The nominees for the yearly sports betting and gaming awards were announced. The conference will gather representatives from 2000 iGaming and sports betting operators.
The best-performing companies of the year are the focus of the awards. The contest has 45 award categories that include affiliates, suppliers, specialists, and payment providers. The winners will be announced at a glamorous ceremony on the last day of the SBC Summit Barcelona.
There are 45 categories in the ninth edition of the Awards.
The award for the most prestigious trophy in the event is the Sportsbook of the Year. It competes with some of the industry’s leaders. Betsson Group, which is this year’s leader in total nominations, is likely to be its main rival in the category. Many of the same names are listed in both the Casino Operator of the Year and Casino Operator of the Year categories.
The old continent is divided into four categories for North, South, East, and West European operators. The casino and sports categories are for the rising star award.
Operators are not the only ones facing stiff competition. There are also 21 supplier awards. Sportradar and BetConstruct have seven nominations each, closely followed by Stats Perform, Playtech, and Pragmatic Play with five each.
