The winners of the Global Gaming Awards London 2023 were revealed at an invite-only event at London’s iconic Hippodrome Casino.
The Global Gaming Awards are the most reputable and prestigious Awards in the gaming industry, mainly due to the strict nomination and voting processes. Each company and individual is always nominated for a specific reason which is released in the public domain, in the official Shortlist magazine, which you can find here. The London Awards event recognises companies and individuals with outstanding performance outside of the Americas over the past 12 months.
“Huge congratulations to all those who took an award home today,” said Julian Perry, Editor-in-Chief of Gambling Insider.
“Let’s also remember that today was about celebrating all shortlisted companies, so to all those who were nominated but didn’t win - you should still be very proud,” he added.
The winners were chosen by a panel of 50 C-level industry executives, including Daniela Johansson, Deputy CEO of Paf, Jordan Levin, CEO of OpenBet, Pascal Camia, COO of Monte-Carlo Société des Bains de Mer, Pieter Boers Vice President Gaming & Services at Holland Casino, Tiina Siltanen, General Manager at Casino Helsinki & Tampere, Daniela Vella, COO of ComeOn Group.
KPMG in the Crown Dependencies independently adjudicated the voting process to ensure full fairness and transparency. The Global Gaming Awards are powered by Gambling Insider and BetConstruct is the event’s Lead Partner.
