The list of nominees for the Global Gaming Awards in London has been revealed and it features a huge number of nominees for all 16 categories. The list was put together after a rather extensive procedure that consisted of self-nominations, recommendations, screenings, and selection. This was done by an esteemed panel that included the editorial team of the Gambling Insider.
Those who find themselves as nominees for these awards indicate that they have been successful in the past 12 months as part of the gaming industry. These awards are given to gaming industry companies that displayed operational excellence in the past year. It is also a way of recognizing the many different entities in the industry that have made a difference in the year that passed.
Some of the notable nominees for these awards include Ladbrokes, which is nominated once again for the Betting Shop Operator of the Year title. It is looking to defend this title this year against a long list of other international brands. Also included in the list is Bet365, which is nominated once again for Online Sports Betting Operator of the Year. They are also trying for a back-to-back this year along with another title that they won last year, which is the Affiliate Program of the Year.
One of the biggest awards for this event is the Product of the Year award for Casino games. The list of nominees for this particular award is pretty long, with popular developers vying for this honor including Yggdrasil, Red Tiger, WorldMatch, and Ganapati, to name a few.
