London, 2 December 2009 – Virgin Games are delighted to announce their success at the recent EGR awards, where they won the accolade of “Affiliate Programme of the Year.” Virgin Games beat some stiff competition from a host of other providers, including 888, Betfair, Ladbrokes and Paddy Power to collect the award at London's Billingsgate Market on 30 Monday November.
Now in their 5th year, the EGR awards are widely considered to be the Oscars of the online industry and this award is recognition of Virgin's achievement and innovation in the sector.
Jake Pollard, editor of eGaming Review, commented:
"Congratulations to Virgin Games for winning one of the most competitive categories in the EGR Awards. The relationship between affiliates and operators is vital to the health of the E-gaming sector and by winning the Affiliate Programme of the Year award, Virgin Games has demonstrated its strength and skill in understanding and managing this key aspect of the industry."
Launched in June 2004 Virgin Games offer a range of popular Casino, Bingo, and Poker products. In addition to substantial cash prizes, gamers can earn V Points, which can be redeemed against a whole host of Virgin branded products. The Guernsey-based website is a fully-owned subsidiary of Virgin and adopts the company’s ethos of having fun in that ‘unique Virgin way.’ The group is fully committed to ethical and responsible gaming policies, and prides itself on offering an honest and fair approach.
This is the latest in a string of awards which Virgin Games have picked up over the last few years. In June 2008 they were awarded "Best Gaming Affiliate Programme" at the a4uAwards and in January of this year, the company's head of affiliates, Pierrick Leveque, was voted "Best Bingo Affiliate Manager" at the 2nd annual Affiliate Awards. He commented on this latest win by saying:
"Everybody here at Virgin Games is delighted with this award. This year’s shortlist was packed with industry heavyweights, and for a comparatively small outfit like Virgin Games to get the vote makes the win all the sweeter.
"Without the Virgin Games management team, who gambled on building our in-house affiliate system three years ago; the Virgin Games technical team, who engineered the most stable, fun and scalable affiliate system I’ve had the pleasure to work on, and most importantly, without our loyal affiliates, we wouldn’t be where we are today. We can all be proud."
