It looks like it’s great news for bingo fans because at the first ever Gaming Intelligence Awards a bingo provider has been declared the winner.
The ceremony, which took place at the ICE Totally Gaming event at the famous London Excel Centre between the 3rd and 4th of February saw online bingo provider Bet365 and software giant Playtech scooping up awards.
Bet365 won ‘Sports Betting Operator of the Year’ and ‘Socially Responsible Company of the Year’; whilst Playtech took home two awards for ‘Poker Supplier of the Year’ and ‘Bingo Supplier of the Year’. With 14 awards being given out in total between those two days, these bingo veterans are the only gambling brands to take home two awards from the event, which is quite an achievement for them.
The whole event was regarded as a big success by everyone who attended and Gaming Intelligence Editor-In-Chief Bobby Mamudi said: “I’m thrilled to reveal these new awards for the industries best performers.”
He continued: “We’ve built our integrity from our editorial products and the awards follow the same policy.”
Mr. Mamudi then went on to say how the current gambling industry demanded an end to what he referred to as ‘cronyism’ and that their awards event ended that. He finished by congratulating all of the brands and providers that took part in the event.
