Matthew Parvis, the Chief Creative Officer for iBus Media was happy to accept the award and congratulated his team for winning the “Best Affiliate in Poker” award for 3 consecutive years. In a statement, Parvis said
Every single person that works on PokerNews pours their heart into it; from the design and development team, to our fantastic affiliate managers, right through to the entire editorial department and to all of our different national editions. It’s truly a group effort and we are really proud of what we have been able to achieve so far.
The online poker industry continues to grow at a rapid pace and one of the main reasons behind the growth is the massive number of affiliates involved in the promotion of online poker. The competition is fierce as affiliates from across the globe compete to take first place and establish themselves as the number one poker affiliate in the world.
Parvis believes that PokerNews will continue to dominate the poker affiliate market as the company plans to innovative and adopt a unique marketing approach to stay ahead of its competitors.
iBus Media continues to expand and establish itself as a market leading in the gambling industry. The group has also launched CasinoSmash, a casino affiliate website that has done extremely well in its short history and was shortlisted as one of the best casino affiliates currently in the industry.
