The Global Gaming Awards Las Vegas are returning for a milestone 10th edition this October.

Gaming America is happy to share that the Shortlist for the 10th annual Global Gaming Awards Las Vegas has been decided. Shortlisted companies will be contacted in the next couple of weeks and the full Shortlist will be revealed in the public domain in early September.

The Global Gaming Awards are the most trusted and prestigious Awards in the gaming industry, recognizing and rewarding the strongest performers from both the operator and the supplier sides across the previous 12 months.

There are three Global Gaming Awards events a year: the flagship event in Las Vegas, which this year is celebrating a milestone 10th edition and recognizes the top performers from the Americas; an event in London, held in early February, which is dedicated to the EMEA gaming industry, and the Global Gaming Awards Asia-Pacific, held in May, which reward the best of the best from the APAC gaming industry.

“Very well done to all the companies who have made this year’s Shortlist for the Global Gaming Awards Las Vegas,” said Julian Perry, Editor-in-Chief of Gaming America and Gambling Insider.

“Those who have received a nomination should be extremely proud as this means they are one of the ten best in their field in what is probably the most competitive market in the industry.

“We can’t wait to share the good news with all shortlisted companies and most of all, we can’t wait to celebrate everyone’s achievements this October in Las Vegas. This year we’re also celebrating the 10th edition of our event so it’s extra special for us,” he added.

The Global Gaming Awards are known for their rigorous shortlisting and voting processes. The Shortlist was decided after carefully reviewing self-nominations submitted by companies. Additionally, we asked independent industry consultants for their recommendations. 

Every company and individual are always nominated for a specific reason which will be made available in the public domain and seen by the Judging Panel. Shortlisted companies have the chance to submit a short supporting statement which will also be seen by the Judging Panel.

Companies can only be nominated once per category, which means that if a company has multiple brands, only one of them can be nominated in a particular category. There is an equal number of nominees (ten) across all company categories.

The winners will be decided by a panel of over 100 C-level executive from the Americas gaming industry. Only one executive per company is invited to participate and the voting process is independently adjudicated by KPMG in the Crown Dependencies.

The winners will be revealed at a luncheon ceremony on October 9 at The Venetian Las Vegas. Companies can book their tables now on the event’s official website. The ceremony will be live-streamed for those who can’t be in attendance.

BetConstruct, the technology and services provider for the online and land-based gaming industry, is the Lead Partner of the Global Gaming Awards Las Vegas 2023, and category sponsors include IGT, Bragg Gaming, Spribe, Aristocrat Gaming, Interblock, Light & Wonder, Play’n GO, Novomatic, CasinoTrac, EGT and Kambi.

The Shortlist for American Executive of the year, the only category which recognizes individuals rather than companies, will be announced separately next month on Gaming America's website.
