Global Gaming Awards Las Vegas 2018 Shortlist is now live
By David Cook

Following months of deliberating, the companies who have been successful in making the 2018 Global Gaming Awards Las Vegas Shortlist are being contacted now.

This comes after a lengthy and detailed process, where self-nominations, together with the eight-strong nomination panel’s recommendations, are analysed before the decisions for the final list are made.

The Global Gaming Awards Las Vegas winners will be announced at a luncheon ceremony at Sands Expo Las Vegas on Monday 8 October, which will be held during the G2E show.

This will be the fifth edition of the ceremony, which celebrates achievements made across the industry. A total of 12 Awards will be presented, and there are 10 nominees in each category.

Being nominated in the Global Gaming Awards is a clear sign of success for any organisation, which if it makes it onto the list, will be in esteemed company.

Among the winners at last year’s ceremony were industry giants MGM Resorts, Wynn Resorts, Bet365, IGT and Scientific Games.

Four new categories have been created for this year’s Awards, as the honours of American Executive of the Year, Property of the Year, Slot of the Year and Product Innovation of the Year are all up for grabs.

Nominees now have a chance to submit a supporting statement that will be sent to the panel of more than 65 judges, who will decide the winners.

The judging panel is made up of some of the most powerful executives from some of the most significant companies in the industry.

KPMG Isle of Man will adjudicate the voting process to ensure full transparency.

A detailed breakdown of all nominees in all 12 categories will appear in the Global Gaming Awards Las Vegas 2018 Shortlist magazine, which will be released in September and distributed at G2E.
