TheoGaming is Back from iGB Live! Amsterdam 2021 Feeling Excited to Share the Experience

Bubbling with enthusiasm, we would love to share our emotions and ideas about one of the most important iGaming events of the year that left us in high spirits without a doubt.

iGB Affiliate

Following almost two years of COVID-imposed isolation, the Dutch Government lifted quarantine restrictions right before the iGB Live! would open its doors to worldwide iGaming industry experts and associates at RAI, Amsterdam on September 28 - October 1, 2021.

The TheoGaming team was among the first fortunate gambling and SEO enthusiasts to become part of this significant conference and showcase for the entire online casino market. In a few words, we spent a wonderful two days networking, got a little hoarse, but loaded up by tons of positive impressions from meetings, reconnections, new business contacts and just socialization with like-minded people as a whole.

A Perfect Synergy of Everything

The highly anticipated iGB Live! and iGB Affiliate Amsterdam joint event let us all forget about Novel Coronavirus hysteria for a few days and feel happy networking in the city of Amsterdam.

The RAI floor united together Affiliate Companies, WebMasters, Esports, Software Providers, Payment methods, and other B2B entities. Each and every one of them made quite an effort to give everyone who happened to be at their booth a true carnival.

The relaxed atmosphere never ended there, since the afterparty networking drinks at Strandzuid restaurant would only fuel the substantive discussions.

It was a pleasure meeting our precious partners there, Dream Team, Casumo Affiliates, Betsson Group, Leo Vegas, Chili Partners, Full Cream Affiliates, 21 Partners, Chili Partners, EGO, Mancala, Rex Affiliates just to name a few.

Our Top Things To Do in Amsterdam after iGB Live!

Despite its modest size, Amsterdam can easily compete with the largest cities in Europe in terms of sights’ number. The magnificent architecture, endless picturesque canals and the extraordinary atmosphere of Amsterdam make it a unique city that hides many intriguing surprises.

Amsterdam Canal Cruise

Amsterdam is often referred to as the "Venice of the North" due to the large number of canals that line the city. So, if you happen to be in Amsterdam for the first time, the best option to not miss it all, would be to start with a boat tour and an audio guide down to Amsterdam's UNESCO protected canal ring.

Address: Blue Boat Company, Stadhouderskade 501 (near Rijksmuseum and Hard Rock café)
Working hours: daily, 10:00 to 21:50
Admission ticket: from €15.


Art lovers need to see the state museum of Amsterdam - Rijksmuseum. We highly recommend that you reserve a full day (within the working hours) for this particular spot to be able to see all the exhibits - the collection is huge!

Here you will find an excellent selection of paintings by Dutch masters, from Frans Hals to Jan Vermeer. The pride of the museum is the world famous masterpiece by Rembrandt "Night Watch". However, the vast museum fund is not limited only to canvases; the exhibition halls showcase wonderful specimens of Delft Blue porcelain, luxurious jewelry made of gold and silver, old costumes and furniture from the royal palaces of Europe.

Address: Museumstraat 1, 1071 XX.
Working hours: daily, 9:00 to 17:00
Admission ticket: €20.

Van Gogh Museum

One of the most popular tourist places in Amsterdam, right next to Rijksmuseum is the Van Gogh Museum that honors one of the most prominent natives of the Netherlands. The Van Gogh Museum houses the world's largest collection of paintings by the famous artist, as well as his letters. The first two floors showcase masterpieces by Van Gogh that are displayed in chronological order, so that visitors can observe the evolution of his style. The third floor is completely devoted to the history of the master's life. The fourth floor is home to paintings by artists who worked at the same time as Van Gogh.

Address: Paulus Potterstraat 7, 1071 CX.
Working hours: Saturday through Thursday, 9:00 to 17:00, on Fridays - 9:00 to 22:00
Admission ticket: €19.

Floating Flower Market

This small kingdom of flora in the heart of Amsterdam is the world's only floating flower market. All week long vendors can be seen on the banks of the Singel Canal on barges loaded with flowers, seeds and bulbs. This is a great entertainment spot for tourists and locals. Most of the merchandise here is sold prepared for export so that guests of the city can easily take home tulips, daffodils and other flowers as a keepsake of Amsterdam.

Address: Singel, 1071 AZ.
Working hours: Monday through Saturday 9:00 to 17:30, on Sundays 11:00 to 17:30


We spent hours and hours walking through Amsterdam's neighborhoods and Jordaan was one of the most remarkable areas.This place is familiar for Anne Frank House, as well as the Western Church with the tomb of Rembrandt, who lived in the area at one time. In fact, It is also just a beautiful place that is a mixture of residential buildings with small gardens, vivid markets, and a number of boutiques and cafes.

Eateries in Amsterdam

WWell, they say, if you come to Amsterdam, you must try herring from a herring cart. In our case, we’ve had a hard time finding the actual herring, since it was completely sold out at every herring cart that we showed up at. We tried the second typical Dutch snack - eel from “haringhandels” (small kiosks that sell raw herring and eels). This may sound a little scary, but you should give it a try. They serve the fish in a small sandwich with pickles and onions.

It is also impossible to come to the Netherlands and fail to try their cheeses. We advise you to drop by one of Henri Willig's cheese stores for savouring or purchasing all kinds of young and aged cheeses from them. You will also be amazed to find crafted beers made out of whey from their own Jersey cow milk. Or get a ticket to Amsterdam Cheese Museum, working daily from 10:00 to 18:00 at Prinsengracht 112, 1015 EA Amsterdam.

There are lots of good places to drink quality beer and not only. We dove into a pretty nice laid-back Dutch pub atmosphere in Café Old Sailor while friendly AFC Ajax fans were watching the game.

If you need a cool place to have a cosy dinner with friends, a great place would be Kapitein Zeppos. This magnetizing café-style restaurant is located in a building that used to be a monastery in the XVth century, later a storage for horse carriages, and later a cigar factory. The diner meets guests with Mediterranean cuisine and good selections of wine and beer!

As a cream of the crop, we chose an ideal place to have our last dinner in Amsterdam and celebrate our profitable and very informative journey to iGB Live! and iGB Affiliate Amsterdam - Brasserie Van Baerle. This place is probably one of the most well-known restaurants in Amsterdam, featuring French modern cuisine. The restaurant serves mouth-watering oysters, fish, desserts, and by all means they will offer you the best wine pairing to add a richer flavour to every course. And quite acceptable pricing for such a stylish place that, by the way, is acknowledged by 2021 MICHELIN Guide Netherlands.

To Sum Up…

We had a total blast! iGB Live! and iGB Affiliate Amsterdam 2021 made it possible to bring together iGaming professionals and experts from around the world at the right time and in the right place!
