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 September 2021 in Amsterdam 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 Amsterdam, at the Grand Hotel Krasnapolsky, on the 28th of September 2021 where we will celebrate the best bookmakers in Greece, Romania, Poland, Sweden and Denmark. You can find more details below.
We very much look forward to welcoming you to the Grand Hotel Krasnapolsky, an incredible venue in Amsterdam on Tuesday the 28th of September 2021. Please be assured we will follow all government guidance in line with live events in a COVID-19 environment. Your safety and enjoyment are paramount to us.
The host for the 2020 awards was Alexis Spyropoulos one of the leading Greek sportscasters. Alex has covered many of the world’s leading football tournaments for Greek television including the World Cup, European Championships, Champions League and Europa League finals. His career spans 25 years and in this time he has worked for some of the biggest broadcasters and media companies in Greece including MEGA Channel, Cosmote TV and many more. He is currently working for OPEN TV.
Alex was joined on the night by Konstantinos ‘Kostas’ Katsouranis, one of the most capped players in Greek football. Kostas proved to be a key member of the Euro 2004 winning squad and has represented Greece at Euro 2008 & 2012, as well as the 2010 & 2014 World Cup. During his career he has played at Benfica, Panathinaikos and AEK Athens, winning the Super League Greek Footballer of the Year Award twice and the Cosme Damiao Award.
Your Host for the evening for the 2021 Better Collective Bookmaker Awards in Amsterdam will be the very talented Dirk Kuyt. Dirk is a former football player. During his impressive career he played in the Netherlands (FC Utrecht and Feyenoord), England (Liverpool FC) and Turkey (Fenerbahçe SK). Additionally, Dirk represented the Dutch national team at five major international tournaments; the 2006, 2010, and 2014 FIFA World Cups and the 2008 and 2012 UEFA European Championships. In 2005, Dirk started the Dirk Kuyt Foundation. The foundation supports people with a disability through events, donations and several programs in order to give them the opportunity to play sports.
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.
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.
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.
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.
