AskGamblers Awards Show and Charity Event Go Virtual, and Will be Held in June 2021
The organisers made a decision to turn the AskGamblers Awards show and the Charity event into virtual ceremonies – both taking place on 17 June, 2021. The Awards have been celebrating the best of the best in the iGaming industry for 3 consecutive years and, this time, the show will be held as a virtual gala event, due to COVID-19.
It’s official – the AskGamblers Awards ceremony will take place on 17 June, and will be held online, due to the ongoing pandemic. The health and well-being of all the participants are of utmost importance to the organisers of the AskGamblers Awards event and it is, therefore, being held in a manner that is both safe and consistent. All our partners will also be able to attend the AskGamblers Virtual Charity event which will happen on the same day, and will be dedicated to raising funds to support charity organisations.
AskGamblers Awards have been celebrating the best in the industry for more than three years. So, once again, the Awards will allow all iGaming aficionados to have their voice be heard and help select the best of the best for the year 2020 in the categories, listed as follows:
Best New Casino
Best New Slot
In addition, there will also be an award for the Best Affiliate Manager and the Best Partner.
The winners of all categories will be chosen through the joint efforts of the AskGamblers team of experts and players’ votes, while a separate award called Players’ Choice will depend solely on players. As for the Best New Casino and Best New Slot categories, only the ones that have been listed on AskGamblers website between March 2020 and March 2021 will be eligible for these two Awards.
AskGamblers will traditionally host a Charity event to raise money for the good cause, only this time, the event will be virtual. Dedicated to raising funds to support charity organisations, the event will give all partners a chance to contribute to this cause and, in doing so, to make a difference.
Back in January 2020, we managed to raise €66,900 during the AskGamblers Charity night. Namely, €50,000 was directed to UNICEF through Catena Operations Ltd. to help fight COVID-19, while NORBS foundation and “Zvončica” Parent organization of children with cancer received the rest of the funds. It was all possible thanks to our casino partners who participated in the event.
As General Manager AskGamblers, Denis Ristic, said: “We’re here to celebrate the best of the best in the betting and gaming industry, and ever since the COVID-19 pandemics interfered in our plans, we decided it was time to move the events online. After all, health and wellbeing of our guests are currently our primary concerns. And, although the AskGamblers Awards show and the Charity event will be very different in comparison to their previous editions, we can promise entertaining affairs!”

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.
