22 January 2018 – The most successful and innovative gaming companies are noticed at the EGR Nordic Awards. In fierce competition, LeoVegas won three awards, “Nordics Operator of the Year”, “Casino Operator of the Year” and “Sports Betting Operator of the Year”.
“We are extremely pleased to have won the Casino Operator and the Sports Betting Operator awards as these are the two main categories that define our product. Being declared as the Nordics Operator of the Year is really outstanding! To receive these awards is a receipt that we are an extremely talented team at LeoVegas that is constantly delivering. It also shows that we are the GameTech company that is leading the way within the Nordic region,” says Gustaf Hagman, Group CEO.
Nordics Operator of the Year
LeoVegas won the award for the Nordics Operator of the Year because LeoVegas has been the driving force for innovation in all parts of the company and clearly distinguished from its competitors through a mix of high growth, innovation and strong delivery within product.
In addition, over the past year, LeoVegas has amplified its efforts in responsible gaming through the launch of www.LeoSafePlay.com – a dedicated portal for players who are at risk of developing an unhealthy gambling behaviour.
Casino Operator of the Year
This award confirms LeoVegas’ strong casino offering and the improvements made over the past 12 months. Primarily initiatives within Live Casino were highlighted with the ground-breaking “in-game deposit” feature, allowing players to make deposits without losing their seats. LeoVegas has also enhanced its live casino experience through their very own and exclusive studio, Chambre Séparée.
Sports Betting Operator of the Year
Over the past year, LeoVegas Sport has gone from strength to strength. Today, LeoVegas Sport is available in several markets and offers the possibility to bet on over 130,000 sporting events.
Even in this category, LeoVegas is praised for the ability to differentiate itself from the others in industry and in this case through an excellent product offering, effective marketing and global reach.

Bojoko crowned Casino Affiliate of the Year 2020
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.”

One King to rule them all! King Billy wins Best Casino in the AskGamblers Awards!
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 one of the most respected institutions in the iGaming world. Their distinctive feature is that they are the only awards where the winners are decided by a joint experts & players’ voting process.
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.
