Winners of the EGR Operator Awards 2020 Revealed

The gambling industry is a made up of a large number of big organisations and maybe even more smaller ones. In the EGR Operator Awards, everyone has a chance to win as you get to put across your own case for being deserving of the win and are then judged by a panel of industry peers.

Usually announced at a celebratory formal dinner event in London, the 2020 EGR Operator Awards had to be held as a virtual function. However, the team there are now experts at this undertaking and the audience still got to enjoy numerous insightful expert panel discussions, networking, a virtual photo booth and even a slots tournament!

Who Won an EGR Operator Award?

The big winner of the night was Betsson. They picked up all five of the awards they were nominated for. What an achievement.

Gamesys will also be pleased with their result – they picked up the trophies for Best Bingo Operator, Operator of the Year and Employer of the Year. So, not only do they have great sites that players can enjoy, they are loved by their employees too. Definitely a win-win.

Your very own WhichBingo was nominated as Best Bingo Affiliate and secured a Highly Commended mention, but didn’t secure the award this year. Check out the full list of winners and see if any of your favourites managed to secure an award and for some of them we have included some judges comments too:
