Betting Services Provider BetConstruct Wins Prestigious Award
BetConstruct, a B2B provider of services to a number of UK betting sites, has won the prestigious Platform Provider of the Year award. The prestigious honour was awarded to BetConstruct at the Global Gaming Awards (GGA) 2023 in London. GGA, held in February 2023, is considered the most prestigious Awards event in the betting and gaming industry, and has been held for 6 years in a row. It recognises and rewards excellence across a number of categories, all related to the gaming industry.
The jury deciding which companies would receive an award consists of 56 judges who are leading experts either in the betting and gaming industry, or high-ranking executives in their respective industries. Among them were Inspired Entertainment’s President & COO Brooks Pierce, Sportradar’s Group CEO Carsten Korel, Google’s Industry Head Chris Harrison, LeoVegas’s Group CEO & Co-Founder Gustaf Hagman, Betsson Group CEO Jesper Svensson, Evolution’s Chief Product Officer Todd Haushalter, and BetConstruct’s Co-Founder Vigen Badalyan.
The event really is designed by the betting industry for the betting industry, and celebrates successes, achievements, and progress in a complex, intricate field. It is a chance for networking and link building, and provides an opportunity for those involved in betting and gaming to recognise each other’s contributions to the industry and to acknowledge the difference they make. Some of the categories are sponsored by betting providers or services – for example, BetConstruct’s category Platform Provider of the Year was sponsored by Light & Wonder, a US-based global provider of content and products to betting sites.
Other important categories included Retail Operator of the Year, which was won by one of the leading UK sports betting providers Paddy Power, and Casino of the Year, won by the Hippodrome Casino. Meanwhile, bet365 was named Online Sports Betting Operator of the Year, and LeoVegas won the Online Casino reward. Both companies have contributed significantly to the development and growth of the betting and gaming industry, and have committed to providing outstanding service and excellent features and products to its customers, and both feature on our list of UK betting sites. bet365 also won an award in the category Affiliate Progam of the Year, demonstrating its commitment to building productive relationships with its affiliate partners.
A recognition was also awarded to the most socially responsible betting company of the year. The honour went to Kindred Group, a large betting company which brings together nine betting sites and strives to promote safer gambling and reduce the harm caused by gambling as much as possible. The group prides itself on its investment in, and focus on, social responsibility. Its betting sites, which include 32Red and Unibet, are a truly safe place for bettors who want to have fun in a safe and responsible way.
The Platform Provider of the Year award is a major milestone for BetConstruct, which provides a complete betting platform solution to betting sites such as vbet and Ruby Bet. The company’s Spring Platform is home to over 10,000 online games, and is the main component of BetConstruct’s omnichannel experience and portfolio. The services provided by BetConstruct include sports betting, peer-to-peer games, slots, RNG games, virtual sports, poker, and a lot more. All major providers of betting and gaming content feed its products to BetConstruct’s platform, which then provides it to betting sites across the world. BetConstruct’s platform is open, which means that any website using software or technology can integrate it and provide it to its customers.
A statement issued by BetConstruct following the win reads:
“BetConstruct appreciates the trust and recognition of industry experts and, inspired by such important awards, will continue creating and developing more flexible and multifunctional solutions to meet any industry requirement.”
2023 is a very important year for BetConstruct. In addition to reaching its 20th anniversary, the company started the year with an exciting new partnership with Sports Information Services (SIS). The new deal means that BetConstruct will integrate 24/7 live horse-racing content provided by SIS, and this will be available to all bettors on betting sites using BetConstruct’s platform. This news followed an announcement in December 2022 that BetConstruct entered the Philippines betting market following a contract with leading betting provider Jade SportsBet.
BetConstruct has exciting plans for the coming years, and it is likely that this award will not be the last for the company, which is planning to completely overhaul its business model. In addition to providing a complete betting solution to betting sites, BetConstruct is also planning to start offering individual products and services on the basis of what the betting site needs or wants at the time. This will mean a lot of new partnerships with betting sites which do not necessarily need a full betting platform but may still want to use some of the features or services BetConstruct can offer. Industry experts have welcomed the news and are looking forward to seeing what BetConstruct will achieve in the future.
