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.
Royal Partners as Platinum Sponsor of AffPapa iGaming Awards
Royal Partners will join AffPapa iGaming Awards 2022 as the Platinum Sponsor of the event, honoring affiliates and operators.
The event will convert into a genuine melting pot, mirroring the incredible dynamic of the iGaming industry – promoting and bringing along affiliates and operators for a unique chance to participate among the industry’s biggest names.
The virtual Awards will be accompanied by an offline event for industry members on July 5th of this year, in the heart of Netherlands – Amsterdam.

Denis Nikishin, Head of Affiliates at Royal Partners, commented:
“Royal Partners is delighted to be this year’s Platinum Sponsor of the AffPapa iGaming Awards. This is an amazing opportunity to not only reconnect affiliates and operators, but to also have some fun. We’re pleased to see several of our affiliate partners join the list as well.”
Royal Partners joined AffPapa’s directory at the end of 2021, and the operator’s collaborations with our AffPapa-registered affiliates have been quite fruitful to say the least. This is yet another milestone in strengthening the cooperation between the two companies.
Yeva Avagyan, CCO at AffPapa, stated:
“We’re honored to welcome Royal Partners as our Platinum Sponsor for our first-ever AffPapa iGaming Awards. Working with the operator has been a pleasure so far, with communication and honesty being at the heart of just about everything. Having a major sponsor for AIA that also shares our AffPapa values is a big win!”
