The Shortlist for the Global Gaming Awards Las Vegas 2020 is now available

By Tim Poole

The full Shortlist for the Global Gaming Awards Las Vegas 2020 is now ready to view, ahead of its seventh edition.

The Awards, going virtual for the first time due to the COVID-19-enforced cancellation of G2E 2020, will see companies battle it out across 12 competitive categories.

Receiving a nomination is an outstanding achievement for any gaming company and is clear proof the organisation is rated among the world’s very best.

The winners in all 12 categories will be confirmed during our virtual ceremony on Tuesday 27 October, at 1.30pm Eastern Time, the perfect way to kick off the G2E show.

Gambling Insider COO Julian Perry said: “During such a difficult year for the gaming sector, especially retail and land-based, it’s a privilege to bring you the Shortlist for the Global Gaming Awards Las Vegas 2020.

“We wish the very best to all nominated companies and we are certain the Judges will have a difficult time separating such ultra-competitive fields across all categories.”

Aristocrat went home with two Awards during the 2019 ceremony, although the competitive nature of the Awards and the diversity of the industry was well reflected, with 11 overall winners across the 12 categories.

The Shortlist was compiled through a lengthy process, which began with a period of self-nominations put forward by hopefuls, and recommendations made by the Nomination Panel.

The final Shortlist was then decided by members of the Gambling Insider team after much deliberation.

All nominated companies were asked to provide a supporting statement to the Judging Panel, outlining why they should be chosen to take home the Award.

This year’s Judging Panel has reached 100 Judges for the second year in a row, providing proof of the Awards’ growth in popularity since the inaugural ceremony in 2014, as well as cementing the consistency of the Awards’ success.

The Judges place their first and second-choice votes in all categories and the voting process is independently adjudicated by KMPG Isle of Man, ensuring full fairness and transparency.

The Awards are powered by Gambling Insider and Gaming America, in association with G2E, with BetConstruct returning as Lead Partner of the Awards for the fourth time. All nominations in all categories are explained in-depth in the Global Gaming Awards Las Vegas 2020 Shortlist magazine, which is available to read on GamblingInsider.com and via the Gambling Insider app on iOS and Android devices.

All winners will be confirmed on GamblingInsider.com shortly after the presentation ceremony and will be available to view on GlobalGamingAwards.com/Vegas. The winners will also be listed in that week’s GI Friday.
