(PRESS RELEASE) -- Live casino pioneer Codeta has been crowned Newcomer of the Year at the prestigious Casino.SE Awards 2016. It is the fourth year the super-affiliate has hosted the ceremony, which recognizes and celebrates excellence in the online casino sector.
Codeta, which launched in June 2016, picked up the gong for Newcomer of the Year. Other winners included Mr Green, Unibet Sports & Racebook and Kaboo. Casino.SE said Codeta had shown there was "a gap to fill" in the live dealer market and that they had done it "admirably" by focusing on live table games.
"Those who love table games such as blackjack and roulette have been given a new home," Casino.SE said about its decision to hand Codeta the trophy. "Codeta lives up to its motto as 'The home of live table games,' which they also complement very nicely with a portfolio packed full of other games," it added.
Codeta CEO Edward Ihre said the operator was thrilled to be recognized for its dedication to, and passion for, live table games.
"We believe live tables games offer the most immersive and engaging online casino experience and by putting them under the spotlight they will finally enter the mainstream. The team behind live and breathe tables games, and their passion and enthusiasm is reflected in the world-class product we offer our players. The best is yet to come from us, and over the next 12 months we will go from newcomer to power player as we strengthen our product offering and enter new markets. I'd like to thank Casino.SE for recognizing our efforts to revolutionize the live table games sector, and congratulate the other winners," he added.
The award comes shortly after Codeta announced it was launching a second major funding round to drive its ambitious expansion plans forward.
Codeta offers a sleek and intuitive site with a variety of live dealer games, including blackjack and roulette from the likes of NetEnt, Evolution Gaming and Authentic Gaming. The site's live dealer games are streamed from dedicated studios, as well as real-life tables on casino floors all over the world, a process known as dual-play.
Codeta plans to carve out a name for itself as a pioneer and leader in live table games, but also has a selection of other table games and slots from NetEnt, Play'n GO, Aristocrat, Microgaming and others.
The site is available on desktop, and has also been optimized for play on mobile and tablet devices, both Android and iOS.
The name Codeta is a take on the French phrase coup d'├ętat, with the site kick-starting a revolution against the current status quo of the online casino industry.
