November 27, 2010 | In: Articles

There was a good evening for online bookmakers BetFair and Bet365 at the EGR Awards 2010 this week, as accolades were handed out at the egaming industry awards. Popular bookie Bet365, which has a huge presence in the world of online betting, picked up the coveted EGR Operator of the Year award. Bet365, based in Stoke picked up the top honour, beating out 888, Betsson, PartyGaming, Unibet and BetFair for the trophy. With one of the most generous welcome bonus offers available, combined with some of the leading prices in market value, and high quality services such as Live In-Play betting and live sports streaming, Bet365 command a big presence in online betting, and their work has been duly rewarded. Online Betting Exchange BetFair came highly commended in the award. That was one of three awards won by Bet365 at the EGR Awards, as they also won top honours for the Best Website Performance and best Casino Operator was well.

BetFair did match Bet365 in terms of awards won, picking up the title for Innovation, best Mobile Operator and the UK Sports-Betting Operator of the Year. William Hill came highly commended in the UK Sports-Betting Operator of the Year award. That was some big recognition for BetFair, who are really the founders of the betting exchange system, offering punters an alternative to the traditional bookmaker. Bwin, with their excellent looking website, were handed the title of best European Sports Betting Operator. Bwin are set to merge with PartyGaming next year to strengthen the position of an already excellent service. Blue Square picked up the trophy for the Bets Mobile Performance. Paddy Power, who actively post response times for answering calls at their customer support, won the award for Customer Relations Operator. These are great recognitions for the leading providers of online betting, and potential new customers will take note of the names on the awards list.
