The company has been nominated for “Casino Operator of the Year”, Employer of the Year”, "Socially Responsible Operator of the Year", and "Leader of the Year" in the headline operator categories.

SBC's recognition honors and rewards North America's leading operators for their innovation and expertise in this rapidly growing, technology-driven industry, demonstrating excellence during the past year.

The SBC Awards North America ceremony concludes a week of events at the SBC Summit North America. This is the premier conference and trade show dedicated to the sports betting and iGaming industries in the U.S. and Canada.

The awards recognize not only the industry's established names but also the contender brands. BettorEdge, Fubo Gaming, Low6, MaximBet, PrizePicks, Rootz, and Sporttrade all make the shortlist for their outstanding performances.

“Everyone in the international industry has been impressed by the phenomenal growth of the North American sports betting and iGaming markets, and it’s great to see so many of the operators that have been driving that success represented on the shortlists," SBC Founder and CEO Rasmus Sojmark said.

"With such strong competition among the Awards entrants, just making it on to the shortlists is a real mark of quality, so it will be fascinating to learn who our expert judges select as the big winners on the night.”
