The event presented awards in seven innovation categories and seven overall award categories with the winners in the innovation category chosen by a panel of thirty judges. The overall award category winners were chosen by the attendees of the two SBC conferences – Betting on Football and Betting on Sports or those who receive the daily SBC News Betting Bulletin.
“Congratulations to Bet365 on winning Best Bookmaker again and all our winners,” announced Andrew McCarron, managing director of SBC. “Thanks to everyone who made it to our Awards ceremony with a difference.”
The evening also saw the launch of the SBC Sports Betting Hall of Fame. Howard Chisholm from Chisholm Bookmakers, Carsten Koerl from Sportradar and Mark Blandford, chairman of FBS Technology were inducted as the first inaugural members.
