Popular gaming website 888.com just experienced one big hot streak at the recent 2013 Gaming Review Operator Awards. On November 25, hundreds of industry operators and personalities convened at the Roundhouse Theater in London to celebrate the best in the business and dole out some coveted awards. 888.com and its brands got bragging rights for the ninth installment of the event as it was nominated for several categories.
An Impressive Flush of Awards
At the Operator Awards, 888.com’s nomination highlights included Casino Operator of the Year, Poker Operator of the Year, Operator of the Year, Mobile Poker Product and Marketing Campaign. 888.com must be doing something extremely well because their win of the “Poker Operator of the Year” title in London marks the third straight time the site has been awarded the honor.
“Casino Operator of the Year” also went to the company and that win marks the third time they have taken home that category as well. They also snagged the “Operator of the Year” award to solidify their victory sweep. The culmination of these awards marks the first year of the Gaming Review Operator Awards that 888.com has received wins for the top three categories.
A Focus on Entertainment
And what is the cause for 888.com’s tremendous success this year? The company’s razor-sharp focus on pure entertainment and player safety attributed a large part. These concepts were crucial in them being selected for the three biggest categories at the London event.
Itai Pazner, Senior Vice President of 888.com said, “This year has been an extremely exciting and successful year for 888 and all of its brands. To win all three of the top EGR Operator Awards is an amazing achievement and drives our continuous focus to be the leading global entertainment gaming brand.” No doubt that Pazner hopes the momentum will carry them into 2014 and more potential award wins down the line.
Continuously Growing as a Brand
Based out of Gibraltar, 888.com was founded in 1997 and has since been a leader in the online gaming industry. In the past year, the company has gone full-force with marketing campaigns plus new software updates that have resulted in exponential growth. Developing mobile products and positioning themselves into new regulated markets like New Jersey have only further ensured they were worthy of the Operator of the Year awards.
