ottery retailers and other businesses that drive enrollment in the Pennsylvania Lottery’s iLottery online play platform can earn a share of the profits through an affiliate program with Income Access, Paysafe Group’s marketing technology and services provider. The Income Access affiliate platform will power the new program, which will also be managed by the company’s affiliate team.
PA iLottery features online games played on a computer, tablet or mobile device that offer chances to win up to $250,000. The games can be played from anywhere in Pennsylvania.
“This affiliate program provides an excellent incentive to promote PA iLottery,” said Lottery Executive Director Drew Svitko. “For 24 months, qualified partners can earn a profit share of up to 20 percent for each iLottery player they refer.”
Qualified partners will earn a 10 percent profit share for players who sign up for iLottery through in-store marketing efforts, or a 20 percent profit share for players who sign up through digital marketing efforts.
Although applicants do not need to be a Pennsylvania Lottery retailer to join the affiliate program, existing Lottery retailers are urged to participate.
“We want existing retailers to understand that building awareness of iLottery can be good for their bottom line,” Svitko added. “In other states that offer online games, there has been growth in lottery game sales at retail.”
The Pennsylvania Lottery affiliate program will be managed using Income Access’ affiliate platform, which has won eGaming Review’s ‘Affiliate Software’ B2B Award four times since 2013. Income Access’ team of lottery affiliate managers, which managed the Michigan Lottery affiliate program from its launch in January 2018, will also manage the Pennsylvania Lottery program directly.
Tara Wilson, General Manager at Income Access, said: “We’re excited to partner with Pennsylvania Lottery to launch the U.S. state lottery industry’s newest affiliate program. Our technology and affiliate managers have a strong track-record supporting global lottery brands’ customer acquisition.”

Upon approval, registered partners will receive printed leaflets with their unique ID and a leaflet holder to display in-store. Electronic assets and a unique referral tracking ID will be provided to those partners planning digital marketing and promotion efforts. Partners will be able to promote that new iLottery enrollees will receive $5 in free play.
Partners can manage their affiliate account through a web portal featuring reporting tools and will receive dedicated customer support.
“New iLottery players can only register once, so do not miss the opportunity to receive credit for referring players,” Svitko said. “Remember: the more iLottery players you refer, the greater the potential profit-sharing earnings.”
