The history of awards in iGaming
An inflation in awards and “expert judges”
During the past 10 years we’ve seen a significant increase in award shows in the iGaming industry, with hundreds of awards handed out every year.
The existing awards are all very focused on the award show with winners selected by a group of “industry experts” reviewing nominations submitted by the bookmakers themselves. The transparency is limited with little information shared about the process, nominations and most importantly the reasoning behind the award decisions.
At iGCXA we’re taking a very different approach. We do not have any influence on the outcome and neither do any “industry experts”. Only real players are judges; and we ask thousands of them. Every award also comes with a detailed analysis of the performance, all publicly available on our site. We’re all about data.
So how can we afford such expensive quantitative research required for this data-driven award series? We are owned by iGamingIntel.com, a company specializing in survey research in the iGaming industry, and we tap into existing data for these awards.
