Global Gaming Awards are a prestigious event that celebrates the leading companies and most dynamic individuals that have made their contribution to the global gaming industry in the previous year. The Awards take place once a year in London and this year’s Global Gaming Awards took place yesterday, on February 3rd. The previous year was successful and quite challenging for the gaming companies and the best of them have managed to ensure their places in the Global Gaming Awards 2020.
Moreover, the Global Gaming Awards are about recognising competition across gaming markets and stimulate them to become more successful. Being nominated for a Global Gaming Award is a clear sign of success for any gaming company. The Awards are a reputable event in the gaming world and they celebrate operational quality for the previous 12 months.
Global Gaming Awards 2020 Nominations
Two weeks before Global Gaming Awards took place, the nominations were revealed and the full Shortlist was available to view online. The most successful gaming companies were nominated in 16 categories. For each Award, the nominee with the most first-choice voters from the Judging Panel will triumph while the nominee with the most second-choice voters will be announced as the winner. All nominees were excited to be nominated and to be part of such a ceremony.
As we could see from the nominations, last year’s winner Bet365 was nominated in the Online Sports Betting Operator of the Year category as well as in the Affiliate Programme of the Year category. Furthermore, the casino market has seen some excellent products in the previous year and the best companies made it to the list for Casino Product of the Year - Red Tiger Gaming, Big Time Gaming, and Betsoft Gaming. 888 Holdings were nominated in two categories - Online Sports Betting Operator and Online Casino. The full list of nominations can be seen in the Global Gaming Awards 2020 Shortlist magazine available online.
Global Gaming Awards 2020 Winners
Yesterday, the winners of the Global Gaming Awards 2020 were announced at an afternoon tea ceremony at the Hippodrome Casino in London. Bet365 enjoyed a successful event by winning in the two categories where they were nominated. In addition, the Awards were pretty triumphant for the Red Tiger Gaming that won Casino Product of the Year and its CEO Gavin Hamilton won in the Chief Executive of the Year category. Red Tiger Gaming has made excellent progress in the previous years so it’s no surprise that they’ve managed to go home with two awards.
The winners in all 16 categories were decided by a Judging Panel composed of more than 50 experts from the gaming industry, just like last year’s awards. Julian Perry, the COO of Gambling Insider presented the ceremony and thanked everyone who helped in creating the fairest Awards in the gaming industry. He congratulated all winners and said that he is looking forward to this year’s innovations before the next Awards take place next year. The lead partner of this year’s Global Gaming Awards was BetConstruct. The voting process was officially performed by KPMG Isle of Man that ensured transparency and fairness.
