AffiliateINSIDER has been confirmed as the exclusive media partner for the AskGamblers Awards 2018, a ceremony designed to recognise the best online casinos over the last year, which will be held in Belgrade on Thursday 17 January.

AI founder and CEO Lee-Ann Johnstone, supported by newly-appointed Marketing Manager Natalie Lees, will be making the trip to the Serbian capital to cover the gala event live, which features the following key casino industry nominations – Best Casino, Best New Casino and Best Slot.

Johnstone commented: “As an affiliate marketing media partner, we are proud to support this unique AskGamblers initiative. AffiliateINSIDER is a business purposefully built on and around supporting innovation and affiliate growth in the igaming industry.
