The Global Gaming Awards London 2021 has just announced that the full list is now available. This is one of the most recognizable, respectable and prestigious awards in the gaming industry, not only because all shortlisted companies are nominated for a specific reason, but also because of the fair and rigorous voting process that ensures that the winners are truly deserving of their awards.
The shortlist has been finalized, after a period of self-nomination and analysis by the Gambling Insider editorial team, as well as the esteemed Award Nominating Panel. The selected companies were contacted a few months ago, but the full list has only just been released.
The Global Gaming Awards have 14 categories this year, as the Casino of the Year Award was suspended due to the COVID-19 pandemic, forcing casinos to remain closed for much of 2020. However, a new category has been introduced – Product Launch of the Year, sponsored by Kalamba Games.
There are 10 nominees in each category, with the exception of the ‘Executive of the Year’, which has 25 pre-selected executives. This is the only category that recognizes the individual and not the company.
Global Gaming Awards London highlights over 100 companies
This year’s Global Gaming Awards London Shortlist recognizes over 100 companies in different categories, and there are some new entrants to the nominees list; such as Scout Gaming Group, AstroPay, Soccabet, FDJ Gaming Solutions. Meanwhile, previous winners like Evolution, bet365, LeoVegas, Continent 8 Technologies will try to defend their titles.
“The Global Gaming Awards honor the best in the industry, and this year’s event is an example of how we were able to come together to show, albeit virtual, what should be celebrated. Among the 14 categories, each shortlisted company represents a high standard for others to aspire to,” said Gambling Insider CEO Gary Roudette.
