The first ever American Gambling Awards™ presented by Gambling.com were held on June 18th. The ceremony recognizes the most influential companies and individuals in the online gambling space in America. Fourteen categories are awarded, with honors including American Operator of the Year, Policymaker of the Year and Industry Supporter of the Year. Many deserving and talented individuals and organizations made it to the finalists lists but only one stand out honoree per category received the prestigious Golden Eagle award designed for the event.
This new custom trophy is well on its way to becoming an industry icon. Not only is it a gorgeous sculpture presented by an industry titan, its design is imbued with meaningful imagery. The central form is an American Bald Eagle in a proud stance to signify the industry’s strong American history (the trophy is also crafted in the US). The eagle is styled with a prismatic surface that alludes to the increasingly digital nature of the gambling industry. The sculpture is completed with staggered stacks of chips signifying a win. Finally the entire form is finished in a gleaming polished gold surface. The striking and artful form is presented atop a tall black base, over which the eagle’s tail extends slightly. It is an award unlike any other and fitting recognition for a major accomplishment.
