Where is the capital of the King Billy Kingdom? The good people at King Billy Casino keep their lips sealed about it – but we know that at least for the night of January 17, their capital was Belgrade, Serbia. Because, it was there, in a spectacular gala in the Hyatt Regency hotel (also broadcast live to the rest of the world) that King Billy landed the big one.
AskGamblers Awards. Best. Casino. 2019.
It is one thing to be winning industry’s big awards when you have decades of experience under your belt and your name has been a synonym for gambling from the early 20th (not 21st) century. But it is a very different thing to be doing it when you were founded only as recently, as St. Patrick’s Day, 2017.
So, in less than 3 years, King Billy Casino has proven its mettle in the AskGamblers Awards by winning Best New Casino in 2017, Best Casino 3rd place in 2018 and now, Best Casino in 2019. We reached out to Volodymyr Harkusha and Ruslan Legenzov, King Billy Casino CEO and King Billy Casino Head of Affiliates for statements.
“It is difficult to express it in words!” an excited Volodymyr says holding the prestigious trophy. “You just cannot put into words, the hard work, the team spirit, the sheer talent and the persistence of our people which brought us this amazing award. Through the good times and the bad times, our staff is there, always passionate, positive, active and effective. I am blessed and proud to be working with them!”
Ruslan Legenzov adds: “The saga of the King continues! Recognition that not only comes from the judging committee, but also from the players themselves is a double proof of what King Billy Casino is offering. We thank everyone and we continue. The best is still yet to come!”

The AskGamblers Awards are organized by AskGamblers, an award-winning portal itself, 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.
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!”
Bojoko crowned Affiliate of the Year at EGR Nordic Awards
Popular online casino listing site fends off stiff competition to take home the trophy at prestigious awards ceremony
The Bojoko team is celebrating once again after being named Affiliate of the Year at the prestigious EGR Nordic Awards 2021.
This is the second EGR award that Bojoko has taken home after being crowned Casino Affiliate of the Year at the hotly contested EGR Operator Awards 2020.
Bojoko fought off stiff competition from some of the biggest names in the affiliate industry including AskGamblers, Better Collective, Blexr, Catena Media and the Gambling.com Group.
EGR judges said it had been “another excellent year” for Bojoko and that its SEO performance and overall conversion “really shines”.
The EGR judges added: “A more unique idea than most affiliates with great growth and sustainability. A very clever and new type of affiliate that is showing great success. Well done!”
Bojoko allows online casino operators and game developers in the Nordics to create their own dedicated listing page and tell their story through their own words, images and videos.
Bojoko members, of which there are now 30,000+, then rate and review each casino and game and share their honest opinion about the experience they receive.
During the judging period Bojoko built out its team dedicated to the Nordics which led to a 10x increase in unique site visitors and a 25x increase in registered Finnish players.
Joonas Karhu, Chief Business Officer at Bojoko.com, said: “We will need to find more space for our trophies after scooping our second EGR award in as many months but seriously, the entire team is thrilled how have been recognised for our work in the Nordics.
“The Nordics remain a key focus for us and we see plenty of opportunity to drive growth from the region by providing players with our award-winning online casino listing product and service.
“Our mission from day one has been to help players quickly and easily select online casinos through transparency and community feedback and it is a concept that has proved to be hugely popular.
“I would like to thank the EGR judges for recognising our efforts and successes in the Nordics by crowning Bojoko Affiliate of the Year 2021.”

Online casino comparison site takes home its first EGR Operator Award off the back of a hugely successful year
The party is continuing at Bojoko after the online gambling comparison site was named Casino Affiliate of the Year at the prestigious EGR Operator Awards 2020.
Bojoko fought off stiff competition from some of the biggest names in the affiliate industry, including Gambling.com Group, Catena Media and Blexr, to take home the trophy.
EGR judges said that Bojoko had showed “very strong growth” over the past three years having been the first to use the Airbnb and Trip Advisor model in the online casino sector.
The EGR judges said: “They continue to be innovative with a number of new features which has allowed them to grow to 26,000+ registered members.
“I really like the concept, it’s a true affiliate giving customers choice who to choose, growth looks decent and operators managing the page ensures compliance and cost control.
“It is a clever idea and model and shows good growth,” the judges added.
Bojoko allows online casino operators and game developers to create their own listing and tell their story through their own words, images and videos.
Bojoko members then rate and review online casinos and games based on the experience they receive, with Bojoko’s member base now standing at 26,000+.
Joonas Karhu, Chief Business Officer at Bojoko, said: “We are thrilled to have been named Casino Affiliate 2020 at the EGR Awards and for Bojoko to be recognised as a true leader in the space.
“The Covid-19 pandemic saw operators pivot to casino as part of efforts to mitigate the impact of the global sports blackout, making the casino comparison sector even more competitive than normal.
“The Bojoko team rose to this challenge and I am so pleased that their efforts have been recognised by EGR and its panel of esteemed judges.
“Our mission from day one has been to help players find the best casinos for them while also meeting the highest possible standards when it comes to responsible gambling and safe gaming.
“We continue to innovate and introduce new tools and features to help players filter and compare the 160+ casinos and 40+ game developers listed on Bojoko.
“We have ambitious plans for the coming 12 months, including expanding into the US market, and look forward to doing this with our first EGR award in the bag.”
