The Biggest Online Gaming Awards are Around the Corner!

By Debra SaundersGoogle


The online gambling industry is gearing up for the two biggest award ceremonies of the year - the EGR (eGaming Review) Awards and the International Gaming Awards.  This will mark the 7th consecutive year for the EGR awards and the 5th for the International Gaming Awards.  AS is customary in the online casino industry, both ceremonies will take place in London and will both include charitable events benefiting organizations like Children with Leukemia and CARE International.

The EGR awards are set to take place on November 30th 2011 at the HAC in London.  The host of this year's festivities will be no other than top UK comedienne and TV personality Rufus Hound.  All nominations have already been submitted and it seems that online casino William Hill has taken the lead with 12 different award nominations.  Similar to the Academy Awards, the panel of judges judging the contestants are part of the industry themselves.

The International Gaming Awards is scheduled for January 23, 2012 and will take place in London's Sheraton Park Lane hotel.   Both award ceremonies have now added mobile gambling to their list of awards so it will be interesting to see which brands are industry leaders across all fronts and which brands dominate only single categories.  Aside from being an important event which sets the international bar for the industry, these events also serve as important networking events and are attended by operators, software developer and advertisers alike.
