Gaming Intelligence is thrilled to announce the shortlist for the Gaming Intelligence Awards 2019.

This has been the most fiercely contested Awards yet with every category sparking much debate among our judges.

It has been a transformative year for the giants of our industry. GVC Holdings heads the Operator Awards with an astonishing five nominations, while The Stars Group lies in hot pursuit with four nominations and Kindred Group also had an outstanding year with three appearances on our shortlists.

Playtech leads the way in the Supplier Awards with a record-breaking six nominations and Scientific Gaming is not far behind with four nominations. However, there are plenty of up and coming suppliers challenging the big suppliers for honours, with Blueprint Gaming, Red Tiger Gaming, SBTech and Yggdrasil all bagging two nominations, as does old perennial Microgaming.

Join us on the opening day of the ICE expo in London at 1pm on Tuesday February 5th at our stand N9-549, when we unveil the Gaming Intelligence Awards winners and the Hot 50 with a complimentary glass of champagne for everyone.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank the judges for their careful deliberation. We hope this is a fun task but we understand it is another responsibility above and beyond the normal call of duty. We could not have done it without you. Thank you all.

And a special thank you to our sponsors: Aspire Global, Red Tiger Gaming and SG Digital.

See you at ICE. From 1pm on Tuesday February 5th at stand N9-549 for the Gaming Intelligence Awards 2019. Come and get a glass of champagne and a copy of GIQ Magazine, where the Awards Winners and the Hot 50 will be celebrated in full.
