AskGamblers Awards is a prestigious iGaming event that rewards operators’ quality and innovation by chiefly relying on players’ votes; it is precisely this quality that makes AG Awards a unique standout within the industry.
The AskGamblers Awards is a respected annual ceremony gathering players and industry experts from around the globe in the voting sessions that select the best of the best in the iGaming industry.
In existence since 2017, AG Awards is recognised as authentic casino awards among similar industry events, as it is the only one relying on real player opinions as the primary parameter in nominating and voting for the competing candidates. For this, and many other things, AskGamblers Awards continually enjoys the reputation of a valued industry authority.
The AskGamblers Awards categories are:
The AskGamblers Awards ends in an elegant, entertaining, and luxurious evening – the AskGamblers Awards Night when the winners are announced and celebrated by everyone present.
No recognitions or awards can be staged or bought in the AskGamblers Awards nominations/prizes, as the "Get the truth, then play" motto lives on as an underlying mantra of AskGamblers since 2006 and does not stand to be compromised.
The AskGamblers Awards has three phases:
Each phase is unique and players make a crucial part in each of the three stages.
The nomination phase is carried out by AskGamblers players who decide on the runner-ups in the available categories.
Nominations last for approximately two months, and the process of nomination is fairly simple. Once the start of the nomination period is announced, the players are encouraged to put their favorites forward in the available categories and potentially help them earn the title of the "Best of the Year".
In the nominations phase, the available categories are:
As soon as the nominations phase ends and the finalists are chosen, the voting phase begins. Only the top 10 candidates filtered in the nomination phase enter the voting phase.
Once the ranking of the nominees is drawn up, the top 10 finalists get announced, and the voting phase officially begins.
The voting phase is split into two stages.
First, players vote for their favourites within the 10 finalists split into Best Casino, Best New Casino, Best New Slot, Best Provider categories.
They now cast a definite vote among the final 10 by clicking “vote” next to the casino or slot displayed on the AskGamblers’ website. This is how they select their favourite in the run, in each category.
Second, four teams of AskGamblers professionals get included in the voting process to decide on the definitive industry names, each in their category, that will go home with a prize.
In the final voting stage, the collective of the players’ and AskGamblers' expert votes decide the winner.
The two extra categories are:
These two categories list names chosen solely by AskGamblers professionals, players are not included in this nomination/voting process.
The Player's Choice category is a standalone category that lists the best casino based on players’ opinions only.
The AG Awards Annual Ceremony is a recognised iGaming industry event, traditionally held in Belgrade, Serbia.
It gathers packed crowds of industry professionals who delight in networking, glamorous programs, and fun activities that seek to quench everyone’s tastes.
Straight between various performances, dancing, and mingling, it is precisely the moment of the Winners Announcements that creates a gut-tugging but captivating atmosphere, which, following, ends in joy, glamour, and celebration of the newly announced winners.
The live stream of the AG Awards is an addition to the ceremony, enabling those who could not make it to the event to be a part of it.
AskGamblers Awards Charity Night is an event customarily dedicated to raising funds to support charity organisations in need of monetary and/or other support. It takes place a day before the AskGamblers Awards Night, and it’s a separate gala affair of its own.
The Charity gathers industry professionals for networking opportunities and fun, lined with a united goal - to raise money that will later be donated to those less fortunate.
Thanks to our partners, AskGamblers has managed to raise sustainable amounts of money for charity throughout the years.
Due to the current circumstances, AskGamblers Awards Night 2021 will be held virtually and live-streamed. All other stages of the Awards remain the same.
The qualifying eligibility period for all nominations is the calendar year from April 2021 through May, setting voting in motion by the end of it.
Traditionally held a day before the AskGamblers Awards Night, the AskGamblers Awards Charity Night will, this time around, take place the same day as the AskGamblers Awards Night and will also be held online, an hour before the casino awards.
Despite gathering online, the AG Awards attendees will, undeniably, go ahead with as much enthusiasm and passion as always.
Precise information on the nomination dates and other relevant information concerning AskGamblers Awards will be disclosed shortly. Follow our website to stay up to date.
