Feb 10, 2014, 09:00 ET from Optimal Payments Plc.

LONDON, MONTREAL and NEW YORK, Feb. 10, 2014 /PRNewswire/ - Optimal Payments (LSE AIM: OPAY), a leading global online payment solutions provider, is pleased to announce that it has been awarded with the Best Payment System for Affiliates Award, one of the top recognitions at the iGB Affiliate Awards on February 7, part of the London Affiliate Conference events from February 7-9, 2014.

The iGB Affiliate Awards are an important part of the iGaming calendar. Voted and judged by industry members, these awards are truly representative of who is the best in the space from affiliates to operators and their partners. Winning the Best Payment System for Affiliates Award further demonstrates the excellence Optimal Payments delivers to its customers in both the gaming payments market and the affiliates industry and recognizes the benefits that using the NETELLER® eWallet brings to many affiliates globally.

"This award marks an end to a successful week at both the LAC and 2014 ICE Totally Gaming, where Optimal Payments exhibited," said Joel Leonoff, president and CEO, Optimal Payments. "We are very pleased to have been selected for this industry award and are especially proud of being selected for the Best Payment System for Affiliates Award and of the entire NETELLER affiliate program. Affiliates are an important part of our NETELLER business and we continue to invest in providing the best solution for our partners."

Joining the NETELLER affiliate program makes business sense to both affiliates and merchants alike. Affiliates gain an additional income stream from conversions they are already sending to merchant sites (they earn commissions twice from the same player conversion - for the lifetime of the player). Merchants can also benefit from collaborative affiliate marketing campaigns that will help develop their brand exposure to a consumer base that spans worldwide as well as deliver incremental acquisition revenue.
