An individual and a team Excellence in Gaming Award were presented at this year’s annual NAGRA Conference.

Congratulations to the Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario (AGCO) for being presented with the Team Award for Demonstrating Excellence in the Gaming Regulatory or Enforcement Environment.

To support the launch of the new competitive internet gaming market (igaming) on April 4, 2022, the Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario (AGCO) worked to develop and implement a regulatory framework for Ontario’s new igaming market. Ontario’s framework is the first of its kind in Canada and meets the unique Canadian legal obligation for provinces to conduct and manage gaming, while creating an attractive market that has brought private operators and their players into the regulated sphere. 

Congratulations to Brett Buckingham from the Colorado Division of Gaming for being presented with the Individual Award for Demonstrating Excellence in the Gaming Regulatory or Enforcement Environment.

Brett is the Agent in Charge Sports Betting and Fantasy SportsAfter sports betting was approved in Colorado in November 2019, Brett immediately stepped up and began developing the process to license sports betting operations and associated businesses. In addition, Brett agreed to oversee the Fantasy Sports program after it was transferred to the Colorado Division of Gaming in September 2020.

An award is given each year at the NAGRA Annual Education and Training Conference to an individual or team who has demonstrated excellence in the field.  Nominations are encouraged and welcomed throughout the year! Please consider the great work being done by a team or individual deserving of this award and nominate them today!
