Slots specialist Play’n Go and its staff have been recognised ahead of the 2018 Women in Gaming Awards, with seven nominations across a range of categories. The awards ceremony takes place at London’s Savoy Hotel on May 11.

Play’n Go has been nominated in both the Company of the Year and Best Place to Work categories, while the firm’s female employees are the subject of several individual nominations.

Liana Mifsud is selected in the Employee of the Year category; Irina Tyberg picks up a nomination for Hidden Talent of the Year (Operator) and Maria Nilsson is in the running for Industry Achiever.

Two Play’n Go employees are up against one another in the Leader of the year (iGaming) category, with Ebba Arnred and Lena Yasir nominated.

Play’n Go will be hoping to build on its success at last year’s awards, at which it collected the Diversity Award.

Johan Törnqvist, CEO at Play’n Go, said: “I’d like to congratulate not just the many individuals who’ve been nominated for a 2018 Women in Gaming award, but also all of those within our organisation who continue to shape our culture for the better and go above and beyond.

“At Play’n Go, we want to make sure we build a culture that is suited to both men and women, and although a large proportion of our workforce is female, there’s more we can do to ensure diversity and inclusivity is entrenched in every level of our hierarchy.”
