SAZKA Group commits to headline sponsorship at Global Regulatory Awards 2020

12 December 2019

By supporting the GRAs as headline sponsor, the pan-European Lottery operator and World Lottery Association (WLA) member SAZKA Group recognises the importance of the event, now in its fourth year.

The independently adjudicated awards are the biggest of their kind in gambling, celebrating and rewarding excellence in social responsibility, with the GRAs growing in importance as the industry moves towards an ever-greater culture of compliance.

The GRAs, run by Gambling Compliance, the leading provider of legal, regulatory and business intelligence to the global gambling industry, features 18 categories recognising individuals and teams who work tirelessly to set new standards in responsible gambling.

Many former award recipients have seen their reputations as leaders in regulatory compliance and responsible gambling enhanced after receiving GRAs recognition, the highest honour in this specialist field.

Winners are selected by an independent panel of expert judges lead by an external independent adjudicator, ensuring the GRAs are the most high-quality and transparent awards in the gambling industry.

Nominations are now open to both individuals, teams, businesses and industry newcomers and veterans alike. Entrants have until 14th February 2020 to submit their award nominations so don’t delay!

Radek Nemecek, Head of Investor Relations at SAZKA Group, said: “Responsible gaming, player protection, regulatory compliance and social responsibility are at the very core of our business and therefore we see this sponsorship opportunity as a perfect match.”

Frances Fenemore, Chief Marketing Officer at Gambling Compliance, said: “We are proud to have SAZKA Group as headline sponsor. As an organisation with a strong focus on responsible gambling, that cites player protection as part of their DNA, they are the ideal fit for the event and the ethos of the GRAs.”

Launched in 2017, the GamblingCompliance Global Regulatory Awards recognise and celebrate individuals and teams who work tirelessly to set new standards in compliance and responsible gambling. Judged by an independent panel of adjudicators, the winners will be announced at a black-tie event at the iconic De Vere Connaught Rooms in the heart of London.
