“Solid as a rock – and then some”
Betsson is the Best Group for 2020. This is a long overdue award to the Best Casino Group of the year – Betsson. Their portfolio of casino brands is a laundry list of some of the best managed online casinos – period. They consistently receive praise from our members and rarely if ever generate complaints. If and when they do, they are swiftly resolved by their casino management team.
A little over 18 years ago, the CEO of NetEnt contacted me to see if he could get his casinos listed in our “Reputable Casino” section (the precursor to the Accredited Casino section – soon to be Vetted Casinos). That’s how it was in those days – webmasters like myself would have either a face-to-face meeting, a phone call, or an email from the head of the organization. Man, I miss those days. But yes, we brought on their properties eighteen years ago – and I have never regretted this decision.
After a bit of time, Betsson emerged from this modest group and carried on in a big way – growing into what they are today: a European and UK facing casino operation that offers players just about any gaming platform that they are looking for: Casino games, Live Games, Sports, Poker, Jackpot Games of course – and just about anything under the sun that you can bet on.
Since they are primarily focused on the UK and European market, their casinos have been localized into most European languages and they especially cater to our cousins in the north – Sweden, Finland, Iceland. Punters and players from these regions will have an easy time dealing with properly written terms and conditions, native speakers, and the professionalism one would expect from a publicly traded company.
I would recommend any of their casinos to my best of friends. Congratulations to Betsson and its leadership and employees. You have brought a great service to the online casino community. Kudos all around.
Historical Best Group Awards:
I have been awarding the best Online Casino Group award since the very beginning – The Sunny Group was the first awardee in 2001. Little did we know that the operator would go whacko and start doing some nefarious deeds in the mid 2000s. It was a shame since the guy was an alright guy – a bit eccentric, but you had to be a little bit “different” getting started in this business twenty years ago, right?
