Group was judged in the B category, the second largest. Other winners in the B category included the Indianapolis Star, Las Vegas Review-Journal, Omaha World-Herald, Charlotte Observer, Orlando Sentinel and Detroit News.

Senior writer Bill Ordine was named Top 10 in the Projects category for a series of stories explaining the major trends impacting gambling in the U.S. in 2020 and what it meant for the future of gaming in America. The project was also guided by how the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic has reshaped life.

Among those issues: a surge in people wanting to play from home; the move to a cashless society; the big business of gaming companies going public; the importance of protecting consumers as both states and the federal government (IRS) wade into a Brave New World; and the confusing, risky and changing world of offshore sportsbooks..
