Slots Temple has completed the application process to seal their membership into Responsible Affiliates in Gambling, the independent body aiming to raise standards in the affiliate sector.

Following the successful navigation of the membership process and meeting all the entry criteria, including a third-party social responsibility audit, Slots Temple have been inducted into the RAiG association, alongside a pledge to provide the safest gaming environment for their users.

Fraser Linkleter, CMO of Slots Temple, said of the application: “It is essential in today’s market that affiliates are as professional and trusting to players as casino operators. Being part of RAiG is a big step for Slots Temple to evidence our commitment to our users and build trust in the brand.

“The process itself is stringent to say the least and quite rightly so. Delving deep into an affiliate’s operation, how we conduct ourselves, how our staff are trained in responsible gambling, how our ongoing processes have been set in place and actioned, and most importantly, how we present ourselves to protect the public.”

The igaming affiliate adds that the milestone also has much wider and positive implications, adding extra validity to their recently announced free to enter tournaments and aiding player confidence, while also building the overall business value.

Linkleter continued: “Going through this process means we are perfectly positioned for future license applications. Our site and business operations are subsequently in a better place following the development work undertaken after the feedback and recommendations received during the audit procedure. This work will continue and stands us in good stead for our expansions plans.”

Set up in 2019, the RAiG aims to foster wider initiatives in the UK affiliate marketing sector to promote social responsibility and help create a safer gambling environment. Slots Temple now join a list of accredited associates including founding member Better Collective, Oddschecker and Racing Post.

Cian Nugent, chairman of RAiG, commented: “We are very pleased to welcome Slots Temple as our newest member and are looking forward to working with them to shape the future of compliance in the affiliate market.

“In such a fast-moving industry it is of the upmost importance to remember the end-user, the players, and to promote best practices throughout the industry to protect the consumer. This starts with the operators and the affiliate operators, so building our community of members will help to establish the trust which is essential to our philosophy.”
