Asia's inaugural Global Gaming Awards will be held virtually, recognising the most successful companies and individuals in the Asian gaming market

The most prestigious Awards ceremony in the gaming industry, the Global Gaming Awards, will launch in Asia for the very first time this August.

On 22 August 2022, The Global Gaming Awards will launch in their third continental region, following North America and Europe.

However, owing to persistent Covid-19 restrictions that continue to plague various regions in Asia, the Awards will be held virtually this year.

Gambling Insider sincerely hopes to stage Asia’s second Global Gaming Awards in person in 2023.

First launched in Las Vegas in 2014 – before expanding to London in 2018 – The Global Gaming Awards have fast become the benchmark for recognising efforts made by companies and executives throughout the year.

Nominees are always Shortlisted on merit, with the winners chosen by our C-level Judging Panel. What’s more, KPMG in the Crown Dependencies independently adjudicates the voting process to ensure full transparency and fairness.

The case will be the same for the inaugural Asia Awards, which will celebrate a plethora of newly developed integrated resorts and the launch of several products in Asia over the past year.

Gambling Insider Editor-in-Chief Julian Perry said: “Asia is already one of the largest gambling markets in the world and we expect this expansion to continue.

“The Global Gaming Awards Asia have been in the works for a while now and we are certainly excited to officially announce this event taking place later in 2022.”

There are nine categories available at Asia’s first Global Gaming Awards:

Casino Operator of the Year: Rewarding the operator of casinos that has gone above and beyond to create the best possible customer experience across all its properties.

Casino Supplier of the Year: Recognising the efforts of the supplier who drives the development of casino properties.

Integrated Resort of the Year: Acknowledging the Integrated Resort (new or old) that pushes the boundaries of customer experience.

Casino Product of the Year: Recognising the product that improves players’ experience, or operators’ ability to run their casino.

Table Game of the Year: Rewarding the table game or ETG that stood out from the rest on the casino floor.

Corporate Social Responsibility of the Year: Recognising the company that goes to great lengths in its commitment to CSR.

Digital Supplier of the Year: Rewarding the best software or online games supplier.

Digital Operator of the Year: Acknowledging the operator who drives forward the digital gaming vertical.

The window for self-nomination ran from April to June this year, with a host of Asia-facing companies submitting bids for consideration. You can stay tuned for all the latest updates from The Global Gaming Awards Asia at www.gamblinginsider.com this August.
