The Global Gaming Awards 2016 will welcome back NYX Gaming Group as the Lead Partner of the awards when it returns to Las Vegas next year.

The leading worldwide provider of e-gaming software has supported the awards for the past two years and has now agreed to extend that backing to 2016.

Deepak Malkani, commercial director at Gambling Insider, which powers the Global Gaming Awards, said: “We are thrilled that NYX Gaming Group has chosen to partner with us once again.

“With their ongoing support, the awards will continue to go from strength to strength."

NYX group commercial director David Johnson added: "We are delighted to once again support the Global Gaming Awards, especially given the Awards are voted on by a panel of 50 judges made up of highly respected executives from across the land-based and digital gaming sectors.“

The 2015 Global Gaming Awards were presented during a high profile presentation ceremony in the Titian Ballroom of the Venetian Palazzo Congress Center during G2E Vegas this month.

A total of 115 nominees, made up of organisations and individuals, had been shortlisted across 12 categories covering the land-based and digital gaming industries.

Big winners included operator MGM Resorts International, which picked up three awards, as well as providers Scientific Games, IGT and Microgaming, who collected two each.

The Global Gaming Awards are powered by Gambling Insider and presented to the industry in association with G2E Vegas.

KPMG Gibraltar is the official voting adjudicator of the Global Gaming Awards, ensuring a fair and transparent voting process.
