For immediate release
Vienna, 13 February 2012

At a sell-out awards ceremony in London on 23 January 2012, Casinos Austria International was voted “Casino Operator of the Year Europe” for the fourth time. The Casinos Austria Group’s European operations currently include 36 casinos in 11 countries (Austria, Belgium, Czech Republic, Denmark, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Romania, Serbia, Switzerland, UK).

This was the fifth year in succession that the company had received an International Gaming Award – in addition to “Casino Operator of the Year Europe” in 2008, 2009 and 2011, Casinos Austria International was voted “Socially Responsible Casino Operator of the Year” in 2010.

Chairman Karl Stoss sees the award as recognition of the company’s clear strategy and team spirit: “We are proud to have received this award, which recognizes our achievements in a difficult market environment. We are also very proud of the dedicated staff in our casinos in Europe and beyond. It is thanks to their efforts that we win such awards and can look forward to continued success well into the future.”

About the International Gaming Awards

International Gaming Awards were presented in a total of 19 categories in 2012, with winners selected in an extensive judging process by a series of juries made up of leading international industry professionals, journalists, analysts, consultants and representatives of the main sponsors. The “Casino Operator of the Year” award is presented to the operator who has consistently and decisively dominated the casino sector in its region during the year. Judges were looking for operators who have the vision, originality and vitality to set themselves apart from others in a crowded market environment. Finalists were judged not on their size, but on aspects like brand identity, marketing, customer service, innovation and use of new technologies.
