Five SoftSwiss Online Casino Brands Are in the Finals for AskGamblers Awards 2020

As we are getting closer to the AskGamblers Awards virtual ceremony (with only 6 days left until the main event!), we are at the edge of our seats to find out who the winners are going to be. With the competition stiff and tough, we must admit you – dear players – are going to have a difficult task to help our jury choose the best of the best.

SoftSwiss Scores 5 Nominations

SoftSwiss has recently announced that 5 online casino brands running on their platform have become the finalists in the Best Online Casino category at AskGamblers Awards 2020.

The list of these casinos includes BitStarz Casino, King Billy Casino, N1 Casino, Oshi Casino, and SlotWolf Casino. The brands running on the company’s White Label solution are holding 5 out of the total 10 places in the finalists’ list for Best Online Casino.

On that occasion, we gathered here with the SoftSwiss team today to discuss it all a bit further.

What does it feel like to have online casino brands being shortlisted for the Best Online Casino accolade at the AskGamblers Awards 2020?

Don’t want to brag, but casino brands powered by SoftSwiss technologies and white label infrastructure have always been among winners since AskGamblers Awards started in 2018, suffice it to mention BitStarz and King Billy Casino. Moreover, our game studio BGaming was among the nominees last time for an innovative video slot.

So, it feels awesome to be in the pack again! But to know that the event is finally returning after the turbulent last year — this feels even better, so congratulations to the whole AskGamblers team!

What is the secret to running a successful casino brand?

I would say there is no “secret sauce” to this “dish”, but rather a smart and effective composition of ingredients each contributing to that mouth-watering taste. 🙂

We from our end are always ready to bring in whatever our operators need. Some of them need just the iGaming platform, while others rely on a range of extra services that we provide: first-tier support to players, customer retention, loyalty program building, tools for affiliate management… In any case, like with all great endeavours, it all needs to work together on a high level to achieve peak performance.

What qualities does an online casino need to have in order to gain players’ trust and to operate in diverse markets worldwide?

There are both basic points and extra factors. Basic points being: to diligently adhere to regulations and your own policies, to have proactive support, to pay out winnings eagerly and on time. And, undoubtedly, to have a wide range of payment options convenient to players on a given territory.

For example, SoftSwiss recently integrated a range of PSPs absolutely critical for India and Brazil, so that our operators can freely cater to those markets. Right now, we are working to tap, payments-wise, into Southeast Asia and West Africa.

But to be overly successful, you have to go another extra mile or two. You need to have a tailored offer of games, be super creative about the overall casino promotion as well as player retention, and surprise players (in a good way of course) constantly.

SoftSwiss casinos are easily recognisable in many different countries, all over the world. How hard is it to keep an excellent reputation and always be among the best iGaming brands?

It feels hard until you make it 🙂 We mean, when you give it a thought, our incessant growth coupled with strong positioning stem from the company’s culture, the foundation of which was instilled by the founders in our earliest days. There are 700 of us now, so it is important to focus on hiring people that would do their utmost at work, be proactive, be decisive, and look at problems from different, maybe unprecedented, angles.

Such company culture ultimately translates into the ability to maintain the high quality and scalability of our products, to come up with innovative features, and to sign deals with rockstar clients.

What is your opinion on the AskGamblers Awards and how do you like the entire concept?

We absolutely like the fact that winners of the awards are determined not only by the Jury but by players themselves. This brings in more transparency and allows for more interesting competition.
Also, it again boils down to people. The team organizing the Awards is just so remarkable, you can feel a lot of warmth when communicating with them, let alone when you arrive in Belgrade. Let’s hope the next awards will be entirely an offline event!

What are your expectations from the AskGamblers Awards this year?

We expect a fun-filled and fair battle at the very top of the industry. We keep our fingers crossed for all the brands and products associated with SoftSwiss and wish them heaps of luck!
