The Swedish gaming giant will also contest the leading casino category, joining CampeonBet, GVC, Karamba, LeoVegas Mobile Gaming Group, PlayOJO, The Stars Group and Videoslots on the shortlist for the coveted Casino Operator of the Year prize.

Catena Media, Better Collective and Gambling.com Group head the hotly-contested affiliate section of the awards, all making the shortlists for both Sports Affiliate of the Year and Casino Affiliate of the Year.

Andrew McCarron, Managing Director of SBC, said: “We received a record number of entries for this year’s SBC Awards, with operators, suppliers and affiliates from around the world keen to achieve recognition for their hard work and innovation. Most importantly, the standard of the entries is superb, so we have twice the number of nominations and a tenfold increase in quality.”

“I can’t wait to see which companies emerge as winners at the SBC Awards ceremony, which is always one of the most enjoyable events of the year.”

The winners of the Operator and Affiliate Awards will be chosen by the industry, with everyone who attended this year’s Betting on Football and Betting on Sports conferences eligible to vote. However, the Supplier Awards will be decided by a panel of judges, who have been handpicked for their ability to identify the potentially industry-changing innovations among the entries.
