How we did it
Process

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. Each award category has been validated as being important to players via a local focus group (held September 2019).

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:

  • What makes this innovation unique?
  • What are the key benefits to the end user?
  • Evidence that users have adopted it

The Data

We started our data collection in September 2019, 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 2021 awards we will be using a full year’s data to make our assessments even more comprehensive.

Audit
KPMG-logo

We are delighted to confirm that KPMG Isle of Man will be our official voting adjudicator. This is part of our commitment to transparency on the Greek Bookmaker Awards.

Advisory Board

Our Advisory board is made up of experts from the iGaming industry, many of whom have specialist knowledge of the Greek market. They will oversee the process to ensure its transparency and will judge the innovation award. If you are interested in becoming an advisory board member for this market, or any of the others we operate in, please drop us an email and let us know what you could bring to the board.
