In the event of violation of this provision, EMPIRE777 and the respective gambling product website affiliate that has played with, shall have the right to void all play and eliminate any earned commissions applicable from such play and terminate your registration as an affiliate and this Agreement, as well as void any future play at EMPIRE777.
3.10 You are not allowed to concurrently maintain both affiliate and referral relationships with EMPIRE777. Violation of this provision grants EMPIRE777 the right to unilaterally terminate either or both affiliate and/or referral relationships.

3.11 Restrictions – Persons residing within any of the excluded territories as set forth in our Sites, as well as persons under the age of 18 or the legal age of majority in the player’s jurisdiction (“minors”), are not allowed to register with or play on our Sites. Our Sites are not designed to attract children, and we take certain measures to block underage persons from registering with the Sites. Therefore, we shall reject your application if we determine that any of your Affiliate Sites are designed to appeal to minors, targeting persons residing in excluded territories and, as such, are not suitable for the EMPIRE777’s Affiliate Programme.
4. Affiliate Tagging
4.1 You are only responsible for directing customers to the EMPIRE777 website.
4.2 Only properly tagged customers can be assigned to an affiliate. Should an affiliate tag be improperly inserted into the affiliate site or not properly received by the EMPIRE777 web server, the resulting customer registration and purchases will not be assigned to the affiliate. Therefore it is your responsibility as an affiliate to ensure that all links are properly tagged.
5. Revenue Sharing & Payment
5.1 You will earn commission from EMPIRE777 Affiliate Programme as each plan that we provided. The more real money players & revenue you generate, the more you will earn. You will be paid a recurring profit from your players month after month for as long as their gaming activity continues.
5.2 EMPIRE777 will pay out a revenue share on the Commissionable Earnings generated by each customer attributable to the affiliate, as defined by EMPIRE777 Affiliates Programme commission structure, provided that you maintain in your account as an affiliate, at least five (5) Active Wagering Members in any given calendar month.
5.3 Active Wagering Members refers to customers that reach a minimum wagering turnover amount equivalent to Two Hundred U.S. Dollars (USD200.00) each in any given calendar month.
5.4 Commissionable earnings will be subject to commissions as calculated using the EMPIRE777 Affiliates Programme commission structure in force from time to time. Commissionable Earnings are calculated from the Net Revenue multiplied by the affiliate revenue share percentage, derived from at least five (5) Active Wagering Members in a calendar month.
5.5 All amounts are calculated and paid in accordance with the Company’s reasonable and good faith means of tracking player activity. Our calculations of commissions due to the affiliate under this Agreement shall be final and binding on the affiliate.
5.6 Charge-back: A credit card holder discovers irregular transactions made on his/her Credit/Debit Card, which was not authorized by him/her. The credit card holder then requests his/her bank to reverse these charges. Charge backs relate to fraudulent use by a third party of the credit card holder's card or card number.
5.6.1 Should your referred player process a charge back, the disputed or charged-back revenue generated by your referred player will be forfeited and will not be included for purposes of computing the commission due to you for the current month.
5.6.2 Should this deduction of the accumulated revenue exceed your current amount due, your balance will then revert to a negative balance, and you will have to earn revenue to cover the charge-back before you can start earning revenue again.
5.6.3 Unlike with a player making a big winning, which only lasts one month, a charge back will stay due until the revenue generated by your other players has covered the amount due.
5.6.4 We understand that this might be frustrating to the affiliates, but it has to be made clear that EMPIRE777 can only pay out from a percentage of their profits, not fraudulent revenue.
5.6.5 Complimentary Money, Free Money and Other incentives refer to those amounts credited to the account of customers. As players have not purchased these amounts EMPIRE777 cannot pay commissions.
5.7 Negative earnings are carried forward to the next month. Should the affiliate close the month with a positive balance, payment will be issued if it meets the minimum requirements and commissions will be paid on the positive balance.
5.8 The Commissionable Earnings of the affiliate, calculated based on commission structure, will be earned on all transactions that the affiliate referred player undertakes with the Company, as long as the affiliate remains a member of this affiliate Programme.
5.9 All affiliates are subjected to administrative and marketing costs incurred directly for the acquisition of members. These costs may include: payment fee, promotion bonuses and platform, license fee.
5.10 The commission you earn under this Agreement are exclusive of all charges, taxes (including Value Added Tax, where applicable), duties, fees, excises or tariffs. Such charges, taxes, duties, fees, excises or tariffs shall be for your account at the rate prevailing at the time the commission is paid. For the avoidance of doubt, you shall be solely and primarily responsible for any taxes imposed on the commission by the tax authority in the jurisdiction in which you are domiciled for income tax purposes, but in the event that the Company is required to withhold any tax payable by and imposed on you by a tax authority in any jurisdiction where the Company operates from or in, you shall be solely responsible for the payment of such tax and you shall not be entitled to recover any such tax from the Company.
