The cyber-ink of our last article about King Billy and his tendency to get awarded hasn’t even dried up yet and here we are with, you guessed, one more award for His Majesty.
King Billy, First of His Name, Rightful Ruler of the Kingdom, Guardian of the Realm and Protector of the Players (and Collector of Awards we may humbly add) has done it again. He has got one more award. And this time, it’s the biggest of them all in the Affiliate Universe.
King Billy Casino brought home its finest piece of silverware yet, the “Best Casino Affiliate Program” Award of this year’s iGB Affiliate Awards, which took place on Saturday, February, 8, 2019, at The Brewery in London. Moreover, the Servants of the King did it in style, by beating the likes of giants like Betsson and Mr Green.
We asked (again!) Ruslan Legenzov, the King Billy Casino’s Head of Affiliates (or “Lord of Affiliates” as the casino’s protocol dictates) to share a few words with us about this outstanding distinction and this is what he told us: “Guys, first of all, I must confess to you that this has been so much beyond expectations and words that I have wondered for a few moments whether I live in the Matrix.
But it’s true, definitely true! All of us here at King Billy Casino are naturally ecstatic and speechless. Personally, I would like to thank all the people in my department who have worked unbelievably hard in order to earn the respect and trust of our affiliates. To Vlad, Olivia and all the rest of our Lords and Ladies in the Department… thank you!
And, of course, we would like to thank, from the bottom of our hearts, our affiliates. All this could not have been possible without you guys! Thank you Cristina, David, Milica, Alanias, Rasmus, Milena, Nenad and the 500+ rest of our affiliates, partners and friends! This one is for you!”
This prestigious award brings King Billy’s awards tally up to four in less than a year:
- iGB 2019 Awards Best Casino Affiliate Program
- AskGamblers 2018 Awards Best New Casino
- AskGamblers 2019 Awards Best Casino – 3rd place
- AskGamblers 2019 Awards Player’s Choice Casino – 2nd place
So, anyone willing to bet that King Billy wouldn’t make it up to five or six until the end of the year? We know we wouldn’t!

Rightlander wins “Best Tech for Affiliate Programmes” at IGB Affiliate Awards 2023
Following the launch of their innovative Smart Workbench, Rightlander, the advertising and affiliate compliance monitoring specialist, have won the award for ‘Best Technology for Affiliate Programmes’ at this year’s IGB awards ceremony in London. The annual award, dubbed the Oscars of the iGaming affiliate market, recognises the most successful businesses in the gambling industry.
Rightlander is a state-of-the-art advertising and affiliate compliance platform that allows advertisers and networks to identify potentially non-compliant content across different territories. It does this by scanning affiliate content from within the target market, looking for events or conditions defined by clients and regulators, and sending alerts when it finds content that meets those conditions.
According to the judges, who praised the submission’s clear evidence and figures showing customer adoption and cost savings, Rightlander’s offering is “a very strong piece of technology which leads the industry in protecting affiliates, operators and ultimately players and ultimately makes the industry better for being in it.”
Ian Sims, Founder of Rightlander said “We are extremely happy to have won the Best Tech for Affiliate Programmes and this is a milestone moment for Rightlander. We developer/marketing folks love to throw around words like “game changing” and “AI-driven” but when you win an award for “Best Tech for Affiliate Programmes” and it’s one of the judges calling it a “game changer”, that is quite an endorsement.”
Over the past 5 years, Rightlander has scanned tens of millions of webpages to help advertisers identify non-compliant advertising by their marketing partners to protect their brand and regulatory licenses.
Casino Guru wins IGB Affiliates Safer Gambling Initiative of the Year
Casino Guru has won the IGB Affiliates recognition in the Safer Gambling Initiative of the Year category.
Casino Guru has won the IGB Affiliates Awards distinction in the Safer Gambling Initiative of the Year category, an award granted to affiliate services with an unfaltering track record in their commitment to raising player protection standards and contributing to the industry’s ability to better understand gambling-related harm.
Casino Guru underwent a thorough review, which included a look into how the company sought to educate and protect players beyond statutory requirements and the active steps taken to introduce players to a safer gambling journey in every market they engage with.
The assessment distinguished Casino Guru for its comprehensive efforts in responsible gambling and gambling harm prevention as captured by the Gamtegrity, the unifying home of all responsible gambling and consumer protection projects and initiatives launched under the Casino Guru banner and name.
Spearheaded by Šimon Vincze, Casino Guru’s Sustainable & Safer Gambling Lead, Gamtegrity reunites some of the company’s most impactful projects and initiatives geared towards raising standards for the entire industry insofar as problem gambling, player behavior, and harm protection are concerned.
Vincze hailed the IGB Affiliates distinction as a deserved and important milestone in the company’s ongoing efforts to provide the industry with guidance on how to better protect consumers and provide players with assistance on their journey to picking the best and most responsible industry operators.
“QUOTE by Šimon”
I am thrilled from this recognition as it includes most of the projects that I work on. However, this achievement is a reflection of work throughout the departments of Casino Guru and I feel honored to translate it to the rest of the industry. Safer Gambling is undersized in affiliate space, and it is great that iGB motivates companies to compete in it.
Casino Guru’s Gamtegrity project reunites the company’s Global Self-Exclusion System (GSES), an ambitious cross-border initiative designed to create a comprehensive global mechanism that enables players to exclude themselves from regulated gambling markets and focus on recovery.
Casino Guru has similarly focused on creating tools that assist and help vulnerable players to address their problem as well as find help, extensive global information and easy access to treatment options.
The company has also leveraged its industry expertise to create the Casino Guru Academy, an ambitious undertaking which understands how important it is to educate industry professionals about best practices in customer support, casino bonuses, safer gambling, and other important areas.
Not least, Casino Guru’s ample effort and experience in maintaining responsible gambling standards that go beyond national legislation have led the company to set up the Casino Guru Awards which seeks to distinguish prominent operators that share the company’s core values in providing consumers with the safest gambling possible.
The Safer Gambling Initiative of the Year distinction is evidence of the strong and meaningful impact Casino Guru has had in bettering responsible gambling standards and seeking to actively assist players who may struggle with gambling-related problems or suffer gambling-related harm.
