Even though some of the outcomes were to be expected, others were not. So, here is a breakdown of the important awards and various winners.
Live Casino of The Year Award
The contenders for the live casino of the year award included some very prominent names. 1xBet, BetConstruct, Pragmatic Play, Playtech, TVBet, among others, were the finalists in this category. Evolution Gaming, the developer who has won this award 11 times in a row, was missing from the list of finalists. It is presumed that the developer did not turn in its products for consideration.
