NetEnt’s Divine Fortune Megaways Named GGA Product Launch of the Year
- July 5, 2021 By Riley Wilson -
Over the past year or so, we’ve been hearing a lot about NetEnt’s flagship Divine Fortune Megaways. It was an interesting and ambitious product from the get-go, blending progressive features and Megaways mechanics. Now, the numbers are in, and the game was named the Global Gaming Award’s Product Launch of the Year.
Hand-picked by Industry Leaders
If you were not aware, the Global Gaming Awards is one of the most prestigious awards of the gambling industry. This applies to both online and traditional gambling, of course, and is powered by the Gambling Insider publication. This year, two separate events were held in London and Las Vegas, and most of the voting was done online due to Covid-19.
The Awards are given out each year based on input from the CEOs of leading gaming companies and a panel of industry insider judges. According to these judges, Divine Fortune Megaways topped the most-played rankings in multiple key markets. The US and Europe were primary considerations in the London GGA event – and this progressive slot game swept through both.
The runner-up position went to WowPot by Microgaming, while third place went to Greentube’s From Dusk Till Dawn 10. The Global Gaming Awards Product Launch of the Year is one of the most highly respected categories in the event. It often showcases some of the most interesting and innovative titles from the past year.
A Blend of Beloved Features
Looking back, Divine Fortune Megawatts seemed to be destined for success. After all, few casino products are as popular as progressive jackpot slots. Moreover, Megaways slots have been dominating the online slot game market for years now. Combining the two seems like an obvious choice, but it had to be done well. And Microgaming delivered in more ways than one.
Gavin Hamilton, the Commercial Director at Evolution and one of the judges, had this to say:
“Divine Fortune Megaways has been a significant commercial success in all our markets and we’re thrilled to see that endorsed by the judges at the Global Gaming Awards. It is some accolade to be named Product Launch of the Year, considering how many amazing titles were released during the last 12 months.”
