About the award show

Welcome to the Better Collective Greek Bookmakers Awards by betarades.gr. We are delighted to announce that the second Greek Bookmaker Awards will take place in June 2021 following on from the success of our inaugural Greek Bookmaker Awards by Betarades in 2020.

At betarades.gr players and sports bettors are at the heart of everything we do, and we want to provide them with the best information on Greek bookmakers to help them make the best choices for their needs.

We created these awards for Greek-based bettors to enable them to do just that. Our categories are determined after extensive market research. This allows us to get to the heart of what bettors in Greek want, how they make purchase decisions and what factors they care about when choosing a bookmaker.

The awards process is fully transparent and all of the results are data driven, the result of many, many months of data collection across each market.

The winners will be presented during a glittering ceremony held in Athens in June 2021 where we will celebrate the best bookmakers in Greece and Romania. You can find more details below.

How we did it
Process

Players and sports bettors are at the heart of everything we do, and we want to provide them with the best information on the industry to enable them to make the best choices based on their needs.

Based on this all of the major bookmakers will be automatically included in our awards process.

We created the categories after speaking to the bettingexpert community so we really know what matters to them. As a result the awards categories can change depending on the market, so if you see an award in Greek that doesn’t appear in Sweden, that’s why. If you think there is something missing, then let us know.

This is the process we have created to make the Better Collective Bookmaker Awards the most robust and beneficial to our users, your customers.

  • Run a large-scale survey on betting habits, markets and sports on all main sites
  • Review of data collected ongoing each month
  • Country-based focus groups held to clarify findings and gain a better understanding of bettors
  • Awards categories confirmed by market research
  • Data collection commences
  • Data reviewed on a monthly basis
  • Weighting of all data based on survey results and final scoring Winners confirmed
  • Awards ceremonies take place, winners revealed
  • If you have any questions at all about the process please feel free to get in touch as we would be happy to answer any questions you may have.

    The Data

    This year has presented all sorts of challenges we didn’t expect. We plan to start our data collection in August 2020, and will continue to do so at fixed points each month or, as per our methodology, as deemed appropriate to measure effectively. This means that our awards do not represent a single snapshot in time, but rather a more comprehensive view of each operators offering with data gathered over 5 full months. For the 2022 awards we will be using a full year’s data to make our assessments even more comprehensive.

    Player’s choice

    We want to hear from the bettors. This is the award everyone wants to win. This is the community’s opportunity to vote for the bookmaker they think is the very best in the market. Voting for this award was hosted on betarades.gr. Nominations were open from October till December 2020.
