After the successful inaugural Greek Bookmaker Awards by Betarades we are delighted to confirm they will return in 2021 to continue to shine a light on the best bookmakers in the Greek marketplace. These awards create a trust mark for players letting them know they are betting with the best in the business.
The awards process is fully transparent and includes all licensed operators in the market. Results will be data driven and audited continuing the spirit of trust and transparency that Betarades and the Better Collective brands are built on. An advisory board of those with insight and experience in the industry will also be in place to oversee the process.
Our first awards took place in January of 2020 and we are looking forward to announcing our date and venue for 2021-watch this space. We can promise you another beautiful evening with all the main players in the Greek gaming industry.

Your host for the evening is Alexis Spyropoulos one of the leading Greek sportscasters. Alex has covered many of the world’s leading football tournaments for Greek television including the World Cup, European Championships, Champions League and Europa League finals. His career spans 25 years and in this time he has worked for some of the biggest broadcasters and media companies in Greece including MEGA Channel, Cosmote TV and many more. He is currently working for OPEN TV.
Alex will be joined on the night by Konstantinos ‘Kostas’ Katsouranis, one of the most capped players in Greek football. Kostas proved to be a key member of the Euro 2004 winning squad and has represented Greece at Euro 2008 & 2012, as well as the 2010 & 2014 World Cup. During his career he has played at Benfica, Panathinaikos and AEK Athens, winning the Super League Greek Footballer of the Year Award twice and the Cosme Damiao Award.
Players and sports bettors are at the heart of everything we do, and we want to provide them with the best information on the industry to help them make the best choices based on their needs. Based on this ethos, all licenced bookmakers will be automatically included in our awards process. We created all the categories after speaking to the Betarades Community to know what matters to them. As a result we've removed a couple of awards and will be adding some new ones. If you think there is something we are missing then let us know.
The only award where bookmakers are required to nominate themselves is the Innovation Award.
Innovation in the industry is one of the most exciting parts of what we do. It keeps our products fresh and interesting. Because players are at the heart of what we do, we want you to showcase a new innovation that does just that; improving the player experience. This could be a new product or significant improvement to your customer service. To qualify, it must have been implemented in 2019 and be unique to your brand. We'll be in touch soon to let you know how to apply.
Our advisory panel will be looking at the following, so please consider this when you submit your application:
This year has presented all sorts of challenges we didn't expect. We plan to start our data collection in September 2020 and will continue to do so at fixed points each month, or, as per our methodology, as deemed appropriate to measure effectively. This means that our awards do not represent a single snapshot in time, but rather a more comprehensive view of each operators offering. For the 2022 awards we will be using a full year’s data to make our assessments even more comprehensive.
