The Online Casinos Awards 2008 Just Around the Corner
Oggs.com has long been the website of record when it comes to giving out online casino awards as for a number of years now they have been honoring excellence in the online casino industry. Their excellence starts with nominations of course, just like every other awards process and it is a sure sign that things are starting to be put in motion vis-à-vis the awards process when the site releases their nominations for the various categories. The nominations represent the contenders for each award within the grand scheme of their Global Online Casino Awards 2008.
The first awards category is the Best Online Casino for US Residents in 2008. There are five casinos that have made the nomination list in this category and they are All Slots Casino, Club USA Casino, iNetBet Casino, Intertops Casino and Jackpot City Casino. All five of these casinos are well known online casinos within the United States context and according to an analyst within the online casino industry that asked not to be named, any one of these online casinos would deserve to win the award. The general feeling at the moment is that Club USA Casino is in the running for the award, but with such a high class and competitive field, anything could happen in the end.
There is also a Best Online Casino for UK Residents in 2008 award and that award also has five different nominees. The nominees for the award are 32 Red Online Casino, Canbet Online Casino, Ladbrokes Online Casino, Paddy Power Online Casino and Virgin Online Casino. Once again the feeling is that all five are very deserving of the award and for that reason while someone might be tempted to guess Paddy Power for this award, the closeness of the competition means that as an overall category is really is just too close to call.
Finally, there is also a Best Online Casino for EU Residents in 2008 award which once again has five nominees: 32 Red Online Casino, Bet 365 Casino, Ladbrokes Online Casino, InterCasino and Roxy Palace Online Casino. Both 32 Red and Ladbrokes deserve a fair amount of praise for making it on the lists for both the United Kingdom and the European Union. There are several online casinos out there that specialize their services for one of the two regions, so to make the best of list for both regions is definitely an accomplishment in and of itself. Even if neither of them win an award, to be recognized as being among the top five without specializing in either region is fantastic for their public relations office.
Other awards that will be handed out during the Online Casino Awards 2008 will be the Best New Online Casino in 2008, the Best New Slot Machine in 2008 and the Best Overall Online Casino Group in 2008. Oggs.com is keeping the winners close to their chest for the moment, but you will be able to see the winners at the end of the year on their website.
