In a world that is slowly trying to adapt to this new normality, traditional meetings are taking place again. Last night, a number of executives of the gaming sector attended the 14th edition of the International Gaming Awards. Managed by Clever Duck Media, these prizes reward absolute brilliance in the industry. This year’s 30 categories were designed to reflect innovative technologies, as well as recognize excellence across the sector and focus on social responsibility and employee wellbeing.
The Savoy Hotel London (United Kingdom) received lots of representatives from land-based and iGaming segments, operators, providers, suppliers, all fantastic, hard-working companies. Some of them left the place empty handed, but with people hearts full of joy after meeting once again their peers in an in-person scenario. On the contrary, other companies have their trophies. With two statues were firms like IGT (‘Technology Provider/Supplier’, and ‘Lottery Product of the Year’, for its Mobile Lottery Solution) and Kindred Group, or operators such as Betsson Group (‘Mobile Operator of the Year’ and ‘Safer Gambling Operator of the Year’), Galaxy Entertainment, Coolbet and ComeOn.
Other award-winning companies were LeoVegas Group (‘Online Gaming Operator of the Year’), Scientific Games (‘Sustainable Business’), 1XBet (‘Live Casino of the Year’), Digitain (‘Sports Betting Platform of the Year’), and UltraPlay (‘eSports Betting Software of the Year’), among others.
Besides, Clever Duck Media also organized the 14th Charity Focused International Gaming Awards & Gala Dinner. Tomorrow, at The Londoner Hotel, the 11th Industry Diversity Awards will also occur.
In short, the awards, the joy, the recognition of the effort and the creativity, and the respect for those brands that continue to make history in the sector returned.
