After yet another year of providing you with the latest information and deals in the online casino world, we at AskGamblers have some very exciting news: the industry professionals at iGB have voted us the Best Casino Affiliate of 2012! The award was presented just this week at the annual London Affiliate Conference where hundreds of affiliates, casino executives, and software representatives met to discuss ways to make the coming year even better for both players and industry professionals.
iGB, or iGaming Business, have been a highly influential force in the world of online gaming for years. Their objective has always been to foster a sense of community among everyone in the i-gaming industry, from players and affiliates to casinos and payment processors. From annual conferences to their bi-monthly magazine, their dedication has made the online gaming environment one that is remarkably friendly and approachable.
As you can imagine, a company with such a professional outlook as iGB has high standards for those who work in the i-gaming industry. In preparation for this year's London Affiliate Conference, they have put in long hours to ensure that everyone gets recognised for their efforts. And with so many top-notch affiliates in the running, we're overjoyed to have won this prestigious award.
The work necessary to make this year's iGB Affiliate Awards a success began way back in August of 2011. During this time, dozens upon dozens of affiliates received nominations for their contributions to the online gaming industry. In November, all nominees were posted on the iGB website, where anyone could cast their votes for their favourites. Had so many of you not voted for us, we would not even be here today. We truly appreciate your support and thank you for our continued success!
The final decision rendered by the iGB judges themselves was based on a number of criteria. Requirements that affiliates had to meet included a good relationship with players, an ethical approach to business, a large player base, a continued rate of growth, and a high level of innovation. Meeting these criteria has certainly required a great deal of effort on our part. To meet such high standards, AskGamblers have implemented a more user-friendly interface, a brand new discussion forum, and our advanced CasinoRank algorithm to help players effectively choose the best casinos around.
Of course, none of this would have been possible without the help of our team of professionals. AskGamblers is a company backed by some of the best people in the business. From our marketing gurus to our editorial and coding staff, everyone on the AskGamblers team was necessary to make this year a success, and we are proud to have them onboard.
Lastly, we would like to sincerely thank the folks at iGB for appreciating the work that we have done to make the i-gaming industry a better place. It's truly an honour to be listed as the Best Casino Affiliate alongside so many other wonderful professionals. We look forward to continuing our efforts throughout 2012 to make this year even better!
