The official shortlist of the Baltic and Scandinavian Gaming Awards 2020 is now live.

 

It has been a hard and stressful period for some of the companies who battled daily by reaching out to their clients base and asking for feedback via votes to help them climb the charts and be included in the shortlist for the 2020 edition of the Baltic and Scandinavian Gaming Awards (BSG Awards).

During June, the industry had the chance to cast their votes online for their favorite operators, software suppliers, and connected service providers and help them reach the Top 5 for their respective categories.

The online voting closed on the 30th of June at midnight and we are happy to announce that despite the critical period the industry is facing, there have been a total of 9641 votes submitted during the session. There have been many categories in which the number of votes has been at the exact results for 2nd, 3rd, 4th, and even 5th place. All companies who made the shortlist should feel proud of this achievement.

The shortlists for each category can be found below and as mentioned in the statement, the winners will be decided by the attending delegates via final voting session at the third edition of the conference and awards that will be held on the 6th of August in Tallinn at Radisson Blu Hotel Olümpia Tallinn.

Make sure to book as fast as possible as the seating is limited! You can choose one of the packages that include either delegate pass or delegate pass and accommodation combo (VIP Package)!

Swintt enters Lithuanian market through 7Bet partnership
Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

Award-winning software provider expands Baltic presence after signing two-month exclusivity deal with leading Lithuanian online casino platform

Swintt, the award-winning software provider behind fan favourite slots The Crown and Aloha Spirit XtraLockTM, have announced they will be further extending its Baltic footprint this month after signing an exclusive partnership with Lithuanian casino site, 7Bet.

The new deal – which represents the popular studio’s first foray into the country – will grant 7Bet a two-month exclusivity period, during which they’ll be the only operator in the country able to host Swintt slots. This will grant players at the site early access to titles from the top SwinttGames titles, including the two previously mentioned games and several other smash hits.

In addition to The Crown and Aloha Spirit XtraLockTM, the range of Select slots available at 7Bet will also include the re-spin laden Mystic Bear XtraHoldTM,  wild-loaded Path of Dragons and smash hit Monster Disco XtraHold™. Premium games to feature on the site, meanwhile, will include Extra Win X, Seven Books Unlimited, Book Dino Unlimited and recently launched Duolitos Garden.

The collaboration with 7Bet is another significant step for Swintt as the studio looks to cement its position as one of the hottest up-and-coming software suppliers in the Baltic area. The brand first entered the region through partnerships with Optibet in both Latvia and Estonia and has already built up a cult following among players, which will no doubt be strengthened further through their latest 7Bet deal.
After the two-month exclusivity period with 7Bet expires, Swintt is intending to launch at further online casinos in Lithuania, with one major operator already in the pipeline later in the year. Both Swintt and 7Bet are looking forward to giving their exciting game collection its Lithuanian debut via this exclusive deal.

David Mann, Chief Executive Officer at Swintt, said: “Having already enjoyed hugely successful debuts in Estonia and Latvia, we’re delighted to be able to enter the Lithuanian market for the very first time through our exclusive partnership with 7Bet casino.
“By giving the brand access to a hand-picked selection of ten of our most popular titles, we’re hoping 7 Bet and Swintt can create a real buzz in the country by giving Lithuanian players a first taste of what our studio has to offer in terms of exciting themes, innovative features and rewarding bonus rounds.”

Justinas Sliazas, Chief Executive Officer at 7Bet, said: “At 7Bet, we pride ourselves on providing players with the very best in online casino entertainment; and by teaming up with Swintt for this exciting new partnership, we’ll be able to offer them something that no other platform can match.
“By supplying our customers with exclusive access to a selection of Swintt’s most popular slots, we can further cement our position as a true frontrunner in the Lithuanian market while also helping the studio raise its profile in the country – making the collaboration a huge win for everyone involved.”

Lithuanian Basketball Federation (LKF) has extended cooperation with its long standing partner and main sponsor of the Lithuanian men’s national team, Betsafe.

“We are proud of such a long-lasting partnership with Betsafe. It started more than 10 years ago, coincidently right before the FIBA World Cup 2010. Throughout these years we‘ve enjoyed a number of great victories, and in the future, I have no doubt, we will win many more victories together,” LTU Basketball president Vydas Gedvilas said.

“It is a great honour for us to be part of Lithuanian basketball, to support the Lithuanian Basketball Federation and to be able to achieve victories together with the crown jewel of Lithuanian basketball – the men’s national team. LKF is our strategic partner in Lithuania and basketball is in the heart of every Lithuanian, so we are happy that the organization is growing and developing with our help,” Aurimas Šilys, managing director of Betsafe, said.

This year, the Lithuanian men’s basketball team will participate in the FIBA Basketball World Cup, which will take place in Japan, Indonesia and the Philippines from August 25 to September 10. During this tournament the national teams will fight not only for medals and the cup, but also for the qualification tickets to the 2024 Summer Olympic Games in Paris (France).

“A very important World Championship is ahead of us. We will have a long preparation period, also, a long trip to Asia awaits, but we will be ready, and we will strive to achieve our goals. We are grateful to the long-term sponsors of the federation, and we are happy to work together,” Kazys Maksvytis, head of the Lithuanian men’s national team, said.

The first stage of preparation for the Lithuanian men’s basketball team will begin on July 12 in Druskininkai, the second stage will start on July 17 in Palanga. Before the Basketball World Cup, the Lithuanian national team will play ten friendly games.
