Gambling.com Group announces finalists for 2022 American Gambling Awards

17 October 2022

(PRESS RELEASE) -- Gambling.com Group Limited, a leading provider of player acquisition services for the regulated global online gambling industry, today announced finalists across 12 categories for the 2022 edition of the American Gambling Awards. The nominations for each award category will now be evaluated by one of the most distinguished panels of expert judges the industry has seen, all of whom have United States-specific online gambling industry experience. They include many founders and CEOs from the best-known gaming operators and technology companies in the industry.

As with previous years, Gambling.com will present the winners with the American Gambling Awards’ exclusive Golden Eagle trophy – the icon of achievement in the regulated American market for online gambling – engraved with their details. Produced by Society Awards -- the firm that produces the Emmys, American Music Awards and MTV Movie Awards -- the Golden Eagle trophy is an 11-inch, gold-plated, cast-pewter statuette of an American Bald Eagle, proudly resting in front of a pile of casino chips.

“After announcing the return of the American Gambling Awards in August, we received great feedback around the digital program and our celebration party in New York,” said Charles Gillespie, Chief Executive Officer of Gambling.com Group. “We are pleased to announce a strong list of finalists that represents the full spectrum of industry leaders who are paving the way in the regulated American online gambling market.”

The 2022 American Gambling Awards will recognize winners in a series of announcements in November, in lieu of a traditional awards event. Gambling.com Group will then host American Gambling Awards winners, judges and other invited partners at an exclusive VIP dinner at the start of December in New York at Carbone. The intimate celebration will serve as a culmination of the program and will commemorate a year of remarkable industry success.
