters to millions of online readers through premium websites like The Sun and talkSPORT. Integrating AskGamblers into their arsenal post-acquisition from Catena Media solidifies GiG’s position as an industry frontrunner.
