31 August 2022

(PRESS RELEASE) -- Group Limited, a leading provider of player acquisition services for the regulated global online gambling industry, today announces the return of the American Gambling Awards after pausing the program in 2021 due to Covid-19. The American Gambling Awards launched in 2019 as the first awards program dedicated exclusively to the online gambling market in the United States. The 2022 program will celebrate the significant growth and increased cultural acceptance that regulated, betting and gaming has enjoyed over the past four years, expanding to more than 30 states – with more expected to come online soon. Group’s 2022 American Gambling Awards will feature 12 award categories recognizing the regulated operators active in the U.S. market, as well as industry service providers, policymakers, attorneys, regulators and others who play a vital role in developing the American online gambling market.

The nominations for each award category will be evaluated by a panel of distinguished expert judges, all of whom have U.S.-specific experience.

As with previous years, winners will receive the American Gambling Awards’ exclusive Golden Eagle trophies, engraved with their details. Produced by Society Awards -- the firm that produces the Oscars, Golden Globes and Emmys -- 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.

New this year, the 2022 program will recognize winners with individual, personalized announcements in lieu of a traditional awards event. Group will host American Gambling Awards winners, judges and other invited partners at an exclusive VIP dinner at the world-renowned Carbone restaurant in New York City in December. The intimate celebration will serve as a culmination of the program and will commemorate a year of remarkable industry success.

Charles Gillespie, Chief Executive Officer of Group, said, “I am really excited to relaunch the American Gambling Awards. It is so important that the good work of all of the key players in this industry are recognized – especially on the policy side. As more states regulate, it is critical that policymakers look to past successes rather than attempting to re-invent the wheel. The American Gambling Awards is meant to shine a light on the public policy that delivers, guiding future policymakers to the approaches that we believe works best for consumers. We look forward to a fabulous evening at Carbone to celebrate not only the winners but the great momentum in the American online gambling industry.”

Nominations for the 12 award categories are now open. Other key dates include:
