Highlights from LCB Awards 2022
Back in May this year, we announced our plans to host a signature event aiming to acknowledge the most outstanding brands in the online casino industry. To give our members the opportunity to take part in this ice-breaking event, we organized a contest with a valuable prize pool, so that they could help us shortlist the candidates.
Voting was closed on September 1, 2022, and ten brands from each category were selected to compete for this significant accolade. A professional jury of experts with rich industry experience appointed by LCB was tasked to select winners between the shortlisted candidates in all categories except Members Choice, where LCB members and players had a say.
It seems as if someone has turned the time machine on, as the moment we’ve been waiting for has arrived. Winners for this year’s LCB Awards were announced on November 15, 2022, during a live gala evening in Malta at Sky Club Malta.
Meet the Winners
Initially, we intended to distribute awards in six categories Best Online Casino, Helping Hand, Rising Star, Prime Perks, Live Dealer Games, and Members Choice. Due to the huge interest, we expanded the list of categories, and added the following two- Spin Me Round and Pit Boss, which aim to recognize the best slot game and the most outstanding live dealer provider.
Casino awards were given in the following six categories:
Best Online Casino- BitStarz
Helping Hand- Guts Casino
Rising Star- Slots Ninja
Prime Perks- Everygame Casino
Live Dealer Games- LeoVegas Casino
Members Choice- Rocket Play Casino
In addition to the abovementioned, awards were given for the best slot game of the year and best live dealer software:
Spin Me Round- Vikings Go to Valhalla
Pit Boss- Ezugi
Valuable Contribution from LCB Members
As mentioned in the introductory part, the idea for our signature event in cooperation with SiGMA was announced in May this year. We presented a list of the 20 finest brands in each category, putting quite a difficult task before our players and eventually the jury.
Our members had the opportunity to vote and which operators/ games/ providers will end up among the top ten. The contest ended on September 1, 2022, when we presented the shortlisted candidates in 8 categories. There was a massive prize pool of $12,000 – $10,000 for main prizes and $2,000 for consolation prizes.
45 contest winners received the following cash prizes:
1st prize: $2000
2nd prize: $1000
3rd prize: $1000
4th prize: $750
5th prize: $500
6th - 10th prizes: $250
11th - 45th prizes: $100
10 players received valuable consolation prizes:
All in all, the entire project was marked as quite a successful and exciting one, giving all participants a unique opportunity to meet providers and operators. For that reason, we’d like to thank you, our dear members once again, for helping us make the iGaming industry a better place!
