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.

These have been complemented by enduring affiliate software partnerships with major U.S. and global brands, including BetVictor, Caesars Interactive Entertainment, Danske Spil, FanDuel, and Golden Nugget.
Tara Wilson, Chief Operating Officer at Paysafe’s Income Access, commented: “I’m exceptionally proud of our Income Access team and their impassioned approach towards nurturing sustainable growth for our iGaming brand partners. Throughout this past year, we have remained committed to providing innovative affiliate marketing solutions that are responsive to the changing needs of our clients and their diverse acquisition and retention strategies.

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.”
