Four New Categories For 2018

Quite exciting is the fact that this year’s awards ceremony will include four brand new awards categories. According to a reputable news source, these are: American Executive of the Year, Property of the Year, Pokie of the Year, and Product Innovation of the Year.

Now that the nominations have been made public, those who have been nominated must now submit a statement of motivation, which will then in turn be taken into consideration by the panel of judges.

The panel consists of over 65 judges, all of which will have a say in deciding who the winners of the prestigious awards will be, based on the nominations and the reports that have been received from the nominees. In order to ensure that the nominations process follows a fair and transparent path, independent auditors KPMG Isle of Man will oversee the voting process.

A nice touch to the proceedings is the fact that the names of the nominees in the various categories will be published in the Global Gaming Awards Las Vegas 2018 Shortlist magazine during the month of September. The magazine will be distributed during the G2E.
