Pragmatic Play To Power EGR Operator Awards
Leading iGaming content provider Pragmatic Play will act as headline sponsor for the annual EGR Operator Awards 2020. This year, the event that’s been dubbed the Oscars of the iGaming world will be hosted virtually for the first time ever.
The special virtual awards event, scheduled for November 11 and 12, will this year once again recognise the industry’s top-performing operators across several sectors, including online casino, sportsbook, and the affiliate sector. The ceremony will officially commence at 4:20 p.m. on November 11 – and will once again include a special Presentation / Q&A, with the topic for 2020 being the bringing about of a more collaborative approach to safer gambling, both externally as well as internally.
A Great Opportunity
Pragmatic Play has referred to its headlining of the sponsorship as an opportunity for the content-driven company to show its support to the industry’s top operators in a direct and “firsthand” sort of way – whilst at the same time serving the larger industry by providing a sneak-peak at upcoming new iGaming-title releases as well as exciting new developments to the supplier’s Live Casino vertical.
It’s a privilege to act as flagship sponsor to such a recognisable event on the annual iGaming calendar, said Roxana Nazalu, Head of Marketing for Pragmatic Play. Nazalu also referred to the fact that the award is organised and hosted by EGR (eGaming Review), a company the Pragmatic Play head of marketing said has a solid track record in delivering not only successful events, but also events that are engaging.
A full agenda is on the cards this year, including several speaking panels featuring, among others, Pragmatic Play’s own Vice President, Lena Yasir. As the iGaming equivalent of the Oscars, the EGR Operator Awards is the online gaming sector’s largest and most respected awards ceremony by far.
