It looks like there is no shortage of news from King Billy in the Award Front. After landing Best Casino in the 2020 AskGamblers Awards and getting a shortlist in the 2020 EGR “Oscars” of the gaming world, King Billy Casino nicely wraps up the season with two more nominations, this time for the coveted SBC Awards.

King Billy has been shortlisted in two categories: Rising Star in Casino and Affiliate Program. Do the two awards interrelate? And what do they mean for King Billy, now holders, as we are told, of 11 awards and distinctions in only 3 years of operations? Volodymyr Harkusha, King Billy CEO has the answers.

“These awards and actually all the awards we have gotten so far mean so much to us! Deposits may be our bread and butter but awards are our pride, joy and recognition that we are doing something really special. Mind you, we have been getting awards both from the industry pundits and the players, which shows the power of King Billy in both worlds. As further proof of the above, let me also mention the Casinomeister accreditation our casino got a few days ago.

Are the Rising Star and the Affiliate Program shortlists interrelated? Yes, they are! There is no compartmentalization in the Kingdom and one department’s success is all departments’ reason to celebrate. We push each other to become better and better, just like players in a winning team do”.

Well, there is no doubt that the “King’s 11” are certainly a winning team.

According to an annual report on gaming compiled by industry association Cejuego with the University Carlos III of Madrid, gambling revenue in Spain has dropped by 50% year-on-year.

The report shows gross revenue for all products and channels was €4.35bn for the period up until the end of October, down 50% compared to the same ten months in 2019.

Of the revenue reported so far this year, private companies generated €2.45bn while the state-owned Organización Nacional de Ciegos Españoles (ONCE) and Sociedad Estatal Loterías y Apuestas del Estado (SELAE) generated €1.9bn.

“Despite the fact the drop in income from gaming companies is higher than that recorded in other sectors such as fashion, automobiles or in-store sales in department stores, we have managed to reduce ERTES [temporary layoffs or reductions in hours] to 15 per cent of the workforce, so that 85 per cent of employees in the sector are working at the moment,” Alejandro Landaluce, CEO of Cejuegos, said.
