How Did 1xbet Win?
Asked why he thought 1xBet won the ‘Esports Operator of the Year’ category, the company’s representative underlined 1xBet’s expertise in the field. 1xBet has strived for some time to promote esports, providing its customers with a variety of betting markets to choose from.

Pointing out that the bookmaker had been nominated in the category two years running, 1xBet’s representative said the win served as further proof of how successful the company had been, even during a difficult year.
