The winners of the Global Gaming Awards London 2022 have been announced, following the ceremony this afternoon at the Hippodrome Casino.
As always, KPMG in the Crown Dependencies has independently adjudicated the Awards process, which employs voters from across the industry, including leading executives and CEOs.
The voting process followed a window of self-nominations and recommendations by our esteemed Nominations Panel, before the wider team at Gambling Insider reviewed all submissions. Our much-revered Judges issued the final vote on this year’s winners.
Unlike last year’s virtual event, 2022 has seen the return of the Global Gaming Awards London in person, at The Hippodrome Casino in London.
Here, we break down the winners of the 2022 Awards, with a full list of the top three from each category at the foot of this page.
2022’s big winners are bet365 and Kambi, who have both taken home two Awards each. Bet365 has won the award for Online Sports Betting Operator of the year for the fifth year in a row, as well as bet365 Partners winning best Affiliate Programme.
Kambi has defended both its titles from the previous year, taking the gongs for best Retail Supplier and Online Sports Betting Supplier of the Year.
LeoVegas has held onto its monopoly for the Online Casino of the Year Award, winning every year since the inception of the Global Gaming Awards London.
Operator Paddy Power has also held onto its status as best Betting Shop Operator, pipping William Hill to the Award this time around.
As well as high-flying operators hanging onto their Awards, suppliers too have been staunch in the defence of their titles.
IGT has once again been awarded Casino Supplier of the Year, while Evolution has retained its crown in the online space, taking home the Online Casino Supplier of the year Award.
This year’s race for the best Casino Product was particularly tight; so tight, in fact, that there are joint winners. Both Oryx Gaming’s – Fuze™ and Pariplay’s Fusion finished as joint winners.
And it’s The Hippodrome Casino which has taken the crown as Best Casino, trumping the Casino de Monte-Carlo and The Londoner Macau.
The Award for best Service Provider has gone to Internet Vikings, which has been recognised for its hosting solutions, while NetEnt’s Gordon Ramsay Hell’s Kitchen™ won Product Lauch of the Year.
Both Paysafe and Nuvei were listed among the best payment solution providers for gaming-related sites, but it was Trustly who took the gong as best Payments Solution.
Kindred Group received the accolade in the Social Responsibility category, while this year’s Executive of the Year was awarded to Denise Coates, Founder and Joint CEO of bet365.
At the event, Gambling Insider announced that before heading to Las Vegas in October, the Global Gaming Awards will be making one more stop.
There will be a dedicated Global Gaming Awards event for the Asian market with winners announced in August. More details will be revealed in the coming days on https://www.globalgamingawards.com/asia/
