    Do you mean the category? Or the website? It seems they won in 2018 too (in two categories actually).

    I had heard of them, thought they where a live score app. From a quick download it appears they are only advertising one bookmaker, I'm assuming they do decent numbers however it does seem odd for them to win.

    That's what I don't get about these awards that reward sites with just a few banners on. I know they are technically affiliates as obviously generate a lot of players but still........

    The awards are judged and I'm guessing the 2000 word pitch that you put in plays a role in the outcome. We were shortlisted but didn't write anything for the pitch (in part because I forgot, partly because I have no idea what to write, and probably more influentially we had no chance of winning).

    I have mixed thoughts about awards - but having entered, won and judged at different times over the years - the winners are usually determined by what's been placed in front of the judges (or in our winning case, we were the only entry in that category lol). Those that are able to explain how they've succeeded over 12 months will usually triumph over those who are less eloquent - even if they have a better site - or who don't write anything.

    Just my 2p.

    No chance of me winning, i'm not very good at bullshitting. But it does devalue the awards when you see some of the names mentioned or who were in the frame. But I will add my congratulations to Vargoso

    King Billy Casino just won a very special award: the iGB “Best Affiliate Program” Award and I cannot say how excited we are
    For a brand that was virtually non-existing two years ago, to come and win, against opponents like Mr Green, this is just huge for us!

    We won that category (Best Bingo Website) this year and indeed, I spent a lot of time and effort on that 2000 word pitch and supporting evidence.

    I understand the comments of other colleagues about the awards being nothing more than "public relationships and money thing" (just to use kind words).

    But in our case, I can the process was pretty simple and transparent. In April 2018 we set the goal to be shortlisted (no dreams about winning). In October I wrote the 500-word article needed for the nomination and I sent it. I have no idea if other player or company nominated us, but I think my one was the only one sent.

    After being shortlisted, it took me several days to write the 2000-word final submission (I wrote it by myself) and sent it. At that time, we still tough that the awards were given to other companies with more personal contacts.

    It's very exciting for us, we are not the biggest company out there and winning in two categories is a great motivational boost for all our team.
