Celebrity presenter Alexander Armstrong announced the winners across 18 categories. Highlights of the prestigious night include Jennifer Aguiar of DraftKings walking away with the award for Chief Compliance Officer of the Year, while Greentube received the award for Compliance Team of the Year. Flutter Entertainment, Mindway AI and Kambi had nights to remember, receiving two Global Regulatory Awards each, and former Danish regulator Birgitte Sand was recognised with the Compliance Lifetime Achievement Special Award for her progressive work in the field of safer gambling. The full list of 2021 award winners can be found here.

Since their launch in 2017, the independently adjudicated Global Regulatory Awards have become the biggest of their kind, recognising and celebrating those who demonstrate excellence in responsible gambling, and growing in importance as the industry moves towards a stronger culture of compliance.

VIXIO would like to thank this year's awards sponsors, DraftKings, for their support in helping us recognise excellence across the industry. A special thank you also to this year's category sponsors: BetConstruct, Digital Isle of Man, Harris Hagan, Playtech and USAbility Digital, as well as charity partner YGAM. Without the continued support of our sponsors and partners the Global Regulatory Awards would not have been the success they continue to be.

Mike Woolfrey, VIXIO CEO, said: "Congratulations to all our winners. This year the standard was exceptionally high, so winning an award really is a clear demonstration of a dedication towards regulatory compliance and safer gambling. VIXIO is proud to provide a platform to showcase the great work going on within the industry. We were delighted to see that guests from across the globe joined us last night, a true testament to the industry's recovery following the pandemic.”
