Mobile Gaming Giant Playtech 2017 WIGsThe say just being nominated for an award is an honor. That couldn’t be more true for mobile gaming giant Playtech, who has received a phenomenal 14 nominations for the upcoming 2017 Women in Gaming Awards (WIGs) .

With 14 award categories at this year’s WIGs ceremony (plus the judge’s choice Industry Pride of the Year Award), the fact that Playtech received 14 nominations is an accolade in itself. There are only two categories in which the mobile gaming firm’s name does not appear. However, the women of Playtech did receive 3 (of 8) nominations in a single category.
