A RECENT newcomer to the island’s eGaming industry is celebrating after scooping a prestigious award.
Goldenboys won the financial betting product of the year category in the eighth annual eGaming Review Operator awards last Monday at the Roundhouse, London.
The Awards brought together more than 700 eGaming operators and other industry professionals to celebrate the genuine innovation and excellence achieved across the online gaming industry over the past 12 months
Father-of-two Martin Linham, 43, of Goldenboys said: ‘We are absolutely delighted with this success. We beat off betting ‘‘big boys’’ William Hill and Red 32 to win this category.
‘To win an award like this in only our first year of operation is phenomenal.’
Based in Market Street, Douglas, Goldenboys is a financial betting website which offers simple games that do not require a detailed knowledge of the financial markets. Mr Linham, who has lived in the island since 1993, said: ‘You don’t have to be a financial wizard to have a go. The idea is to have fun.’
The online gaming firm is expanding with new games including one called Fast Buck, based around the markets but with a horse racing theme along with a casino.
