The Global Gaming Awards Las Vegas 2022 has its shortlists ready to go with a total of 15 awards up for grabs. What makes the GGA 2022 Las Vegas so special is this event has a diverse mix of land-based and online casino awards.

The lead sponsor and partner for the awards ceremony is BetConstruct, which is already an award-winning company while we also see sponsorships from brand names we know well in the MGA, UKGC and CEG licenced online gambling scene.

Relax Gaming is in the mix. The developer recently won the EGR B2B 2022 ‘Mobile Gaming Software Supplier’ award and the SBC 2022 ‘Casino / Slot Developer’ of the Year. However, the company is not up for an award and is here to sponsor this GGA 2022 Las Vegas ‘Digital Product of the Year’ category. It just so happens one of Relax Gaming’s fiercest competitors is in the running – Red Tiger Gaming.

Other notable brands that are up for awards include Light & Wonder, IGT, Greentube, Evolution Pariplay, Inspired Entertainment, Novomatic Americas, and the White Hat Gaming aggregator platform is also attending the event.

When & Where is GGA 2022 Las Vegas? Gary Roudette, the CEO of Players Publishing is the host of the Global Gaming Awards. The ceremony will take place over 4 days 10-13 October. The Venetian Expo – Las Vegas NV.
