The Global Gaming Awards London 2021 are delighted to announce that the full Shortlist is now available to read.
The Global Gaming Awards are the most recognised, reputable and prestigious Awards in the gaming industry, not only because every shortlisted company is nominated for a specific reason, but also because of the fair and rigorous voting process, which ensures winners are truly deserving of their Awards.
The Shortlist was finalised, following a period of self-nominations and analysis from the Gambling Insider editorial team, as well as the Awards’ esteemed Nomination Panel. Shortlisted companies were contacted a couple of months ago, but the full Shortlist has only been made public now.
This year the Awards have 14 categories as the Casino of the Year Award has been suspended due to the COVID-19 pandemic, forcing casinos to remain shut for the better part of 2020. However, a new category has been introduced – Product Launch of the Year, sponsored by Kalamba Games.
There are 10 nominees in each category with the exception of Chief Executive of the Year, which has 25 shortlisted executives. This is the only category that recognises the individual rather than the company.
This year’s Global Gaming Awards London Shortlist recognises over 100 companies across the different categories, and there are quite a few new entrants in the nominees list; such as Scout Gaming Group, AstroPay, Soccabet, FDJ Gaming Solutions. Meanwhile, past winners such as Evolution, bet365, LeoVegas, Continent 8 Technologies will try and defend their titles.
“The Global Gaming Awards honour the best in the business, and this year’s event is an example of how we’ve been able to collectively pull together to showcase, albeit virtual, what should be celebrated,” said Gambling Insider CEO, Gary Roudette. “Across the 14 categories, every Shortlisted company represents a high standard for others to aspire to.”
Vigen Badalyan, Founder & CEO of BetConstruct, the Lead Partner of the Global Gaming Awards 2021, added: “Even in the most trying times, the GGA with the support of BetConstruct have delivered the powerfully important and unequivocally impartial Awards to the companies that have fully deserved the acclamations."
The voting process for the Global Gaming Awards London 2021 is currently underway, with 50 industry CEOs choosing the winners and KPMG monitoring the entire process. This year’s stellar Judging Panel includes Itai Pazner, CEO, 888 Holdings; Carsten Koerl, Group CEO, Sportradar; Renato Ascoli, CEO Global Gaming, IGT; Tsachi Maimon, CEO, Aspire Global and many more.
Until we can announce the winners virtually on 28 June, it is our absolute pleasure to share the full Shortlist with you.
The Global Gaming Awards London are powered by Gambling Insider. BetConstruct is the event’s Lead Partner and the voting process is independently adjudicated by KPMG in the Crown Dependencies, to ensure full transparency and fairness. Category sponsors include Singular, Nuvei, Digitain, Fast Track, Pronet Gaming, Kalamba Games, Altenar, 1xBet, Elys Game Technology and Connective Games.
