iGaming Idol doubles in size, sets new industry standard

The second iGaming Idol Awards saw NetEnt take home most awards, followed by Mr Green and Jackpot Joy. Robin Ramm Ericson and Gustaf Hagman of Leo Vegas won Outstanding Contribution to the Industry.

Attended by 430 iGaming executives, employees, friends and 18 new ‘Idols of the Year’, the event took place at the Hilton Malta, St Julian’s.

Guests were welcomed with champagne before being hosted to a three-course dinner and a night of glitz and glamour by personalities like Michael Caselli, editor in chief of iGaming Business, and Rebecca Liggero from Calvin Ayre.

Michael Pedersen, CEO of iGaming Idol, said: “iGaming Idol is all about the recognition of individuals and giving employees within the industry their due importance. Supporting charity and giving back to the community is another pillar of iGaming Idol and we are thrilled to donate more than €12,000 to the Malta Community Chest Fund this year.”

Silvio Schembri, Parliamentary Secretary for Financial Services, Digital Economy and Innovation, delivered the opening speech, praising the organisers for their innovative concept in recognising the talent behind the industry’s success. He congratulated the finalists, saying it was encouraging to see a good number of Maltese had made the list in several categories.

The evening culminated with the 16 winners taking home the ‘Idol of the Year’ title within their respective categories. The finalists were put through a rigorous process including being interviewed by expert judges from the same category.

In addition to the 16 Idols, prestigious awards were given out to Robin Ramm Ericson and Gustaf Hagman of Leo Vegas for winning ‘Outstanding Contribution to the Industry’ as well as Catena Media for taking home ‘Employer of the Year’.

The iGaming Idol Awards are fully audited by BDO Malta, an affiliate organisation of BDO International.
