Tonight (Monday, February 6) will see the 10th International Gaming Awards ceremony take place in at prestigious InterContinental London Park Lane in the heart of Mayfair. Every year, the IGA attracts a big number of visitors, from the industry insiders to gaming clients. All of them come together to celebrate the special occasion and share the joy with those most deserving of an award in different categories.
With the awards ceremony being just hours away, we have the shortlist of nominees in different categories. Those who made the shortlist can look forward to tonight, as they stand a good chance to win the prestigious reward tonight.
There is a large number of categories and nominees in the pipeline, so we’ll highlight just a few:
Casino / Integrated Resort: Crown Resorts, Caesars EMEA, Wynn Macau, Olympic Park Casino, Galaxy Entertainment
Casino Operator Europe: Caesars Entertainment UK, Aspers Group, Casino Poland, Grosvenor Casinos, Group Partouche, Olympic Entertainment
iGaming Software Supplier: Microgaming, IGT, NetEnt, Yggdrasil, Betconstruct, Evolution Gaming, Pilot Games, Videoslots, SBTech
Mobile Operator: Gala Bingo, Cherry Casino, Unibet, Mr Green, Leo Vegas, Sky Betting & Gaming
Other categories include awards for casino operators in other parts of the world, like Americas and Australia, online casino and poker operator, slots operator, technology provider, etc. One particularly interesting category is the Great Place to Work Award, in which NetEnt and Leo Vegas also made the shortlist, together with a few other companies.
While the focus of the IGA is on honoring the most deserving in the industry, they also try not to lose sight of what’s really important – helping those less fortunate. The IGA has been continuously supporting a number of worthwhile charities over the past ten years, with the biggest emphasis on CARE, an organization dedicated to improving lives of those living in poverty around the globe.
Other charities that the IGA supports and helps include Children with Cancer UK, Breakthrough Brest Cancer, and the Responsible Gaming Trust.
So far, they’ve helped raise more than £250,000.
