1xBet is a veteran betting company with a long tradition in providing sports enthusiasts with excellent wagering opportunities. In recent years, it has expanded its scope to provide esports fans with a vast selection of videogame competitions. Their progress and subsequent success didn’t go unnoticed and the bookmaker was recently awarded a prestigious prize at the SBC Awards 2020.
The Oscars for Sports Books
The SBC Awards are widely regarded as some of the most important awards in the entire online betting industry. Being nominated for a prize here is an achievement in itself, but actually winning the trophy is quite an accomplishment. The ceremony took place on December 9 and some of the biggest names in sports betting were in the race for a prize. 1xBet was nominated in the “Esports Operator of the Year” category and not surprisingly went on to win the award in emphatic fashion.
This is not the first time 1xBet wins the nomination in this category, with the bookmaker being on the verge of winning the award in 2019. This prize comes to confirm the progress made over the last years and provides the sports book with the impetus to persevere. In addition to being awarded the “Esports Operator of the Year” honor, 1xBet was highly commended in the “Marketing Campaign of the Year” and “Sponsorship of the Year” categories.
High Expectations for 1xBet in 2021
Winning this prestigious award was not a surprise for punters who have an account with 1xBet and are familiar with their product. The progress made in the e-sports niche was tremendous in 2020, but the bookmaker didn’t ignore other categories. This explains why they were shortlisted for the “Football Sportsbook of the Year”, “Best Mobile Operator App” and “Best Affiliate Program” prizes. The SBC Awards are important because the prizes are given after extensive deliberations by an authoritative jury that features in excess of 100 gaming industry representatives.
