It has been a hard and stressful period for some of the companies who battled daily by reaching out to their clients base and asking for feedback via votes to help them climb the charts and be included in the shortlist for inaugural Baltic and Scandinavian Gaming Awards (BSG Awards).

During March, the industry had the chance to cast their votes online for their favorite operators, software suppliers, and connected service providers and help them reach the Top 5 for their respective categories.

The online voting closed on the 31st of March at midnight and we are happy to announce that a total of 28641 votes have been submitted during the session and all companies who made the shortlist should feel proud about this achievement.

With the inaugural Baltic and Scandinavian Gaming Awards, which is part of MARE BALTICUM Gaming Summit, we have implemented a new voting system that has further increased the transparency of the session. We are happy to say that many companies have expressed their gratitude about the transparency of the awards and we would like to congratulate every company who has made it to the shortlist and even those who haven’t for their commitment to the awards. We now head to Vilnius for the final stage where the attending delegates of the conference will cast their votes to decide the winners of each category, continuing the mission of giving the jury authorship to the industry when it comes to deciding the winners.” commented Zoltán Tűndik, Co-Founder, Co-Owner and Head of Business at European Gaming Media and Events.

The shortlists for each category can be found below and as mentioned in the statement, the winners will be decided by the attending delegates via final voting session at the second edition of MARE BALTICUM Gaming Summit, which will take place on the 9th of May in Vilnius, Lithuania at Radisson Blu Royal Astorija Hotel.
