Partypoker has won the title of “Poker Operator of the Year” at the annual EGR Operator Awards for a second successive year. The Partypoker brand beat off competition from the Kindred Group and Stars Group to walk away with the trophy at a glitzy award ceremony held at Grosvenor House in London last night (25 October).
Considered the “Oscars” of the e-gaming sector, the EGR Operator Awards sets the gold standard for the industry and recognizes the top performing operators and affiliates over the last 12 months.
The award backs up partypoker’s success in 2017 and recognizes a sustained period of growth marked by sweeping changes to the site’s VIP program, live events roster and poker software. Looking back on another fruitful year that saw Year-on-Year net revenues rise 42%, partypoker continues to optimism its core poker product and enhance the playing experience across both online and live arenas as part of the site’s ongoing resurgence.
Partypoker’s win translated into a hat-trick of awards for its parent company, GVC Holdings, who also snagged the coveted headline “Operator of the Year” as well as “Casino Operator of the Year” titles, to cement its position as the premier operator in the egaming space.
partypoker Managing Director, Tom Waters said: “I’m absolutely delighted that the efforts of the team have been recognized for the second year running. Everyone in the team has worked so hard to get partypoker to where it is now and we are excited about how we can now take it to the next level.”
