After a lengthy voting process, including a self-nomination window and input from our Nominations Panel and the Gambling Insider team, our esteemed judges voted to crown this year’s winners.

Votes were made online by leading CEOs and executives from across the industry, before being adjudicated by KPMG.

We break down 2021’s winners, with a full list of the top threes in each category available at the bottom of this article.

This year’s big winners include bet365 and Kambi, who secured two Awards each. bet365 clinched the Online Sports Betting Operator Award, with bet365 Partners winning the Affiliate Program Award. Kambi, meanwhile, picked up the Retail Supplier and Online Sports Betting Supplier awards.

Evolution was another big winner at GGA London 2021. While Evolution itself won the Online Casino Supplier Award, Evolution-owned brands won three Awards in total, with NetEnt – Divine Fortune MegaWays scooping the Product Launch Award, and Red Tiger – Gonzo’s Quest MegaWays winning the Casino Product Award. It’s the second time in a row that Red Tiger has won the Award.

Another company that has defended its title is LeoVegas, with the Swedish-based group winning the Online Casino category for the fourth time in a row. And after a number of near-misses over the years, IGT has finally returned to winning ways, clinching success in the Casino Supplier category.

Industry titans Paddy Power won the Betting Shop Operator Award, with Trustly taking top spot in the Payment Solution category. Sportradar secured victory in the Services Provider category, while Kindred Group won the Social Responsibility Award.

And in a hugely competitive Chief Executive category, it was Casino Cosmopol’s Per Jaldung who came out on top.

“A massive congratulations to all the winners of this year’s Awards, and a big thanks to everyone who has taken part,” said Julian Perry, Gambling Insider COO. “It has been a trying time for the industry, but many companies have shown their resilience and determination to remain positive, and to put their customers and employees first.

“Congratulations must also go to the rest of the nominees, who we are sure will be back to clinch the top spot next time around.”

For a full breakdown of the original nominees, you can see our GGA Shortlist magazine, which can be found here – let’s not forget that nomination alone is an achievement worthy of distinction.
