LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM -- (Marketwire) -- 12/26/12 -- Following two months of intense effort by thousands of participating affiliates, the Euro Partners 'My Thai' Competition came to a heated finale earlier this week, as several affiliate members went head to head in their tenacious, last-ditch efforts to nab the number one spot. In the end it was Jonas E. of Denmark, aka 'NetBetMed', who emerged victorious.
The promotion, which targeted both new and existing Euro Partners members, challenged affiliates to compete for the largest percentage of increased traffic over a two-month period across the program's three verticals - casino, poker and sports-betting.
Touting the tagline, 'you can work from anywhere, why not Thailand?' the My Thai Competition was created with the online affiliate marketing world's 'work hard- play hard' mentality in mind. In the words of Euro Partners' Head of Affiliation, Davin Jacobson, 'We wanted to create a promotion that would appeal to that unique sensibility and pleasantly remind our affiliates why they chose to get into this industry in the first place.'
'NetBetMed' will be receiving an all-expense paid, seven-day trip for two to the luxurious Asara Resort at Hua Hin, Thailand. In his post-win interview, the 11-year industry veteran mentioned that 'although you (the affiliate) have the ability to make your own hours and don't have to punch in your timecard at 7:30am every Monday morning, the last thing this business will offer you is easy money or a lax lifestyle. It requires a lot of skill, hard work and discipline to keep up with the competition.'
The winner of the competition's unofficial 'bad beat story' goes to the affiliate 'Ocelot' whose weeks -long reign at the top of the leaderboard was eventually overturned and culminated in a respectable yet prize-less third place finish. Runner-up 'Easyweb', who bumped his way up from third to second place at the last minute, will be taking home a Mac Book Pro Air.
