As part of the glittering SBC Awards ceremony and dinner, held last night at the HAC Artillery Garden in London, CasinoBeats ended its first year by recognising five of the online casino sector’s star performers.

Around 700 guests helped the nominees and eventual winners celebrate the very best the betting and gaming sector has had to offer in 2018, all under the stewardship of co-presenters Kirsty Gallacher and Peter Schmeichel.

There were five CasinoBeats categories spread throughout the evening, with the most prestigious of which – Online Casino Operator of the Year – handed out alongside the SBC Bookmaker of the Year at the evening’s climax. The winner of the top CasinoBeats gong was LeoVegas, pictured collecting the Operator of the Year award below.

There were also wins for Yggdrasil (Gaming Innovation), Evolution Gaming (Innovation in Live Casino), Play’n Go (Developer of the Year) and Twin Casino, named Rising Star.
