Affiliate of the year 

Leadstar Media

Leadstar Media has the balance of the company approach and results. There are good things about their performance and conversion rates, which is evident in their volume. The affiliate has a breadth of markets across quite a few areas, and revenue is growing at a good rate. It has come out of nowhere and has not been showy. It has built up an incredible business and stood out among everyone else on many levels. The way Leadstar Media runs the business by hiring junior staff, promoting from within and running a clean business is innovative in its own right.

Casino operator

888

888 is the entrant that best met the definition of any operator whose revenue, technology, innovation and marketing were very much driven by online casino and online casino alone rather than leveraging other brands within the spot. 888 continues to monetise the technology platform in which it continually invests globally, using broadly speaking one brand: the 888 brand. It's truly a global casino operator that is innovating with a variety of new game mechanics, enhancing its live offer and monetizing its sports offer.

Safer gambling operator of the year

tombola

Tombola applies innovation not just to the product suite but also to things like responsible gambling. The fact that their interventions have gone up 64% is rather impressive and they have a dedicated tech team. It's the level that RG is embedded into the businesses - it's a level beyond anything else. Some very good submissions here but you can see that tombola's processes were there from the start, so they are fully embedded. They are a growing business with a footprint in a number of different jurisdictions but are applying exactly what they've got in the UK, even to the point of RG through game design.
