Today, Gambling Insider hosted the seventh edition of the Global Gaming Awards EMEA at London’s Hippodrome Casino.

The Global Gaming Awards are regarded as the most prestigious Awards in the gaming industry, due to the strict shortlisting and voting processes put in place.

“Congratulations to all of this year’s winners and a very well done to all those who were shortlisted,” said Mariya Savova, Event Manager of the Global Gaming Awards.

“As I said during the presentation, today was about collectively celebrating the success of all nominated companies.

This year’s Shortlist was very strong and I really wish we could give an award to every company on there, as it will be well-deserved,” she added.

Each company and individual was nominated for a specific reason, all of which you can find in the official Shortlist magazine (click here to read). We ensured that companies were only nominated once per category, meaning that if a company has multiple brands, only one of them could be shortlisted in a particular category. 

The Shortlist was decided through extensive research by our team, consultation with independent industry experts and review of hundreds of self-nominations, submitted by companies. 

The winners were chosen by 50 industry leaders, all with years of experience in the EMEA region, with KPMG in the Crown Dependencies independently adjudicating the voting process to ensure fairness and transparency. Some of the executives who participated in this year’s Judging Panel include: Sam Sadi, CEO of LiveScore Group; Karolina Pelc, CEO & Founder of BeyondPlay; Yared Gabretensaye, General Manager of Casino Cosmopol; Ebba Arnred, Co- Founder & CMO of Play’n GO.

Gambling Insider and the Global Gaming Awards would like to thank KPMG, all executives who joined the Judging Panel, The Hippodrome Casino for hosting the presentation ceremony, the event’s Lead Partner – BetConstruct and all category sponsors - Interblock Gaming, Digitain, EGT, Galaxsys, Bragg Gaming, SPRIBE, Imagine Live, Soft2Bet, WA.Technology, SOFTSWISS, Atlas-IAC and GR8 Tech.
