LCB Awards is our very own signature event celebrating excellence in the online gambling world.
It was created to honor online casino and software brands whose high-quality service made the greatest contributions to the online gambing community and the iGaming industry as a whole.
After 15 years of continuous presence in the industry and with unparalleled first-hand experience in all matters of casinos and gambling, the LCB team felt it appropriate to establish an international awards event with multiple goals in mind:
- To celebrate individual brands and achievements that took genuine effort, hard work and dedication to the long term goal of improving the player experience
- To demonstrate and acknowledge new ideas that will lead the industry forward
- To support, promote and encourage the highest quality online casino and gaming service
Casino awards are given in six categories:
- Best Online Casino
- Helping Hand
- Rising Star
- Prime Perks
- Live Dealer Games
- Members Choice
There are additional two categories, with awards given for best slot game of the year and best live dealer software:
- Spin Me Round
- Pit Boss
There are 20 nominated candidates in each category, except 'Members Choice' where there is a large number of nominees for our members to choose from. A single winner is selected in each of the six categories. Casino winners will be announced and awarded during a live gala evening in Malta, sponsored by SIGMA.
Candidates are nominated according to multiple requirements and key features which include: a consistently good reputation in the industry without previous registered complaints, warnings or blacklist placements; fair terms and conditions; timely payments; efficient and helpful customer support; high-quality software and games; good promotional and bonus offering. With regards to slot games and live dealer software, candidates are nominated according to technical, gameplay and payout features.
Shortlisted nominees will be selected by way of voting within a designated members-only contest with a massive $12,000 prize pool:
- Registered LCB members will vote and decide which candidates will be shortlisted; guests/unregistered members can also vote, however they will not qualify for the random contest draw;
- Jury appointed by LCB will finally select winners between the shortlisted candidates in all categories except Members Choice, in which only LCB members and players will have a say.
Voters can vote once a day until the end of the contest in September and collect tickets (raffles) to be placed in a raffle drum. You can vote u to 8 times a day and you will receive 1 raffle/ticket per 1 vote, so if you vote in all 8 categories, you will receive 8 raffles/tickets.
A total of 45 contest winners will be selected in a random drawing from the drum, and awarded the following cash prizes:
1st prize: $2000
2nd prize: $1000
3rd prize: $1000
4th prize: $750
5th prize: $500
6th - 10th prizes: $250
11th - 35th prizes: $100
Members with the highest number of votes who DON'T receive one of the top 10 prizes in the random prize draw, will qualify for one of 10 consolation prizes from a total pool of $2,000:
This means that even those voters who receive one of 35x $100 prize are eligible for consolation prizes.
Consolation prizes will be awarded according to the number of votes. Up to 2 members with a matching number of votes can share one of the 10 places and they will each receive a corresponding prize in full. If 3 or more members have a matching number of votes, the corresponding prize will be awarded to the member who first reaches the number of votes. The remaining members who share the same place/prize/number of votes will be awarded the next lower prize.
