The very first Women in Gaming Awards took place September 24th, very appropriately in London, the global center of the iGaming universe.

Additional highlights from the night include the beautiful feminine décor of the Awards Ceremony venue thanks to Svetlana, the delicious pink champagne upon entry, a tasty three course meal and live music, Nicky Senyard’s countless award nominations, and the CalvinAyre.com CEO Fawn Labrie’s nomination for Star of the Year Award and CalvinAyre.com Reporter and International Socialite Becky Liggero’s nomination (that’s me!) for inspiration of the year award.
Congrats to all the nominees, thank you to all those who attended in support of their colleagues, friends and loved ones, and for all those industry men who complain that all iGaming events are a complete sausage fest, you better be there next year!
