It is often observed that life links people together from the very beginning. Goscinny and Uderzo of Astérix le Gaulois. Mick Jagger and Keith Richards of the Stones. And yes, King Billy and AskGamblers. So, it is no coincidence that King Billy Casino is ready for a three-peat at the AskGamblers 2020 Awards.
Back in 2017, when King Billy Casino started business on St. Patrick’s Day (the audacity!) few would have expected the phenomenal rise of the casino to the echelons of online casino greatness. After all, according to modest estimations, there is a new casino launch on planet Earth every day.
However, there was something more to that “baby King” than met the eye. A combination of marketing, strategy and product not only helped the casino grow through its teething phase without problems, but also gave it its first award: Best New Casino in the inaugural AskGamblers awards back in January 2018.
Fast forward one year and the, by then, “teenager King” has grown enough to win a place or two in the heart of players and judges alike. In January 2019, the casino lands 2 more awards at the second AskGamblers Awards: Best Casino 3rd place and Player’s Choice Casino 2nd place.
So, here we are now, with a “mature King” this time. King Billy Casino has been shortlisted again for Best Casino in the third AskGamblers Awards. We reached out to King Billy CEO (and “First Lord of the Kingdom” according to internal protocol) Volodymyr Harkusha for a few words. An, understandably, elated Volodymyr told us:
“How does the adage goes? Once is chance, twice is coincidence, third time is a pattern? Frankly speaking, it has never been chance or coincidence with the wonderful team of King Billy Casino. It has rather been the result of hard work, ambition, team spirit and the most talented bunch of people I have ever worked with!”
So, will King Billy make it three in a row? By paraphrasing the mutual funds disclaimer, we must say that past performance in awards is no guarantee of future results. But, between you and us, would you wager that His Majesty King Billy would not win again? We wouldn’t, even with a wager x1.
The AskGamblers Awards have become one of the most respected awards in the iGaming world. The Awards are organized by AskGamblers, itself an award-winning portal which provides accurate information about online casinos worldwide, as well as the opportunity for players to resolve their issues with casinos transparently.
King Billy Casino is a new generation online casino, available in 6 languages (English, German, Russian, Finnish, Norwegian and Japanese) with an impressive record in awards and an amazing variety of games and features. King Billy has prioritized the creation of a superb user experience focusing on the myth of King Billy and his Kingdom and treats all players with the specialness they deserve.

Casino Guru establishes Awards Project to recognize greatest industry achievements
The Casino Guru Awards is the latest project by Casino Guru inspired by guiding the dialogue on consumer safety, and it reflects on the company’s ambition to acknowledge and reward achievement in the gambling industry, specifically in the sectors Casino Guru has contributed to –responsible gambling and consumer education. Casino Guru Awards is the result of this long-term commitment to making gambling safer, fairer, and more accountable for all participants.
Drawing on years of experience as the defining affiliate service in the industry, Casino Guru has transcended its core model to make global changes to the industry, including through its Global Self-Exclusion Initiative, Casino Guru Academy, Fair Gambling Codex, and other initiatives.
Now, the company is stepping up its responsibilities of a gambling industry custodian with the Casino Guru Awards which will celebrate the most committed operators in industry and the professionals who shape its future. The inaugural edition of the event is designed to raise awareness for the Awards and help the most deserving companies serve as good role models industrywide and reach a broader audience.
To participate, companies may nominate themselves through the end of November 2022. Casino Guru will also select worthwhile nominees that will be added to our list in a process that is fair, transparent, and above all else, distinguishes and focuses on merit. A shortlist will be announced in December2022with the official ceremony held online in February 2023. All decisions regarding the outcome of the event will be carried out by hand-picked judges.
Casino Guru Awards will feature judges from some of the biggest companies that are well-established names in the industry, including Kindred Group, Betsson, Gamban, Epic Risk Management, Gordon Moody, and more. The panel will include close to 15 external judges and five of Casino Guru’s own specialists.
Commenting on this project, Daniela Kianicová, PR & External relations Lead at Casino Guru, said: “Casino Guru Awards is a natural continuation of the efforts Casino Guru has put into making gambling safer, fairer, and more transparent for everyone. We worked on the Awards and the categories with the idea to emphasize on areas of the industry that are crucial to consumer safety and can always be improved on.
Our commitment to safer and responsible gambling is unflinching and I am honored to have the opportunity to work alongside the industry’s most distinct professionals to make gambling safer for players. It’s clear to me that Casino Guru Awards will be a benchmark for companies in the industry and a high accolade for any entity that wants to help write the gambling world of tomorrow.”
Casino Guru Awards will run in several categories which will focus on a mix of business achievements and consumer needs. The company feels strongly that achieving a level of excellence across these verticals will result in a better gambling industry for all. The categories include “The Fairest Bonus Policy,” which assesses the fairness of Bonus T&C’s and whether a bonus accounts for breaching applicable rules by accident, among other and equally important criteria.
“The Fairest General T&Cs” category will focus on how a casino’s T&Cs ensure that customers are protected and safeguarded and that they do not fall prey to predatory or hidden rules and details. In true Casino Guru spirit, “The Most Impactful Social Responsibility Initiative” will focus on those operators and companies who understand the importance of responsible gambling and problem gambling prevention.
There is a separate category that will independently assess “The Best Implementation of RG Tools” and “The Most Transparent Casino.” Another important category will be “The Most Effective Handling Complaints,” which is another area where the Casino Guru team feels improvements can be made, giving operators an incentive to operate in a clear and consumer-centric way. Casino Guru is experienced in this particular area having established the Casino Complaint Resolution Center which has thousands of closed cases already.
Last but not least, there is “The Voice of the People” which will be decided by the players, without any intervention. You may find out more about the Casino Guru Awards on the official page, including details about submitting a nomination, who the judges are, and what to expect in the months that lie ahead.
