“An Achievement We Eagerly Sought”

Contacted by EsportsBets GG.Bet said “for the second time this year, we have been acknowledged as the Best Esports Operator. This time, the prestigious SiGMA awards honoured us with that recognition, an achievement we eagerly sought.”

“[Winning this award] signifies that we have been able to understand and meet the expectations of both consumers and the industry. At the core of everything we have done this year is a passion for esports.”

“This passion has manifested in numerous events for the fans, significant partnerships, collaborative content with the best talents and creators, media projects, and platform development.”

GG.Bet expressed their gratitude “to the judges and organisers of the SiGMA awards for duly acknowledging our contributions.”

Other big winners on the night included Alex Riddick in the Industry Ambassador 2023 category, BC.Game for the Best Casino Operator and Vlad Marlon was honoured as the Best Trendsetter of 2023.

An Incredible Year of Development for GG.Bet

This latest award is just recognition for a company that has spent 2023 continuously expanding and improving its esports betting service.

In January 2023, the company announced that two new Virtual Esports games would be released on GG.Bet – eSoccer and eBasketball.

February saw the company partner with esports integrity body ESIC to become a partner not just against anti-corruption within the industry, but also to provide an education service to help inform players on how they should behave.

The company also saw live match data added for Dota 2 and League of Legends, alongside its pre-existing Live Match data for Counter-Strike during the month.

Other big moments of the year have seen GG.Bet be the official broadcast partner of the BLAST Paris Major, its continuing expansion of services within the UK esports betting market. Further expansion into the Ukrainian market was also announced in October this year.

Perhaps most exciting for esports fans was the ‘Match of LeGGends,’ featuring its partners CS teams Team Vitality and Natus Vincere, which featured bespoke games and drew a live stream audience of over a million.

$47,000 Raised For SiGMA Foundation

GG.Bet were not the only big winners on the night. An art auction at the end of the evening saw several pieces of art sold off to the highest bidder with over $47,000 raised for the SiGMA Foundation.

The Foundation operates across a number of humanitarian initiatives across the world including South America and Africa.
