(PRESS RELEASE) -- SBTech has won two major prizes at the eGR B2B Awards 2019, claiming Sports Betting Supplier of the year and best In-play Betting Software, the fourth consecutive year the company has achieved this accolade.
The pioneering business has achieved a host of significant milestones in the last 12 months, winning some of the industry’s biggest sports betting and platform technology contracts across established and newly regulated markets including the U.K., U.S. and the Nordics.
SBTech created history by becoming the first supplier to announce sportsbook technology partnerships in the newly regulated U.S. market with Churchill Downs

Since then it has rapidly become the go-to sportsbook platform supplier having won several major public procurement processes due to its innovative, proven, revenue-generating platform and sportsbook technology that is recognized as the number one for speed to market, localization and flexibility.
In May this year SBTech launched of the most significant new brands into the competitive U.K. market, powering Gamesys’ new sportsbook brand Virgin Bet after agreeing a landmark five-year full platform deal. SBTech was selected by Gamesys due to the depth of next-generation platform and sportsbook API’s.
