The Global Gaming Awards are back for the ninth year. These are the most trusted and prestigious awards in the industry, due to the strict rules and procedures put in place to establish the nominees and later, the winners.
Companies and individuals are nominated based on merit and the reasons for their nominations are publicly available in the official Shortlist magazine which you can read further below.
Companies had the chance to submit self-nominations at the start of the year. Additionally, the Gambling Insider and Gaming America teams asked independent consultants for their recommendations before deciding on the final Shortlist.
“Our industry gets better, stronger, and more innovative month after month, so of course it’s normal that the nominations we receive for the Global Gaming Awards will be stronger year after year,” said Julian Perry, Editor-in-Chief of Gambling Insider and Gaming America.
“We can’t wait to celebrate all nominees in just a few weeks’ time”, he added.
This year’s event will reward operators and suppliers across 15 categories. The winners will be decided by a panel of over 100 C-level industry executives, including Sheila Morago, Executive Director of the Oklahoma Indian Gaming Association; John Connelly, Global CEO of Interblock Gaming; Ray Pineault, CEO of Mohegan; Kimberly Van Amburg, CEO of Casino Del Sol.
The voting process is independently adjudicated by KPMG in the Crown Dependencies to ensure full fairness and transparency. BetConstruct is the event’s Lead Partner, and category sponsors include IGT, CasinoTrac, Aristocrat Gaming, White Hat Gaming, Interblock Gaming, Relax Gaming, NOVOMATIC, Aruze Gaming, Bragg Gaming, Velvix, Amelco, EGT and Light & Wonder.
Winners will be revealed at a luncheon ceremony on 10 October. The event will be live-streamed for those who can’t be in attendance.
