If you are hearing of the AskGamblers awards for the first time, all this must be confusing. So let me dumb it down for you. AskGamblers is a popular Online Casino review site founded. It’s arguably the best in the industry. And honestly, in a sea of online casinos, with a couple of hundreds sprouting every so often, the reviews are invaluable. With its online reputation, AskGamblers decided to create an award for the industry.

So far so good?

The AskGamblers Awards 2018 show will be on January the 17th 2019. The gala event will be in Belgrade, Serbia.

And with that, let’s jump right into the categories.

Best Casinos

But even with new entrants, there are some casinos that are throwing it down like the pros they are. They give the industry their best and send a strong message of ‘we are here to stay’. Most of the casinos in this category may not have started out as player favorites they are slowly but surely winning the hearts of players. These casinos prove that hard work and consistency does pay off – eventually. But aside from all that, casinos in this categories all have one thing in common – awesome payouts.

The Nomination Process

For these awards to be valuable, the process followed has to be flawless. AskGamblers has seen to it that this is so. The process has to phases: nomination and voting.


But unlike the 2018 awards, the AskGamblers team relegated the nomination process to the players. This means that this year, and hopefully for the years to come, you’ll have the privilege of nominating your favorite casino to the award. This year’s nomination phase closed on 30th September 2018.

But here’s the thing about this year’s nomination. Though any casino can be nominated for the AskGamblers Awards, only the top 10 make it to the voting phase.


We are currently in the voting phase. This phase started on 1st October 2018 and will be open until 17th January 2019 (the day of the Gala event). During this phase, you’ll vote for any of the casinos on each of the listed categories. Note that the winner in each category is crowned based on the votes cast by players and judges.

It’s also worth noting that this year you’ll have the chance to vote in the ‘Player’s Choice’ category. The winner of this category will be crowned based on the player votes.
