16th Annual Gaming & Technology Awards

The GGB Gaming & Technology Awards are the casino industry’s most prestigious awards for technology, products and services that enhance the gaming experience. The honors are designed to recognize and encourage innovation and technology in the rapidly changing casino industry. Winners will be announced in the November 2016 issue of Global Gaming Business magazine and a special ceremony with press coverage will be held at Global Gaming Expo (G2E), September 26-29, 2016 at the Sands Expo Center in Las Vegas.

Nominations are now open in the following 4 categories (Deadline is August 5, 2016):

Best Consumer-Service Technology

Whether it is an enhanced kiosk, a new player-tracking system, reservations system, or parking management system, or any other customer-friendly device, this technology directly impacts the experience of the customer. Why is this a step up from previous technologies?

Best Productivity-Enhancement Technology
This category describes a technology that makes a job or task easier and more efficient. Examples could be an online accounting system, better technology for printing tickets on cashless slots, or an employee communications devise that allows a property to better explain its programs to its workers. How does this technology improve on the way the task or job had been previously performed?

Best Slot Product
