SBTech wins Compliance Innovator of the Year 2018 prize
SBTech has yet again secured its position as the leading provider of betting and gaming solutions in regulated markets by winning the prestigious Innovation of the Year prize at the Gambling Compliance Global Regulatory Awards 2018.
The SBTech Chief Commercial Officer, Andrew Cochrane, commented: “As a company we are delighted to have been awarded this prestigious prize, which honours the vital work our compliance teams carry out in regulated markets.
“It is also very satisfying to see our long-term strategy of providing the most innovative solutions and services in regulated markets recognised by the industry, as it represents a longstanding, in-depth effort on the part of the group. The quality and breadth of our offering is complemented by the unrivalled expertise of our legal and regulatory teams in achieving full compliance in every jurisdiction, with a current focus on recently and newly-regulated markets like Portugal and Poland and, of course, territories which we hope will soon be regulated, such as the US.”
Recognising the most forward-thinking companies that are best prepared for the impact of new regulations, the award is a credit to the work SBTech has carried out in implementing innovative processes to enhance compliance across regulated jurisdictions and its operator network.
Ollie Wood, Chief Commercial Officer at Gambling Compliance, added: “It’s great to see such a proactive and forward-thinking company named Compliance Innovator of the Year. Regulatory procedures are growing in importance every year and this award reflects the modern solutions and services that SBTech provides. We look forward to seeing the group develop its compliance services and to it being nominated for more awards at our 2019 event.”
