On January 23, 2012 the 2012 International Gaming Awards will take place at Sheraton Park Lane Hotel in London, England. This is considered to be one of the global gaming industry’s biggest and most prestigious events. Winners are selected from a group of nominees and will be awarded for the contributions that they have made to the gaming industry within the past year.
October 18, 2011 is the deadline for all nominations, which will be reviewed by a group of judges who will determine the winner for each award category. There are many different categories from which nominees can win including best online casino, best poker room and best bingo site, as well as software supplier and creativity awards.
In addition, a brand new category – the best mobile operator – will be included in the upcoming awards. This category has been added due to the increasing number of mobile operators and the advancements that have been made in mobile technology. This award has been created in recognition of innovations made within the online gaming industry and the importance of these innovations and what they represent.
However, despite the new award, the biggest honor of the evening is always the best online casino operator of the year award. In order to be win, an internet casino operator needs to have been exceptional in several key areas such as creative branding, marketing scheme and payment processing capabilities to name a few.
Every year the awards are held it becomes increasingly important to the international online gambling industry. This will be the fifth 2012 International Gaming Awards event.
