The American Gambling Awards recognizes the work of companies, organizations, and individuals that help expand the regulated online casino and sports betting market in the US.
With 2022 close to an end, they’re one step away from announcing this year’s winners in all 12 categories. All winners will receive a Golden Eagle trophy which serves as a trustworthy symbol. When an online casino or sports betting site achieves this award, consumers are guaranteed that they’re dealing with an honest and reliable operator.
All winners are invited to an exclusive VIP dinner at the acclaimed Carbone Restaurant in New York City in December, famous for its celebrity clientele. The trophy, designed by the Society Awards, is also behind the trophies of top-class events like the Oscars, Golden Globes, and Emmys. Winners will be announced on the week of November 14.
How it’s done
A panel of judges reviews the activity for each nominee during a 12-month period. They evaluate important areas such as published financial information, demonstrated growth, and customer protection incentives, among others.
