Wins for DraftKings and BetMGM at first North American awards


The SBC Summit North America 2021, organised and hosted by leading industry event organiser SBC, concluded last week with the first ever SBC Awards North America. Held at the prestigious Edison Ballroom in New York and hosted by YES Network’s New York Yankees clubhouse reporter, Meredith Markovits, an audience of more than 400 executives from the US and Canadian sports betting and iGaming sectors saw some big names enjoy some big wins.

DraftKings and BetMGM were named Sportsbook of the Year and Casino Operator of the Year respectively, with Bally, Entain, IGT, Openbet, Rush Street, Scientific Games and Sportradar also picking up winners’ trophies.

SBC founder and CEO Rasmus Sojmark was delighted with the event, saying: “Competition for the SBC Awards North America was fierce across all the categories, underlining the staggering progress made by the industry here over the past three years. Huge congratulations to all the winners selected by our independent judging panels. To have succeeded against such a high standard of opposition is a real mark of quality that the teams from the victorious companies can all be very proud of.”

Other category winners on the night included ArdentSky, Boom Entertainment, Evolution, Group, GAN, Intelitics, Nuvei, Optimove, PointsBet, Sightline Payments, USAbility and VSiN.

Sojmark added: “We would like to thank all the SBC Awards North America sponsors for their support and for helping to make this such a fantastic occasion. We are already looking forward to the second edition of the Awards in July 2022.”
