About This Year’s Awards

Casino Journal's Top 20 Most Innovative Gaming Technology Products Awards 2015

Casino Journal's Top 20 Most Innovative Gaming Technology Products Awards are recognized as the most prestigious honor bestowed on gaming products and services. In its eighteenth year, the competition recognizes the most innovative technology offerings in the gaming industry. Industry vendors are invited to submit product nominations for their newest, most creative and technologically advanced products and services.

It is important to note that these are gaming technology awards.
A new slot game title or game theme will not be accepted unless it
specifically involves a new and innovative technology.

A panel of judges representing a cross-section of the industry will evaluate this year’s entries and choose the 20 finalists, which will be featured in the June edition of Casino Journal. The judges will then select the top three products and services from among the 20 finalists, and they will receive platinum, gold and silver medals in honor of their achievements. An "Attendee Choice Award" also will be presented based on votes from the Casino Marketing & Technology Conference attendees who will select their favorite from among the Top 20. All awards will be presented at the annual Casino Marketing & Technology Conference July 12-14, 2016, at Paris, Las Vegas. The top four winners will also be highlighted in the August edition of Casino Journal.
