At the annual International Gaming Awards ceremony, recently held in London, the Kindred Group – formerly the Unibet Group – received the coveted Poker Operator of the Year award. The group’s platform was built by Relax Gaming and was launched in early 2014 following a strategic decision to leave the Microgaming Poker Network. This is first time that the Kindred Group has won the Poker Operator of the Year award for its Unibet Poker brand. The company has reported consecutive year on year growth since its new platform was launched.

The Head of Poker at the Kindred Group, David Pomroy said about the award: “We’re delighted with this award and are happy that Kindred has been recognized for helping to push online poker in a positive, much-needed direction. This is very much a passion project for all involved and only motivates us further to continue on a path which we feel brings real value to poker players, new and established alike.
Looking ahead, Pomroy said: “We hope 2018 will be a year of highs for us as we continue to improve on a platform built according to the original Unibet motto of ‘By Players, For Players’.”
Since its relaunch in 2014, Unibet Poker has continued to grow and expand, replacing its previous loyalty system with a popular innovative Missions and Challenges platform which appeals more to casual players. Unibet Poker also made the platform more attractive to new players by banning third party software. Another interesting feature of this site is a quick-seat lobby where players who enter the site are assigned seats in Sit ‘n Gos and cash games.
Other winners at the IGA Awards included: William Hill for Best Online Gaming Operator, Mansion for Best Online Casino Operator, IGT for best Lottery Product and Microgaming for Best iGaming Software Supplier.
