The winners of the EGR B2B Awards were announced on the 20th of June at Hurlingham Club, London.
Featuring the best players in the industry, concerning software developing, payments providers, recruitment teams, support teams and many more.
Each category had a special package of criteria to be judged after them, including flexibility, reliability, innovation, creativity, delivery and user feedback.
The judges are different every year and are chosen from neutral, external people, with a great knowledge of the gambling industry. There were two committees for each category, the first one choosing the short list and the second one deciding the winner.
Each judge had to assess each criterion, to give it a score and to submit a brief analyze of the submission.
As mentioned before, the judging panel was fully composed by competent people from the industry, with no conflict of interest:
- Per Widerstrom (Fortuna Entertainment Group);
