STOCKHOLM, March 26, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- The American Gambling Awards is a new awards program designed to recognize excellence in the American market for regulated online gambling. Winners will be announced on June 18, 2019 at a party hosted by fantasy sports analyst, New York Times best-selling author and host of The Fantasy Show on ESPN+, Matthew Berry.
The American Gambling Awards is the first awards program dedicated to the regulated American market as well as the first program to exclusively focus on online gambling. The inaugural edition includes 14 award categories covering the regulated operators supplying the U.S. market as well as industry supporters, policymakers, lawyers and regulators who play a vital role in developing the American online gambling market.
Charles Gillespie, Chief Executive of Gambling.com Group Plc, explains, "The future of the American gambling industry is online and the achievements of the key contributors helping to make this happen deserve to be highlighted. Apart from recognizing the operators in the industry, I am most excited to reward the good work of individuals and organizations that are pressing for modern, competent regulation across the various levels of American government. These advocates for mobile wagering, sensible tax regimes, reasonable licensing regulations and a free market approach deserve to see their efforts properly recognized."
The nominations for each award category will be evaluated by a panel of more than 20 expert judges, all of whom have U.S. specific expertise. Panel members include; David Briggs, CEO, GeoComply, Jim Ryan, CEO, Pala Interactive and Seth Young, Chief Innovation Officer, PointsBet USA. To ensure the highest possible integrity, the votes of the expert judges will be tallied by PricewaterhouseCoopers.
