888 Casino Named Casino Operator of the Year at 2021 EGR Awards

- December 29, 2021 By Riley Wilson -

With 2021 drawing to a close, many igaming organizations and publications turn to marking the year’s biggest success stories. On November 25, EGR officially named the winners of their prestigious online gambling awards, with 888 Casino taking up the highest honor.

 “Strong Performance, Constant Evolution”

888’s victory is hardly a surprise to those knowledgeable about the industry. First of all, this is one of the most well-known and successful operators in the business. The casino has been around for almost two decades and is a constant fixture of many top casino lists. Secondly, they’ve already won the EGR Operator Awards twice in the past.

Not to say that 888 wasn’t facing very strong competition. However, in 2021, they expanded to four new markets and yielded record-breaking profits. Most observers following the event considered them to be the favorites from the get-go, and the 34 industry veteran judges agree.

Judges specifically praised the company’s ability to maintain a strong casino brand while simultaneously working with dozens of partners. The 888 live casino section drew the most attention thanks to hundreds of titles in its portfolio. Considering live casino games are quickly growing in popularity, this aspect of online casino service will only grow more important as time goes on.

Other Award Winners

While the Operator of the Year is arguably the biggest award at the ceremony event, there are others. Here are some of the highlights of the 2021 EGR awards:

  • Best Customer Services Operator to Kaizen Gaming (Betano)
  • Employer of the Year – Sky Betting and Gaming
  • Game of the Year – Gates of Olympus by Pragmatic Play
  • Best In-House Product – 888
  • Best Mobile Casino Product – LeoVegas

The awards were decided by a panel of external judges. They looked at the casinos and products as a whole – the ideas, executions, and results. This means that the list of EGR 2021 awards give us a decent overview of what went on in igaming this year.
