Players Choice Awards added to iGB Affiliate Awards
10 December 2014
(PRESS RELEASE) -- iGB Affiliate announced today they will be adding four brand new awards to the iGB Affiliate Awards which is set to take place on 1st February 2015 at Chelsea Football Club during the London Affiliate Conference. In partnership with casinomeister.com, OLBG.co.uk, bingoport.co.uk and Bluff Europe there new categories will reward the best online casino, sports book, bingo and poker room but uniquely from the player perspective.
“I felt it was really important to introduce player focused categories into the iGB Affiliate Awards as they are after all the lifeblood of the sector and their opinion is probably the most important to bear in mind when considering who to work with. I am really looking forward to the awards night now as I am particularly interested to see if these winners will differ from the affiliate category winners” commented Alex Pratt, Head of iGaming Business. “I would also like to thank the portals that have come on board to help us create these awards and their player communities that will make the decision on who will win,” Pratt continued.
The Players’ Choice: Best Online Sportsbook will be decided by the 200,000+ members of the www.olbg.com community who will be voting against criteria ranging from ease of use and customer service to the range of sports and bet types offered.
“OLBG are delighted to be partnering with iGB for the Players Choice Awards. Our community of knowledgeable sports bettors love to help others to improve their betting and aside from providing winning tips, a key part of this is helping people to choose a suitable sportsbook to bet with. Our members will take the voting seriously and we welcome the opinion of others so please join in at www.olbg.com/awards,” commented Richard Moffat, CEO of OLBG.com
The Players’ Choice: Best Online Bingo Operator will be decided by the www.BingoPort.co.uk community by bringing in this category from their established bingo awards they run annually during the London Affiliate Conference.
“We’re very excited to be able to integrate our Players’ Choice Best Online Bingo Site award into the iGaming Business Awards in 2015.” We’ve been presenting this award for the past 6 years, and feel that using the reach of real money bingo players that BingoPort.co.uk has access to we’re able to give an accurate representation of the real players’ choice when it comes to the best online bingo site,” commented Scott Logan of BingoPort.
“With so many sites to choose from today, we feel this is one of the most important and hotly contested awards in the industry and will be honoured to see it announced first at the IGB award ceremony,” continued Logan.
The Players’ Choice: Best Online Poker Room award will be decided by over 5,000 votes driven by the British Poker Awards website (www.thebritishpokerawards.com) run by Europe’s leading poker magazine Bluff Europe. Voters will make their decision based on software, service, game selection, bonuses amongst other criteria.
“Having hosted both the iGaming Affiliate Awards and The British Poker Awards, it is wonderful to close the gap between affiliate and player. This new award gets right to the heart of the matter - the "Player's Choice,"” commented Michael Caselli, Editor-in-Chief of Bluff Europe.
Finally the Players’ Choice: Best Online Casino will be decided by the 1,900 active members of the www.Casinomeister.com community who will create a short list of casinos that will then be judged by the 30 member Casinomeister Advisory Group which consists of experienced senior members, some of whom have been members of Casinomeister for over a decade.
Commenting on the awards Bryan Bailey simply and very accurately said “Casinomeister Meister Awards: The only awards that matter”.
The Players’ Choice Awards will be presented alongside the iGB Affiliate Awards which will take place at Chelsea Football Club on 1st February 2015. For more information visit www.iGBAffiliateAwards.com
