The 2022 American Gambling Awards is a great indicator of where to play, bet, what services to consider, and even what live dealer games are the best. As the name suggests, these awards focus on the legal American gambling market, not just for casinos, but sportsbook as well.
While some states are still new to the legalized online industry, states such as New Jersey has proven to be an excellent indicator of who is the best in the market. The 2022 AGA featured over 40 finalists in all the categories combined, but as we all know, there can only be one winner of the golden eagle statue. There are four major categories highlighting the achievements of the US online casino market, including:
Online Casino of the Year 2022
The online casino of the year award aims to highlight the best overall player package. This doesn’t only include the games available, but promotions, fairness, security, payment speeds and much more. While the competition was fierce, it’s easy to see why BetMGM Casino claimed the eagle.
Gaming Product of the Year 2022
The gaming product of the year award went to the game that stands out the most. It’s not about the biggest winnings or the most bonus features, but rather how it all comes together for an incredible gaming experience. Once again, multiple top-rated casino games made the finals, but it’s no surprise that Evolution Gaming’s Lighting Roulette managed to claim first place.
Payment Service Provider of the Year 2022
The payment service provider of the year award looks at the growth in the US market and how easily accessible it is. Of course, security, fast withdrawals, and availability also make a bit difference here. While most would consider PayPal to be the leader, it was Sightline’s Play+ that claimed the award, thanks to their incredible low fees, faster withdrawals, security, and availability with just about all US online casinos.
Regulator of the Year 2022
The regulator of the year award looks for gaming commissions that manage to offer the safest, most secure, and reliable market growth. While many new commissions have joined the online market in the US, there’s simply no denying the incredible achievements of Louis Rogacki from the New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement.
