SBC, a corporation that specializes in media and events, has made the announcement regarding the nominees for its annual sports betting and gaming awards. The meeting will take place during the SBC Summit Barcelona conference that will take place in September in Barcelona. This conference will bring together representatives from 2000 different iGaming and sports betting firms.
The SBC awards are geared toward rewarding the companies that have had the best overall performance during the year. The 45 award categories for this competition are not only geared toward operators, but also include affiliates, suppliers, specialists, and payment providers. On September 22, during the final day of the SBC Summit in Barcelona, there will be a glitzy ceremony in which the winners will be announced. The event will take place in Palau Nacional.
45 Categories are Contained at The Ninth Edition of The Awards
The “Sportsbook of the Year” award is without a doubt the most coveted one that can be won at this competition. bet365 won the title in 2021 and is once again one of the front-runners for the prize this time around. It faces off against leaders in the market such as FanDuel, Novibet, Kaizen Gaming, and the LeoVegas Group, amongst others.
Betsson Group, which currently leads this year’s race for most total nominations with an impressive nine, is likely to be the company that poses the greatest threat to the company’s chances of winning the category. The competition for Casino Operator of the Year is equally fierce, despite the fact that many of the same names appear in both categories.
The honors for this year divided the old continent into four categories for North, South, East, and West European operators, despite the fact that many of the same names appeared in many categories. The Rising Star award is broken down into two distinct subcategories: sports and casinos.
This year, those in the operator industry are not the only ones dealing with fierce competition. The competition for the 21 awards given to the suppliers is similarly fierce. The nominations are led by Sportradar and BetConstruct, each of which has seven, followed by Stats Perform, Playtech, and Pragmatic Play, each of which has five.
Choosing The Very Best in The Industry is The Judges Decision
Rasmus Sojmark, CEO and Founder of SBC, sent his congratulations to the individuals who were selected. He pointed out that it was a difficult task for the judges to choose winners from among all of the excellent companies that were pushing the sector to new heights.
Over one hundred fifty of the gambling industry’s most prominent individuals have been hand-selected to serve on the jury that will decide the winners. Only the companies in a certain industry that have demonstrated the highest level of success are eligible to be considered for a shortlist for an award. As a direct consequence of this, the judges will be tasked with the difficult task of selecting winners from among the very finest entries.
As a result of the fact that many of the members of the judging panel are also members of the companies that were shortlisted, they are expected to declare any conflicts of interest and will abstain from voting in any areas where there is an issue. In addition, in order to safeguard the applicants’ right to privacy, the SBC Awards have required that the judges sign non-disclosure agreements.
