The Decision-Making Process
18 November – 16 December

Entries/nominations in The British Casino Awards will be subject to one of two rigorous decision-making processes, as detailed below:

Industry Vote & Judging Panel

In the majority of categories, the decision-making process will begin with an online industry vote – which will allow professionals to make their voices heard and produce a shortlist of five per category.

This shortlist will then be reviewed by a panel of independent industry experts, who will decide upon the ultimate winner in each category.

The Awards that will be  decided by this two-part process are:

  • All ‘Operator’ categories
  • All ‘Product’ categories

Judging Panel Only

A number of categories will not be subject to the online vote and will instead proceed straight to the judging panel.

The independent panel of anonymous industry experts will review each entry/nomination against a strict set of criteria and determine a shortlist, and ultimately the winner, for the following accolades:

  • National Casino Forum Diversity and Inclusion Award
  • Casino International Outstanding Contribution Award
  • Rising Star
  • Corporate Training Investment Award
  • CHIPS Community Engagement Award
  • CHIPS Corporate Community Engagement Award
  • Lifetime Achievement Award
