Reputed real money online casino site, LeoVegas has once again been recognized at the SBC Awards 2020 for its quality online gambling solution. This time the online casino is named as the casino operator of the year.

The Casino of the year award is the main award in the operator categories. By winning the prestigious award this year, LeoVegas prevent its competitor Wildz Casino to record a third consecutive win.

Mathew Jakes, Casino Portfolio Specialist at LeoVegas received the award.

“It is fantastic to receive this award, not just because everybody wants the prestige of being operator of the year, but it is really showing how much work we have, as a collective as Team Leo, put in during what has been an exceptional year.”

“Our commitment to innovation and providing the greatest and safest gaming experience for our players is something we are very much proud of,” Jakes added.

Jakes also shared that their branded Megaways and Multiplay are a few of the biggest attractions on their website.
“It seems a long time ago that we brought our own Branded Megaways and Multiplay to life and most recently it is the massive appeal of LeoJackpot, we really enjoy being King of Casino and we equally appreciate such recognition today,” Jakes concluded.

LeoVegas casino is the first operator to introduce the Multiplay feature. This allows the player to allows their member to play up to three games simultaneously. This can be done by setting the game on autoplay. When this feature is used on a mobile device, it can change your display between portrait and landscape mode depending on your preference.

The Branded Megaways, on the other hand, is an exclusive game made for LeoVegas casino in partnership with well-known provider Blueprint Gamin. This game is using Megaways technology so players can have up to 117,649 ways to win. The game also has free spin bonus round and cascading symbols.

“Huge congratulations to all the winners chosen by our independent panels of expert judges. We had a record number of entries this year and the standard was the highest we’ve seen since launching the awards back in 2014, meaning the victors had to be truly exceptional to see off the competition,” McCarron said.

“2020 has been a uniquely testing year for the industry but, from the evidence of the awards entries, there have been a lot of positives to take. The innovation demonstrated by suppliers in the development of new products and services, coupled with the commitment of the operators to drive up standards suggests that the industry will enter the New Year in a strong position,” McCarron added.
