It has been confirmed that former Manchester United player and three-time winner of the UEFA Goalkeeper of the Year, Peter Schmeichel, will host the 2018 SBC (Sports Betting Community) Awards alongside former Sky Sports presenter, Kirsty Gallacher.

The awards ceremony will take place at the beautiful HAC Artillery Garden next month on December 4th. The awards acknowledge the achievements of online casinos and affiliates, as well as bookmakers and suppliers across the industry, including platform providers, marketers and payment processors.

Celebration Night

There are a number of different awards on offer including five in the CasinoBeats Awards Categories.

The most prestigious of which is Casino Operator of the Year. Companies competing in this category include Videoslots, SkillOnNet, Nektan, MinoTauro Media, LeoVegas Mobile Gaming Group, GoWild Gaming, Global Gaming, Betsoon Group, and Alea.

The other awards that are up for grabs in this category include;

  • Rising Star in Gaming
  • Game Developer of the Year
  • Best Gaming Innovation
  • Innovation in Live Casino

There are only three companies going head-to-head in the latter category: Ezugi, Evolution Gaming, and BetConstruct.

Last year, there were a number of notable winners. Bet365 took home Bookmaker of the Year, beating Sky Betting and Gaming. The founder and Ceo of BetContruct, Vigen Badalyan, was entered into the SBC Hall of Fame. Who will scoop the accolades this year?

Exciting Hosts

Peter Schmeichel’s experience in football is extensive. The “Great Dane” is most known for the eight years he spent at Manchester United, where he lifted the Premier League trophy five times. He also helped his native Denmark to an unpredicted triumph in the 1992 European Championships.

Kirsty Gallacher has become a popular face in the online gambling sector and was recently confirmed as a William Hill brand ambassador. Kirsty is also a regular in marketing clips for the online bookmaker and casino, starring in promo videos with the likes of Eddie Hearn and Anthony Joshua.

Both of the stars have commented on their delight at being hosts for the event, with Gallacher stating that she is particularly excited to share the stage with a “true footballing legend.”
