Gaming Intelligence has announced the shortlists for the Gaming Intelligence Awards 2016 with Playtech grabbing a place on the shortlist for bingo, casino and poker supplier of the year.

Betfair, bet365 and Gala Coral lead the operator categories, each with two places on the Awards shortlists. All three are shortlisted for the prestigious Sports Betting Operator of the Year award along with Paddy Power and Unibet. Bet365 won the award last year and will be hoping to retain the title.

Microgaming and Scientific Games each win a place on two supplier shortlists. Scientific Games will be hoping to retain its status as Lottery Supplier of the Year and is challenging last year’s winner NetEnt plus Evolution Gaming, Playtech and Quickspin for the title of Casino Supplier of the Year.

The Gaming Intelligence Awards will be announced and presented at the ICE Totally Gaming expo in London next week. The Gaming Intelligence Hot 50 will also be published on Tuesday next week. The Hot 50 rewards individuals who had a brilliant 2015 or those in a position of influence going into 2016. It celebrates those working behind the scenes and those in the executive hot seats.

There is no shortlist for the One to Watch Award or the Socially Responsible Operator of the Year Award, which each go to a standout performer. Last year these were won by Leander Games and bet365 respectively.
