With Eman halfway around the world in Manila, Philippines, carving out new opportunities for the iGaming industry in Asia, Oliver De Bono, COO of SiGMA Group, accepted the award on his behalf. He spoke briefly to say, "If Eman was here, he’d say that this award doesn’t belong to him, it belongs to everyone in this room because we’re all contributing to the same industry".
Upon hearing about the awards, Eman Pulis later sent a video of thanks, saying, "Thank you so much for voting for me and for giving me this prestigious award". He added, "It means a lot to me, especially in this period when I’m alone in Manila trying to pave the way for many European companies to consider moving offices here, co-locating in Asia and opening your business".
