Established in 2017, the AskGamblers Awards is an auspicious ceremony commemorating the best of the best in the iGaming industry. As one of the pre-eminent award ceremonies for online casinos and iGaming content providers, the AG Awards has become one of the most anticipated events on the calendar.
The AskGamblers Awards recognise quality, innovation, and excellence across the board, courtesy of five primary awards categories, and two extra categories (highlighted in bold). These include the AG Awards for:

  • Best Casino
  • Best Provider
  • Best New Slot
  • Players’ Choice  
  • Best New Casino
  • Best Affiliate Program
  • Best Affiliate Manager

Overall, the AG Awards nomination process typically relies on player votes. As one of the pre-eminent iGaming operators, 888casino was nominated for the AskGamblers Award in the Best Affiliate Partner Category. This unique category is closed to public voting, and only AG Awards team members are able to vote for a winner.

Unlike other categories at the AG Awards Ceremony, voting for the Best Affiliate Partner Category is undertaken in-house by the AskGamblers Team. This shortlist of 10 companies will be assessed from top to bottom based on their overall offering in the affiliate partner category. 

The voting closes on Thursday, June 16, 2022. Once all the voting is finalized, and the results approved by the AG Awards ceremony board, the winners will be announced for each specific category. The 5th AskGamblers Awards ceremony is being showcased in grand style in Belgrade, Serbia.

The AG Awards Nomination & Voting Process

There are three stages in the nominations and voting process at AG Awards ceremonies. These include the following:

  • Stage #1 – Nomination
  • Stage #2 – Voting
  • Stage #3 – AG Awards ceremony

Typically, the nomination stage is undertaken by AskGamblers players. They decide which companies are runner ups in the specific categories. The nomination stage of proceedings takes place over a period of two months. Players recommend their favourite operators for each of the specific categories mentioned. This part of the process goes a long way toward the title Best of the Year.
During the nomination stage of proceedings, there are three set categories, notably Best Casino, Best New Casino, and Best New Slot. Finalists are selected at the conclusion of the nomination stage. That's when the voting phase of proceedings begins. The top 10 candidates from the nomination stage make it through to the voting stage.
The AskGamblers Awards ceremony assesses 10 finalists in each category. This year’s nominees include the following options:
