After months of anticipation the full Shortlist for the Global Gaming Awards Las Vegas is now available to read.
The Global Gaming Awards are the most trusted and prestigious awards in the industry, due to the strict rules and procedures put in place throughout the shortlisting and voting processes.
Every company and individual is nominated for a reason which is available to read in the official Shortlist magazine. Companies and individuals were nominated following a period of self-nominations. Additionally, the Gaming America and Gambling Insider teams asked independent consultants for their opinion and recommendations before deciding on the final Shortlist.
“Every year we say that this is our strongest Shortlist so far, but every year that is indeed the truth,” said Julian Perry, Editor-in-Chief of Gaming America and Gambling Insider.
“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,” he added.
This year’s event will reward operators and suppliers across 15 categories. The latest addition to the categories list is Sportsbook Supplier of the year which was added due to the phenomenal growth sports betting has seen across the US and Canada which would not be possible without the industry’s top suppliers.
The Awards winners will be decided by a panel of over 100 C-level industry executives, including Brooks Pierce, President & COO of Inspired Entertainment; Anna Sainsbury, CEO & Founder of GeoComply; Richard Schwartz, CEO of Rush Street Interactive; Anika Howard, CEO of Wondr Nation; Derek Stevens, CEO & Owner of Circa Resort & Casino; Kelly Carpino, CEO of the Wyandotte Tribe of Oklahoma.
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 October 10. The event will be live-streamed for those who can’t be in attendance.
