Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

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.
