Bet365 was named Best Bookmaker for the second year running at the Betting on Football Awards last night. The Stoke-based bookmaker beat off strong competition from rivals Sky Bet and Unibet to pick up the title.
Sky Bet didn’t go home empty handed though. The firm picked up awards for Best Mobile Bookmaker and Best Sponsorship Partnership for its work with the Football League.
The Awards were announced at a fun evening in the Playboy Club in Mayfair. The winners were voted for by the industry experts who attended SBC’s Betting on Football Conference #bofcon at Emirates Stadium earlier this year.
Other winners on the night included Ladbrokes, which won Best Marketing Campaign for its Papa Johns free pizza offer, Oddschecker which won Best Affiliate and Fantasybet, which picked up Best Fantasy Product.
Betradar was named Best Data Supplier and Betgenius picked up Best Innovation for its Abandoned Betslip Targeting.
#bofawards was supported by Sportradar, BetConstruct, editec, Sportego, Pinnacle Affiliates, EnergyCasino, Oddslife, PaySec, TXODDS and BetMarkets.
