OKTO, the leading fintech brand, has underlined the power of its world class payment technology having been named Mobile Payment Solution of the year at the eighth edition of the SBC Awards which was held in front of a gaming industry audience at the prestigious Evolution London on 14 December. The brand, which specialises in innovative digital payment solutions and applications across multiple industries including gaming, leisure, hospitality and retail, beat-off a number of high-profile challengers in the annual awards.

Andrew McCarron, Managing Director of SBC, said: “Judging this edition of the Awards has been the most difficult yet, thanks to the fantastic innovation, creativity, and leadership shown across the industry over the last 12 months. The 2021 SBC Awards attracted a record number of entries, and the quality was uniformly high across the board. Award winners were decided by an independent panel of judges and OKTO’s success in being named Mobile Payment Solution of the year is a fantastic testament to the technology, the innovation and the vision that lies behind the brand. Being an SBC Award winner really is a hallmark of excellence.”

Diana Theodoridi, Marketing Director at OKTO said: “It’s fantastic to have received this accolade at one of the most prestigious and meaningful awards events in the gaming space. Every sector of the economy is driven by innovation but perhaps none more so than the gaming industry which is recognised as being one of the earliest adopters of new technology.

“At OKTO we view innovation as being part of our business culture and what we all do on a daily basis. The team is made-up of people who have gaming running through their veins and who are both passionate and knowledgeable about the industry. This Award therefore means a huge amount to the OKTO team as we continue to establish the brand as the industry’s foremost and preferred cashless payments app.”
