As the first round of nominations for the iGaming IDOL awards have been released, several of the nominees have taken to social media to celebrate the recognition.
The iGaming IDOL 2021 awards, due to be held on 20th October at the Mediterranean Conference Centre in Valletta, will bring together the crème de la crème of the Malta iGaming industry, promoting the most talented individuals in the sector.
