Playtech, NetEnt, Pariplay and Many More Scoop Prizes at the EGR B2B 2018 Awards
- June 25, 2018 By Oliver Young -
Every company’s dream is to get recognition for its hard work and one of the most reputable such recognitions in the online gambling industry are the EGR B2B Awards. This year, the EGR B2B Awards ceremony was held at the Hurlingham Club in London and celebrated the industry’s top service providers in a wide range of categories.
All the innovations and high-quality products by leading names in the industry were rated by a team of external judges. Several popular award categories include gaming software, mobile platform and gaming networks. Companies had the opportunity to enter the competition from 27th February 2018 to 27th of April 2018, whereas the winners were revealed during an awards ceremony that took place on 20th June 2018.
Each year consumers’ favourite gambling companies such as NetEnt, Microgaming and Playtech go home with at least one award. This year was not any different as all these providers got a recognition for one or more of their services.
Play’n GO Takes Home Award for Slot Provider of the Year
With more than 20 categories, there was an award for pretty much all well-established providers to win something. Play’n GO, for example, scooped the prestigious Slot Provider of the Year award thanks to their remarkable releases such as Sweet Alchemy, Moon Princess and Viking Runecraft. Commenting on the award, the company’s CEO Johan Törnqvist said that it was an honour to win such an award and promised to keep innovating.
Gamevy was awarded the Skill Games Supplier recognition, whereas Bede Gaming took the Bingo Supplier award. Microgaming, another giant in the industry, had to be satisfied with a single award – the one for Poker Network. In a similar scenario, the well-known casino provider NetEnt was given a single award; to nobody’s surprise, the company was complimented for Innovation in Mobile. This may be disappointing to the company as in the past they used to take the centre stage and win multiple awards.
Yggdrasil Gaming was the other software provider to scoop an innovation-related award; namely, the company was praised for its Innovation in RNG Casino Software, while BetConstruct was the one to scoop the Innovation in Sports Betting Software. Lastly, the Innovation in Slot Provision award was given to Pragmatic Play.
Another online gambling company to receive two awards was Red Tiger Gaming scooping the RNG Casino Supplier and Mobile Supplier of the Year prizes. Gamban, on the other hand, received the inspirational Software Rising Star for its access blocking product for gambling sites and apps.
Playtech Wins Big
Playtech seems to be the company with the most reasons to celebrate. Namely, the provider’s poker software earned them the Poker Software of the Year award, recognizing the company’s constant improvement of its platform and services.
More important, however, is probably the Platform of the Year award, which was also given to Playtech. This particular recognition is often considered the most important one and the competition shortlisted for it included Microgaming, NetEnt, Nektan and several other leading names as well. The company was thrilled to share the news with its fans, calling the awards “a reflection of hard work and inspiration” provided by everyone at the Playtech Group.
